Is This the Line for Band-Aids, Comrade?

Here's how ObamaCare is streamlining the delivery of health care to America's neediest and most deserving:

Applying for benefits under President Barack Obama's health care overhaul could be as daunting as doing your taxes.

The government's draft application is now on the Internet.

It runs 15 pages for a three-person family. The online version has 21 steps, some with added questions.

At least three major federal agencies, including the IRS, will scrutinize your application.

That's just the first part of the process, which lets you know if you qualify for financial help.

Our low-information voters are about to get quite an education.

Now, one of two things will happen. They'll either form a surge of right-leaning voters, as happened in California in 1978 and then the nation as a whole in 1980. Or they'll become the quietly bitter little form-fillers and benefit-takers and line-standers the Bureaucratic State has been diligently working to turn them into since the New Deal.

My hopes aren't high.
