It may be cheaper to remain sick tha get treated, and die than to live, but most people won't choose the cheaper option. What happens when Health care is handed over to the Government and bureaucrats? A new book, "The Truth About ObamaCare" by Sally Pipes of the Pacific Research Institute tells the real facts.

They give birth to their babies in hallways, bathrooms and even elevators. America has a high infant mortality rate only because it counts all the babies. United states has the best medical system in the world, writes Thomas Sowell in Jewish World Review.
