Heh: Word ‘free’ quietly disappears from Obamacare website
   

By Doug Powers  •  September 30, 2013 11:19 AM


If you think health care is expensive now, wait until you see what it costs when it’s free. – P.J. O’Rourke
 *****


In the retail industry this kind of thing is called “bait and switch”:

Before mid-September, a section on Healthcare.gov had this: “Where can I get free or low-cost care in my community?”

After mid-September, that became this without mention of the change: “Where can I get low-cost care in my community?”



At some point I predict the word “affordable” will also be removed from the “Affordable Care Act,” which then become the “‘Ok So It’s Expensive and You Can’t Keep Your Old Plan or Doctor But Shut Up Because We Know What’s Best’ Care Act.”

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams

I doubt that the majority of the 'low information voters' are able to read anyway! :beer:

Or know what a website is. :pondering:
