Tuesday with Thomas: “The Truth About ObamaCare” by Sally Pipes

Be afraid. Be VERY afraid.

Dr. Sowell is talking, and you really ought to listen. He’s not JUST smart – brilliant, in fact – he’s also got a large measure of common sense, and that is FAR more valuable in the Real World.

Here’s today’s bit to tempt you into clicking over and reading the column at JewishWorldReview.com:

British newspapers have for years carried stories about the neglect of patients under the National Health Service, of which this is just one. When nurses don’t get around to taking a pregnant woman to the maternity ward in time, the baby doesn’t wait.

But the American media don’t tell you about such things when they are gushing over the wonders of “universal health care” that will “bring down the cost of medical care.”

Instead, the media spin is that various countries with government-run medical systems have life expectancies that are as long as ours, or longer. That is very clever as media spin, if you don’t bother to stop and think about it.

Author Sally Pipes did bother to stop and think about it in her book, “The Truth About ObamaCare.” She points out that medical care is just one of the factors in life expectancy.

  1. It’s funny…well, not really…that I was listening to Rush’s fill in the other day in the car…he spoke of how he gets phone calls where people are asking for this “free healthcare” they heard of now that Obama is in office. NEWS FLASH everyone! There is NO FREE HEALTHCARE with this bill. All it does require the insurance companies to raise their prices to be in compliance with Obamacare, which in turn causes the employers and the employees to pay more to the insurance companies. If employers have to write bigger checks to the insurance companies, they will have less money to pay employees, therfore causing more layoffs and less pay raises. Those of us that still have jobs (and DO have insurance) end up paying more for our co pays and our deductibles, causing us to have less take home money to invest, save, or put into the economy. And don’t forget about those EVIL people who DO NOT have insurance, because the IRS will be mandating that they have health insurance (it must be APPROVED by them, of course), or they will pay close to a $700 (or something like that)penalty when they file their taxes. Now that is a GREAT way to recover the economy! Silly taxpayers…
