The townhall meetings are a clear indictment of the controllers of our government. They keep claiming that these are fake demos, unlike their own familiar MoveOn.org stuff, yet the videos on the news are pretty convincing to most viewers.
The Messiah claims it is simply disinformation from people to whom he has not been perfectly clear. Yet, the words on paper are considerably different than the words pouring out of His mouth as McQ points out:
Why It Isn't Selling
Now, consider how another famous government program works. Take a look at the US Postal Service. The costs keep going up, the service keeps going down and the free market keeps opting out. That's what they can't allow with the healthcare remake.
Once upon a time the USPS was the only game in town. I remember as a boy the long lines at Christmas as folks waited in line to mail packages. They could only be wrapped in plain brown paper and tied with twine. White paper couldn't suffice and tape was verboten. You couldn't simply take a cardboard box and seal it with some tape then scribble an address on it. You also had to buy "insurance" or they would lose it enroute or crush it to a pulp.
A company with some brown trucks changed all of that. Now you don't wait in line, you don't worry about insurance, you grab some tape and any box, and you can follow the progress of your package across the country online. Success in free enterprise.
Another company saw a market for overnight document delivery. They charged a bit more than a stamp, but you could drop it off before 6 PM and get it hand delivered anywhere in the nation by 10 AM the next day. Pretty cool concept and they pulled it off.
Both UPS and Fedex are great success stories and the Postal Service is a disaster.
That is precisely why the legislation on healthcare reform simply must outlaw any free enterprise solution or market choices. It seems perfectly clear to me.
