Rhetoric V. Reality: Health Care by Orwell

by Dick Morris and Eileen McGann at Townhall.com

President Obama’s rhetoric Wednesday night summoned the memory of “1984,” George Orwell’s novel of a nightmarish future — where the slogan of the rulers is “War is peace; freedom is slavery; ignorance is strength.”

The president assures us that he will cut health-care spending … by adding $1 trillion to health-care spending.

He says that “health-care decisions will not be made by government” … while he sets up a new Federal Health Board to tell doctors what treatments they can offer and to whom and under what circumstances.

Obama told the media, “I will free doctors to make good health care decisions” … by telling the physicians what to do.

When the president says he guarantees the “same coverage” to people who like their current health-insurance policies, he means that their current HMOs, insurers and doctors will be the ones to implement the protocols and instructions the government hands down to them — not that we’ll have our current freedom of decision-making.
