Show me the money!

The blogger from Hourglass1941 attended a health care forum at the Ohio Expo Center on September 1 and decided, after the event, to ask several of the speakers how the federal government was going to pay for all the things promoted in the bill.

Columbus Mayor Michael Coleman, Congresswoman Mary Jo Kilroy and Lt. Gov. Lee Fisher (also a candidate for U.S. Senate to replace retiring Senator George Voinovich) were really not able to explain where the money would come from, with Coleman referring to her as "darlin'" and Fisher talking about a 'fence at the top of the cliff instead of an ambulance below' ... whatever that means.

Why should we be surprised that those asking for our trust to put them into positions of power continue to exhibit a "spend now, think later" philosophy? We have allowed them to run things that way (on both sides of the aisle) for far too long.
