Left's Healthcare Lies - Part 2

My take on Ann Coulter's latest. Her column was published on

Summary: This installment covers abortions, rationing, and cost control with a humorous play on the CIA angle to distract attention from the Healthcare issue.

List: The New National Health Care Plan will:
  1. Have no rationing.
  2. Reduce costs.
  3. Not cover abortions.

With the Democrats getting slaughtered -- or should I say, "receiving mandatory end-of-life counseling" -- in the debate over national health care, the Obama administration has decided to change the subject by indicting CIA interrogators for talking tough to three of the world's leading Muslim terrorists.

My Views: I doubt that Obama is using the prosecution of CIA agents as a device to distract attention to the issue. This is just Coulter humor. As for the main topics, she makes some effective points. Abortion funding may not be explicitly included in the bill but does anybody seriously think that when passed and it comes to Obama implementing it, that abortion funding won't be there? As for rationing, well . . . how can it be otherwise? Others have looked at the costs of this thing is a very seriously way and there is a great deal to be concerned about.

Anybody who is as hated as Ann Coulter is must be doing something right. She is very right-wing but every left-wing blogger would love to write like her. I hate rants; opinion pieces must argue from the facts. Pay attention to how she uses facts and draws politically incorrect connections among them. People would do well to think and not just be outraged.

Here's her Wiki bio. Her latest book is at the right.
