Before Obamacare was rammed down our throats, conservatives acquired videos of liberal after liberal affirming that Obamacare – excuse me, Obamatax – was a stepping stone to a single-payer system like the ones implemented in the UK and Canada. This is just the latest example of why government-managed healthcare is bad – the guy was in the hospital for a hip-replacement surgery and he died from dehydration. You might expect the staff to be shocked and ashamed something like that could happen in their hospital. Instead, while the grieving family
held his lifeless body, they were asked by a nurse whether they had “finished” and could she “bag him up now,” the hearing at Westminster Coroner’s Court was told.
But no, we shouldn’t worry about death panels or any problems whatsoever with Obamatax. It’s going to be GREAT. Just you wait and see. Liberals excuse this sort of thing every time it’s brought up. “Oh,” they exclaim, “that’s just one example out of X number of thousand treated, most people receive fantastic care. And it’s free!” Well, it’s free, except for the massive taxes they pay to support the system. If a privately owned clinic did this to a patient, we’d see liberals wailing and gnashing their teeth about how for-profit healthcare killed a patient.
Independence Day is Wednesday (the name of the holiday is NOT “July 4th” or “Fourth of July”) and the thought that’s been going through my head all week is that the country we’re handing down to my 22 year old daughter’s generation is substantially less free and less wealthy than the one I came into as a young voter.
