Is this the last chance to pass health care reform? Probably, yes.
If the budget numbers look bad now, imagine them with the whole pool of baby boomers retiring and on Medicare.
The baby boom went until 1964. When the youngest boomers are 70, we'll be at 2034. Twenty-five more years of the younger generation seeing their wages disappear to taxes.
The reason it's the last chance is the reason this bill must die.
