Socialized Healthcare

You wouldn’t think people would want the government meddling in healthcare and health insurance, especially when everything bad about our system is a direct result of government interference. For those of you who think it would be awesome for Obama, Reed, and Pelosi to have their way with you, watch this video. It’s about healthcare in Canada.

I know Canadians. I’ve visited Canada a couple times. It’s nice, but America, you don’t want what Canada has got with a healthcare system.

Imagine waiting months for a non-urgent visit. The doctor spends 3 minutes with you and prescribes a medicine that doesn’t work. Now you’ve got to wait who knows how long to get back in. What do you do? That’s right, you decide it’s not worth the trouble so you just live with your ailment.

Imagine an urgent need, and you still have to wait hours or even days to get evaluated. The doctor is busy and can’t be bothered trying to figure out what’s wrong with you, so they say you really don’t have an urgent need so just go home. Or you need a certain drug that they are all out of, so come back in a week when you might get a dose from their next shipment.

The next thing you know, big brother is telling you that you really don’t need an eye exam all that often.

Say no to any government healthcare “reform.” Real reform would be Texas style tort reform. Decreased insurance costs would happen if people would wise up and realize that insurance would be cheaper if you only used it for emergencies and just paid for routine and minor office visits yourself- life the high deductable plans meshed with health savings accounts. It’s not a coincidence that those are going away under the legislation being debated right now.
