Using an Assault Weapon on a Mosquito: BHO and Our Health Care System

Original post made by Perspective, Midtown, on Mar 7, 2009

Please remember that BHO and the Dems are trying to put in a place a European/Canadian style Universal Health Care system which destroys choice,timeliness and pharmaceutical/device advances in medicine...for 8 million people uninsured because health insurance is too expensive.

Why do I say that? See the following De-Mything Article by Cato Institute ( hardly a right-wing non-thinker)

"Ms. Pipes next rebuts the claim that 46 million people lack health care. She ably deconstructs this oft-cited number: Lack of health insurance does not mean lack of health care, and the vast majority of the uninsured are either middle- to high-income people who choose not to buy insurance, noncitizens or people eligible for other government medical programs. This does not mean there are no hardship cases, as Ms. Pipes acknowledges, but the number of chronically uninsured who most need assistance is about 8 million, a much more manageable number."

So, what is better than destroying the best Health Care System in the world in order to bring health insurance to the 8 million who actually can't afford it? Allow us to buy catastrophic health insurance ACROSS STATE LINES, so that we buy the Jetta-style health insurance we want, not the Lexus style health insurance required by our State.

In addition, it is a flat out lie repeatedly stated by Obama, and that is there is a medical bankruptcy every 30 seconds. First, even using the study he believes he is quoting, it would be half that rate, but even more importantly, the study associates anyone with more than $1,000 in medical bills who has filed bankruptcy as a "medical bankruptcy". This would be like saying anyone who owes more than $1,000 on their car at the time of filing is an "auto bankruptcy" and using it as grounds to have Universal Cars for every USA citizen.

Please seriously think about this, decide if you want the long lines, the lack of choice, and the higher cancer and heart death rate of socialized medicine nations...and write our President and our Congress.

I prefer keeping my health care options in my choice.
