California Offers ObamaCare Preview

California continues to blaze a trail into our glorious socialist future:

A Superior Court judge in Sacramento County has rejected arguments that pending budget cuts to eliminate adult Medi-Cal dental benefits offered by low-income community and rural clinics violated federal law.

Judge Timothy Frawley, in a ruling made public Wednesday, said the Legislature was within its rights when it voted in February to save the state money by cutting adult Denti-Cal benefits, along with other benefits including podiatry and optometry, effective July 1.

After Obama nationalizes healthcare, think how much money the government will save by leaving us to pull out our own teeth with pliers, like they do in Britain. If that doesn’t fill up the multi-$trillion budget gap, bureauweenies can deny medical care to anyone over 70. Then anyone over 65. Then anyone over 60…
