Just Like We Said: "Health Insurance Reform" Has Nothing to Do With Health Insurance Reform

It doesn't have anything to do with "health care" reform -- the last unpopular iteration of the Socialist's attempt to hijack nearly 20% of the economy -- either. If anything proves this, it's the fact that Democrats soundly defeated an attempt by Kentucky Senator Jim Bunning to require them them to actually have a bill and have it analyzed by the Congressional Budget Office at least 72 hours before voting on it.

This was Senator John F'in Kerry's lame excuse for not wanting to know what he was voting for:

Democrats argued that waiting for the legislative languange to be written, and for the CBO to evaluate it, would needlessly delay the process by weeks.
"Let's be honest about it, most people don't read the legislative language," Sen. John Kerry said.
 Presumably this legislative language "most people don't read" would be eerily similar to the HR3200 legislative language that hundreds of thousands of ordinary Americans printed, bound and pored over before they attended town hall meetings to quiz their "representatives" on why the legislative language was written in such a way that it deprived people of the right to keep their own health care plans, throwing them into a crappy government plan, set up panels of bureaucrats who decided whether old folks lived or whether they just "took a pill" (to use the death panel denier's phrase), would tax the hell out of employers and employees alike and still run huge deficits and slash hundreds of billions out of Medicare among many other things. No, you're right Mr. F'in Kerry: most people don't read it, most concerned people devoured it.

The bottom line here is this: If these folks really cared about reforming "health insurance", they would have no problem taking the time to expose their plans to the light of day. But this isn't about health care, it's about radically transforming our society by taking complete control of one of the most private and personal aspects of any American's life: Their health care. And this, in turn, gives them the green light to take control of many other aspects of our lives and rob us of our liberty in the name of providing everything for us. They are coming for our "health care" and if they've got our health care, they've got everything.
