Old and Busted: “The Nanny State.”
New Hotness: “Momma Fed.” [UPDATED]

Edwards backs mandatory preventive care

Edwards said his mandatory health care plan would cover preventive, chronic and long-term health care. The plan would include mental health care as well as dental and vision coverage for all Americans.

“The whole idea is a continuum of care, basically from birth to death,” he said.

He admits that “from the womb to the tomb” is the kind of control he imagines America’s bureaucratic overlords should have over the nation’s citizenry. It’s mind-bogglingly stupid to say it out loud, though.

The former North Carolina senator said all presidential candidates talking about health care “ought to be asked one question: Does your plan cover every single American?”

“Because if it doesn’t they should be made to explain what child, what woman, what man in America is not worthy of health care,” he said. “Because in my view, everybody is worth health care.”

And every American–or illegal alien, for that matter–HAS health care, you jibbering loon. If you’re sick or you’re hurt, you walk into the nearest emergency room and you will be cared for by the hospital’s staff.

That is, until they are forced to close their doors because they are drowning in a sea of red ink.

It’s health care insurance that you’re talking about providing, numbnuts. And according to your plan, what happens to a guy like me? I pay my own way, health insurance-wise, yet the only way on God’s Green Earth I visit one of the white jacketed crew is if I’m unconscious, a bone is showing, or Wife™, almost literally, holds a gun to my head. In the last twenty or so years I’ve seen a doctor, dentist or optometrist, collectively, a grand total of maybe seven times, and three of those were this year when Wife™ found out what was going on with my teeth.

You want to force me to be poked and prodded (and in the case of “mental health,” have my head shrunk) on a Federally mandated schedule, or… what? If I refuse to comply, do you kick me to the curb and tell me to piss off and die?

Coming up next from Silky: “No booze, no butts, and eat your bloody veggies or there’ll be no dessert for you, mister… now turn your head, cough, and read the bottom line on the wall chart.”

UPDATE: Is this kinda shit part of Silky Pony’s plan?

A pregnant woman has been told that her baby will be taken from her at birth because she is deemed capable of “emotional abuse”, even though psychiatrists treating her say there is no evidence to suggest that she will harm her child in any way.
