Well we have another economic nightmare on the horizon. After a stimulus bill which is adding $12 trillion dollars to the national debt and is doing nothing at all to stimulate the economy, we now have socialized health care on the horizon. Why? In economic terms it will fail miserably. The cost of trying to insure everyone in a massive Medicare type program will fail economically. It will also fail in providing health care for individuals. It will ration health care as doctors leave their profession due to lack of payments, insurance companies will opt out of the system due to profitability, and it will also ration health care especially to elderly people. Senior citizens who use most of our health care will definitely be rationed. If an old person has cancer I am sure treatment will be denied them as to preserve that treatment for someone who is younger. Hip and knee replacements for the elderly will be a thing of the past due to the high costs involved. Prescription drugs will limited for older folks also due to economic costs. In my economic opinion, this program will help to increase our national debt to an unsustainable level, in effect further bankrupting our economy and country while helping to ruin our health care system as we know it today. In all aspects it is a poorly thought and ill conceived socialistic dream which will fail upon implementation. I am also confident that those with the correct ties to the government will get better health care than those stuck in this type of system.
Taxpayers should be expressing their disgust with yet another example of a rushed, ill gotten, poorly designed and costly waste of their hard earned tax monies. Just say no to this type of change which has no hope for our economy, socialized health care.
