Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.



I'm always disappointed when my government makes bad decisions. It is even worse when it is going to impact every single aspect of our lives. Mark my words, the country won't topple in a day, but unfortunately, this measure WILL force many large (and small) companies to start laying off people because they can't afford (or choose not to) pay for their healthcare. This is sooo going to backfire on the original goals. I'll happily eat my words if it turns out otherwise, but I don't think I'm wrong.

Neither does the Wall Street Journal think I'm incorrect. I'm just so frustrated. It is clear that people chose to stick their fingers in their ears or cover their eyes than to read the writing on the wall. Yes, it is a lovely idea to guarantee health care to the population. I'm all for that. As a matter of fact, I think we have a pretty decent system in place. I haven't encountered anyone who didn't get treatment for dire needs because of their inability to pay. Isn't that was John Peter Smith and the Parkland hospital systems provide? I don't think I've ever encountered a gunshot victim rolled back out into the parking lot because he wasn't insured. Same for someone with H1N1 or whatever you want to pull out.

I'm sure there are horror stories people can pull out. Unfortunately, we can always find them - just like the many we see in Canada and the UK from people who were victims of socialized medicine and died waiting for treatment.

Well, America, you asked for change and now you've gotten it. Gee thanks for dragging me and mine along with you. I guess we should look at it this way, if you like the post office or DMV, you'll love our new ObamaCare.
