PAGING HEALTH CZAR STARNES

(Via Bookworm Room)  Zombie has a good post up about why universal health care is bad for us...morally and socially.  His gist: "it turns each of us into a little fascist. A nagging nanny who tells other people what to do and how to live."

The fictionalized version of his post is the tale of the Twentieth Century Motor Company, of course.

And someday, someone in our new American health care system is gonna smash in Millie Bush's teeth too...

Unlike the scenario in "Atlas," the anger under ObamaCare would likely be directed at *groups* rather than individuals. Instead of rage at Millie Bush, there would be rage at categories of people perceived to be raising the H/C expenses for all of us. Probable targets include...

--the obsese

--gays

--people who pursue sports with a high injury rate (skiing, for example)

--parents of children who let them be born despite  predicted health problems

--and, of course, the elderly

2 A very small point -- I don't believe Zombie has ever confirmed whether the author is male or female.  Or were you using it in the generic pronoun sense?

3 Lissa -- Good point.  I have always just assumed Zombie to be a he, not based on any evidence...

5 I'd forgotten the details of that part of Atlas Shrugged... when I first read the post, and saw the part about bashing Millie Bush's teeth in... I thought of Pres. George H.W. Bush's dog Millie, and wondered why anyone would want to attack her.

6 I agree with david foster about classes of Millie Bushes. Class warfare. How Leftist. A policy that makes us all dependents and dictators at the same time. As Newsweek declared, ""We are all socialists now."
