Stimulus Speaks the Language of Americans
The Obamites know how to speak to Americans in a way that they cannot refuse, refute, or resist. Nothing yet has demonstrated the technique like the Stimulus bill's universal health care wrapped up as the nationwide digital health records system.
The success of passing this is found in this statement: "Medicare now pays for treatments deemed safe and effective. The stimulus bill would change that and apply a cost-effectiveness standard." The key is found in the phrase, cost-effectiveness, which is the new morality which only Allah seems to be immune to.
To the corrupt mind of the average pew sitter this is the holy grail of the greedy; the how the covetous explain to their neighbor why they are robbing him with a straight face.
The cost effectiveness of treatment will include the patient in the analysis whose own "contribution" to the tax base is considered. In short, is it cost effective that a patient live or not? Neither mercy nor compassion is cost effective. Language such as this will pass because the "conservatives" cannot refute the doctrine of statism: God ordained the state.
The reasoning of present day Christians and Jews is no different than that of the 1930's law abiding German. Even then, the Judenrat deemed that it was better to go to the camps because the alternative was worse. Worse than what, nobody asked. According to this confused doctrine, Hitler, the lawfully elected leader, was god's chosen and the pew sitters must support him with obedience and prayer. Even Mao. At least that’s what is beginning to circulate in the useless pulpits.
Cost effectiveness can justify rebuilding the camps to reduce the parasitic cost of the ill, of terrorists, of carbon criminals, and of those spreading radicalism. And not one American in 1000 would do more than complain about it.
