If it passes

If Obamacare passes: What the Dems are saying about reconciliation and Andy McCarthy’s must-read on what’s really going on. A bit of that:

You have a party with the numbers to do anything it puts its mind to, led by movement Leftitsts who see their window of opportunity is closing. We seem to expect them to moderate because that’s what everybody in their position does. But they won’t. They will put their heads down and go for as much transformation as they can get, figuring that once they get it, it will never be rolled back.

Other stuff at P&P:

Coming to a grimy clinic near you: So some of us will die in our own excrement. No one said fairness and compassion were free. Oh, wait a sec. Yes, they did say exactly that. But in truth government-run “healthcare” is the worst of both worlds — fiscally unsustainable and deplorably poor in quality.

Children last: Mark Steyn writes:

When state-of-the-art totalitarianism meets primitive village culture, the result is industrial-scale depravity.

Our next post will have to be something very upbeat.
