Couric Rewrites Our History

Katie Couric is an idiot. Can I state that any clearer?

On last night’s CBS Evening News, she proved the level of her intellect, or her dishonesty. She went on yet another campaign for the socialist idea of Universal Health Care. This time she tried to tie the rejection of Universal Health Care to the violation of man’s “inalienable rights” described in the Declaration of Independence. Here is what she said:


“More than 46 million Americans have no health insurance. So when it comes to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness and good health, all men are not created equal.”


First of all, this isn’t a report. It’s an editorial. Katie is using her news chair as a platform to interject her commentary on current events. She is not presenting objective stories. But, a liberal media bias is far beyond denial at this point.

So, let’s get to the heart of the statement.


“When it comes to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness and good health, all men are not created equal.”


Do you see something strange about that statement? Let’s go the original context…The Declaration of Independence.


“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”


Let’s see. What could be different about these two statements? Hmmm…Oh yeah.

“…the pursuit of happiness AND GOOD HEALTH


Apparently, Katie felt that the Founding Fathers just didn’t have enough time to write down all of our inalienable rights. So, she had to make a small addition that’s she sure the Founding Fathers intended to throw in. They must have just forgotten.

Or, maybe those evil Corporations used a special type of White Out and removed it from the original. Certainly the right to Government-provided and regulated Health Care is among our most basic rights!

Umm…no. It is not. It isn't in the Declaration and it isn’t in the Constitution, no matter how much Liberals like Katie wish that it were.

Some of you may be asking yourself, “What about the right to life? Certainly, Universal Health Care is covered under that.”

If you believe that Universal Health Care only refers to life-saving medical care, then you have not been paying attention. If you want to have the debate about life-saving medical treatment, we can. But, that is a debate for another time. My point is that the proponents of Universal Health Care (life-saving or not) view it as a right. It is not. Never has been.

But, those like Mrs. Couric will continue to rewrite our history.
