I agree w/ Razzle. You have to think the program all the way thru. Bottom line: The government should not be in charge of your health or your health care
. Too much government control.
How will they manage this? (while so far, the gov't has proven, over and over, that they cannot manage a business) Who is going to control this? How are they going to control it? Who is going to decide who deserves treatment and who doesn't? Who is going to decide that a person can get by 'with pain medication instead of surgery' -- and that came out of the President's mouth.
Who do you think is gonna want to go hundreds of thousands of dollars into debt to get their MD if the gov't is going to control their earnings? What MDs do you think will work 12 hour days if the gov't is controlling their earnings?
WHO wants the government to control our Doctors??
I cannot afford to pay for others' insurance and health care and it is wrong for the government to force me to. I have to work 2 jobs to support myself and my dogs. I'm not going to do it so I can pay for healthcare
for others. I am not being selfish and this is not a moral issue. I cannot afford to feed all the hungry in Africa either, and it would be wrong to force me to.
Finally -- as Razz said, 'HMO
mode'. It's bad enough already and will only get worse.
btw, yes, Dejavu, jail sentences and fines have been discussed in this. Absurd! I work for a municipal court. Jail is expensive and they're already over crowded. To seek more control over the public is insane!
