"Public Option" will end up "Single Payer" as They've Planned
Is this health care reform or the path to government run health care? I believe that it is the latter, and for good reason. The good reason is that I heard it come right out of their mouths in this video. Only a fool would not see what they have planned for our health care system. Is that what the American people want? Do they want their health care system run by government bureaucrats who know nothing about health care and who care nothing about your health?
And I'm really getting tired of Obama's continual straw man argument on this issue where he says that his opponents are in "denial that reform needs to happen". That is not true, and in fact we have a lot of good ideas that the Democrats will never let through congress because they involve private enterprise and freedom, which I've lately come to the conclusion that they are against.
Obama speaks half truths when he says that if you already have health care insurance that you like, and a doctor that you like, that you will not have to change a thing. The fact of the matter is that you, and or your employer will be taxed to pay for the health care of all those who choose to join this "public option". So why would you and or your employer continue to pay for your own health insurance, and through taxes the health care of tens of millions of people, when you have the option of joining the "public option" yourself? The fact is that you will join it; you will be coerced to though excess taxes.
Also, if the government plan is by law able to force doctors and hospitals to do certain procedures etc. at a government set price, then that is it, private insurance will not be able to compete with that and so they will be run out of business. I believe that this will be the case; I believe that it is their plan.
All of this is nothing new. Did you know that you do not have to by law apply for a social security number? But the catch is of course that you need one to work, therefore you have to get one. Now let's say that you want to wait until your children grow up so that they can decide for themselves if they want a social security number. Well yes, that is your right, the government will not stand in your way; you are free to do as you wish, but you will have to give them up as dependence on you income tax return, that is, it will cost you. The fix is in.
