What Has He Done To Us?

Empty Chair Day Somewhere in America

Paradoxical Quote of The Day

  “Fathom the hypocrisy of a government that requires every citizen to  prove they are insured… but not everyone must prove they are a  citizen.”

Now add this, “Many of those who refuse, or are unable, to prove they  are citizens will receive free insurance paid for by those who are forced to buy insurance because they are citizens.”

  What has he done to us?

Better yet, why do we put up with this crap?

  1. And what about me and others in my position? I work as hard as almost anyone and would be more than happy to pay for my own health insurance. Except, through no fault of my own I am uninsurable. So if I lose my job for any length of time, I am completely screwed.

    I understand why you are opposed to the Health Care Reforms, and your arguments have merit. But lets break it down to simple American values. How could we even consider calling America a great nation if half of the population would rather save a few bucks than prevent suffering and save lives (yes, even the lives of illegals)? What good are our techonlogical and medical advancements if we make them unattainable to the people who need them?

    Your quote does not demonstrate hypocricy. I view it as a powerful statement that in America we value human rights above all else – no matter who you are.

    • Matt: Thanks for your input. We need more debate on all of it. Yesterday, I debated with my daughter who is a Phd level nurse. She argues that our National Health care law with its death panel mandate only legitimizes the actual practice being used by our medical profession today. Her main argument goes toward older patients who cost the system on average one million dollars for their last year of life. I am not against that, but having watched several people go through the dying process I saw them cling to life with every molecule in their body. What I am against is a government telling me what I can or can’t do with my body. That, and the cost of doing that, is totally out of line with what we can afford as a country. National Health care is going broke in every country where it exists, or the people are paying through the nose to make a lousy system break even. Countries with better outcomes than ours are most likely dying at a natural pace without the help of modern medicine.

  2. Not free insurance, perhaps subsidized insurance for the poor.

    • The poor already have free government insurance called Medicaid. Perhaps we should trade that in for government subsidy to purchase insurance of their own just as you suggest. ANything but the monster we are heading toward.Thanks for commenting.
