So, Sen. Edward M. Kennedy told the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pension Committee that “we have sickness care and not health care. We have too much bureaucracy” (“HHS nominee Sebelius corrects tax returns,” Nation, Wednesday). Simply astounding. Assuming this is not some cruel “April Fool’s” joke, Mr. Kennedy apparently believes that federal health mandates, health-care rationing and governmental control of individual patients’ medical decisions will reduce bureaucracy and that ObamaCare is both effective and efficient.

Next on the horizon from the senator and the Obama administration: “War is peace, freedom is slavery” and - perhaps most important - “ignorance is strength.”
