Bread and Circuses*

Obama’s America, where you never have to pay bills for services you incur:

“It’s just going to be like Christmas,” said DeCarlo Flythe, who lost health coverage for his family when he was laid off almost three years ago. “It’s going to be great. You know, no worries (about) the bills. We are going to go ahead and pay our co-pay and be alright.”

And of course, the timing is right:

Voters will get their first taste of the benefits of health care reform only a few short weeks before the November midterm elections.

They won’t have to swallow most of the bitter pills until much later — well after President Barack Obama faces voters again in 2012.

Match the effective dates of key reform provisions against the election calendar, and it becomes clear that Democrats were as focused on writing a legislative overhaul of the health care system as they were on devising a political road map for selling it to voters.

What a surprise, right?  We’ll give you the world now, and you won’t pay a dime until later. 
Razzle dazzle ’em.  It’s the Chicago way.
*And the AWAD theme this week makes me wonder–it’s all so fitting…
