Agreed. Commie Care is no different than having a leak in a water pipe in the basement, and trying to fix the expensive water bill by having somebody else pay for it.<quoted text>I could buy some of the cheap policies but they cover so little that it's like not having insurance.
I still just do NOT feel good with the government running a bath. Look at the Postal Service, the so called Social Security 'Trust' Fund, Dept of Education, military purchasing, the U.S. Parks Dept, even the IRS has had very wasteful 'conventions' & biases etc etc.
I wish that they would have insurance companies bid to provide lots of coverage of certain sizes, sort of like the MediCare 'A','B' etc plans, for X dollars & then the eventual policy holders (citizens) would be placed into the plan that they choose by some sort of blind lottery & this would allow people to pick a plan that fits their needs & their budgets as best possible.
There's no need for a 2000 page bill trying to reinvent coverage/plans that the insurance companies have refined in over a century.
Sure, there would be need for regulation & over site but no need for 15,000-20,000 or more IRS workers even tho the Ins. companies would need to hire more of course.
While against government healthcare, I say if we are going to have it, fine, but do it the right way. Get rid of Medicare, Medicaid, and have all healthcare paid for by a consumption tax. Everybody uses it and everybody pays. A ten page bill at best.
The problem is that it's actually our government that's responsible for the high price of our healthcare. Instead of addressing the cost which would mean get government out of healthcare, they see the solution as more government.
I forget who said it now, but "Only a fool would expect the person who created the problem to solve it. That's Commie Care in a nutshell.
There are nearly a dozen or so things we can implement that would greatly reduce the cost of our healthcare, and many of them at no cost to the taxpayer or consumer. But this isn't about solving a problem, this is part of a much larger picture.
As we all know, people dependent on government are more likely to vote Democrat. So how do the Democrats stay in power? Simple, create more government dependents. After all, if most people in this country were self-reliant, responsible and victimless, then who would need the Democrat party?
