Surprise, Surprise...Health Care Costs are Headed Up; Quality Headed Down

The Obama Administration is destroying the American health care system brick by brick.  There is no real surprise here.  Once you decide that free market price rationing is inappropriate, you move on to the idea that unelected, unresponsive government bureaucrats should do the rationing.  That's where we are headed.

Meanwhile, health care providers (doctors, remember them?) are exiting from the system.  Hospitals are shuttering their doors.  Even if you have insurance, it won't really matter.  There won't be any real health care available, except, or course, for the rich and powerful.  Obama will be taken care of.  So will Barney Frank, so will Mark Warner, so will Diane Feinstein.  But, too bad if you are their gardener or cook.  You're screwed.

This is the hypocrisy, the arrogance and the mendacity of the big government crowd.  They lie, they distort, and they don't really care, because none of this effects them personally.  No wonder, this is the right way to go, according to Warren Buffett.  He won't have to suffer the indignities of the new health care regime, that the vast majority of Americans will face.  He is rich and powerful and could care less.

So, the website doesn't work.  That's the least of the problems.  Picture the worst public schools in America.  That's the vision of the hospital that the average American will face.  It will be dangerous, incompetent, and costly.  That's the future of health care for the average American.  But, Buffett, Warner and Feinstein are rich.  So, this is all okay with them, since they won't have to deal with it.
