Another story from the Eagle! Wow, Mr. Magel and Mr Riviere are really trying to market this program and the Eagle is very good at keeping the story alive.
"The question is not binding, but will go a long way in determining what the City Council might do, Magel said."
That statement from Mr. Magel should scare the majority of residents on this island! Folks, this is just another means to tax all property owners for a private facility operation that is the responsibility of the health industry to serve its patients/customers. Note: from the health industries' perspective, anytime it can get the public to fund a partial operation is another victory for privately operated healthcare industry (both profit and non-profit) to dupe the folks to pay for something that they may not use as well as now if you use it. Interesting, if this dumb "special interest" referendum passes, we would pay NOT only once but potentially twice: once through private health insurance premiums, deductible allowances and co-pays and again, through a special tax based on your property value.
Wow! this sounds like the dumbest proposal to date. God help us to choose better representation. So pay attention in November, because this Chairman and his assistant, Mr. Reviere are truly lacking foresight if this is what they consider a solution to healthcare on this island.
If this non-binding referendum passes it will bind residents to a special tax.
Augggggggggggggggggggggggggggggh! God help us all.
