Town hall face-offs erode health support

As more and more concerned Americans make their first trip to a "town hall" meeting to voice their doubts about Obama's proposed government takeover of health care, support for the risky experiment plunges.  No wonder Democrats were working so hard this week to slander attendees and discourage people from attending meetings they couldn't risk canceling.

Not that the opposition has stopped the bill.  Democrats have clearly stated they will pass some form of a government takeover regardless of what voters think.

Rationing away medical care

Also from today's Washington Times.  The unavoidable reality of rationing basic care is one of many reasons why Libertarians oppose government-run health care and prefer to open up the insurance market.  Click here to read the full editorial, which states:

"The tax imposed under this section shall not be treated as tax imposed by this chapter. ..."

Yes, the proposed government takeover of health care actually contains that language, which The Washington Times editorializes as "Orwellian."

'Stimulus' opponents see growth as France, Germany emerge from recession

Startling economic numbers from France and Germany, critics of the Obama plan to stimulate the economy through massive deficit spending.  Libertarians were early critics of the 'stimlus' package of government expansion as a plan, pointing out it would delay economic recovery.  Libertarians, backed by most Americans, suggest tax and regulatory relief to boost job creation.

Libertarians: Obama promises of postal system-style health care fail to deliver

Sub-Title: 

President seeks to assure voters by promising health care will be run like the mail

WASHINGTON -- America’s third largest party Wednesday took aim at comments made by President Barack Obama in a New Hampshire press event Tuesday, in which he took questions from a pre-selected audience.  Obama compared his proposed government-run health care system to the nation’s postal system, which he admitted is “always having problems.”

Obama promises: My health care system = the postal system

From today's Washington Examiner.  Click here to read the full editorial:

With a few hours' reflection, it's become clear that Barack Obama's reference to the U.S. Postal Service at yesterday's health care town hall was the most revealing, and damaging, thing the president has said in the entire health care debate.
