Big Brother Alert: Dems censor health care criticism

A few weeks ago, John wrote about what we can learn about socialized medicine from Massachusetts. Well, I think there’s one lesson he overlooked: the government health care fetishists can never be open and honest about their agenda. Recently, House Dems blocked Republicans from communicating with their constituents about health care “reform”:

Democrats are preventing Republican House Members from sending their constituents a mailing that is critical of the majority’s health care reform plan, blocking the mailing by alleging that it is inaccurate.

Republican Members have made 20 requests to mail a version of the chart to their constituents and have been told that the requests are being delayed while the commission reviews allegations that the chart is misleading.

“Hiding the truth about wildly unpopular policies is a Democrat specialty,” said one GOP aide. “I’d like to see the flow chart on how Speaker [Nancy] Pelosi plans on implementing the open and transparent government she keeps promising everyone.”

So there you have it: Whether it’s in the USSR or the US, socialism requires censorship. To implement their agenda, socialists have two tools: either lies and propaganda, or government force. The House Dems are doing a bang-up job at using both.
