The proliferation of primary election candidates vowing to repeal the new healthcare reform law makes one's heart soar like an eagle.
Who says it's hyperbolic?
Midterm campaigns are bringing out the healthcare crazy talk
A pantheon of patriots has arisen in the heart of America to remove the jackboot of ObamaCare from the throat of the country.
Some effete critics brand this movement as demagoguery; others even call the rhetoric a trifle over-the-top. But their braying is elitist rubbish.
It takes a special kind of courage to stand up for liberty in the midst of the most severe economic downturn since the Great Depression, when millions are losing their jobs and their health coverage. You have to warn people that the “health security” offered by ObamaCare is heroin. First, you'll get addicted to the socialist promises, and then your life will spiral downward to its demise.
You can witness the wages of “health security” in the single-payer, Canadian-style Medicare program. Take a drive through Florida or Arizona and look at the Medicare death camps, euphemistically marketed as “retirement communities.” The lives of our parents and grandparents are being cut short at age 80, 90 or 100 by the deadly lure of universal care. You can find them with their vacant looks and hollow eyes wandering the golf courses, sailing their boats aimlessly, and crying during yoga class. If ObamaCare is allowed to stand, you can be sure that no one in this once vigorous nation will live to be more than 120.
Providers and insurers were told that they'll get millions of new customers from reform, but they'll have to subsist on a thin gruel of reimbursement. And don't believe that study saying ObamaCare will have little effect on health spending through the next decade (Sept. 13, p. 8) or the allegedly beneficial results in Massachusetts, where providers are organizing refugee flotillas to escape the financial carnage.
There are some ObamaCare propagandists who will argue that the legislation passed by Congress was actually a conservative bill, the kind of solution touted years ago by people who used to hang around places like the Heritage Foundation. Well, that was then. We now know those so-called conservatives were radicals, members of socialist sleeper cells.
The new politicians and candidates are trying to save us from ourselves and the silver-tongued devils pushing ObamaCare. The average Joe may think that having health coverage for himself and his family is a good thing, but the wise candidates preach that it is an express lane on the road to serfdom. Pretty soon, Joe finds himself in socialist shackles, toiling in the healthcare gulag.
On that glorious day next year when this new order of solons takes office, you can be sure that the first thing they will do as part of the repeal effort is to end their own public-sponsored health coverage. They know that taxpayers shouldn't spend a dime of hard-earned money on socialist schemes to subsidize government officials. They know that God did not intend man to do anything but struggle for his own healthcare in a dog-eat-dog world. That's why you won't find a single mention of health insurance in the Bible.
You can also be certain that lawmakers will abolish the clinic in the Capitol, where they can get immediate medical attention whenever they stub their toes running into lobbyists.
Yes, there will be hard decisions for these politicians to make and for ordinary Americans to endure. But we all must realize that misery is the price of freedom.
