Give me HillaryCare

Yahoo News reports:

Fulfilling a pledge to bring health care to all, Clinton's "American Health Choices Plan" has a price tag of about $110 billion per year. It represents her first major effort to achieve universal health coverage since 1994, when the plan she authored during her husband's first term collapsed.

According to the US Census Bureau the 2006 population of Wisconsin was 5,556,506 and the US was 299,398,484. Based on the estimated cost of $15.2 billion for the "Healthy Wisconsin" plan, Hillary's offer of universal healthcare for $110 billion is a savings of over $700 billion.

Either Hillary is offering a helluva bargain or the Wisconsin Senate Democrats are not much at cost negotiations.

How about Door #3 - both Hiliary and the Wisconsin Senate DemonRATs are full of it (with two letters in front of "it").

There is no "cost" when one simply levies taxes.
