Nineteen Eighty-Four

Democrats threaten companies hit hard by health care bill
Suspecting thought crime was being perpetrated, a powerful Party official issued this summons:
Rep. Henry Waxman, chairman of the House Committee on Energy and Commerce, has summoned some of the nation's top executives to Capitol Hill to defend their assessment that the new national health care reform law will cost their companies hundreds of millions of dollars in health insurance expenses. Waxman is also demanding that the executives give lawmakers internal company documents related to health care finances -- a move one committee Republicans describes as "an attempt to intimidate and silence opponents of the Democrats' flawed health care reform legislation."

This government is beginning to look more and more like the all-powerful state of our worst nightmares. 1984 is as good as anyway to put it.
