    ObamaCare used for robbery

    Another reason to oppose it.

    Police: Health care reform used as NY crime ploy

    NEW YORK Police say attackers used health care reform as a ruse to approach their victims and then shot two and pistol-whipped another in a Long Island home.

    Suffolk County police said Saturday that a 26-year-old woman was arrested on attempted murder and burglary charges in the attack Friday in Huntington. Two men were arrested on the same charges earlier. Information on the suspects' arraignments wasn't immediately available Saturday night.

    Police say the three told the home's residents they were selling insurance, referring to President Barack Obama's push to overhaul America's health care system. Police say the suspects then forced their way in, demanded money and attacked the victims.

    The victims' conditions weren't immediately available.

    The excuses used by felons aren't a reason that a political program should be supported or opposed, IMO. The programs can do that all on their own.

    The felons would have some other ruse they used, if not that one. That's for sure. They were sure selling something, though. Didn't have to be insurance.

    I hope the prison sentence is set, then not evaporated due to a short-sighted judge. The charge is about right: attempted murder, robbery.

    I always tell my wife, "Never open the door for anyone you dont know". We have a small window next to the door to look out and verify. We can speak through the window at them. The window is not big enough for anyone to crawl through or grabbed you through.

    I dont understand why people will open their homes to somebody they dont know unless proper official identification is produced.
