What Is This “Universal Health Care” ?
The main issue all the candidates are spouting is “health care”. The main issue the media claims is everyone’s priority when choosing a candidate is “health care”. The media also reports that those making more than $75,000/year are choosing (note the key word here is choosing) NOT to buy health insurance because they find it too expensive. OK, I can buy that, to a degree. Someone making $75k/year is in a job where their employer probably offers health insurance. So what is their excuse then?
Setting that aside, lets get back to this “universal health care” that all the candidates are supporting in one fashion or another. Talk to people, real people, from Britain and Canada and ask them how well “universal health care” works for them.
Here’s an article you should read before basing your election choice on one issue only:
BEWARE: “FREE” MEDICAL CARE WILL KILL YOU – ON PURPOSE!
The great debate on medical care is taking place in this year’s presidential campaign. Much is made of the fact that care costs too much and that government isn’t doing enough to provide coverage for the poor and elderly. Be careful – you may regret ever-encouraging government – controlled medicine.
Case in point, this report from England (Don’t treat the old and unhealthy, say doctors) where full government health care is “provided” free to every citizen. For years, free market advocates like myself have had to endure lectures from our little socialist friends about the glories of “free” health care. We keep pointing out that nothing is free – and now the folks in England may be paying for that health care with their lives – literally.
When government gets overburdened and revenues don’t keep up with all the grand plans of a horde of politicians, someone has to feel the pain. Today, England’s treasury can’t keep up with the massive costs of health care. So the bureaucrats, such fiscally responsible folks – just serving the people, you understand – have decided the best way to cut costs is to stop providing health care to those who are too old or those who leave “unhealthy lives.” Of course, government gets to decide who they are.
It’s important to note here that the reason health care cost so much today is because government got involved in health care in the first place. It mostly started for the United States back in the 1960’s under Lyndon Johnson’s “compassionate” policy of universal health care. From that time a visit to the doctor went from costing a few dollars to hundreds, affordable only through insurance payments. It’s no coincidence that the quality of health care also started to go down as the costs soared. Socialized medicine does not work. Period.
The force driving this policy today is a sinister policy called Sustainable Development as outlined in a UN document called Agenda 21. Sustainable Development is a horrific mix of socialism and fascism that is now taking over the world. Itâ€™s unhealthy for the economy, your private property and your health as Sustainable Medicine begins to take over your local hospital and family doctor. (SUSTAINABLE MEDICINE + SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT = DUTY TO DIE) Decisions on quality care will not be made by them but by mindless, faceless government agencies who feel not an ounce of passion for your elderly mom or your ailing son.
Welcome to the new utopia of Sustainable Development now being brought to you by the U.S. Congress, the President, your state legislature and your city council. Remember their compassionate promises to make your life better under Sustainable Development as you watch your loved ones die because they have been refused health care.
By the way, this wouldn’t happen in a free market where you would make the decisions about your health care. But of course, that’s not politically correct.
