Letter to the editor: Rumors, myths, fear mongering
President Obama's push for health care reform has brought on a tsunami of rumors, myths, fear-mongering and mis-information, and an outrageous assault on truth. Here are some of the questions that have arisen andthe answers.
Will the government take over health care so we end up with socialized medicine? No.
Will private insurance be outlawed or wither on the vine? No.
Will the government encourage euthanasia to save costs? No.
Will Medicare be eliminated or gutted to pay for reform? No.
Will the government ration care? No.
Is all this opposition an example of "I've got mine, to heck with you'?
