Unsurprisingly, Barack Obama's big bipartisan Healthcare Summit proved to be a crapfest of truly remarkable proportions - at least on the part of the Democrats.
The Republicans brought impressive ideas, facts, statistics, and proven methods of reducing healthcare costs...and raised concerns about huge budget deficits, new taxes and fines, the potential destruction of our medical system through government interference, and the unsustainable course of entitlement programs.
Typical of her party's rebuttals, Democrat Louise Slaughter countered with a heartbreaking story about a woman without dentures who "wore her dead sister's teeth, which of course were uncomfortable and did not fit."
She then asked, "Did you ever think in America that that's where we would be?" And truthfully, we have to answer "no." We never thought that America would actually have to debate which is more important: freedom...or free dentures.
