It's Not a Trojan Horse, It's Just a Horse Called Single Payer [Jonah Goldberg]
I saw this Jacob Hacker clip yesterday on Beck. It may be old news to lots of people, but I'd never seen it before. You can find it around 1:46 but the whole thing is worth watching

There should be a way for folks to be able to get private health insurance, at decent rates, but NOT connected to an employer, so that it is portable. And it should also allow for folks to get high deductible plans, without Prescription Drug coverage, if they prefer that, along with Health Savings Accounts, from which they can pay for their routine physicals, tests, and medicines. If they are not paying $10K a year on health insurance, but instead, maybe $6K or $7K, they could put the balance in the Savings Account and use that money for those day to day out of pocket expenses.
This is AWESOME. Please ping.
And how about clinics opening in Wal-Mart or any other place that want to discount service but can’t because of government mandates? The doctor who wanted a monthly fee to see his patients has been denied to open his clinic. As an employer of a small business, my insurance rates are ridiculous and go up everytime an employee hits age 40 or heaven forbid, 50. I hate it, but I do not hate it enough to give my health care over to the likes of Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel who will determine I have no social benefit to society (i.e., vote Democrat) so therefore I should be denied care for whatever ails me. If we shop for cars, food, clothing and try to find the best deals, why can’t we shop for health care??? Are we just too stupid to do anything for ourselves anymore???

That’s good, Maybe I will “borrow” that for a cartoon!
Is Canada so bad it’s not on the list??
I don’t get it.
Thanks for being honest. I will work on it.
Keep trying. You have a future at this...
Actually no. The article was focused on Europe using the US as a reference. Canada seems to be better but still not as good as America. One problem with Canadian statistics is that some Canadian's head to America for diagnostic tests and treatment.
As a group, people who aggressively pursue diagnosis and treatment tend to do better. In this case, the Canadian statistics are artificially made to look better than they actually are due to some percentage of Canadians opting for "South of the border diagnosis and treatment".
Go for it..
worth watching and sharing! sent it to all I know.Thanks for the ping.
Excellent graphic - thank you!
I had a prayer request from my church for a member whose relative lives in Canada and has been told no more treatment and NO MORE MEDICINE for him and he has cancer.....the only recourse is prayer....
But when I read that -—— my blood boiled......because that is exactly what is coming here....
Leave them to suffer and die with nothing - not even the pain medicine that Obama seems to think will take care of all ills for those who do not meet the age based or health based quota.....
Everyone in the country needs to “sign” this petition to stop Obamacare, and his snitch program:
