Hey OP...how's this sit with you? Maybe a bit exaggerated, but let's just say for kicks and grins, how is this going to turn out with government
controlled healthcare. Now, remember, the healthcare coverage in this country is going to change from what it is now, so your wonderful medicaid
isn't going to work the way it does now, if they pass this.
1: Jonny III., who is 6, falls on the playground and breaks his arm. He goes to the ER and waits for 4 hours, in pain, but eventually, they set his
arm, throw on a cast and give him some aspirin and send him on his way. Hey, the kid's young and healthy and has his whole life in front of himin
eight weeks, he goes and gets the cast removed, everything is fine except for the rash on his arm since he had to wear the cast an additional two
weeks cause he had to wait for a doctor.
2: Jonny Sr. is 80 and has a massive heart attack. The doctor calls the government or goes by guidelines or however they decide to do it. Well,
he's 80, he's lived a full life but we don't have a dr to do surgery and it would be too costly. Put him on a vent and in a room at the end of the
hall and see how is does. Well, since he's so old and can't have bypass surgery or stints, or anything else, he has lost oxygen to his brain, his
organs shut down and he's dead in two days - or - we'll do surgery but it will be three months before he can have it and he dies in the meantime.
Jonny Jr. is 40, and now he's lost his father, since he has an addicctive personality, the stress of losing his father is taking it's toll, so one
night he as one too many pills to ward off the stress and oh no, taken to the hospital in an ambulance. Well, the decision makers of your medical
care look at your record and say, well, he's OD'd before and he has had addictions, do we really want to spend much more on him? Give him an IV
with fluids and see what happens. Well, Jr. is going to go in one of two ways. He's either going to live with perhaps some brain damage or he's
going to die.
Which leaves Jonny III with no grandfather and maybe no father, or a father that can't take care of himself and is now a burden to his family because
the government doesn't feel they need to do too much as he is ok sitting in his recliner staring into space.
Maybe a bit exaggerated, but honestly think about it.
So, two things to live by here, and they are true.
Beware of wolves in sheep's clothing and Be careful what you wish for because you just might get it.
