Lefties have worked for decades to have universal health care imposed on America. Now, with the passage of Obamacare, their dream has come true. However, the implementation of this law will not take full effect until 2014. One would think that lefties would have thought through this idea before imposing it on society.
In order to provide universal care, it will have to be rationed. In America, products and services have typically been rationed by price. In a market system, price is the mechanism which allocates scare resources. This is how the market works. Now, health care will be rationed by the denial of services. This will effect the elderly and the sick most severely.
The silver lining is that this law will be imposed on lefties as well as everyone else. Perhaps this is America’s revenge on the 60′s burned-out hippies who are now in their late 60s and 70s. So the people who have pushed this idea and are now set to implement it on society, are the ones who will be subject to its ‘death panels’ as they continue to age and they experience diminished health. Even if they think they will be exempt from the system because they are either members of Congress or simply good little leftists, it is my belief the new system will create such a shortage of doctors that even lefties will be denied care no matter who they are.
This is why you are beginning to hear some calls from previous supporters of the law come out and say this is a bad deal (example: a gentleman who helped craft the bill is now coming out against it. Rush Limbaugh read a story on this on his program of 2/13/12).
Think of any prominent leftist who has supported this law. And, imagine how they would react if they were denied care by the very system they created. Since many of them are advancing in age, their very usefulness to society will now come into question and services such as hip replacements, long-term care, etc. will be determined too expensive to be administered for them. The same rationing they will be imposing on the rest of society.
This is an example of lefies not thinking past their noses.
