Quote of the Day: On Rush and Health Care

Althouse (HT Instapundit):

Much re-tweeted at Twitter: “The people calling for Rush Limbaugh to die are the same people who ask to control your healthcare.”

Also noted by Althouse:

Rush Limbaugh has said on his show many times that once the government runs health care, there is a threat that life-or-death decisions will be made based on politics, and people will worry that if they criticize the government or espouse the wrong opinions decisions will go against them.

For some power-hungry far-left statists, that’s not a bug. It’s a feature.

Does anyone seriously doubt that someone who has advocated mass sterilization through the water supply, or who advocates reordering who receives care based on “communitarian” concepts including “instrumental value,” would even blink at the idea, if proposed, of eliminating political opponents or dissidents if their health care gets “too expensive”? At least two such people are within the walls of the Obama administration. That’s not speculation. It’s in their body of written work, and as far as I know, they’ve never said, “I was wrong. I am sorry.” Sadly, I doubt they ever will.
