What are you doing here on a site for smart people?
Asking The GOVERNMENT to “offer something national regarding health-care.” will get you nothing but bigger government
You are believing the lie. There is NO ONE who would be refused emergency care in any hospital in the USA
So the “30 million” without insurance are already sponging off the rest of us... and you want a GOVERNMENT PROGRAM to fix that????????
A GOVERNMENT PROGRAM??????????????
before the government got involved in health care doctors used to make house calls and everyone was taken care of by friends and neighbors and charities- all the government did was make it big and fat an bloated so that 70% of the money is lost in the bureaucracy (like EVERY government program)
Don't display your idiocy here... Demanding that “we must do something” will fly much better on libtard sites.
Sorry at the moment our government has insisted that “healthcare” is a government-enforced monopoly.
I have no sympathy for free-market appeals, regarding a system which has more government mandates than any other aspect of America.
If we are going to free markets, then eliminate the massive, expensive and unfair system we have now,
THEN I will fight tooth and nail, for your freedom to insist we protect such a system.
That is NOT what we have now.
What we have now, is simply expensive, and grossly unfair to far too many Americans.
As you can see from the list below, the federal government agencies below listed just for the alphabet letter A are approximately 33. I was going to come up with a total but there are just too many. Indeed, there must be hundreds, if not thousands of them! Bear in mind that 100 years ago almost none of these agencies existed. Give me and two or three freepers one week in a conference room and we could pretty fairly and justly and accurately cut this list down to half, if not one quarter.
So, your right! It is insane to suggest that “The Government” do anything! They don’t do courts well, they don’t do police well, they don’t do the military well. They do create debt well. Liberals LOVE government! They now control it. That is why we are where we are.
The one thing the government, with all of it’s legions of affirmative actors, should do is stay completely away from the health industry forever. Collectively, they don’t have the IQ or worldly experience to empty the trashcans. Let the market dictate as it surely would if left alone! If some regulation is needed, create a panel of doctors, lay person’s and yes, a few lawyers to do so. All of them to be unpaid and with 2 year terms.
