See? I can string together even MORE adjectives!
In this clip, catchily entitled “ABC’s John Stossel Destroys/Pulverizes/Crushes Obama’s anti-American ‘Health Care’ Plan,” Stossel actually doesn’t talk at all about the health care reform that’s currently being gutted by ball-deficient Blue Dogs. Instead, he opts to throw together the same bunch of anecdotal propaganda about Canada’s healthcare system that you’ve all seen debunked a hundred times.
The piece hits the idiotic ground running with a healthcare “expert” who wisely points out that the only way to control healthcare costs is to reduce the amount of money spent on health care. Genius. It goes downhill from there.
Without even fact-checking the bullshit claims here, their central premise is bogus. Stossel & company are saying that there just aren’t enough doctors to treat everyone. So, 47 million uninsured, I guess you can all drop dead no matter what kind of system we adopt. Unless we continue to lavish insurance companies with record profits, we’re all gonna die.
Plus, the idea that a public healthcare plan will kill innovation doesn’t make any sense. You know what other technology America rules at? Weapons. Yeah, must be that free-market Army we have.
I imagine that, like most opponents of health care reform, Stossel probably has great insurance, making it easier to narrate talking points as if he were speaking to 3 year-olds. I wonder how he would feel if he couldn’t afford to go see a doctor after something like this.
