I just realized Joe Biden actually told the truth about something

Recently Joe Biden told an AARP audience that in order for the US to avoid going bankrupt we needed to spend a trillion dollars on health care reform.

(CNSNews.com) – Vice President Joe Biden told people attending an AARP town hall meeting that unless the Democrat-supported health care plan becomes law the nation will go bankrupt and that the only way to avoid that fate is for the government to spend more money.
Everyone pretty roundly ridiculed him for the remark but this evening I realized he is teeling the truth. Here's the realization I came to - Health care reform isn't really about health care at all, it's about reducing the entitlement burden from an aging US population. By rationing care to older people they will die off sooner reducing the long term costs to Social Security and Medicare. It's a short term investment for a long term payoff. Sneaky 'lil batards huh?

Hoist On Their Own Retard.

Mike at Cold Fury's been harshing my mellow since at least some time in 2002 and maybe earlier, I'm not sure when I found his blog. If you're not reading him you should be. He doesn't post all that much, but when he gets off a good one, he really gets off a good ope.

In this post he links to an American Thinker article that points out something that should be hit hard, hit often and shouted from the rooftops, considering the current health care "debate". I am a little upset I didn't think about it.

Ted Kennedy is 76 and has brain cancer, life expectancy is around 78.
Quote from the American Thinker article
Is Senator Kennedy's life valuable enough to dedicate millions of dollars to extending it another month, another day, another year?

We've been told that there must be some realistic valuation. Remember the article from last week about how if you only have 6 months to live the gov't should let you die instead of spending money to keep you alive for only a short time?

Let's introduce this into the health care "debate" and demand that, since Teddy is all in favor of the gov't being in charge and therefore de facto in favor of rationing, he should set an example for all of us and just die.

That way he wouldn't be "wasting" valuable health care resources that could be used for a woman who's buying food for her kids instead of health care.

Washington's state government in action

In these troubled times, it's nice to know that they're doing the all-important work that the people fish of the state have elected them to do.
