Robbing Peter to pay Paul

Or to be more precise, robbing the young and yet-unborn generations of Americans to pay for healthcare for the current crop:

President Barack Obama on Tuesday proposed budget rules that would allow Congress to borrow tens of billions of dollars and put the nation deeper in debt to jump-start the administration’s emerging health care overhaul.

It would carve out about $2.5 trillion worth of exemptions for Obama’s priorities over the next decade. His health care reform plan also would get a green light to run big deficits in its early years.

This is madness.
