In his State of the Union address, President Bush proposed tax cuts to make health insurance more affordable for the uninsured. His proposed policy was meant to be so simple and straightforward that this is what Stephen Colbert had to say about it on his daily Report. "Most people who can't afford health insurance also are too poor to owe taxes. But if you give them a deduction from the taxes they don't owe, they can use the money they're not getting back from what they haven't given to buy the health care they can't afford." Genius.
