Do The Freakin Math

Liberals and conservatives alike frequently rely on limited evidence, personal experience, religious beliefs or gut emotions to determine solutions for complex problems. From immigration to global warming - taxes to terrorism - or health care to free trade - analytical study is rare. Science based policy making isn’t the way of Washington. And the consequences are catastrophic. Change is urgently needed. Just do the freakin’ math.

Healthcare is Loss of Freedom???

You are witnessing the return of the right-wing wing-nut framing talents. Conservative ideologue are claiming that the current health care bill is the "greatest threat" to our freedoms...that they have seen in their lives.
They are covering the media with this virulant soundbite as a relatively mild H1N1 pandemic is testing the limits of our already understaffed and underfunded 'health care system'. Let's overlook the fact that it is realy and 'ill care' management failure.
Last December the bipartisan Commission on the prevention of WMD,terrorism and proliferation stated there is a 50/50 chance we will see a WMD attack somewhere in the world in the next 5 years, and that their current report (historically the only commission ever reauthorized by Congress)said the most likely target is the US...and that the best we can do is prepare for it. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to understand that our so called 'health care system' is our first line of defense and that it is entirely incapable of handling a mild virus. The economic situation has resulted in cuts to our health care system with an approximate loss of 15,000 health care workers job.
Weaponized small pox will rock out world, not to mention the our list of freedoms.
