I listened to part of Barak Obama’s town hall meeting held in
He makes the insurance companies an enemy to us: to cover the weakness of his health care plan. It is their fault we have a crises – “let’s get ‘em”. Yet private insurance could be part of the solution and is probably the best solution. He effectively blocks off a source of ideas and solutions to create an enemy. That is self preservation not leadership.
He says – “You’re either for reform or anti-reform”. I say NO. I’m for reform but not his flavor of reform that allows for: the government to have access to our personal banking information to “collect payments”, rationed medical care, slowly eliminating private insurance companies, creating a national database of personal medical information, paying for illegal alien’s medical coverage, and supporting taxpayer funded abortions, etc. Yes we need to make improvements but so use the free enterprise system that reduces costs and improves service. There are many great ideas out there that are not being circulated or talked about because the Obama plan has sucked all the air out of the room. I want plans not government based like Medicare which is burdened with incredible amounts of debt and corruption.
Let’s start with tort reform and remove the obscene amounts of wasted money paid to trial lawyers who are not part of the solution. The government is not the appropriate administer of a health care plan – we can do better.
The bottom line fear is “who is going to pay” for the services. How do you add 47 million patients to the system and then claim that a government-run health care solution will decrease the debt. It is a blatant LIE and people still believe him. The
