The New Face of American Health Care, # 3

National health care for everyone sounds good on the surface; especially with Baby boomers headed for retirement to live on fixed incomes. You get sick, go to the doctor, you get better and everybody happy.

Where does that money come from, who will support the beast; Americans earning over $250,000? Well, how many of them are out there, plenty for sure, but enough to support a bottomless pit? Will they keep lowering the threshold until everyone gets taxed; likely?

Do we really want to punish people who succeed in America, while encouraging others to ride the wave to shore? Why has it become evil to be wealthy? Hard work and entrepreneurship built this country and all have benefited from it, why is it now considered evil capitalism.

Things have gotten way out of hand, and changes are needed, but to throw away our system, turn our back on this great republic is wrong and dangerous. Many times in history, our economy has been seized by special interests. Great wealth created by those in power and prosperity abound; but the bubbles always burst. Each time this occurred, we rose from the rubble and moved onward.

We are poised to build our nation future, look to its beginnings, to the fabric that made it strong and viable for 233 years. Nationalization is not the answer; we must look hard at what got us here and fix that first. Hardship and sacrifice will be needed, but the last time this occurred during the depression, we emerged a great nation.

Universal health care is another grab toward the nationalization of our country. If you think big business is bad, wait until there is no competition at all and see how it gets.

Lets fix what is wrong with our country without becoming the United Socialists States of America!

Say NO to National Health Care; lets fix our country the American way, united!

  • You ask some good questions, but don't give a lot of suggestions to fix what you admit "has gotten way out of hand". One question you didn't ask was "who is paying for it now?", and the answer is, of course, everyone who works for a wage. You bet a nationalized health insurance scheme would mean higher taxes, it's a no-brainer, but that in itself is pretty meaningless without further information. What I would want to know is "what's the bottom line?". You claim More..

      I posted a question not a solution; so far no one on LL has come up with a viable answer, just opinions.

      Thats OK with me, this is far more complex than I could solve; so an opinion based on my life experiences is the best I can offer.

      What I can do is post questions and wait for replies. Its been an enlightening experience; people all over the globe chimed in opinions, insults, ridicule and praise. The overall consensus being: the system is broke and needs fixing, with no conc More..

  • Thanks for your answer as well, I wasn't expecting one. I agree with your conclusions, mostly, but I would urge you to take the public, government-sponsored option seriously. All I can see against it is the fact that it is "socialized medicine", and would cost a lot of jobs in the insurance industry. But as for the bottom line, it's plain to me that there could be huge savings. I have several friends and relations who work in the industry, and I wouldn't want them to be jobless, bu More..
