UPDATE: Pelosi Says "Endgame" is near for Democrat's Healthcare Reform

UPDATE: The Wall Street Journal is calling Nancy Pelosi's 1,990-page government takeover of healthcare the "worst piece of post-New Deal legislation ever introduced."

The Journal says it will create an "unrepealable middle class entitlement" that will cause taxes to "rise precipitously" and will result in "all medicine" being "rationed via politics." The CBO cost estimate is coming in at $1.055 trillion and that's just scratching the surface. The Journal says "ObamaCare will be lucky to cost under $2 trillion over 10 years; it will grow more after that."

In case there was any doubt left that ObamaCare is a massive, tax-increasing power grab, consider what Grassfire unearthed about the words used in Pelosi's bill:

--181 instances of "penalty" or "penalties"
--214 times "taxes" or "tax" is recorded
--82 usages of "fee" and "fees"

..A total of 486 times any form of the words penalty, surcharge, tax, fine or fee are used!

--422 instances of "require," "requires" or "required"
--78 times the words "obligation" or "obligated" occur
--219 usages of "regulation(s)"
--106 times "impose, imposed or imposes" are used

..A total of 609 times any form of the words impose, require, mandate, obligation, license or regulation are used

"This is about the endgame now ... There's no philosophical difference."
--Nancy Pelosi

The clandestine, back-room dealings has meant that Americans have been unable to even see the text of the ObamaCare bill -- yet the deal is being cut right now to pass their "Stealth” bill. We are now bracing for a floor vote in the House as soon as Thursday or Friday.

Many conservative groups are organizing massive protests, including the newly-unified Tea Party Patriots.
