A Very Brief Moment of Clarity for Obama

In Obama's Montana town hall meeting yesterday he finally had a very brief moment of clarity.

In response to a questioner who asked him how he was going to pay for it he finally admitted: "You are absolutely right. I can't cover another 47 million people for free. I can't do that. We're going to have to find money from somewhere."

Moments of clarity. Aren't they precious?

In past talks he's suggested moving $500B from Medicare to help cover the Trillion-dollar plus price tag. Unfortunately, this defies logic.

If the plan is to assure coverage for ALL Americans, how can you take money from healthcare for one segment of the citizenry and allocate it to another segment, and still provide for both segments needs?

Another fine example of Obamalogic.
