Hope, change and the health care bill

Well, they did it. The Democrats passed a bill to destroy the United States of America as we have known it. The health care bill is a major step on the road to socialism.

You have to give them credit. They did a good job framing the debate as if it were a matter of the good- guy Democrats who want poor people to have health care verses the evil Republicans who do not want poor people to have health care.

It is all a lie, of course. No one wants people to be without health care. The difference is that Republicans live in the real world whereas Democrats live in the world of hope and change. They want to radically change America and hope things will turn out for the best.

Do we have any reason to hope things will turn out well?

Has the government managed Social Security well?

No, it’s going bankrupt, but we hope the government will manage the health care better.

Has the government managed Medicare and Medicaid well?

No, they are going bankrupt, but we hope the government will manage health care better.

Has the government managed VA hospitals well?

No, in many V.A. hospitals the conditions were deplorable, but we hope the government will manage health care better.

Did the government oversea Fannie Mae and Freddy Mac well?

No, there was concern that they were going to bankrupt the country, but we hope the government will manage health care better.

Has the government managed Amtrak well?

No, it is going bankrupt, but we hope the government will manage health care better.

Has the government managed the post office well?

No, it is going bankrupt, but we hope they will manage health care better.

Did the government manage the Hurricane Kartina disaster well?

No, their incompetence cost people’s lives, but we hope they will manage health care better.

Has the government controlled illegal immigration well?

No, we have something like 20 million illegals living here, but we hope the government will manage health care better.

Did the government manage cash for clunkers well?

No, but we hope they will manage health care better.

Did the government manage the TARP (Troubled Asset Relief Program) well?

No, it cost the American taxpayer almost a billion dollars, it did not work and is absolutely riddled with corruption, but we hope the government will manage health are better.

Does universal health care work in England?

No, they ration health care in England. People die waiting for health care in England, but we hope it works better in America.

Does universal health care work in Canada?

No, those rich enough to afford it come to America for health care, but we will hope it works better in America.

Democrats live in fantasy land. They have laudable utopian dreams, but their dreams will lead to more and more taxes, more and more government control, more and more corruption, less and less freedom, and will move us ever closer to national bankruptcy.

That’s the change their hope will bring.

If my memory serves me, FDR passed a bill creating the NRA (National Recovery Act). The Supreme Court declared this socialistic program "unconstitutional". After this opinion was rendered FDR tried to "pack the court" by adding additonal judges. I wonder if history will repeat itself with obama at the helm?

Unfortunately, it would not surprise me in the least.

Dennis, the restraint you show in writing about this communist takeover of the health care system is enviable.

St. Lee,

Why yes, I thought I was quite restrained. Now if you'll excuse me, I need to go purchase a new window to replace the one I broke after throwing my TV through it last night ;-)

(Just kidding--but seriously, I was almost physically ill when I went to bed last night after hearing the results.
