[regarding last night’s infomercial for ‘Obama Care’]
Dr. Orrin Devinsky led off by asking the President if he would sacrifice the health of his own family by putting them in a government plan.
The President said “If it’s my family member, it’s my wife, if it’s my children, if it’s my grandmother, I always want them to get the very best care. But here’s the problem that we have in our current health care system, is that there is a whole bunch of care that’s being provided that every study, every bit of evidence that we have indicates may not be making us healthier.”
I know I am stating the obvious here, but the problem with government officials devising any kind of plans for the rest of us is this: government officials never have to live by or with the things they impose on the rest of us - never.
The Obamas, the Kennedys, etc. who dream up schemes to impose on the rest of us never have to live with those schemes. As we now know, some Obama appointees didn’t bother to pay the very taxes they gleefully hoped the rest of us would pay.
For example, the presidential limousine will never be subject to CAFE mileage standards. (That is just one example of thousands of such things.)
Isn’t it long past time that we peons begin to insist that anything government imposes on us MUST apply equally to every official at every level of government?
It seems that we are in the mess we are in because most of us are weenies. Weenies are easy victims of out-of-control governments.
I find it difficult to believe that we have any ideological connection whatsoever to the people who signed the Declaration of Independence. Our liberty is nearly all gone, weenieishly traded for what we stupidly thought was security. We are of all people truly most pathetic.
