Our Superstar President has been like a broke hooker as of late. He’s breaking all the rules and appearing on more televised shows than a regular celebrity. Why? Well, it’s to promote National Healthcare.
The debate has been boiling over this. A socialistic healthcare system in America!
I’m actually not sure exactly how I feel about the matter. I mean, it’s true that we have a problem with our current system. Fifty-million people are uninsured, or underinsured. Should this be the care in the most prosperous country in the World? Filmmakermade a strong point in asserting that Communist China has a better (if not the best) system than us.
But, one can understand the counter argument as well; nobody wants to pay higher taxes, or increase the deficit, or, in a sort of ethical contention – pay for somebody else’s bills.
It is a complicated issue, and I have neither the time, nor all the facts, to make a full page commentary report on this matter. I’d like to, and perhaps I well later. But I would like to point out one element of this debate which has me really pissed off…
The Baucus Plan: the mandatory requirement that all Americans buy some sort of rudimentary health care. “Just like care insurance” they say. To me, it stinks of 1930’s Mafioso behavior. Guy owns a little store, then one day a guy comes in and says he wants you to buy his protection.
“But I have my own insurance, and I own a firearm.” The shop-owner pleads.
“Yeah, but this insurance is different.” The man explains.
“Well, if you don’t buy it…I’m gonna smash this place to fucking pieces. Oh and I know where you live. Got a wife, bud? Kids?”
This is a basic illustration of mafia coercion. The difference here would be of course that the Gangster is Uncle Sam, and he wants his cut. I mean, he usually does. The punishment will just be, oh, yeah…more robbing of your money.
Whether we have a Government run Health plan or not, people should not be forced to pay anything more. We’re already sucked dry from this State, and lately the only thing we’ve seen is more erosion of basic liberties, and a President who has lied on so many promises he made on the Campaign Trail (Getting us out of the stupid Wars, ending the Patriot Acts, letting us have our Gun Rights). So what’s one more little thing, like say a forced socialist Agenda?
I understand that people without insurance usually go to the hospital, there a bill is made, and attached onto the deficit…again making someone else pay. Fine. But to take a page out of libertarian philosophy, it would be better to have a waiver, stating that you don’t want insurance if something happens to you.
