The spin continues . . .

About the fascist health care plan currently proposed by our Glorious Leader and the Democrats.

Yahoo News, in a story highlighting the spin, says "the majority of Americans believe the myths." That would be because the "myths" that logic and common sense tell us are true.

So, what "myths" do Americans believe?

-Health care coverage will be provided for illegal immigrants. Crazy, right? Especially since all those paragraphs about how illegal immigrants won't be covered . . . oh, you mean there isn't language about that? And our government keeps trying to prevent immigration laws from being enforced? 1+1 = 2, kids.

-Wait times will increase for medical care. Crazy, right? I mean, it's not like wait times increased in Canada, the UK, or France . . . oh, wait, they did? But just because it happens in every other country with government controlled health care doesn't mean it will happen here . . . . 2+2 = 4, kids.

-The Federal Government will become involved in making personal health care decisions. Crazy, right? I mean, it's not like our president said "If there's a blue pill and a red pill, and the blue pill is half the price of the red pill and works just as well, why not pay half price for the thing that's going to make you well?" and "you just get into some very difficult moral issues” when considering whether “to give my grandmother, or everybody else’s aging grandparents or parents, a hip replacement when they’re terminally ill." And those effectiveness panels that will determine if certain medical procedures will be allowed or not? Those couldn't possibly interfere with personal health care decisions, could they? 4+4 = 8, kids.

-Insurance premiums will increase. Crazy, right? Just because the government will force insurance companies to cover all sorts of things that they may not cover now, and because insurance won't be able to be denied to anyone for preexisting conditions, there's no way our premiums would increase, could they? 8+8 = 16, kids.

Keep it up. They know the plan is flawed, and only through dedicated effort did the people of this country stand up to be bullies in Washington. We kept them from cramming fascist health care down our throats. We can win, and then we can vote these bastards out of office.

I read an article a few days ago liking Obamacare to FDR's push for Social Security. Yeah, well that gaping hole is about to run out of cash now despite my monthly input. I'd like the ability to put that cash in a mason jar under my bed. Let's reform some other broken programs like Medicare, Social Security and Welfare before we make some more swiss cheese, ok?
