Healthcare Blues

On his radio show today, Dennis Prager says about Obamacare: “This is classic liberal legislation. It feels good. We pass it. We worry about the consequences later.”

“There is a childlike element to all left-wing positions. We will do good because we feel good, not because it actually does good. We mean good. We want to take care of 40 million Americans who don’t have health insurance. To solve a smaller problem, they create larger problems.”

Krugman: Republicans Hate America

Everything we do is based on politics and accumulating power. We know that the Democrats ideas on the economy, Global Warming and security are better, but we oppose them because we’re mean. You didn’t know that about yourself, did you? Don’t miss the 4th para from bottom.

Health Care Industry Reacts to ObamaCare with Merger Mania

ObamaCare is leading to a merger mania among health care providers, raising fears that a lack of competition will lead to higher prices, not lower ones. A new commission has been created to deal with this problem: the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation. Trips right off the tongue, doesn’t it? Think it will do anything to improve health care or reduce costs? Think it will add layers of new bureaucracy to the Federal government?
