When they promise more taxes, most politicians love to keep their word. Health care allows them to get away with this unscathed… Indeed citizens ultimately find out that they have payed more (surtaxes & premiums) when healthy, to get less (care and compassion) when sick. By then it’s too late for them to protest!
Obama and others explain how American health care will be moved towards public system... but say little about its corollary: a single decider system. And the decider won't be you!
Health care taxes not only mean more pork, they also mean veterinarian care for humans... When we're old and ailing, officials will decide whether we get treatment or a mercy shot!
