Remember when President Obama warned that without a massive stimulus package, unemployment would reach about 8 percent?

Today, with the massive stimulus package in place, unemployment stands at 9.5 percent – and climbing.

Here’s Obama at his July 22 press conference, making his case for government-run health care: “If we do not act, 14,000 Americans will continue to lose their health insurance every single day.”

So I guess that means that if we do act, we can expect, what, about 18,000 Americans to start losing their health insurance every day?

At which point we’ll no doubt hear that the health care crisis, it turns out, was much worse than the Obama administration realized.
