Health Care Bill and Bankruptcy

Don't fall all over yourself worrying about if Harry Reid should be stomped, quartered, hanged, and then killed for his racial remarks during the 2008 election cycle. Of course he should, end of story. He won't win re-election in Nevada and will most likely resign in order to shield his son, in a race of his own for the governor of Nevada, further disgrace. Don't take your eye off of the ball when it comes to this ugly health care bill still in flux.

There was an excellent article at the Heritage Foundation today about the real cost of nationalized health care with regards to state budgets. Right now, and I know first-hand, that state budgets are cutting every expense they can and still come up short. The only way some of them are surviving are an influx of federal funds. But what happens when those federal funds run dry or are not renewed next year? Even more cuts and fewer services.

Amendment X - The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.

Health care is not a right nor should it be enforced through legislative action on each state.

If this health care plan goes through it will make states more and more dependent upon the federal government for existence, which is exactly the plan of those in control. Then when a state, aka Texas, makes noise about independence or disagrees with federal policies (No Child Left Behind, Patriot Act, TSA Airport Screenings) then they will be threatened with a cut of federal funding for their programs.

Let's not take our eye off of the ball to turn up our noses at Harry Reid or despair that Sarah Palin has been given a national platform on Fox News. Watch what health care does because if it is successful we are in for a whole heap of trouble.
