Consumer Reports has tossed away political neutrality to side with Democrats in support of a government run health care system that will be costly to consumers.

.

“[W]e are doing something that we’ve never done before. For the first time ever, Consumers Union is weighing in with a TV ad that calls on lawmakers to find a solution for health reform,” said Jim Guest, publisher of Consumer Reports.

The Consumers Union insists that the Democrat proposals will provide high quality care at lower costs, yet the exact opposite is true.  If enacted, the Democrats’ proposals would exacerbate a system in which consumers have no stake in the cost of medical services and products.

Consumer Report fails to present the downside of the Democrats’ health care proposals

Consumer Report fails to present the downside of the Democrats’ health care proposals to help consumers to distinguish between truth and propaganda.

The Democrat proposals would create bureaucracies to monitor people’s lives, inject government into people’s private lives via centralized medical records, mandate health care that would tax people for failing to engage in economic activity, and involve the IRS in enforcing the mandate through receipt of individual health insurance information.

By aligning itself with proposals “laden with taxes, penalties, punishments, government bureaucracy and out-of-control spending,” Consumer Reports has diminished its status and destroyed a once noteworthy reputation for providing politically neutral, accurate information.
