I think so. Except for active military only, that I could see as being apart of the military, for the reasons of security and such. Such as special
forces and stuff their medical records should be sealed and out of the private sector, until they retire.
This is the way I see it, the government sucks at running their own affairs. By the time the money filters through the bureaucracy there really isn't
much left to go to whatever the taxes are supposed to be paying. I was talking to somebody in government and they were telling me how it costs $0.75
out of every dollar collected in taxes just to run the government. That leaves $0.25 out of dollar to be spent on schools, roads, fire, police, etc.
Example, the school system. There are a lot of schools that are closing down because they aren't funded, because the states have overspent, and the
One Child Left behind act, has caused even more funding to go away from funding those schools.
Look at Social Security, it's going to pay out more than it takes in this year. Medicare that's all screwed up.
My position is this, if the government could actually run a program better than a private company then we could talk about the pro's and con's of
the government running a business. The problem is everything they touch they screw up.
So excluding fire, police, military, roads, etc.(necessary items) the fed government needs to get out of all private sector affairs. I don't disagree
with some safety nets, such as welfare and unemployment, but health care, the government needs to get out of it, they have screwed it up enough
