Washington Post socialized medicine expert claims that Senator Joe Lieberman will cause the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people by opposing the Democrat’s nationalized health care bill.
In a post on The Washington Post’s Web site dated Dec. 14, Klein viciously attacked Sen. Joe Lieberman, I-Ct., after reports surfaced that Lieberman would filibuster the current health care bill if it meant expanding Medicare (h/t Amanda Carpenter at The Washington Times) (emphasis added).
“And if there’s a policy rationale here, it’s not apparent to me, or to others who’ve interviewed him,” Klein wrote. “At this point, Lieberman seems primarily motivated by torturing liberals. That is to say, he seems willing to cause the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people in order to settle an old electoral score.”

In related news… The New York Post reported today that the US health care system is still the best in the world. As an example, American men have a much greater chance of surviving prostrate cancer than men in Europe. American men have a 99.3 percent chance of surviving it — far higher than in any Western European country. It’s not a death sentence here. In Scotland only 71 percent survive, in Germany, only 85 percent survive. Women in the US also have a better chance of surviving breast cancer. And the democrats cuts in spending on Medicare patients, as the House and Senate “reform” bills propose, will cost thousands of lives.
