The phrase "compassionate conservativism" has become even more of a cruel joke: Bush is "relaxing" the rules that require hospitals to treat emergency patients regardless of their ability to pay. It removes hospitals of any obligation to have specialists on call, or even to have doctors on call at all, and doctors that are on call can still do elective surgery (!) and can be simultaneously on call at two or more hospitals (!), meaning that it's incredibly unlikely that either a specialist or a generalist will be on call when people need them.

And people still plan to vote for this guy?
