Bloggingheads.tv: Is Obamacare a Secret Scheme for Euthanasia?


Is Barack Obama’s health care plan nothing but an underhanded plot to bring European-style euthanasia to the United States? And have the American people caught on to this nefarious scheme and risen up in protest? That’s close to how my Bloggingheads.tv sparring partner James Pinkerton describes what’s been going on. Truly. And we discuss—firmly, but courteously—this view of reality in our latest diavlog face-off, as I offer a strong dissent.

Our trigger—so to speak—is Obama’s speech to Congress. Jim pans it; I praise it. Which is natural. But then the clash comes, as we explore the opposition to Obama’s initiative and whether it’s a serious popular uprising in response to a secret plan of social engineering (Pinkerton’s view) or the anger of right-wing wackos who would would denounce Obama as a socialist copycat even if he managed to feed thousands of people with one loaf of bread (my view). You can see it all below—and much more, including Pinkerton’s frightening encounter with a video camera gone wild:

THANK YOU.

We recently wrapped up the crowdfunding campaign for our ambitious Mother Jones Corruption Project, and it was a smashing success. About 10,364 readers pitched in with donations averaging $45, and together they contributed about $467,374 toward our $500,000 goal.

That's amazing. We still have donations from letters we sent in the mail coming back to us, so we're on pace to hit—if not exceed—that goal. Thank you so much. We'll keep you posted here as the project ramps up, and you can join the hundreds of readers who have alerted us to corruption to dig into.
