Give it, Take It Back Policy

My Flag Flies Everyday

BO and his frenzy of followers are hyped on the issue of “universal health care.” Well folks, I’m here to tell you that I’m a recipient of Uncle’s current health care plan. It’s called “Medicare.” I am the first to agree that it is better than nothing. When it was first instituted, my parents finally started going to a doctor. They were retired by that time. They led healthy lives, and lived long. A trip to the doctor meant you had a major problem, like the time dad pissed himself while shoveling snow at age seventy-eight. That incident finally convinced him it was time to get help. It turned out that in addition to an enlarged prostate, he had prostate cancer too. In spite of the surgery, and years of incontinence afterward, he lived to ninety two. He used Medicare about twenty times for follow up appointments.

Time marched on, and the cost of Medicare kept rising. The possibility of Medicare going bankrupt became a reality(have we heard that recently?) Our fine political representatives fixed it by raising the tax taken from our paychecks. Simple? At the same time, they fixed Social Security by raising the tax taken to pay for that. Still simple? Then the genii decided they were giving retired people too much, and decided to tax Social Security. What the “government giveth, the government taketh.”  Did I mention this “give it, take it back” policy was enacted under a Democratic president?  I digress.

The point I’m trying to make is that a big government universal health care plan will ultimately fail. (Case in point, the Fair Housing Act ultimately failed and led to the need for the bail out.) Uncle Sam can’t even pay for the health care plan he has. How in the world will BO pay for a bigger one? First, he will take from the rich, then, it will get more expensive, and guess what? You’re absolutely right. You will be asked to bend over and grab your ankles to get it shoved up your a__. The only ones to benefit will be the people hired to administer the program. Most likely, it will be a division of ACORN. Our health care dollar will be consummed by the administrators. It will be their job to curb costs by challenging every thing you go to the doctor for. Who will curb them? The pennies remaining from that dollar, will go to a physician.

If you you think I am being critical of Medicare, ask your  physician how he likes it. Many doctors don’t accept Medicare because Uncle doesn’t pay well. To compensate, Uncle has a stupid rule that he will pay for each visit.  To make some money, my doctor invents reasons for me to come see him. I take a blood test every three months, he could easily have his nurse call me with the results, instead he tells me to make a follow up visit to get the results. His rationalle, he has to review the results with me. The real reason, he bills Medicare for another visit.

Where will the incentive come for young people to become doctors? It is hard enough now to find a doctor that speaks without such a heavy accent that I can understand him. What incentive  will a student have to study for ten years, certainly not from a big government health care plan. Ask a Canadian what he thinks of his health care. First, he will brag about how all his medical needs are paid by the government. A few sentences later he will complain about the three months it takes to get an appointment, and the two year waiting list for surgery.

This is one of the issues BO keeps wishing John McCain will talk to you about. It is only his way to divert attention from his radical influences.

Get real folks, don’t buy into the idea that Uncle can do it for you better than you can do it on your own.

  1. What Can we common Poeple do about the Bailout? Nothing.. we just have to wait and see if the company comes up and develops new cars and prototypes to please the americal consumer

  2. The United States government can not run a company, much less a insurance or medicare plan so we both agree on that and also we do not need a BIGGER government. Check this out when you get time!
