Edwards Would Force You to Go To The Doctor

Democrats always claim that President Bush and the Republicans are taking away their freedoms. You know, they’re doing crazy stuff like monitoring questionable financial transactions from people they’ve been monitoring for a while. And then there’s those damn wiretapping suspected-terrorist phone calls. Yet, they go out and support a man who would force you to go to the doctor. Not recommend. Force. That’s freedom?

Democratic presidential hopeful John Edwards said on Sunday that his universal health care proposal would require that Americans go to the doctor for preventive care.

“It requires that everybody be covered. It requires that everybody get preventive care,” he told a crowd sitting in lawn chairs in front of the Cedar County Courthouse. “If you are going to be in the system, you can’t choose not to go to the doctor for 20 years. You have to go in and be checked and make sure that you are OK.”

He noted, for example, that women would be required to have regular mammograms in an effort to find and treat “the first trace of problem.”

Hear that ladies? You want to get an abortion? That’s up to you. You want to decide not to go to the doctor? He’ll force ya to. Oh the freedom! How much is this craptastic, freedom-sucking, socialist medical plan going to cost Americans each year? According to Edwards, who lives in his own world, over $120 billion a year. How will he pay for this? Why, by ending Bush’s tax cuts, of course!

Craptastic! So craptastic, that even the Associated Press stops just short of calling Edwards a hypocrite, reminding people of his idiocy on SUVs. (Edwards, who wants you to give yours up, owns 2).
