Socialized Healthcare, Then And Now
Interestingly, socialized medicine was the debate topic when I was a sophmore in high school. I was against it then and nothing has convinced me to change my opinion. Virtually all the available information then, and now, indicate that health care suffers under a socialized medical care law.
Liberals seem to believe that the (Un)Affordable Care Act is the only plan out there and complain that conservatives don’t have a plan.
First: I don’t know why the liberals have to mess with those of us who already have health insurance. The (Un)ACA policies are discouraging businesses from hiring and making part-time workers out of full-time workers. If liberals are concerned about those who don’t have any insurance, deal with that problem and leave the rest of us alone.
Second: I would submit there is a conservative plan and it is called the free market. Let the insurance companies compete in all states for the business and it will keep prices down. The 30-40 million people who do not have health insurance could be asked to obtain, at a minimum, a major medical insurance policy so the country doesn’t have to pick up the tab if they have some type of catastrophic injury or illness.
Third: Do tort reform that will keep malpractice insurance costs down, which would, in turn, reduce the cost of care.
Fourth: Disallow the forgiveness of medical care costs in bankruptcy.
Fifth: A sales tax or value added tax on insurance policies and/or health care could be put in place to subsidize those who cannot afford the major medical policy.

A Liberal's Crocodile Tears
Kirsten Powers, staunch liberal and Fox News contributor, appeared on Special Report with Bret Baier Tuesday 11/12/2013, and complained that her health insurance had been canceled and her new insurance through the (Un)Affordable Health Care Act was doubling. She went on to say that the only reason it was so high was that she was now going to be paying for someone else's health insurance.
Where has Ms. Powers been? Mars? Did she just realize that the socialist scheme of our government, and Democrats in particular, has been all about the redistribution of wealth since the inception of the income tax?
The redistribution of wealth certainly looks a little different when it comes directly out of your pocketbook every month and ends up supporting some mooch in his underwear sitting on the couch playing video games all day, doesn't it Ms. Powers?
Ms. Powers' crocodile tears over her personal health care predicament couldn't make me happier.
