Setting: doctor's office.
Receptionist: Sorry sir, you have no health insurance.
Patient: What do you mean? Barack Obama socialized medicine, we're all covered now.
Receptionist: Yes, but you didn't make your health insurance payments.
Patient: What payments? It's free!
Receptionist: My records show that you haven't made donations to the Democrats.
Far fetched? I sure hope so. But to suggest that govt controlled health care won't be influenced by politics is impossibly naive.
Hey, I'm not dogmatic. But I think that people who would give the govt more responsibilities would do well should insist that we get rid of the existing corruption and improve the performance of existing functions first. Is there something partisan about that?
