Those whose arguments are empty of fact are usually full of shit. --David Porter

In South Carolina, an enraged constituent told Republican Rep. Bob Inglis to "keep your government hands off my Medicare!" Rep. Ingliss explained to the man that,"Actually, sir, your health care is being provided by the government,"but the man did not believe Ingliss, shouting "You're lying, you're lying".

A woman sent a letter to the White House furiously stating, "I don't want government-run health care, I don't want socialized medicine and don't touch my Medicare."

Republican pundit Arthur Laffer quipped, "If you like the post office and the Department of Motor Vehicles, and you think they're run well, just wait till you see Medicare, Medicaid and health care done by the government."

Now, this isn't brain surgery. Listen carefully, people...MEDICARE IS RUN BY THE GOVERNMENT. That means that Medicare IS GOVERNMENT-RUN HEALTHCARE. If you are on Medicare, then you use government-run healthcare already. If you like Medicare, then you like government run healthcare.

So stop whining about how government-run healthcare will use euthanasia or will make you sick or will deny life-saving treatment. Does Medicare do any of those things? No? Then pull your heads out of your asses and stop saying idiotic things like "Keep government out of Medicare". It cannot be done, kind of like Republicans cannot pull their heads out of their asses in order to think clearly and do their own research on healthcare issues.
