Health Care Bait

That’s what the current house bill is. But we all knew it. Well, at least some of us did.

“The U.S. government is making a costly and open-ended commitment,” he writes. “Let’s not pretend that it isn’t a big deal, or that it will be self-financing, or that it will work out exactly as planned. It won’t. What is really unfolding, I suspect, is the scenario that many conservatives feared. The Obama Administration . . . is creating a new entitlement program, which, once established, will be virtually impossible to rescind.”

That is the WSJ on John Cassidy. I’ll ask the same thing of this health bill as I do of proposed climate change rules. How much do proponents really want these things? If they are so important to you, and vital to the “national interest” what other progams are you willing to drop? If you cannot answer, then I would like to see how you treat your children when you wander into a giant toy store. Do you just tell them they can have any and all toys they wish for? I suspect not. And why, then, if you treat your children that way, can you not understand that the same idea applies to the big kids too?

Oh, I know what’s different. Your kid is not the bully. But the big kids making health care “reforms” are. Sucks for the wimpy nerds among us.
