This video about the joys of health care rationing is brought to you by our friends at the Sam Adams Alliance:

As I’ve been saying, The “public plan” option is a lie:
Obamacare will outlaw individual private coverage.
Congress: It didn’t take long to run into an “uh-oh” moment when reading the House’s “health care for all Americans” bill. Right there on Page 16 is a provision making individual private medical insurance illegal.
When we first saw the paragraph Tuesday, just after the 1,018-page document was released, we thought we surely must be misreading it. So we sought help from the House Ways and Means Committee.
It turns out we were right: The provision would indeed outlaw individual private coverage. Under the Orwellian header of “Protecting The Choice To Keep Current Coverage,” the “Limitation On New Enrollment” section of the bill clearly states:
“Except as provided in this paragraph, the individual health insurance issuer offering such coverage does not enroll any individual in such coverage if the first effective date of coverage is on or after the first day” of the year the legislation becomes law.
So we can all keep our coverage, just as promised — with, of course, exceptions: Those who currently have private individual coverage won’t be able to change it. Nor will those who leave a company to work for themselves be free to buy individual plans from private carriers.

A Boston Globe headline today reads Boston Medical sues state for funds. Replace “Boston Medical” with “Local Hospital X” and “state” with “federal government” and you’ll have tomorrow’s headline that will dominate newspapers across the country should Obamacare became law.

CBO Chief Criticizes Democrats’ Health Reform Measures
Here goes the non partisan Congressional Budget Office with their “scare tactics”, again:
Instead of saving the federal government from fiscal catastrophe, the health reform measures being drafted by congressional Democrats would worsen an already bleak budget outlook, increasing deficit projections and driving the nation more deeply into debt, the director of the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office said this morning.
That’s never stopped the Dems, before.
Gateway Pundit says: Do not believe the bluedog and pony show. I tend to agree. The conservative, moderate whatever blue dogs have been voting with the majority every time.

The Vaccination Police: Would Americans Give Up Their Liberty for More Health Care?
We understand that Americans still value liberty. Would they sacrifice it in favor of the value of health care? Would they approve vaccine “interventions” in their neighbor’s lives out of respect for High Science? I don’t know, but here’s what the official summary of the draft bill says:
“Authorizes a demonstration program to improve immunization coverage. Under this program, CDC will provide grants to states to improve immunization coverage of children, adolescents, and adults through the use of evidence-based interventions. States may use funds to implement interventions that are recommended by the Community Preventive Services Task Force, such as reminders or recalls for patients or providers, or home visits.”
