Medical Ghetto

This is one of the best assessments of government-run health care that I've heard to date. Senator Lamar Alexander likens Medicaid to a "medical ghetto."

This bill is historic in its arrogance, dumping 15 million low-income Americans into a medical ghetto called Medicaid that none of us or any of our families would ever want to be a part of for our health care…

…Moving 15 million low-income Americans into a program called Medicaid which is a medical ghetto is not health care reform.

If the Democrats have their way, the entire American health care system will slowly be transformed into a medical ghetto* as leftoids maliciously chip away at privately owned health care systems. American health care would crumble, becoming another unnecessary example of the "Tragedy of the Commons."

*For the race-baiters, here's the definition of ghetto:

a : an isolated group b : a situation that resembles a ghetto especially in conferring inferior status or limiting opportunity

Etymology: Italian, from Venetian dial. ghèto island where Jews were forced to live, literally, foundry (located on the island), from ghetàr to cast, from Latin jactare to throw

It doesn’t feel like it, but we are winning the fight against ObamaCare.

Obama’s decision: We will send 34,000 troops to Afghanistan while laying the groundwork for defeat.

Rasmussen: Obama drops to lowest approval rating (and the Passion Index is down to -15).

Yes, but Michael Moore's magical camera could make that ghetto look oh so appealing if you were squinting.

Yes, I hear he made Cuba look like some kind of Utopia.

I've boycotted MM's movies, so I'm blissfully ignorant.

A medical ghetto already and Congress wants to cut their funding. Great!

Proof: Medicare (for the elderly) would get the theoretical $500 billion in cuts, Medicaid (for the poor) would grow.
