Don't Believe It

Posted by BigDog

"ObamaCare" has apparently suffered two setbacks. First was the - promised - removal of the 'end of life provisions from the Senate version, the so-called Death Panels. The White House is now 'signaling' that that the "Public Option" - the imposition of government run insurance that lays the foundation of 'single payer' - is 'not essential'.

Don't believe it.

These are tactical withdrawals. There are bills in both the House and Senate, removing a provision from one doesn't mean removing it from the other. In addition, they can always put it back in quietly or just call it something else.

The people pressing these proposals which amount to government control of our medical system are radical ideologues who are the latest in a long line of leftists who have been pressing for government control of medical care for more than a century. Obama is fundamentally dishonest, and he and his people are schooled in the arts of deception and misdirection.
