Beware of Obamacare
Perhaps it's because I spent the latter half of last week with an ill relative at St. Bernard's Medical Center in Jonesboro, Arkansas. Maybe it's because the news headlines are squawking about it due to President Obama's renewed push for government health care. Whatever the cause, health care has been on my mind.
So what do I see this morning, thanks to the BBC? Check out this little article about some of the pitfalls of socialized medicine.
President Obama insists he's not taking over the health care industry, just like he insisted he's not taking over the auto industry -- even while the government became the largest shareholder in General Motors. He insists those who raise concerns are just scaremongering, playing on people's fears.
Yeah, right. You have to give Obama some credit. He's never one to be bothered with troublesome little things like facts.
