And yet, more health care.

Moi over at Bite the Apple has written an excellent piece on the health care debate.  I've linked it here.  It's awesome.

It's well worth the read but if you're pressed for time here's the last paragraph:

Anyway. I don't see how you can crack the barn door and not expect the horses to do nothing more than stick the points of their noses through. We either decide we are a country individuals free to make our own way, free to take responsibility for our lives and those of our families and loved ones, free to ask for help and free to give it, OR we decide we are a country of victims who in lieu of striving and creating, demand to have everything handed to us and enslave ourselves and our neighbors in order to do so.

I don’t see any in between. If you do, tell me. I’d love to know what it is.
Well done Moi.  Well done.

I saw a comment from a facebook friend who quoted from one of the pages of the HC bill ... that the government would have access to all bank accounts so it could draft the fee ..... WHA????? UHHHHHH......

I saw that in HB3200 with my own two eyes. Its funny how no one is bringing that up.

The US Govt already had access to our bank accounts. Trust me.

I have to file my taxes online and they reach right in every week.

And it freaks me out.

I'm honored you linked me, thanks. Huckabee spoke on Fox News yesterday very eloquently about the illegality of forcing Americans to purchase health insurance as as stipulation of citizenship. He very astutely made the point that we are free citizens of this state and the government exists at our behest, not the other way around.
