“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

Everybody, equal in misery

If elected, the Breck Girl plans to plunge the American health-care consumer into a disasterously abysmal system like that of Canada, the U.K., and Cuba...

TIPTON, Iowa - Democratic presidential hopeful John Edwards said on Sunday that his universal health care proposal would require that Americans go to the doctor for preventive care.

"It requires that everybody be covered. It requires that everybody get preventive care," he told a crowd sitting in lawn chairs in front of the Cedar County Courthouse. "If you are going to be in the system, you can't choose not to go to the doctor for 20 years. You have to go in and be checked and make sure that you are OK."

Edwards said his mandatory health care plan would cover preventive, chronic and long-term health care. The plan would include mental health care as well as dental and vision coverage for all Americans.

"The whole idea is a continuum of care, basically from birth to death," he said.

Edwards said his plan would cost up to $120 billion a year, a cost he proposes covering by ending President Bush's tax cuts to people who make more than $200,000 per year.

Disappointingly, far too many Americans are perfectly willing to cede responsibility for their own health-care over to mindless government bureaucrats. If you are one of those sheep-like, submissive, dependent Americans who are planning to vote democrat because you want somebody else to be responsible for you, this is what you'll get...

-extremely long waiting times(months or years) for even basic care
-the very real probability that you will die waiting for cancer treatement, basic surgery, and specialist care
-the likelyhood that a pasty, 4-eyed government bean-counter will determine the appropriate treatment for your illness, rather than your doctor
-the sudden shortage of many life-saving drugs because when the government controls drug costs, there is no motive for drug companies to invent new ones
-sub-standard MD expertise because when the gov't controls how much money doctors make, the best and brightest minds will do something else for a living

Are you starting to get the picture of what Hillary, Obama, and Silky Pony have in store for you? But don't believe me. Google "socialized health care realities" or something similar and see for yourself.

Here's the Breck Girl trying to explain why his family deserves the best care while regular Americans will have to wait months or years for basic care under his new plan.

Canada, U.K. and Cuba will probably be extict in a year or two.

Ed said...

Right you are, hip. If only we can keep the democrats out of office long enough for that to happen so they won't be tempted to try it here.

Kevin said...

Ed, we are doomed to be run by democrats, too many people in this country can't support themselves, and are going to vote in the people who will give them a free ride through life, i.e. we as taxpayers will support them.

Ed said...

If you look at any model of successful civilization in history, when the populace figures out it can vote itself huge goody-bags from the public coffers, that civilization is doomed to collapse.

And the Breck Girl is offering up the biggest goody-bag of all--free health care, in exchange for votes.

Kevin said...

Yeah he is basically buying votes from the poor people. Ironically enough, he is offering people goody bags that they cant afford, and the taxpayers are the ones paying for it, and here is the good part, taxpayers arent the ones who voted him in. I hate liberal social policies.

Edwards is no different than Clinton or Carter. Give away, buy, trade, but with no collateral and without any moral background. Free health care is a greta idea. Lets examine it quickly: Doctors average about $ 300,000 per year in salaries. Insurance costs are rising currently, without the extra burden of this free medical aid.
Now if medical care is free, doctors must become government employees. That way they can be paid through taxes. Not gonna happen. Insurance is not needed, since medicine is now free. There goes the Pharmacists working for Uncle Sam, and it eliminates the need for drug reps. Insurance sales people drop off, because those dealing in that type of insurance aren't needed. Where do they go to work? Who pays for their needs, again the taxpayers that are left working along with the now lower paid and overworked doctors. Now the legal practice will start fading (one can't sue the government). Hospitals will start to decline. Government run facilities are th worst kept and poorest managed of the health care facilities. Those people selling to them will start to suffer, because the government will buy from large national accounts to save money. More jobs lost. I can keep going, but what happens is that this country ends up with a large percentage of illegals (that already get free helth care) and a large population of unemployeeable people that used to be hard working viable taxpayers. By the way, when there are no tax payers left to pay taxes and therefore no one left to support free heath care, where do we go? Is Canada going to bail us out? What about Mexico? How about our friends in Venezuela? Bleak and darkness on the horizon.
