Edwards The Nag

Published by at 10:53 am under 2008 Elections,All General Discussions

John Edwards is epitome of the liberal nanny state. The guy is a professional nosey-body nag. His latest policy idea shows this better than anything else do date:

Democratic presidential hopeful John Edwards said on Sunday that his universal health care proposal would require that Americans go to the doctor for preventive care.

“It requires that everybody be covered. It requires that everybody get preventive care,” he told a crowd sitting in lawn chairs in front of the Cedar County Courthouse. “If you are going to be in the system, you can’t choose not to go to the doctor for 20 years. You have to go in and be checked and make sure that you are OK.”

And what is he planning to do if people do not get annual check ups? Is going to arrest them? There’s a plan – instead of chasing down terrorists let’s chase down people who are healthy enough to skip an annual check up here and there. Edwards is a blithering idiot.

    Now does anyone want to exercise their brain cells for a minute and consider the possibility that if 300 million or so residents of this country are required to do for example biannual physicals just how many doctors we would have to have to make that a reality?

    Care to guess how much it would cost for all the normal tests done by doctors screening for all sorts of physical ills?

    Buy stock in testing labs if this guy gets his way.

  2. Criminalizing Health Care…again…

    Why is every time the Dems come forward with their version of great health care, it always involves punitive actions alongside the proposed healing?…

    So the government will track every living human being in the United States and proscribe their health care. I guess the government should know how much fat I eat, alcohol I drink, cigs I smoke, exercise I do, and every thing I might do to make my health not just perfect. What a wonderful world we live in!

    This is silly. There is no way they are going to get everyone to go to a doctor.

    In the UK they have a compulsory National Healthcare System.
    You have to pay into it, about 10% of your salary. It isn’t very good
    and as I will stil be working in the UK for a few more years, I
    buy private health insurance, though there is no rebate for doing that.

    My point is that even though you have to pay national healthcare
    premiums, they are already refusing NHS treatment to people
    who smoke or are overweight.

    From there it is only a small step to refusing treatment to those
    who don’t follow approved rules.

    A good reason to further dump Edwards.
