Two Frauds: Obamacare & HSR
Are the people who support Obamacare in touch with the American people? Are the supporters of HSR in touch with the people of California?

In California it's not just Obamacare that has beee fraudulently thrust upon us. We were also defrauded by high-speed rail. Neither ended up being what was sold to the public. Nevertheless, both continue down the road to completion. To pass the healthcare act President Obama and all the rest of the proponents vehemently denied that it was a tax, but still needed to resort to shennanigans like the Cornhusker Kickback and the Louisiana Purchase to bribe senators for their support. How can something that was sold to the American people as not being a tax, voted on by the House and Senate as not being a tax, and signed by the President as not a tax, somehow be approved by the Supreme Court as a tax?
To pass high-speed rail in California it was originally sold as a $33B project, but after several incarnations including one of $98B, it now purports to cost $68B. Almost everything about it has changed since voters passed it: it costs more, the entire plan is different, it's not really high-speed(but has been changed to low-speed at twice the cost), the ridership numbers have been debunked, the jobs numbers were phoney, the environmental destruction is immense and the timeline for completion is totally wrong.
What's wrong with this picture? Are the people who support Obamacare in touch with the American people? Are the supporters of HSR in touch with the people of California? Can our leaders really look us in the eye and claim to be honest?
Donald Trump on Obamacare:
Let me get this straight . . .
We're going to be "gifted" with a health care plan we are forced to purchase and fined if we don't, which purportedly covers at least ten million more people, without adding a single new doctor, but provides for 16,000 new IRS agents, written by a committee whose chairman says he doesn't understand it, passed by a Congress that didn't read it but exempted themselves from it, and signed by a... President who smokes, with funding administered by a treasury chief who didn't pay his taxes, for which we'll be taxed for four years before any benefits take effect, by a government which has already bankrupted Social Security and Medicare, all to be overseen by a surgeon general who is obese, and financed by a country that's broke!!!!
What the hell could possibly go wrong?
