Ann Coulter brings clarity and humor to today's health care debate in her new column today at WorldNetDaily. Opens Coulter:
"All the problems with the American health care system come from government intervention, so naturally the Democrats' idea for fixing it is more government intervention. This is like trying to sober up by having another drink."
Coulter explains why some Americans don't have health insurance because they've chosen not to buy it.
"The reaction to Mitchell's work is always the same," said Joseph Farah, editor and chief executive officer of WND. "Any time somebody checks out his work, they are blown away."
Writes Coulter: "A young, healthy person has a choice of buying artificially expensive health insurance that, by law, covers a smorgasbord of medical services of no interest to him ... or going uninsured. People who aren't planning on giving birth to a slew of children with restless leg syndrome in the near future forgo insurance and then politicians tell us we have a national emergency because some people don't have health insurance.
"The whole idea of insurance is to insure against catastrophes: You buy insurance in case your house burns down not so you can force other people in your plan to pay for your maid. You buy car insurance in case you're in a major accident, not so everyone in the plan shares the cost of gas."
Birth certificate issue remains uppermost in readers concerns
The issue of Barack Obama's eligibility to be president of the United States remains uppermost among the concerns for WND readers, because for the second week in a row, WND's White House Eligibility Postcards are the top product among best-sellers at the WND Superstore.
Obama has reported he was born Aug. 4, 1961, in an unnamed Honolulu hospital. But there's been no birth certificate released, no verification, no doctor's testimony, no witness confirmation of his statement. And even a letter purporting to be from Obama claiming Kapi'olani hospital as his birthplace has been refused confirmation by the White House.
