Is Government Health Care Really Insurance?
No matter how you run the numbers there will be many who will not be covered by the national health care plan. The numbers not only defy reason but the cost will be even greater. One thing is for certain and that is nothing (repeat nothing) is free. When President Obama tells you health care cost will not affect the deficit - can you really believe him?
Let's not forget - Medicaid has turned away more people than all the major private health providers combined. Over a half a million. If you think government won't ration your health care, you are sadly mistaken. So when President Obama tells you no one will be turned down, you better ask the right question and demand the right answer.
Health care coverage is not about you unless you believe in the tooth fairy. But then again many do. Up to 50% of America's population receive some kind of government assistance despite the fact over 45% don't deserve it. No doubt government has created a demanding and unproductive monster.
The SEIU and other unions want Health care. The SEIU alone has budgeted 10 million dollars for promotion and politicians. This money comes from union dues paid by workers. The unions are hurting and have been losing traction. Promised pensions are in deep trouble and someone has to pay to make good on promises that should have never been made. If these pensions go bust so will the unions.
Big business sees a bigger bottom line with government run health care. Thousands of dollars can be saved on just one employee with big government running the show. Corporations will have millions to throw at politicians to sway legislation their way.
Politicians will gain the most. With union and corporation money flowing in like Niagara Falls, they take comfort in knowing their jobs are secure. They will live another day stamping out legislation that will give them the power of kings and queens.
And what about illegal immigrants?
La Raza is pushing hard to to have illegals covered by free health care. The more illegals crossing the border the greater the clout La Raza has for its agenda. An agenda that isn't for the equality of all. Do you think the left really believes everyone is the same?
The unions are big on illegals. Their numbers dwindling and they need to beef up their member ship. Illegals can supply cold hard cash into the union coffers.
Big business loves illegals because they are cheap labor. Business claims no one else will do the job. What they don't tell you is that Americans refuse to lower their standard of living to the point where they can not care for themselves respectably.
Isn't is curious that no one wants to teach these illegals English. Not Business, not the unions, not La Raza, and certainly not the politicians. That would be devastating. What, give another Human Being the option to communicate effectively and to negotiate? You have to hand it to special interest - they are shrewd. When you can't communicate you don't know any better and can't defend yourself. Now that's real control! Where are all those to cry racism on this one? Nowhere to be found.
And what about the politicians and celebrities? The likes of Whoopi Goldberg, Bill Maher, Al Gore, the Clintons, Oprah Wingrey, David Letterman, and many other high profile names who seem to care so much for you. They all want health care. Of course they do! They don't dive damn. They have plenty of money to get all the care they need. Do you?
Health care is about the left and special interest and the proof is living right before your eyes. Just take a look at China, North Korea, Russia under Communism, or any socialist country. Capitalism still rules but it is only for the special people.
If you think free government health care is about you or those who really need it then you do live in a different reality. But your reality is in the process of taking a turn for those that think they are special and better than you. Guess what? You're not one of them, are you?
Addendum: SInce the introduction of the Baucus bill the unions are now against the plan. The legislation will tax unions and business up to 40% (additional taxes) for providing a better health care plan the government. In addition, the cost will be deferred to other legislation as an accounting trick in an attempt to keep the cost deficet neutral. In other words costs will be recorded in other ledgers.
