Confused, Part 3

Glenn Smith at the far-left Firedoglake site says:
The gravity of America's health care crisis is the moral equivalent of the 19th Century's bloody conflict over slavery. This is not hyperbole.
Uh . . . um . . . step away from the keyboard.

Or consider this: President Obama refused to pledge that he and his family would accept limits on medical treatment, "[If] it's my family member, if it's my wife, if it's my children, if it's my grandmother, I always want them to get the very best care." Is such freedom slavery?

... and this is not bullshit.

No, really...

Yeah, I know it smells like it.

And yeah, it pretty much looks like it.

And God knows it tastes like it.

But it's not!

I swear!

Glenn:

I recommend these three prior NOfP posts, which set forth how you've overstated the problem. And these two on why Obama's plan won't fix it.
