David Harsanyi boils President Obama’s demands for socialized medicine down to their essentials: “No bickering. No thinking. Just do it”:
You may wonder how President Obama can logically sell a public option while at the same time claim that reform will be paid for by waste found in another “public” option. You may also be wondering how mandates, price controls, regulations and added costs will save us any money and preserve level of care. Don’t. Just bask in the radiance of barren rhetoric.
Because when the president tells us that this is “the season for action” and we can no longer waste time debating, he means that legislation won’t be initiated until 2013, that this is all about politics and his very own entrenched ideology — not yours.
Even if you have to break a few eggs in the process.
