Donate your used socialized medicine

May I suggest a temporary solution to the logjam in health care reform created by those who fear "socialized medicine"? Such folks could voluntarily return any Medicare, Medicaid, or veterans' payments to the federal government, making more money available for the nearly 50 million people who don't have insurance.

Washington Times:
Dr. Hill asked Mr. Scott why he was going to vote for a health care plan similar to that implemented in Massachusetts "that is shown not to work" and if he supported a government-provided health care insurance option.
The congressman replied by accusing the doctor of "hijacking" his event.
"I'm listening to my constituents, OK?" Scott said, "These are people who live in the 13th Congressional district, who vote in this district. Thatís who Iíve got to respond to Ö So what youíve got to understand, those of you who are here, who have taken and came and hijacked this event we dealing with here, this is not a health care event."
"You chose to come and to do it on your own," he yelled. "Not a single one of you had the decency to call my office and set up for a meeting." He went on, in a threatening voice, "You want a meeting with me on health care, I'll give it to you!"
Mr. Scott's public tirade against the doctor was filmed by WXIA-TV News, a local NBC affiliate that confirmed the doctor lived in the congressman's district in a follow-up interview.
The doctor told WXIA he wasn't working for any outside causes and had called Mr. Scott's office repeatedly, asking to speak with the congressman.
"I did not go to a meeting to create any problems, I went to the meeting to literally ask a question that I thought was very, very important for my patients," he said.
It's nice to hear the story of one person who attended a town meeting in order to better understand the debate over health policy.

Love it. Ditto heads. Sheople. Let's not forget the 'red scar' tactics. Leaving our health care to private companies with their eyes on profits hasn't worked since Richard Nixon introduced it, or Ronald Reagan's warning in the 'red scare' speech, but thanks to George W, it's spun out of control. Take a serious look at who is denied benefits, then look at who gets the bonuses for denying them. Someone please explain that 'morality' to me? Is it that attaining wealth is acceptable at any cost? to anyone? Someone please also explain how 'socialism' is scarier than facism?(corporate control of government, backed by military.... doesn't that define our recent history?) Our neediest go without while the least needy get more.
Oh, let's not forget corporate welfare. How is that not a 'social' program? All depends on who/what it's supporting??? Hello! When corporations are not supporting who it's meant to protect, something has to change. Our government belongs to us as long as it's taking our money. It MUST come back to us in some form, that benefits it's citizens.
corporate welfare, good that's funny!!!what do you call propping up the dump called pittsfield for the last 30 years?
