No Health Care For You!

The Democrats' buddies at the New York Times are now singing the virtues of bureaucratic rationing and health care denial panels via the Federal Government:

The federal government is now starting to build the institutions that will try to reduce the soaring growth of health care costs. There will be a group to compare the effectiveness of different treatments, a so-called Medicare innovation center and a Medicare oversight board that can set payment rates...

So figuring out how we can say no may be the single toughest and most important task facing the people who will be in charge of carrying out reform. “Being able to say no,” Dr. Alan Garber of Stanford says, “is the heart of the issue.”

...It’s easy to come up with arguments for why we need to do so. Above all, we don’t have a choice. Giving hospitals and drug makers a blank check will bankrupt Medicare.

Well there you go...we don't have a choice. The Federal Government must make the life-and-death decisions for you.

But wait a minute! Didn't the left-wingers say that health care is a right?

Now that ObamaCare is law, I guess the Democrats will become known as the party of "no."

No health care for you!

Discussion: Memeorandum

I have been pounding away at this healthcare thing and everyone has been ignoring the real problems. (All Our elected leaders anyway have been ignoring the real problems.) The bill they passed failed to address even one issue that would cut costs and improve healthcare.

Suddenly, the day after it passed, I get dozens of people finally looking for answers. It was like someone threw a switch and suddenly people were on and looking at the issue. The Democrats must have finally released the hypnotized masses and they were looking for answers.

Thanks for pointing out the obvious to the oblivious.
