Dems to Ram Through Health Care Plan

In a last ditch effort to stuff down the throats of every American in this country a bill that will explode the national debt and do more damage to the economy than the Great Depression, House Democrats are planning on ramming through nationalized health care in a 1,000 page bill.

The plan would cost $1.5 Trillion, and with the Dems controlling both houses of Congress, this thing might become a reality.

The AP reports:

House Democratic leaders, pledging to meet the president’s goal of health care legislation before their August break, are offering a $1.5 trillion plan that for the first time would make health care a right and a responsibility for all Americans. Left to pick up most of the tab were medical providers, employers and the wealthy.

“We cannot allow this issue to be delayed. We cannot put it off again,” Rep. Henry Waxman, D-Calif., the chairman of the House Energy and Commerce committee, said Tuesday. “We, quite frankly, cannot go home for a recess unless the House and the Senate both pass bills to reform and restructure our health care system.”

House Republicans recently released a chart to help voters visualize nationalized healthcare (click image for higher resolution):

When does this insanity stop?  Our liberties are being thrown through the garbage disposal — and for what?  So the government can have more power?  Health care “managed” by a completely free and unfettered market would do far more to lower prices than any government-proposed plan to gather ever more power for Washington.

“When the people fear the government, there is tyranny. When the government fears the people, there is liberty.” — Thomas Jefferson
