Yesterday I watched the victory laps being run by Pelosi and her props following the cancellation of the vote on the healthcare payment bill. She pointed out that doctors, hospitals, health product suppliers, healthcare workers, and many others were against this Bill. A wise person asks why. Obama started us down the road to a single payer system. It slipped out twice , that I heard, during the debate that "people like Medicare, and we need to put EVERYBODY on Medicare.". Single payer. Government pays. Everybody spends healthcare dollars with no clue the true cost or impact on their livelihood.
We need free market health insurance that is insurance rather than a membership to treatment, personally owned and funded health savings accounts that can build with no limits and become a part of your estate if any remains, and whether paid through insurance, savings or it of pocket, the patient pays the bills and is reimbursed for covered expenses.
Let us all know what it costs, and then we will shop and spend like we do for our other purchases.
