It’s a mystery
Dustbury looks at the art of women sitting and is amazed. When I was beginning life as Jenn I was also. It took me a while to master the art of that pose and it still is not comfortable but I have learned some optical illusions that help to deal with it.
Pundit and Pundette look at the FDA’s Avastin decision.
The rising anti-health care fashion is fueled by the realization of those in the know with access to the levers of power that they can buy far more votes spending all that money elsewhere than on health care for the sickest and most vulnerable. Those suffering from cancer and heart disease are too weak and sick to be relentless, effective political advocates. They may well be dead before they can even vote in the next election. Far more votes can be bought spending that money on younger, healthy voters who will be around a long time to work on, contribute to, and support campaigns and the progressives’ Ruling Class political machine. Maybe spend it on more welfare for young families, or on more corporate subsidies for the endless “Green Energy” funding drain.
I call it the political logic of socialized medicine. This is why we see rationing in every other country where the government and politics have taken over the health care system.
It’s not like we weren’t warned – unfortunately while the death panel label attracted attention it also made it much easier to ignore criticism of the health care plan as ignorant overblown hysteria, and so here we sit.
On a related note – The right to care becomes the right to no care
