George Bush, King of socialized medicine

Rep. Mike Ross (D-Ark.) -- "It was George W. Bush that passed the largest socialized expansion of our government in my lifetime. It was called Medicare Part D prescription drug program. The 10 year period for it was well over a trillion dollars....The price tag [for Obamacare] is now under a trillion. That is over 10 years. That is less money than what George W. Bush passed."

But of course the Republicans were perfectly okay with that. And with Bush's trillion-dollar tax cut for the rich, which he couldn't pay for, and his trillion-dollar war in Iraq, which he didn't have the money to pay for.
