That's a great slanted video.... did you notice how your video cuts off and you never get hear Ron Paul's response?
It would be something like "Well we shouldn't be responsible for his health care, even if he doesn't have enough money"
Something vague like that which totally deflects the questions that were being asked to him.
Well, ObamaCare doesn't even provide health care, it's just a law that says you are required to go out and buy health insurance (if your company does
not provide it to you) or you breaking the law and owe fines to the government. Last time I checked, health insurance premiums for a single (HEALTHY)
individual were close to $5,000 / year (according to www.usatoday.com...
) . Unhealthy
individuals or smokers can expect to pay upwards of $8,000 PER MONTH. Is that your alternative?
Or do you suggest that the government pays to provide everyone health insurance? Hey, in a strong, economically sound country (that Ron Paul proposes)
that might be possible. But in our current debt-ridden, bankrupt, business owner's worst nightmare of a country right now, the government trying to
come up with the money to give every citizen health care would destroy the country. Imagine the average health insurance premium per year for a
healthy individual of $5,000, multiply it by the US population of 307,006,550, and you come up with a minimum of 1.53 TRILLION dollars the government
would have to pay yearly to pay for our health care. What's the point of having health insurance if you have no country to live in?
This is where I'm baffled by liberals though. If the government is paying for our health care, they are getting it from our tax money. they don't just
come up with it from thin air. So, basically the government is taking money from us, then paying for our health care? Why not just end taxes or lower
taxes, and have people pay for their own healthcare? Answer: Lazy Americans.
