  • Students: Resist Health Care Takeover!

    Epic FailStudents and young people will be rising up in outright horror at the flagrant usurpation of individual liberty we saw occur last night.  Never before, and by such a narrow margin, have we seen the federal government take over such a massive portion of the U.S. economy or such fundamental rights of the people to determine their own future.  The President was not just throwing around campaign platitudes when he said we were going to “fundamentally transform the United States of America.”  He meant it.  And we just saw it happen.

    This arrogant government power grab has robbed our young people of their future.  Pure and simple.  This bill will not cost them billions.  The price tag will be trillions.  There is no way for our economy to stand the enormous burden of this new entitlement.   There is no way for subsequent generations to pay back the debt it will create.  This sly administration has worked it so that it will not feel the economic tsunami—they have put it off just long enough to leave it to others.  That is not bold leadership.  It’s cowardice.  Today’s college students, and those who come after them, will be the ones to face it.

    The quality of your future healthcare is guaranteed to be diminished, significantly.  There will be less money for innovation and research.  The liberal administration is determined that doctors spend more and make less.  Consequently, there will be fewer doctors and certainly fewer excellent doctors as the best and the brightest look to other professions, unwilling to be pawns and serfs to a tyrannical government.  Individuals will not have options for their healthcare coverage, or for their health care services.  The government will decide what coverage everyone gets, and who gets what care.  Whereas your parents and their parents had access to the best, most innovative medical care in the world, you will be subject at best, to mediocrity.

    Young people, you are witnessing an epic fail. Your government, as it says you can’t handle your own future, has stolen it from you.  It’s up to you to get it back.

    • "The liberal administration is determined that doctors spend more and make less. Consequently, there will be fewer doctors and certainly fewer excellent doctors as the best and the brightest look to other professions, unwilling to be pawns and serfs to a tyrannical government." Question: Aren't doctors supposed to be motivated by saving lives rather than by making a lot of money?

    • Doesn't the Christ learn to us that we have to practise charity. Be real christians, not false one.

    • To those that have posted here thus far, it seems they believe it is OK to take away the choices that individuals should be making for themselves and indeed the RIGHT to make for themselves. If you want to help the poor, do it. There is no law to stop you. Give 2.5% of YOUR personal income for someone elses health care. But do not insist that I am greedy, crazy or selfish because I find it morally and fundamentaly un-American to impose a law that says I MUST purchase a product against my own judgment.
