“I just tell you, I just see a huge train wreck coming down,” Sen. Max Baucus, D-Mont, warned during a Senate hearing about the looming disaster for Obamacare implementation.

It certainly doesn't look very optimistic, as my colleague Philip Klein has noted.

Below are some of the best movie train wrecks that aptly symbolize the looming Obamacare disaster:

1) The Lone Ranger

It's a train that has reached the end of its rails and crashes because it's track isn't ready. Sound familiar?

Watch all the workers running to get out of the way of the train's colossal destruction. The guy with the flag doesn't stand a chance.

2) Super 8

This one might be a favorite for Democrats. This train was running along just fine - until some obstructionist with a pickup decided to derail it.

But what is inside the train is obviously bad for America.

3) Back to the Future 3

If only Democrats could get into a time machine and change everything wrong with the bill. . .

4) The Fugitive

Yes. Doctors around the nation are looking like Dr. Richard Kimmell trying to escape this monstrosity.


5) Hugo

Turns out, it was just a bad dream. If only that were true.

6) The Bridge on the River Kwai

"What have I done!"
