"I will not punish any woman in America" with nationalized health care

So said Congressman Mike Rogers (R-MI) as his opening statement on Health Care reform in the House Intelligence Committee. This YouTube video of his statement has already received 1,072,632 hits as Americans listen to his common sense analysis of the 1,017-page socialized health care monstrosity.

Rep. Rogers points out that the survival rate for numerous cancers is reduced under this bill: skin cancer, breast cancer, kidney cancer, ovarian cancer, bladder, prostate cancer, leukemia ... "and the list goes on and on and on," he said. He added that what the U.S. government was telling Americans was, " 'We give up ... it's too hard ... the government has to do it.' That's insulting. I will not punish any woman in America with this kind of system."

Expanding beyond health care, Rep. Rogers notes that the government is now telling the American people what kind of car to drive, what kind of light bulb to use, what kind of window replacements are allowed for their homes, and now the government is going to pick your doctor and health plan for the future.

"We must and can do better," he concluded.
