Posted on 01/31/2014 8:43:56 AM PST by SeekAndFind
Voters have been primed to blame the rich for their woes and expect medical insurance as a right, so the next logical step will be to morph ObamaCare into a vessel that achieves those goals: socialized medicine.
The Republican alternatives of self-reliance and invisible hand manifestations are like a Beethoven concerto played for a strip club audience demanding heavy metal to accompany overt gyrations by a near-naked entertainer.
Can Republicans entice the majority without selling their souls, not to mention the future of our great Republic, or will they allow further slide into the unsustainable, inefficient transfer-of-wealth Democratic vision?
To get logically to where I believe Republicans need to be on this issue, let us consider the status quo.
Government employees have great medical insurance. Lawmakers have legislated the best insurance for themselves, but all "public servants" have also been ordained to deserve superior insurance. While teachers, for example, complain about being underpaid for their nine months of work each year, they happily accept their twelve months of excellent health insurance.
As union members, many government employees, including teachers, overlap the second group with generally great insurance. It isn't a coincidence that unions, as big Democratic supporters, received special exemptions from ObamaCare.
In addition, Medicaid has been expanded by Obamacare, and while this insurance has never been championed as the best in the land, it does provide free coverage to an increasing number of people.

Republicans “should”? be Conservative and follow Conservative ideals.
“Republicans” who embrace universal healthcare might as well then take the next step and join the communist party.
Republicans should embrace the US Constitution and let the rest flow from there.
The GOP will be way past death watch right after it bends over and allows a Bawney Fwank by the illegal aliens.
The GOP is dead, dead, dead.
They stink...they smell like Obamastuff.
They are uglier than Nostralitis Waxman.
They are dumber than Nancy (boink a rich man and become a congresscritter) Box-osi.
Liberty is dying.
We are about to enter, as Churchill predicted, a new Dark Age m. One which will be made the more terrible and prolonged by the sinister powers of science.
Yeah... The answer to this will always be “No”.
One of the key problems is that we have developed medical technologies that are more and more costly. We all want the latest procedures/pharmaceuticals/prosthetics, but we want someone else to pay for them. The future promises more of the same. Handing out blank checks will not solve the problem, as I see it,
.....IT’S ODUNGO’s objective....
Articles like this are all about getting the ball rolling on the GOP helping to “fix” obamacare.
Something will have to be done. Over 50 million people we lose their employer provided health care and be dumped on the exchanges by their employers. Maybe 100 million. The GOP knows there will be way to repeal Democratcare once that back once it happens. So the GOP leadership is just sitting tight and letting it happen.
Not in a million years!
(What a question!?)
Common Sense 101; Universal Healthcare would be unsustainable on every level.
Universal Healthcare is the Liberal buzz-word for power.
Like Obamacare, 30million plus, people will STILL be without healthcare i.e., insurance of any kind. Healthcare will still be provided for the truly needy.
Answer is: NO....no one should embrace healthcare, Universal or Obamacare.
I remember the adage, “No question is stupid if you don’t know the answer”. This is the exception.. the question is stupid. NO, NO, and NO.
