This whole debate is about slowing the growth of Medicare. It has nothing to do with healthcare. Government run heathcare will not increase the
quality of healthcare in America, it will probably make it worse.
But this has nothing to do with healthcare. It's about slowing the growth of Medicare through Government rationed healthcare.
The chickens are coming home to roost when it comes to Medicare.
The problem is government can't keep it's promise. Medicare is not supposed to be like an insurance program. Some people said this was a disaster
waiting to happen because government couldn't keep up with rising health care costs.
Democrats don't want to admit the system has failed. They want to turn the government into an insurence agency and ration out health care based on
See when health care costs go up Medicare reimbursement goes up and the government wants to control this by rationing out healthcare. They will do
that through reimbursement rates. This is why Obama wants a Fannie Med type panel and he wants Executive control of Medicare reimbursement.
Obama always talks about reducing volume. He told the woman maybe her mother needed a pain pill instead of surgery.
So medical decisions will not be between you and your Doctor but your Doctor and the reimbursement rates Obama's hand picked government panel
So if a Doctor gives an elderly woman pain pills and end of life counseling they will be reimbursed more money from the government. If they give the
women surgery, they will be reimbursed less money or penalized.
So yes, people will die when the government begins to ration healthcare in order to slow the growth of Medicare. You really can't get around this.
Obama always talks about reducing healthcare services. He talked about the blue pill vs the red pill. He talked about allergy medicine vs. taking your
tonsels out. He talked about a pain pill vs surgery. Obama talked about taking too many tests.
You can't reduce volume because Doctors are not psychic or telepathic. When Obama or Pelosi go to the Doctor, I bet they want volume.
They want government ration healthcare for you in order to slow the growth of Medicare.
Medicare and Social Security need reform and then they need to be eventually phased out. This is because the systems are unsustainable because they
are Pyramid schemes. They pay out benefits based on workers paying into the system. If the top of the pyramid widens then they need more workers and
more taxes added to the system.
We need to switch to privitization and health savings accounts. This will mean that wealth will grow. With Medicare and Social Security it's
basically a sum zero game. Money at the bottom pays out benefits at the top. With privitization and health savings accounts the benefits will not be
dependent on more taxes and workers added to the pyramid.
