I reckon it was a long time ago; so far back most folks around today weren't even born yet. Well, there was this liberal politician and he had this plan to improve health care in America. The guy had a checkered past, the moniker of "crook" had dogged him for most of his political career. You know how it is, your best friend in life is the mob's banker in Miami and suspicious people begin to think, maybe you're cut from the same cloth.

Well, you know how liberals are. Whenever they see a problem, their first response is to throw money at it. So once this liberal comes to power, he begins spending money like there's no tomorrow. The Comprehensive Health Manpower Training Act, the Nurse Training Act and then he more than doubles the budget for cancer research! He signs into law a National Health Service Corps of young professionals, AKA another big government program. The purpose was to provide health services in rural areas and inner cities; don't it just make your heart bleed?

But he wasn't finished, oh no, far from it. He was just getting warmed up, so he says: "MORE THAN MONEY IS NEEDED." Brother, when a liberal politician tells you more than money is needed, he means, we need more money. See he's got this plan; he wants to reform health care in America. He wants to make it better " understand?

One basic shortcoming of a solution to health care problems which depends entirely on spending more money, can be seen in the Medicare and Medicaid programs. Medicare and Medicaid did deliver needed dollars to the health care problems of the elderly and the poor. But at the same time, little was done to alter the existing supply and distribution of doctors, nurses, hospitals and other health resources. Our health care supply, in short, remained largely the same while massive new demands were loaded onto it." ~ Big Liberal Politician

This liberal wants to control the rising costs of health care with price controls, AKA a new law, limiting the growth of health care costs to 3.85 percent per year.

To remedy these problems, however, will require far more than the efforts of the Federal Government--although the Federal role is vital and will be met by this Administration." ~ Big Liberal Politician


* Treatment for Alcoholism and Drug addiction is COVERED in-patient or out-patient.

* Free Dental and eye care for all children under age 13 is COVERED

* Treatment for Sickle Cell Disease is covered.

* Even treatment for Venereal Disease is covered.

* Family Planning was also covered in this Liberal Eugenics program

More than a half century has passed since basic legislation was enacted to ensure the safety of the foods and drugs which Americans consume. Since then, industrial and agricultural revolutions have generated an endless variety of new products, food additives, industrial compounds, cosmetics, synthetic fabrics and other materials which are employed to feed, clothe, medicate and adorn the American consumer. These revolutions created an entirely new man-made environment--and we must make absolutely certain that this new environment does not bring harmful side effects which outweigh its evident benefits." ~ Big Liberal Politician

Liberals, liberals, liberals, always standing in the way of progress, wanting to federalize control of nursing homes, because he says he "cares" what kind of care seniors are given. He cares alright, "can I see your RED health care card Comrade?" That's right; he wanted to force every single God-fearin' American to carry a health care card with a magnetic strip, like a credit card. Oh, it was the mark of the beast for sure, with this communist devil-card, if you were in an accident or got sick, just swipe your card and you get a free ride to the hospital courtesy of your RED Uncle Sam. The card also held other information about you, like your medical history and your drug allergies.

Handicapping Conditions: In America today there are half a million blind, 850,000 deaf and 15 million suffering paralysis and loss of limbs. So far, the major responses to their need to gain self-sufficiency, have been vocational rehabilitation and welfare programs. Now the skills that took us to the moon and back need to be put to work developing devices to help the blind see, the deaf hear and the crippled move. ~ Big Liberal Politician

Liberals " don't they just make you sick? Help the poor, help the sick, help the blind and help the lame, never thinking about the poor suffering millionaire.

I who am I? Born at the pinnacle of American prosperity to parents raised during the last great depression. I was the youngest child of the youngest children born almost between the generations and that in fact clouds and obscures who it is that (more...)
