We don't need Government takeover of healthcare. The health care system is fine, we just need to add preventive care to the system. We don't need
government takeover of the healthcare system.
The way Obama talks about healthcare is ghoulish. He told a women that her mother migh just need a pain pill instead of surgery. He talked about the
blue pill and the red pill and how some people should take the cheaper red pill.
Obama can't make these decisions and neither can some panel in Washington. He always talks about reducing volume and increasing quality.
If you reduce volume, your going to reduce quality because Doctors are not psychic or telepathic.
I had a friend go to the Doctor with a headache and they found out he had a tumor because of volume. They did blood work and a battery of tests. I bet
when Pelosi or Obama goes to the Doctor they want volume. They want things ruled out. This is why the Congress didn't want this option for
Under Obamacare, the Doctor would have to look at a list of procedures from some panel in Washington. If you uses the cheap procedure, he will be
given a bigger reimbursement. If you use a procedure that this Government panel deems expensive, then he will be penalized. So of course this will
lead to a horrible, governtment rationed health care system.
Dr. will make more money if they prescribe the cheap red pill and they will be reimbursed less money if they prescribe the expensive blue pill.
These things are between a Doctor and patient, not Government. I have had a side effect from a medicine and then I went to see my Doctor and we worked
it out after a checkup. People don't need there Doctors treated them according to some panel in Washington.
In 2008, total national health expenditures were expected to rise 6.9 percent -- two times the rate of inflation.1 Total spending was $2.4 TRILLION in
2007, or $7900 per person1. Total health care spending represented 17 percent of the gross domestic product (GDP).
We have a 13 trillion dollare GDP and the National debt is 11.6 trillion. We need to fix some things when it comes to healthcare but we need
Government reform. We can handle 2.4 trillion in a 13 trillion dollar economy.
We can't handle an 11.6 trillion dollar behemoth in Washington.
People keep trying to compare us to places like Canada or Cuba and they don't realize that Cuba has a population of 11 million with a GDP of 45
Billion. Canada has a population of 30 million with a GDP of 1.2 trillion.
We have a country with a population of 200 million plus with a GDP of 13 trillion. Why in the world would we want to be like Cuba, Canada or some
other socialist place? The reason we have a 13 trillion dollar GDP is because we have a free market. We don't need Government run and rationed
The crooks in Washington voted this down for themselves. They don't want this Government run healthcare. If it's not good enough for their families,
why is it good enough for mine? They get to choose between private insurance that we pay for. They have a gas station in the basement of Congress.
These people are elitist and we need Government reform and not Government takeover of the healthcare system.
