For The Misinformed



In their own words.

**Update: Coming soon to your neighborhood . . .

"Some terminally ill patients in Oregon who turned to their state for health care were denied treatment and offered doctor-assisted suicide instead, a proposal some experts have called a "chilling" corruption of medical ethics." Story here.

**Update 2: Government health care means rationing . . .

"Each time I was told to fax Medicaid for the approval forms, which I did. Within 48 hours the form came back to me which was sent in immediately via fax, and I was told that I would have my answer in 10 days. Of course by then each child would have been blind in the eye. Each time the request came back denied. All three times I personally provided the antibiotic for each patient which was not on the Medicaid approved list. Get the point -- rationing of care."

OK, Richard. Stand by for James to land here explaining that this is nothing more than astroturf supplied by Fox News, that Obama doesn't believe this anymore, or that the tape is a phony.

Right. The White House already tried that on Drudge. No sale. Drudge linked to the full uncut interview - there's no denying Obama's intention. (Maybe it was a ventriloquist) Besides, Frank and the other Congress-idiot clearly shows what the real intent is.

This stuff was much easier to get away with before the blogosphere and Youtube - long live Liberty and freedom of speech!!

Huh, I heard of that (the update) before. Scary huh? Kind of reminds you of the largest war in history.

This reminds me of liberals anti-gun tactics. Basically, they say we just want to ban "assault weapons", next it's handguns, then it's all semi-autos, then it's lead ammo, etc. until your arms are effectively illegal.

Here they want to implement a plan that eventually drives out all private competition leaving you with only the government healthcare option, which undoubtedly will be inefficient with your life.
