Healthcare Headline Ho-down

It’s About Government, Not Health Care
"the governmentalization of health care is the fastest way to a permanent left-of-center political culture"

He's right:
Pelosi: ObamaCare is the beginning of taking America “in a new direction”

Democrats launch ObamaCare bait-and-switch scam
"It revolves around incessantly mentioning only the least unpopular aspects of the legislation."

Mass treasurer slams ObamaCare
A Dem says the "model" for ObamaCare is failing.

The Failure of RomneyCare
"Fifty-six percent of Massachusetts internal medicine physicians no longer are accepting new patients... [For those] who do get an appointment ... the average waiting time is 44 days... [leading to] an increasing number of patients who rely on emergency rooms for basic medical services."

FACT CHECK: Premiums would rise under Obama plan
... meaning costs will too

Walgreens: no new Medicaid patients
When gov't cuts payments, providers can't afford to provide. Hello waiting lists.

Would the Line-Item Veto Ruling Invalidate the Slaughter Rule?
We can only hope.

It's about time for the country to head in a different direction. The conservative ascendancy that began under Ronald Reagan has seen the destruction of America's manufacturing base, the transformation of America from the world's biggest creditor to its biggest debtor, stagnant median incomes, repeated system threatening financial crises, and concentration of wealth and power in fewer and fewer hands.

Let's pretend for the moment that the Democrats haven't had a big hand in all you describe.

Is the solution a sharp leftward lurch like Europe with high taxes, high unemployment, low productivity, and an entitlement mentality second to none? That's really not what I want for my children.
