This Health Care Porridge is Just Right

John Boehner, in October 2009, on why the proposed health care legislation sucks:
"All you need to know is there are 1,990 pages," Boehner said. "That should tell you everything."
John Boehner yesterday on why the proposed health care legislation sucks:
"The White House's 'plan' consists of an 11-page outline, which has not been scored by the Congressional Budget Office or posted online as legislative text. So they want to reorganize one-sixth of the United States' economy with a document shorter than a comic book, and they're complaining that they can't find our plan on their own website? C'mon," said [Boehner's] spokesman, Michael Steel, in an email to reporters.
I'm sure that at some point, the GOP will unveil their new Goldilocks algorithm to determine the precise number of pages necessary for successful health care reform legislation.

So, the real question is: How many pages do we need for single payer?
