A Cartoon Conundrum

Today's Chuck Asay cartoon -- yes, I know, I haven't picked on him in a while, and it felt like I was missing something -- seems to be attempting to make a point that Evil Future Socialized Medicine will deny health care to sick people.

That would, indeed, be sad. But would it be sadder than Evil Contemporary For-Profit Medicine denying health care to very similar people for the same reasons?

And does anyone honestly think that health care providers won't have access to the records of their patients? Does anyone want health care providers not to know the details of their patients' health?

(As is far too often true, the real point of the cartoon seems to be to throw in an abortion reference as red meat for "the base." If Asay had found a way to indicate the nasty receptionist was gay-married, the wingers would love it even more.)
