There Will Be Blood
On March 15, Robert Reich wrote in The Huffington Post, "Health care reform is necessary, and House Democrats should vote for it because it's best for the nation." He then went on to justify his assertion purely in terms of positive outcomes for Democrats, not for the people who will be required to live with the actual "reform".
Of course as we all know by now, the true intent of this bill is not to improve the quality of care or to make the current level of care cheaper. It is in fact a purposeful effort by Democrats to do the exact opposite in order to ultimately gain control over the citizenry.
This is what the truth is...If you are very old, we're not going to give you all of that technology and all of those drugs...to keep you alive. It's too expensive, so we're going to let you die...(We're) going to use the bargaining leverage of the federal government...to force drug companies and insurance companies and medical suppliers to reduce their costs. That means less innovation, and that means less new products and less new drugs on the market, which means you are probably not going to live that much longer than your parents.
