Jim Hightower on Bush’s Ideological Snake Oil

Populist/liberal Jim Hightower has a great barbed wit, and today posted a great commentary skewering the administration’s attitude towards health care reform.

…But Bush the dogmatist even disputes reality. In a July speech to the Cleveland chamber of commerce, he assured the audience that the lack of health coverage really isn’t such a big deal: “I mean, people have access to health care in America,” George informed them. “After all, you just go to an emergency room.”

He’s not the quickest bunny in the litter, is he?

Read his column, “Bush’s Ideological Snake Oil.”

    When we rely on emergency room services, we end up with poor health in that screenings, prevention and all that is thrown out the window. Personally, I’m thrilled to see so much public discussion about health care and how to improve things here in the USA. Bout time. Meanwhile, I’m reapplying for CHIP.
