View The Promise Of The Obama Health Care Plan!

Published by at 9:39 am under All General Discussions

The liberals in DC want to mimic the socialistic, gubbernment run health care of Europe here in America. The European approach is everyone gets the same crappy health care, no one gets premier. Here in America everyone gets premier, the well to do have to cover the less well off by paying premiums (and must cover the lawyers who make a living off suing doctors, etc). As fate would have it we can now peak into the future at the “hope and change” of Obama-care:

Stafford Hospital in central England was found to have appalling standards of care, putting patients at risk and leading to some dying, according to a report on Tuesday.

Between 400 and 1,200 more people died than would have been expected in a three-year period at theNational Health Service (NHS) hospital, according to an investigation by the Healthcare Commission watchdog.

Receptionists with no medical training were left to to assess patients arriving at the hospital’s accident and emergency department, the report found.

Julie Bailey, whose 86-year-old mother Bella died in the hospital in November 2007, said she and other family members slept in a chair at her bedside for eight weeks because they were so concerned about poor care.

“What we saw in those eight weeks will haunt us for the rest of our lives,” said the 47-year-old. “We saw patients drinking out of flower vases they were so thirsty.

The government’s response: we’re sorry. All better now!

    There’s no health care so expensive as that which is free. If you want to see what socialized health care looks like in the USofA, look no further than the VA hospitals.

    No, here in America more than 50 million people are uninsured. Given that most people get their insurance through employment and unemployment is climbing and will continue to rise during this recession, that number will continue to grow significantly. Those that are insured will continue to see their health care cost increase at a rate well in excess of inflation despite the fact that the health care service themselves are the same of decrease. Meanwhile, businesses, particularly small businesses, are getting killed by the rising cost of their employees costs.

    You have every right to question Obama’s plan, but to pretend like our health care system is hunky-dorey is extraordinarily naive. But I guess when it becomes so obvious that the current system is broken, and you want to advocate for keeping that the status quo, the only argument you got left is to scare people about the alternatives.

    The hard truth is that health care is available in this country for anyone who needs it, albeit in emergency situations primarily. I haven’t seen people dying in the streets as the alarmists would have you believe and don’t see people being held accountable for their poor health choices. Hey stupid—chocolate cake for breakfast sure may taste good but it will lead to diabetes, in case you didn’t know. Let alone the decisions that people make to smoke and drink despite the proven health hazards. That will be the next step that the experiment with communism will have—when the politbureau says you can’t smoke, or drink, of do anything remotely dangerous as that may tax the health system. Stay inside and read a good book, just don’t get a papercut or strain your eyes too much.

    The biggest joke about this debate is that people actually think they will get better health care out of this. Just look at what expansion does in sports—think there are a lot of good pitchers out there—guess again, the same will hold true for doctors. But then that is a boon to the trial lawyers. Hey I think I just completed the idiot loop. Isn’t that Obama fella a lawyer?

    Health care insurance is expensive, so is car insurance, home owners insurance, so are property taxes, state taxes, federal taxes, but none of it matters much if you don’t have a doctor you can count on who cares about your health. The government may be encharge of your health care, but really only cares about how much it costs. Think about that for a minute. Do you really want congress to decide what you need, when you need it and for how long? Have a look at how congress makes decisions. You want them to decide your life and death. There is another solution besides giving the government power over your life. For every body who pays for their own health insurance, give them a tax deduction. If you want the toni plan, it will cost more out of your pocket, if you take the bare bones plan, you may have nothing out of your pocket. For everyone else we have children covered, and medicaid.

    The truth is, if owning medical insurance is a top priority for you and your family, you will beable to afford it.
