Sen. Mary Landrieu (Louisiana Purchaser)

"It's embarrassing to me to go to places like France and Spain...and their workers all manage to have health insurance that can't be taken away."

This from the U.S. senator who was going to vote against ObamaCare (allegedly) until Harry Reid threw in a $300,000,000 bribe for her home state (not allegedly, but actually).

Now, on to France and Spain.

I can't be the only one who prays he doesn't get severely injured or sick while in France or Spain*...They may have first world doctors, but the level of care isn't what it is in the U.S.  The U.S. has by far more and better doctors (by any measurement), and it also has by far more and better medical technology (by any measurement).**

Also, "workers" may have "health insurance that can't be taken away," but both countries have severe problems with "workers" - specifically the lack of people working...France has a chronic unemployment rate of over 10% (a level just barely touched on at the worst point of the Great Recession), and Spain has a 26% unemployment rate (a level which would lead to revolution in the U.S.).  I can't be the only one who would rather have a reasonable chance at attaining a job than a guarantee of health insurance.

Maybe I'm wrong, though.  Maybe Americans are becoming so pathetic and apathetic that they'd rather have guaranteed rights to health insurance (with actual care below American standards - often far below) than have jobs...It's beyond my comprehension, but it's not impossible.  If it is true, though, it goes a long way towards explaining how Barack Obama was elected and re-elected.

* - I'm never going to France or Spain, so I don't have to worry about it.
** - The comments about American doctors and technology are undeniable.  But Liberals will spin it as more people in other countries can obtain care in other countries (though with a less effective outcome) than Americans because many in the U.S. don't have insurance...Do any Internet search and you'll see when it comes to quality the U.S. is always at the top - and if the article is written by a Liberal they will make sure to add on comments about how many Americans supposedly don't have access to such care.  Care which isn't even available in the countries they want the U.S. system to emulate.
