The Either/Or Healthcare Fallacy
Either the government must provide healthcare coverage for everyone or millions of people will die. This is called the either/or, fallacy dilemma, or bifurcation fallacy. Description: When only two choices are presented yet more exist, or a spectrum of possible choices exists between two extremes. False dilemmas are usually characterized by
I Found the Perfect Person to Put in Charge of Healthcare
The government should not be involved in any aspect of health insurance. We’re not in a healthcare debate. We’re in a debate on how people should pay for their own healthcare decisions. The government is not interested in healthcare otherwise it would make killing unborn babies a crime and stop funding
Why Are We Letting the Government Control Our Healthcare?
Think about this for a moment. We are debating how the government should control our healthcare choices by taking away our choices and our money. In essence, we are debating how the government should control our lives. It’s maddening that we are sitting back and letting it happen. We are a
Hypocritical Liberals Should Do This One Thing With Their Moeny to Help People With Healthcare
Most liberals are generous with other people’s money. I can be very magnanimous if I were a congressman and voted to use money taken from people who earned it and gave it to people who did not. For example, “of the 148,606,578-individual income tax return filers that year, 52,062,499 (or
First Step in Fixing Healthcare: Get the Government Out!
There was a time that doctors were paid in cash or some form of barter exchange. “In 1900, the average American spent $5 a year on health care ($100 in today’s money). No one had health insurance, because you don’t need insurance for something that costs $5 a year.” (NPR)
Why Subsidies are Theft
We hear that “taxation is theft,” and much of it is, but it’s also true that a subsidy is theft. The Affordable Care Act is attractive to people because it offers “subsidies” to millions of people who cannot afford healthcare. What is a subsidy? It’s someone else’s money. By the
Evidence that Facts Don’t Matter to Liberals
Have you noticed how the debate over ObamaCare has shifted? First, it was the lie that Obama told about keeping our insurance policies and doctors. This lie was told to get ObamaCare passed. It was admitted to be a lie by the media – at first. Then liberals figured out
Why Should We Trust Obama With Our Health When We Can’t Trust Him With Our Jobs?
A very wise businessman friend of mine explained how he went about deciding whether he would hire someone for his business. “Ask the prospective client for three references. You know that you’re going to show you only the good ones. When he shows you the references, then ask for the
Republican Sen. Mitch McConnell Needs to Lead Not Concede on Repeal of Obamacare
I don’t like whiners. I don’t like to hear someone say in a whiney voice, “I can’t do it” or “It’s too hard.” This is what I hear from Sen. Mitch McConnell as he explains why it’s going to be difficult to overturn ObamaCare. While McConnell says he’ll do whatever
$500 Million Secretly Diverted to IRS is Not about HealthCare — It’s About Control
There are no such restrictions on our government. Billions of dollars are at its disposal, and disposal is the right word. If the federal General Services Administration wants to take a trip to Las Vegas and spend nearly a million dollars, they can do it. It’s not their money. Now
Cost of Obamacare Skyrockets from Billions to Trillions
The cost of government programs is always underestimated. This is on purpose. If the president and congress actually reported what a program will really cost, the legislation would never pass. There isn’t a single government program where the cost projections have been accurate. Social Security and Medicare are two perfect
Liberal Politics of Death and Destruction
“The U.S. Senate rejected a GOP amendment on Thursday that would have overridden President Obama’s mandate that most employers, including religious nonprofits, and all insurers provide free contraception, sterilization and abortion-inducing drugs for women. The measure failed by a 51-48 vote.” The Republicans are bad, but not as bad as
Why Healthcare is Expensive and Controlled by Government
When someone else pays for something we get to keep, we usually don’t care about the price, especially if our benefactor keeps paying for it. People on food stamps generally are not cost conscious because they know that each month, they’ll get a new batch of food stamps. There was
Did Justice Kagan Commit Perjury?
A stunning 2010 e-mail exchange between Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan and Harvard Law Professor Lawrence Tribe has come to light. Prior to her confirmation hearings before the Senate Judiciary Committee in June 2010 for her nomination to the Supreme Court, Kagan let Mr. Tribe know that she was delighted
Selling Obama Care is Like Selling Hot Dogs
President Obama is trying desperately to sell his healthcare program to the nation. He tried the white coat treatment in 2009 by staging a photo op at the White House Rose Garden with 150 doctors in tow from the 50 states. How would the people know that these men and
