This passage from a recent Leno monologue pretty much captures the essence of government-run health care in general, and Obamacare in particular:
People say, ‘Oh, where do hospitals get the nerve to charge $10 for an aspirin?’ See, this is why President Obama wants to do something about healthcare in this country. See, under his plan, hospital aspirin only costs a dollar maximum. Of course, there would be a $9 tax on it.
It’s funny now. It will a good deal less amusing when the bill comes due. And, make no mistake about it, that bill is coming to a paycheck near you—-and soon.
