Big Brother Isn't Just Watching You. He's Now Your Doctor.

Would the federal government actually discourage that colonoscopy that might well save your life by revealing an early cancer that needs to be treated? Would it take a similar line against the practice of mammograms, PSA prostate screenings, and other preventive measures?

Could ObamaCare be that inefficient ...that cruel?

Yes, yes, and yes.

Indeed, noted medical ethicist Wesley J. Smith sees new evidence that the federal government (with full approval of the New York Times, by the way) is establishing "wage and price controls in health-care, all determined by the minions of the federal bureaucracy."

Felling queasy about that? Well, take two aspirin and call the White House in the morning.
