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.
