LIBERALS view themselves as the moral and intellectual superiors to conservatives, which seems to be true until liberals gain power. Then the sweetheart deals for billionaire backers begin. Remember Solyndra?
And of course, the dumb programs and Carter administration-style incompetence return. If the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is a preview of government-run health care, America need never again worry about single-payer or universal health coverage. Thanks to the dummies President Obama appointed, more Americans now are leery of government-run health care.
Consider this confrontation between Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and Rep. Renee Ellmers, R-N.C., in October over the Sebeliusian decree that men must buy maternity care insurance.
Ellmers: "But men are required to purchase maternity coverage."
Sebelius: "Well, an insurance policy has a series of benefits whether you use them or not."
Ellmers: "And that is why health care premiums are increasing, because we are forcing them to buy things that they will never need. Thank you."
Sebelius: "The individual policies cover families. Men often do need maternity care for their spouses and for their families, yes."
Ellmers: "A single male, aged 32, does need maternity coverage? To the best of your knowledge, has a man ever delivered a baby?"
Shouldn't President Obama have made sure Sebelius knew the facts of life before putting her in charge of America's medical industry?
Sebelius is not the only liberal trying to regulate things she does not understand. Rep. Diane DeGette, D-Colo., urged gun legislation in a forum hosted by the Denver Post.
