Left's Healthcare Lies - Part 5

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

Summary: This installment covers:

15. Democrats lost Congress in 1994 because President Clinton failed to pass national health care.

16. America's relatively low life expectancy compared to countries with socialist health care proves welfare-state health care is better.

Republicans swept Congress in 1994 not because Clinton failed to nationalize health care, but because he tried to nationalize health care.

My Views:
One of the oddest things about this whole controversy is that the supporters think that if they only passed this thing, then the public will change from hating it to loving it. The problem is that they've got to pass it and it has to work. That means that defit does not increase deficit spending. It is difficult to see this happening.

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.
