Charlie Krauthammer verbalizes very well what I merely intimated the other day about Obama’s healthcare numbers not making any sense:

In response, the president retreated to a demand that any bill he sign be revenue-neutral. But that’s classic misdirection: If the fierce urgency of health-care reform is to radically reduce costs that are producing budget-destroying deficits, revenue neutrality (by definition) leaves us on precisely the same path to insolvency that Obama himself declares unsustainable.

The whole thing is worth a read.
