Health Care = Slavery?

Right-wing pooh-bahs in Texas are exploding in rage over today’s Supreme Court ruling upholding health care reform. We’ll have more coming later, but we thought this one from Michael Quinn Sullivan — head of the anti-government group Empower Texans — was really over the top.

    Wow, I guess the State of Texas forcing all drivers to be insured is slavery too. I am unaware of any state that does not make liability insurance mandatory. I don’t know of a state that does not do the same.

    If my youngest child had had protection such as the PPACA affords, I would not have had to pay over $100,000 keeping him alive. Even though he did not have asthma until we came to the D/FW area, my insurance company refused to pay for his care because they deemed that it was a “pre-existing” condition. Too bad their parents never bothered to get married!

    Just remember, conservative opponents of freedom for slaves go it wrong too.

    Today would have been a really good day to be in the hari-kari short sword business. I could have made a fortune—even given them away.
