On the surface it sounds good. I mean, surely as compassionate people we want to take care of everyone. I can understand how many people are soothed by his words, who would feel good about the concept of our government taking care of every child.
It doesn’t take more than the scrape of a fingernail, however, to uncover Sen. Obama’s dangerous inconsistencies.
IF Sen. Obama truly cared about REQUIRING health care for all children, he might want to begin by protecting aborted infants who are actually born alive. Instead of providing care he has consistently voted to withhold care for children who have already been subjected to the ultimate form of child abuse and would in fact deprive them of life.
And what about that fine which would be levied against parents who do not register their child for health care? How much did he say it would be? What about parents who choose not to immunize their child based upon research or religious exemption? What about parents who choose to use naturopathic alternatives to treat their children, or how about those “rascally, independent, homeschooling types” who don’t wish to register their children with the federal government in order to receive socialized health care? What happens then? A fine? Jail time? Children taken away from the home?
A simple line, so smoothly delivered in a boring debate, should cause all liberty-loving Americans to jump up in revolt and declare, “Not with MY children!”
I fear many of us were so worried about our stocks that we missed it.
No-bama Care. No thank you.
