    So, does our country need government controlled health care?

    Based on the information provided in the Speech To Congress on 09//09/09 by President Obama, do you feel this is a workable plan?

    Patient confidentiality is very likely to be compromised. No.

    Government run healthcare no matter what the plan adds bureaucracy, inflated costs, inefficiencies, is at the discretion of future administrations and reduces freedoms.   Ask yourself what happened to social security funds?   Ask yourself, how prepared we were to go to war with IRAQ?   Find out why our miltiary heros who were contaminated with chemicals and are now sick were not treated adequately until now.  This is several years after the fact.  Shouldn't they have been treated earlier.  What will happen when funding runs out?  will the government decide to not fund older peoples care?  Will the government dictate what is best?  Will they decide only one child is accepted?   Anything is possible with Government run healthcare.

    NO, NO NO!  We do not need government-controlled anything! More government is something the voters do not want, or need!  The government thought prohibition was a good idea about 91 years ago and look how that panned out!
