Shouldn’t we know how a bill affects our state before it becomes a law? According to my Governor, Martin O’Malley, the answer is a resounding “Heck, no! We’ll just have us a commission to figure it out afterwards!”.

O’Malley, a Democrat, says he will appoint a commission to study how the sweeping changes will affect Maryland.

The O’Malley administration estimates the federal overhaul could save Maryland about $1 billion over the next 10 years. That, O’Malley says, is because the federal plan will take care of costs from health initiatives now paid for by the state.

Now you know why the phrase “close enough for government work” exists. The Governor doesn’t really know that it’ll save Maryland any money at all. He’s just guessing because, as David Axelrod said, the utopian goodness of the bill isn’t readily apparent just by, you know, reading it (and did you get a chacne to read it? The President promised you’d have the chance.) But it’s okay, you “will understand” because he and the progressives, who are much smarter than you, will “implement” it so that its brilliance becomes instantly obvious.

Funny. I don’t recall the whole “you’ll do what smart liberals tell you to do” thing being in my Constitution. Ah well, it’s probably not all that important. They’re so incredibly smart, so how could this possibly go wrong?
