Paglia On Pelosicare

Camille Paglia takes the Democrats to school on Pelosicare (while sort of admiring Grandma).
why can't my fellow Democrats see that the creation of another huge, inefficient federal bureaucracy would slow and disrupt the delivery of basic healthcare and subject us all to a labyrinthine mass of incompetent, unaccountable petty dictators? Massively expanding the number of healthcare consumers without making due provision for the production of more healthcare providers means that we're hurtling toward a staggering logjam of de facto rationing. Steel yourself for the deafening screams from the careerist professional class of limousine liberals when they get stranded for hours in the jammed, jostling anterooms of doctors' offices. They'll probably try to hire Caribbean nannies as ringers to do the waiting for them.
She makes the point that most bothers me --the nuttiness of the idea that we can simply import the Canadian system, which covers 30 million people, fewer people than California alone-- to a nation of more than 300 million people. And with a system created overnight, without due diligence in reading and debating its provisions? You have to be wicked, crazy or both to agree to such a thing under those conditions, I don't care how socialist you are. You're just going to trust politicians literally with your life?
How dare anyone claim humane aims for this bill anyhow when its funding is based on a slashing of Medicare by over $400 billion? The brutal abandonment of the elderly here is unconscionable. One would have expected a Democratic proposal to include an expansion of Medicare, certainly not its gutting. The passive acquiescence of liberal commentators to this vandalism simply demonstrates how partisan ideology ultimately desensitizes the mind.
She also points to a simple solution for all this wickedness: simply force Congress to apply the plan to itself.

Oh, no, couldn't do that. We're necessary.
