In a jaw-dropping act of lunacy, Congress is proposing a tax which would punish people for paying too much for their health insurance, in order to force them to find a more "cost effective" insurance plan. And of course, in the Democrats' opinion the only "cost effective" health insurance will be that offered through their public option (surprise! It's not dead!).
It's hard to imagine anyone else saying that raising the cost of insurance will lower the cost of insurance while keeping a straight face. But then again, Nancy Pelosi always has a straight face...
