While y’all have almost completely sunk into the warm, smothering embrace of the Nanny State, we still have a few vestiges of freedom and self determination left, such as worrying about our own health care. That is, until John Edwards gets elected, and this evil rich guy isn’t afraid to spend other people’s money buying votes: Edwards: raise taxes for healthcare. It’ll be interesting to see how many votes he can purchase with a promised $180 BILLION of looted cash that will, supposedly, come from higher taxes on his fellow fabulously rich country men and women. The targets of this bribe are the 43 MILLION Americans who are without health insurance. Mr. money bags doesn’t mention if he is going to weed out those who could afford coverage, but decide not to do so. Of course, if we get into details, it seems that our trial lawyer champion of the people is playing tricky games with the meaning of words. “Rich” for example, appears to mean anyone making more than $200,000 per year. His rather expensive plan also calls for an attack on our economy through adding more regulations and costs on business.
Not to be outdone, I have a health care plan of my own. I say we confiscate, ah, that is tax at 100%, Edward’s new super luxury estate, and put that $6,000,000 in a fund to buy health care for poor people. Just the interest on that should cover decent insurance for 50 to 100 people. Be a sport John, use your own money to buy votes.
