HEALTH CARE VIDEO you need to see and send around
To those of you who still believe Pelosi Care is a good idea, PLEASE WAKE UP and THINK: Then explain to us how Americans will be able to come up with new life-saving, pain-diminishing innovations when only 4% of those medical innovations are, today, done by the government. The 96% remaining innovations, those new hips and new pills and new diagnostic procedures which save our lives, are AMERICAN. That will have to stop because "for profit" is now a dirty term, according to our president, and "for profit" is the only real inducement for coming up with life saving innovations.
Should we come up with a plan to help Americans who don't have health care? Probably. But ruin the whole system because Nancy Pelosi and Obama want this? What a treacherous disaster.
Thank GOD Mr. Z had good health care till the end. Pity the patients into whom my friend the orthopedic surgeon won't be able to put his favorite, most effective prosthetic hip joint because Medicare isn't paying for it anymore. That's NOW, and Obama Care hasn't even happened yet. Imagine what will happen after this awful, sneaky, and untransparent bill is in effect. They say they'll pay for this bill by cutting waste! Why didn't they do that before this bill? Since when has government done that, anyway? At the DMV? The Post Office? Social Security?! It's CUTTING SERVICES they'll be having to do and it's already started. What was it Medicare was estimated to cost back when they were designing it?...I believe it was NINE TIMES less than it DID?
The CBO's saying this: "The overwhelming majority of the population would remain in private health insurance plans sponsored by employers. Others, mainly low-income people, would be covered through an expanded Medicaid program." Raise your hand if you think any employer will keep a private health insurance plan if the government plan is much lower a premium. Ya, I thought so. (Did the Obama people get to the CBO? What is UP?)
God help us all.......Where will Canadians go? I'm through worrying about them. I'm worried about US. Please send this video around, more and more of us need to see it.
