Health care = 9/11

Watch Neil Cavuto throw his back out reaching too far to connect health care and terrorism.

The train of logic:

Nationalized health care => more doctors => hiring doctors from outside the US => some of the doctors are Muslim => terrorists are Muslim => nationalized health care is a breeding ground for terrorists

I think I can do this in fewer steps:

Cavuto hates big government => nationalized health care means bigger government => Cavuto will attack big government with bad slippery slope arguments and no evidence.

I smell Rove. If I hear this argument from anyone else on Fox News/Congress/Senate, my Turd Blossom suspicion will be confirmed.
