DURST: Liberals and Health Care Reform
Oh my God, here we go again.Wake up Harry and Louise or whatever the hell they were called, because the liberals are planning to mess with health care again. Bill Bradley, the so-called cerebral candidate -- meaning he should know better than to get involved in an issue stickier than a frosted cinammon roll on a vinyl seat in Death Valley -- unveiled a reform package that would enable every American child to have health insurance.Did you hear that? Every one of them. Not just the children of those who can afford the deductibles, but all of them. Poor kids even. And he wants to use the federal budget surplus to pay for it. To squander away our hard-earned tax cuts for the health of the children of America's less fortunate.What is he thinking? The man has obviously gone quite mad. Now, we all know compassionate conservatism is when you pass a homeless guy on the street and say "Hi," but this is bleeding heart liberalism at its worst. Whatever happened to the survival of the fittest? The thinning of the herd? Next thing you know he'll be calling for a living wage, probably citing some lame excuse like poor people's right to eat food. Damn liberals.Will Durst bets real family values candidates like Gary Bauer aren't jumpin' on any health care reform bandwagon.
