Putting Lipstick on a Pig

Putting Lipstick on a Pig
Nancy Pelosi has announced that henceforth and hereafter, the “Public Option” for health care will be called the “Consumer Option.”  Wow!  I feel so much better about the government taking over my health care.  

Really, folks, this is, as Sarah Palin might say, like putting lipstick on a pig.  You can put as much makeup and lipstick on a pig as you want, but it will still be a pig.

And make no mistake about it, the goal for this pig is to get to a one payer system like Canada and England.  We know that’s the goal because Obama has been recorded on video as saying that is his goal.

And a one payer, socialized medicine program means lousy, bureaucratic and poor health care.  It’s still a pig.

In England, Canada and every other nation that has socialized medicine, people who need help suffer from ---
  1. Waiting months for care.
  2. A shortage of doctors.
  3. A shortage of nurses.
  4. Emergency room back-ups.
  5. Government bureaucrats deciding who gets treated and who doesn’t.  If you are 50 or older, expect the worst.
  6. Out of control expenditures for second rate health care.
  7. No new treatments or medications.
  8. Government selection of your doctor.
By any name you choose, Public Option, Consumer Option, One Payer or Socialized Medicine, government run health care is a pig.  And don’t forget that our “public servants” who see themselves as our “public rulers” have opted themselves out of any government operated health care system.  

Time to read Orwell’s Animal Farm again.  It’s turning into reality before our eyes.
