If you don't have time for 2700 pages . . .

Thomas Peters passes along a summary of the Obama administration's Health Care bill by Jimmy Bell:
The Senate Health Care Reform Bill spends taxpayer dollars on health care plans that fund abortions, spends $12 billion on Community Health Centers that Planned Parenthood will be eligible for, gives the Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius the right to declare abortion as a pre-existing condition to be covered under every health care plan in the federal exchange under the Mikulski Amendment, eliminates conscience protections for insurance providers, trip-wires the direct funding of abortions to potential expiration, and forces everyone including men and old women to pay at least $1 (to be raised under jurisdiction of Congress) to a fund for “reproductive rights” that will cover 100% of the cost for anyone who gets elective abortions. To say that the Senate Health Care Reform Bill is the greatest expansion of abortion since Roe v. Wade is an understatement.

Great opening!

Gil, this is where I have my reservations about the jovial encounters between Shaw and Chesterton. As you intimated near the end of your article, the situation of our Christian heritage has deteriorated to a point where such humor might be inappropriate.

I can't imagine that Obama and Pelosi are so stupid that they don't understand the effects of this.

Therefore I consider it likely that they want to deliberately weaken the United States. They want to diminish the number of children, who are our real strength, and encourage the irresponsible use of human sexuality, which of course leads to the weakening of families, which should be the most stable and nuturing institution we have.

Apart from the ethical issues, I consider such a bill to be pure subversion of our nation.
