We're not afraid of an NHS, we're afraid of how the government
will screw it up like everything else they do (Iraq, Afghanistan,
Katrina, T.A.R.P., Drug policy....you name it).
By the way, there is no such thing as "free" health care. Somebody,
somehow must pay for it. Included in the present bills are so many
more intrusive policies that allow the government to look into our'bank
accounts and other areas that we consider to be private. The last straw
is that illegal aliens will also get said "free" healthcare, at taxpayer
expense despite Obama's protestations to the contrary. Illegals
are already a severe drain on our economy.
No thanks seems to be the national inclination. Despite many
horror stories most people here don't think the system is broken
and needs any fixing. Even myself being presently disabled and
having many problems with getting competent healtcare don't
want to risk making things any worse than they already are.
Also we've wised up to the fact that any legislation this all-
encompassing will doubtless have many built in bonuses and
kickbacks for both the insurance industry and the pharmaceutical
Americans simply are not in the mood for possibly making things
any worse, we have enough trouble to deal with at present.
When Joe Wilson said "liar!" he meant it and we believe him!
