Well, he's right, for once.

Dear Leader says we're on the precipice of health care reform. For perhaps the first time in his presidency, he's right:

  • If they don't pass it, their own loony lefty communist cunning linguists will boot them out of office.
  • If they do pass it, the vast majority of the rest of us will boot them out of office.
There is a super-majority in this country that is sane enough not to want socialized medicine, because of stories from our neighbors to the north who come down here for emergency heart bypass surgery. There is a super-majority of health care givers who oppose socialized medicine because of horror stories told by other health care workers in nationalized systems in nations like Britain.

There are reasons why we, as a nation, spend more on health care than any other nation in the world. Do we really want to be forced by the government to spend less on our health care at the cost of losing providers and quality of care?
