Racing off the cliff...

U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on the health care bill, from a speech she delivered yesterday:

You’ve heard about the controversies within the bill, the process about the bill, one or the other. But I don’t know if you have heard that it is legislation for the future, not just about health care for America, but about a healthier America, where preventive care is not something that you have to pay a deductible for or out of pocket. Prevention, prevention, prevention—it’s about diet, not diabetes. It’s going to be very, very exciting.

But we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it, away from the fog of the controversy.

We have to pass the bill so we can find out what is in it? Making law isn't "Let's Make a Deal", folks (selecting the prize in Box 1, Box 2, or Box 3). We are talking about major legislation that is trying to impose major controls on how we use our own bodies, applying the same arrogant logic that Susan Zhu expressed in The Harvard Independent last week.

Passing this bill is a huge step toward absolute tyranny over the lives of Americans. Pass this, and we can kiss what's left of our freedom goodbye.
