Same old stumbling arguments, especially the uninsured one.

People and these so called experts have to remember that INSURANCE until this day is an optional voluntary form of payment. The patient can chose to use INSURANCE and the health care industry can chose to accept INSURANCE as payment.

The health care industry in particular has voluntarily chose to make INSURANCE THEIR prefered form of payment because they can charge higher rates since a third business party will pay for their desired prices. Patients voluntarily chose to use INSURANCE as their prefered form of payment because a third party is paying for it. They pay a deductable or co pay and that's all they pay attention to on a bill although they should pay attention to the premium bills. Many do, that's why many feel entitled to get every last dime out of that INSURANCE policy.

So why are these so called experts still blaming the uninsured for THEIR insurance bills where the use AND acceptance of INSURANCE is still voluntary. They want more people to play their game so THEY will benefit.

One should read mr. Emanuel's work. He is a proponet of euthanasia and rationing of health care to the more productive in society. He like Margret Sanger believe in Eugenics and control of the world population. He has even said it is ethical to euthanize the young, old , disabled etc.. This is like Hitler taking over the health care of Jews. He is the reason Health care now has a 12 panel unelected rationing board. You aren't hearing much about how if your pacemaker fails now that it will cost you $ 50,000 to get it replaced! It isn't only the old who get them. They often do need replaced. All Obama care is , is yet another attempt at population control. This theory is a socialist theory that brought forced sterilization and euthanasia to Europe. Hitler bought into this as well. Read about what happened in Germany in regard to health care. Only the POLITICAL Elite benefitted from good healthcare .
