Universal healthcare is terrorist recruitment tool

New message from the Republican propaganda machine. This is what it's come to... Who is Jerry Bowyer, you ask? A neocon who will say anything to derail the democratic agenda. This pseudo-logic is truly frightening! But how desperate they must be to have stooped to this.


  1. It is deeply disturbing how information can be distorted to support hatred and prejudice as a reason for not supporting universal healthcare.

  2. There are many reasons to worry about putting the most inefficient and most restrictive organization in America in charge of our health care. Americans exercise their individuality in many ways, but perhaps one of the most important areas for most of us is with respect to our health and its care. Government always forces us to do things in a one-size-fits-all manner, depriving us or our choices.

    The problem of physician shortages in state-run health care systems is very real. It causes costs to go up and patients to have to wait long times for attention. Meanwhile, these patients suffer pain, loss of work and income, and a great loss of dignity and self-esteem.

    If the state-run system turns to foreign-trained doctors with training inferior to that usually obtained in America, this is also a real problem. It is less so, if patients can avoid the doctors they have no confidence in, but in a state-run system they have to take who they are assigned to.

    As for the doctors brought in from Muslim countries being terrorists, I cannot predict the future. It is disturbing that so many Muslim doctors and health care workers in Britain were so little inclined to care about the people that they plotted to kill them with bombs. I might hesitate to have a doctor do heart surgery on me if I knew him to be making bombs in his basement.
