Pay For Health Care? I’d Sooner Die.

The political argument about women’s health is backwards. Libs argue that Republicans will kill women by repealing the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Yet, when real live doctors begin to read the bill to find how it will affect them the opposite is true. Most people who want the health care act are those who can’t afford insurance, or have a pre-existing condition to make them uninsurable.

I heard a commentator give an analogy last week which is quite accurate but defies human logic. Most of us have car insurance and house insurance. We pay for it. When it comes to health insurance, we want someone else to pay for it. Historically this has been an employer. How many times have you heard someone say they had a car accident, but did not report it to the insurance company because they didn’t want a premium increase? The same kind of logic reigns over homeowners insurance too. When it comes to health insurance we expect someone else to pay, and we use the heck out of it. Why? If we paid for health care insurance ourselves, maybe we wouldn’t be so sick.

Dr. Jill Vecchio speaks in the video about her analysis of the PPACA and the effect it will have on how she will have to treat patients. She makes valid arguments about the law. Watch it and discern for yourself if the Republicans are responsible for killing women, or will the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act kill more?

Never Mind

Government"s Idea for HealthcareIn days long past on Saturday Night Live,  Gilda Radner played the part of a ranting TV news reporter. Her co-anchors watched  her in puzzlement.  At the end of  her piece, the anchors would tell her the facts were  all wrong.  She would look at them sheepishly, and  say “never mind.”

That is exactly the way I feel about my last post  “They Just Don’t Get It.” I went off on a rant, and in my fever got lost in the argument. I made a huge mistake in math. My argument was that the government could buy health insurance for the forty seven million uninsured from the private sector for forty seven million dollars. Great deal, right?  Wrong. I was off by a factor of ten thousand. The cost wouldn’t be forty seven million it would be more like four hundred and seventy billion. A big difference.

 NEVER MIND.

I have edited the piece by cutting the erroneous math. The rest of the argument holds.

I apologize for selling the same snake oil as the the liberals. I will be more careful in the future.
