Posted on 05/10/2010 10:30:10 AM PDT by DFG
You know, this has to be one of the strangest stories of the weekend. The New York Times, ever a champion of Obamacare during the recent debates, is reporting (from an April 30 article) on some rather compelling advice for the nation of Greece, which is currently teetering on the precipice of collapse. Its part of a plan negotiated between officials of the European Union, the I.M.F. and the European Central Bank. What might help them? Dont have nationalized health care
or any other industry for that matter.

ROTFLMAO! I can’t wait for these scumbags to get what’s coming........
Don't be silly. As the Obama/Pelosi regime pushed socialized medicine on our country, they assured us that socialism would allow them to provide more and better medical care at a lower cost, and the NYT backed the regime on that claim. The same is true for the "Stimulus" boondoggle, which the NYT also supported. I'm quite confident that these socialist measures beloved by NYT liberals have not gone from being wonderful money-saving ideas to budget busters in the space of a few months or one year.
Now THAT'S going to get people out spending money buying more products! But then again, does Greece make anything for people to buy?
It is what elitists do. They insist on something for themselves while putting down others because they are not “worthy”.
Right now Greece is making a mockery of socialism and that upsets socialists. So naturally the socialists are going to concoct a story about how Greece didn’t do it right and there by do not deserve the glorious social policies.
It’s not a different view it is the same view from a different angle. So they are not being hypocritical.
I brought attention to this on FR last week, wondering when anyone in the mainstream media would mention it.
The IMF is helping to bail out Greece. One of the requirements by the IMF in order for Greece to get the funds is they must ‘privatize’ their gov’t run health care system (among other gov’t supported programs).
How much exposure will the main stream media give that?
It is about time SOMEONE starts disseminating this! LOL!
