If a politician can grab this kind of power from a non-health care political office, buy generic synthroid online, Synthroid bangkok, imagine the kind of power he’d wield if he were appointed to a seat on some future nationalized Health Care Panel charged with making policy decisions about who gets what kind of medical care.
‘Personal responsibility’ and ‘disease prevention’ loom large in the current national health care reform debate. But what if ‘personal responsibility’ became a condition for obtaining medical care? A history of good behavior gave someone a pass to the head of the medical treatment line, synthroid cheapest price, Cheap synthroid internet, while bad behavior relegated one to the end of the line or out of the queue altogether.
Who would define ‘good’ and ‘bad’? Politicians, find synthroid on internet, Online synthroid, of course. And that should terrify everyone regardless of his or her political persuasion.
The bitter debate over abortion we're watching in Washington would be only the beginning.
