Death Panels come early to Arizona

... for Chandler, Arizona's Tiffany Tate:
The Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System announced it would stop paying for lung transplants as of Oct. 1.

AHCCCS officials say the cuts were necessary to keep the state's form of Medicaid from operating at a deficit.

This is obvious stuff. Health care is expensive. Government health care always means rationing.

Don't forget this doublespeak from the Ministry of Truth.

It states: Kavita Patel, who works with Senior Adviser Valerie Jarrett and who worked for years before as a physician, debunks the myth that reform will mean a "government takeover" of health care or lead to "rationing." To the contrary, reform will forbid many forms of rationing that are currently being used by insurance companies.

I need to drink a lot more Victory Gin before that makes sense to me.

Government health care always means rationing.

And that's different from private insurance or any other healthcare provider how, exactly?

In a free country, you could choose from a variety of plans at a variety of prices. Some better plans would cover more expensive stuff, and they'd cost more.

But the socialist regime says competition and choice are bad, so everybody has to have ObamaCare and if you need a surgery the state can't afford, you die.

Forget gold, I'm stocking up on McNuggets (I heard they live forever without refrigeration), Camels, and vodka. When Chairman Maobama decides we can no longer indulge in fatty foods, cigarettes and booze, I'll start a speakeasy out of my apartment and make a fortune. Enough to afford a lung transplant in South America.

Viva la Hope and Change

Happy Super Tuesday!
