    I keep hearing from various talking heads on television business broadcasts statements that after (if) health care is passed the government will be in direct total control of 51% of the economy. I've tried to do research on this but lack the expertise and can't find an article or facts to back the statement up.

    My question.. is this possible...?

    I suspect they won't but I work with some of the best Economists in the world, so I'm not really interested in the opinions of USMB 'experts'. :D:

    I heard one sixth lumpy1. But another TARP like bill has been introduced by Barney Frank and Chris Dodd that could give the govt. control over the rest of the economy.

    The goverment is already directly responsible for nearly 50% of the population's HC, now

    Veterans, active duty, retired military, Medicade, Medicare, various children's HC programs, and government workers.

    I have a fully socialized HC system call the VA.

    Wonderful HC.

    Far better than the private HC insuranced care I used to have, BTW.
