The Health Police Are Here (And You Thought There Wasn’t A Public Option)

On the day that Obama announced $400 million in aid to Gaza, he also signed an executive order under cover of the freedom flotilla dustup and those worthless UN sanctions against Iran (June 10,2010).  (H/T to reader "G" for sending this article my way.)
