The Columbus (Ohio) Dispatch runs a regular feature in its newspaper identifying an important issue to the local community and asking the vote of the readers on that issue along with comments. Occasionally I will respond and comment on the issue raised, as I did to yesterday’s topic.

The Hot Issue:

Would you oppose President Barack Obama's health-care plan if it allowed for Medicaid-funded abortions?

_X_ Yes
___ No

My Response:

With or without government mandated or funded abortions, I oppose ObamaCare. I oppose ObamaCare on principle. It is unnecessary, wasteful, free-enterprise killing, socialistic, inefficient and ineffective. It is socialized medicine.

One needs only look to see what Congress and the past Presidents have done to Social Security and to Medicare to see failure by big government to steward such a massive program. It would be beyond foolish to trust the government to fix health care.

Health care does need reform, but it does not need the proposed detonation of the present system, replacing it with something far worse. By mandating abortion funding and end of life rationing it makes ObamaCare even morally reprehensible in addition to the fact that it would be a financial fiasco.
