PHOENIX — The White House, facing increasing skepticism over President Obama’s call for a public insurance plan to compete with the private sector, signaled Sunday that it was willing to compromise and would consider a proposal for a nonprofit health cooperative being developed in the Senate.
I won't be insured...and then well, they can fine me, and throw me into jail for not paying the fine if they like!
It is simple. Obama should set up a health department to oversee the medical treatment of the poor and the unemployed. He should hire doctors and nurses to care for the poor.The department would be bare bones most of the money would go into the salaries of the medical personel and the treatments. If the health department developed a good reputation for high quality inexpensive care , the government would not need to force people with money to use their medical services. There are so many wasteful and unpopular government agencies which could stand to be cut inorder to see to it the poor and the unemployed had descent medical care.
How about that expensive war on drugs? Then there is all the money imprisoning people on trumped up drug charges. Let's not forget about space toilets. We are also putting tax money into government kid napping rings. I don't see a purpose in hiring IRS agents to go after people who make less than twenty thousand dollars a year. We are also paying people to spy on people who buy lab equipment. I could go on forver.
