Democrats want control over you. That used to mean control over your material wealth, your labor, through oppressive taxation and regulation.
Now it means they will decide your fate. The fate of your body.
All of you pro-choicers out there: where are you?
I assume you're going to stand up against national health care?
The issue of abortion notwithstanding, what about our bodies? What about this "Federal Health Board"?
This is the mechanism that Tom Daschle and Barack Obama intend to set up, as Daschle's book spells out in excruciating detail.
Such a board would decide what kind of medical treatment will be provided in this nation.
What kind of medical treatment you and I will get.
How can a few, a board of hack central planners, know what kind of medical benefits your children need when they're rationing who gets what?
They can't. You're about to turn these decisions over to a handful of bureaucrats, who will be called "experts."
A board of bureaucrats -- not you -- will decide the healthcare fate of your children. You won't. They will.
Let me ask you: will they make a better decision than you? No, of course not.
As for affordability, they'll take care of that too. There will be less new technology, fewer breakthrough drugs, less hospitals, less doctors and less nurses. It will become much more affordable, because you will be waiting in line. And who will pay the price? You will... through lower-quality healthcare and treatments approved by a central planner, a bureaucrat.
How do we know this? Because we have examples in the UK and Canada, where waits for MRI scans can be six months long and many children never see a dentist.
Welcome to Socialism! Welcome to Barack Obama's America!
