Good news: 83% of Obamacare Grants Awarded to Local Health Centers In States That Supported Obama in 2008

Earlier today, the Department of Heath and Human Services announced it was writing $29 million in checks to "expand access to health care". These Obamacare funds would support "community health center programs across the country", though it would appear Blue states did decidedly better than Red States. Of the $29 million HHS awarded, $24 million of it went to 2008's Blue States.

But I'm sure that's just coincidental. I'm certain that Kathleen Sebelius and her fine cadre of bureaucrats would never, ever permit political bias to impact their decision-making processes.

Except it turns out that more than 83% of the funds went to Blue states.

You may recall that it appears that Nancy Pelosi abused the Obamacare waiver system to reward her restaurateur friends in San Francisco.

Obamacare has nothing at all to do with health care. It's about control. Punishing enemies and rewarding friends. It's about a Soviet-style form of government that has as its core the destruction of the Constitution and of our individual liberties. Removing the options you have for medical treatment and replacing them with a one-size-fits-all, centralized health care regime is a huge step in the direction of totalitarianism.

That's the same thing that happens with the NHS in the UK: Health care resources are diverted to politically friendly voters.

That's why O-care is so freaking stupid: the bad example of the NHS in England for the last 60 years is plain for everyone to see. Its tragedies are a matter of record. You'd have to be brain-dead to imitate it.

actually, if you broke them down by county you may find that those counties are bluer than the state they reside in.
