Post Office Offers a Clue on ObamaCare's Financial Future

Of all the arrogance displayed by Democrats in their seizure of the healthcare industry, possibly the most insulting is the insolent claim that it will reduce the deficit — as if we were drooling idiots who might actually believe such a preposterous lie. For an idea of what taking over the healthcare industry will do to the budget, just refer to the Post Office's finances:
The U.S. Postal Service is on pace to lose $238 billion over the next 10 years, with annual deficits hitting $33 billion by 2020 — five times the current level…
But that's okay — bureaucrats can just funnel in more taxpayer money. When it runs out, they can just print some more. Socialism doesn't work, but at least it's easy.
