Socialized Healthcare — “I’m Not Dead Yet!”
We are entering dangerous waters now. It appears as a matter of public relations that the White House and some leading Democrats have backed away from the Government-run healthcare option. But this is exactly the moment that conservatives should not relax or relent. Backroom political dealing, Pelosi-Reid arm-twisting and strident supporters of socialized medicine shouting away at the President could change what appears to be an important victory into a most subtle, yet insidious, defeat.
Now is not the time to relax. Now is the time to push forward with ideas and options that reduce Federal intervention in our healthcare choices. Now is the time to shine a light on the monstrous shadow of unfunded Medicare liabilities. Now is the time to let free market principles, like cross-state competition, reinvigorate our country. The multitudes of tea party demonstrators who marched in Washington last Saturday are just the people to continue the fight until the anathema of socialized healthcare and all its support in the halls of power are truly dead.
