Down a Slippery Slope?
week the US House of Representatives is to vote on the Senate passed
version of the health care bill. Some call it Obamacare. The outcome
of this vote could change the United States of America forever.
it’s not about health care costs, or universal coverage, or any
financial concerns. One would have to be naïve in the extreme to
believe that such a program would not be the first step toward
socialized medicine. President Obama has said on record before a union
audience that his preference is for a one payer socialized medicine
program like England or Canada.
simply socialized medicine on the installment plan. Its passage would
signal the end of free market medical care. It would pass the baton on
your health coverage from you deciding what is best for you, to
government deciding what is best for you.
it will lead to an English or Canadian system with dramatic health care
shortages and an end to advances in medical care. That’s simply the
nature of socialism.
Your health care will
be determined by “standards” having to do with how old you are, how
healthy you are, and your value to society.
will eventually be assigned a doctor, you won’t choose your own.
Government created rules and guidelines will determine what care you are
entitled to and what you cannot receive. Like England and Canada,
you’ll wait months for medical care, and even emergency medical care
will take hours and days. The quality of health care will deteriorate
as bureaucrats make life or death decisions and as the cost of health
care soars. When has any government entity ever done anything more
efficiently than the free market?
