Bo, I hate to point out but do you really think that private insurance companies are any better than these corrupt bureaucracies?
Every HMO I've ever belonged to gave me far better care for far less money than the government system I was a part of. And, I had options in terms of
providers that don't seem to be an inherent part of government systems at all--certainly not often.
I cant understand at all where this globalisation idea and slaving idea comes from? As far as I can tell that kind of thing hasn't happened in any
countries where there is a socialized health care.
Stay tuned. Shrillery Klintoon really did envision a mandatory health care system which would have used medical records and the monitoring of medical
records to insure that corrupt traitorous folks like her and hubby could manipulate all and sundry to their destructive ends just like they used the
FBI files on their enemies to do.
Perhaps you remember that she swore under oath that she didn't know anything about such files . . . only to have them found months to a year or 3
later in the private closet in her private quarters in the White House--and she incredulously insisted she didn't know how they got there. And she
got away with it.
You want to trust that kind of globalist, socialist, communist champion with all your data in a national health care system--especially when they
begin to insist that your health records and financial and tax records must be put on a rice sized computer chip and injected into your body to combat
terrorism and for efficiency's sake . . . not to mention 24/7 monitoring's sake. ???
Count me out--very out. I'll choose death first.
When it comes to "flagrantly lopsided propaganda" then I'd have to quote your own posts where you say "It seems like 98% of the comments hereon
are blindly, blithely, uncritically, unthinkingly in behalf of socialism" and "From folks I've talked to, I'm not so sure. Seems like there are
enough horror stories of fraud..." etc..
Welllll, that's my personal EXPERIENCE.
Are you trying to tell me I didn't experience what I experienced?
Guess what--I'll trust my experience and my assessment and interpretation of my experience over your description of my experience any day, week,
month, year, decade, century.
Prior to this thread, routhly 98% of the comments I'd read on ATS about such were glowingly in favor of national health insurance . . . seemingly, to
my criteria--rather blindly, unthinkingly so. . . . and often rather uninformedly so, as far as I could tell.
And, similarly, my unscientific sampling of medical practitioner friends in national health care countries have all been on one side of the issue. Not
out of greed--but out of anguish over the shoddy treatment they've seen countless patients have to endure.
I figure those medical practitioners in such roles for many years have a perspective and a view point that I'll trust considerably more than I'm
ready to trust yours.
