image for Water contains Free Psychotropic Drugs as part of pilot project proving Universal Health Care Fiscally Feasible -- Shutdown over Fear it can only be opposed on Moral Hazard grounds
Rush, the Religious Right and Companionate Conservatives oppose Universal Health Care…on Moral Hazard grounds?

Los Angeles, California - A pilot project leaked to the media that local water districts were working with pharmaceutical companies on a new, faster and more efficient drug delivery system to handle the anticipated increased needs of retiring Baby Boomers at a fraction of the expense that is currently provided to the elderly and working poor was…wait. What was I talking about?

Oh, yeah...The new pharmaceutical delivery system would work much like the tradition drug store delivery boy, except through the existing local water district infrastructure to distribute much needed medication to elderly people unable to leave their home.

However, some members of Congress, the Senate and the current administration became concerned that the pilot project worked a little too well.

Fearing that parts of application could make Universal Health Care fiscally feasible, they quickly leaked it to the media, pulling the plug.

"As the financial feasibility of Universal Health Care becomes more and more apparent," said a proponent of health care for all. "Those in opposition only have complicated moral hazard grounds left on which to oppose it."

Complicated moral hazard grounds, which slip away as all too easily as the lifeless hand of a loved one in the ER half passed 1:00 a.m. for something a routine checkup would have caught and prevented.
