HuffPo Comes Close To Dropping The "F-bomb"

The Weekly Standard links to an interesting article up over at the Huffington Post entitled "The Democrats Authoritarian Health 'Reform' Bill and the Ascendency of Corporatism in the Democratic Party" concerning the Obama Administrations' apparent shift toward a policy of "corporatist liberalism". Key passages from the article:

"For the first time in American history, Democrats are about to pass a bill that uses the coercive power of the federal government to force every American - simply by virtue of being American - to purchase the products of a private company. At heart, the Democrats' solution to 48 million uninsured is to force them to buy inadequate private insurance - with potentially high deductibles and co-pays and no price controls - or be fined by the federal government...In effect, this represents a historic defeat for the type of liberalism represented by the New Deal and the Great Society and the ascendency of a new type of corporatist liberalism."

Corporatist liberalism, liberal fascism...toe-may-toe, toe-mah-toe.

Now even the choir is getting restless. This health care 'reform' hymn may not be over just yet.

When are we going to get to see this new Senate bill? What about these constitutional questions? Is this just going up to then get tossed by the Supreme Court. Seems like an outrageous waste of money. I guess that now is the time to join the insurance industry.

Don't we find it strange that the group we wanted reformed is now the center of the plan and will be the largest benefactor.

Damned right they're getting restless. They can read poll numbers like everyone else. Check this out:
It seems that Chicago's most successful organized crime family is getting cold feet. Let me see if I've got this straight. They trained this guy, took him under their wing, supported him at every turn, and now that they're getting exactly what they worked for, they're balking.
Somebody over there must have forgotten to factor in that maybe, just maybe the American people might friggin' hate their Chicago style brand of politics where every special interest gets something, everybody takes home a slice of the cake...EXCEPT THE GOD-DAMNED PRODUCTIVE PEOPLE WHO ARE PAYING FOR IT ALL!
