The Unraveling of Government Health Care

The online insurance marketplace that Vermont built to enroll people in private coverage under the law had extensive technical failures.
Obama's health insurance scheme has taken a hatchet to low-income workers.
The Department of Veterans Affairs has been spending at least $6 billion a year in violation of federal contracting rules to pay for medical care and supplies, wasting taxpayer money and putting veterans at risk....
The inspector general of the dept. "started a formal investigation into the nearly $300,000 relocation bonus paid to a senior VA official when she was transferred from Washington to lead the Philadelphia regional office last year." Finally in Britain, land of the National Health Disservice, a 92-year-old man had to wait 26 hours in the emergency ward because there were no hospital beds available.

Obama = The Anti-Science President

In 2008, Obama called the science on vaccination as "inconclusive". This is not surprising, we're talking about the president who whined about ATMs taking away people's jobs. To be fair to Obama, he does represent his core constituency, the scientifically illiterate liberals:
The communities where anti-vaxxers cluster are also among the most liberal. Marin County, San Francsico County and Alameda County all voted overwhelmingly for Obama in 2008. In Marin, 78 percent of the vote went to Obama. In San Francisco, it was 84 percent. And in Alameda, it was 79 percent. That's all higher than what Obama got in his own home county of Cook County, Illinois. Here, too, Sacramento is an exception. Only 58 percent of the county went for Obama in 2008.
The Prius drivers and the press are among the worst offenders.
