Mark Steyn is filling in for Rush today… On the sheer scale of the coming Obamacare disaster if it is not repealed…

Everybody – everybody – has to comply with Commissar Sebelius when it comes to the health care arrangements that you make… It’s one size fits all, from Maine to Hawaii, for everybody… Obamacare is one size fits all health care for 310 million people, from Maine to Hawaii. That’s why it’s going to be a bigger disaster than Canadian government health care, or [the] British National Health Service, of health care in Europe, because nobody has ever attempted government health care on this scale before. And as Commissar Sebelius makes clear, this administration is now going to impose one size fits all for everybody. Doesn’t matter if you receive federal dollars or the rest of it. If you’re an employer, this is what you do, this is what you’ve got to do. And that’s why this election is critical. Because if a stake is not driven through the heart of Obamacare, early next year, as soon as the next president takes office, this thing will never be killed. If it’s not killed in this next presidential term it will never be killed, and we will be stuck with this thing for good, and government health care fundamentally transforms the relationship between the citizen and the state into something closer to junkie and pusher and eventually any competing institutions with a different view of things – whether it’s the Catholic Church or anybody else – just shrivels away, and you just have this one big government monolith determining everything.
