I swore I would never do this again. But here goes one more time. Logic people. Think. Because all these anti-government folks insist on using fear to make their points, I'll do the same: If we get rid of all government involvement in health care i.e. OBamaCare, Medicare, Tri-Care, VA Care, Medicaid, only the wealthy will be able afford health care. That means just 1% of us. Costs will never stop rising. Health Insurance policies will always demand higher premiums and deductables. Doctors and Hospitals will soon stop accepting insurance because the insurance companies will always be fighting for every dollar. Results of the negative market influences are inevitable. The electorate of this nation will soon demand a single payer system and the politicians (Republican, Libertarian, Democrats)will inact into law a single payer, mandatory government sponsored and run program. I say, let's do it now and avoid the pain. Close down the health insurance industry today. Will we experience a brain drain of doctors? I doubt it as every modern nation on the planet already is doing this. Where will these doctors go? To the moon with Gingrich? Used to be folks studied to be doctors because they wanted to help people. We are referred to specialists who charge a premium and don't even know us. Soon we will get our primary care providers (family doctors) back. I don't blame the insurance companies for the rising costs because they are doing what business does, which is to pull as much money from your pocket as they can. That's what happens when you let business do something that benefits ALL of us. They monopolize and gauge consummers as much as they can. Hospitals are slaves to the rising cost of equipment utilities and wages. The big pharma companies are the greediest of the bunch. This is the future. There is no other solution and it will eventually occur. So let's do it now.
