Why Hillary CAN'T be trusted with health care...

The title of this post is a link to a video. Watch it first.

Okay, so let's get the facts straight here - the facts as presented by Hillary's own ad.

1. A man could not afford an operation for his son.
2. He called Hillary's office.
3. Hillary's office calls him the next day and tells him that the hospital will eat the cost of the operation.

So...we are to conclude that because Hillary acted like the mafia that we can trust her? Health care is a service, and like any other good or service, it must be paid for. Hospitals are businesses that exist to make money. So when we don't like or can't afford the costs, we're supposed to rely on the government to use thug tactics and strongarm the private industry into taking a loss?

So how do you think the conversation between Hillary's office and the hospital went?

"Hi, this is Senator Clinton's office. I'd like to call your attention to the matter of this marrow transplant."
"Yes?"
"It would be in your best interests to pick up the tab."
"Well, we really can't do that. We have a policy that unless..."
"No, I don't think you understand. Let's say that it would be like health insurance for you if you went ahead and absorbed the cost."

I can't imagine the pain of not being able to pay for a life-saving operation for your child. I really can't, and I'm sorry this guy had to go through that. But using the government to bully the private industry is not the answer.

The unfortunate truth is that our socialist program-bred entitlement attitudes have led us to buy into the lie that health care is somehow not a good or service for which someone deserves compensation. Hillary & Co. apparently believe that doctors, surgeons, nurses, pharamacists and everyone else in the industry will have their financial needs met through the warm fuzzy feelings they get when they work for free.

This commercial - straight from the horse's mouth mind you - exposes Hillary for what she is - a thug who will use the power of the government to control people as she sees fit. In this case, "as she sees fit" happened to benefit this man and his son. But what did it cost the hospital? Oh, hell, what does it matter? They're a corporation and they deserve to be punished, right?

*UPDATED*
I attempted to post a very brief synopsis of this post on YouTube. I got an instant, "Comment Pending Approval" message, and then when I refreshed it disappeared. I'm sure it won't make it on. She probably "suggested" that YouTube review all comments posted in response. Does anyone really believe this mafiosa promotes a free exchange of ideas?

Adam, I think you missed one of the main parts of the ad (although since I have dial-up I couldn't see it, I have seen it on tv enough). You missed the part where moron #1 says something along the lines of "we put our faith in moron #2 to save our child. And we received a call the next day saying the hospital was taking care of the cost." I'm surprised you missed that part. Isn't this the segment of society that expects the government to take care of everything? You talk about sheep being led to the slaughter. The less government in my life the better, and me "trusting them" with my life and family? How crazy and stupid do you think I am? Anyway, I was less surprised with the thug tactics Hilary used (after all, she's known for using those tactics in every area of her life over the past 30+ years) as the idgit trusting Hilary with the life of his child. Anyway, I digress!

Oh yeah, here's another one that just hit me. So in this case trusting Mrs Slick Willie with the kid worked out well for the kid. However, what happens when Mrs President pushes to allow upper elementary school and junior high kids to receive birth control and abortions without parental consent? What happens when a young girl dies of hemmoraging, or any of the host of TONS of other things that are the result of abortion and premarital sex? Do they say, "We trusted Hilary with our children?" NO, GOD HAS PLACED YOU AS THE PARENT OF YOUR CHILD!!! NOT THE GOVERNMENT. NOT AN INSTITUTION. NOT EVEN ANOTHER PERSON. Anyway, just a thought I had about "what next?"

The book, The Godfather, makes it very very clear that everyone who asks the Godfather for a 'small favor' comes to regret it. The price they later pay is more than they ever thought they'd have to.

It'll be the same here with medical care, we'll get 'free medical care' but either our taxes will double or we'll go bankrupt as a nation sooner.

Hey AJW308, doesn't the fact that Hilary being President of the US already prove that we are morally bankrupt? Oh, you were talking fiscally bankrupt? My bad. Carry on, good sir, carry on!
