There seems little doubt these days that the Democrat Socialist Party is going to kick through a national form of socialized medicine in America --- and soon. If we conservatives, we Americans who want to rescue America from the socialists, don’t find a way to stop it (in the Congress) it WILL be a done deal within, I suspect, three months!
We have already beaten back one attempt. That was by Mrs. Bill Clinton. That attempt at Socialized Medicine in America would have destroyed heathcare in the US. That was back when her husband, “The Boy President,” was occupying the Oval Office. The only thing changed since then is the Democrat Party has moved solidly into the socialist realm of political philosophy and dropped anchor there.
Hillarycare 1.0 was defeated, overwhelmingly, on the first attempt. It was a ponderous mess. So, THIS time, they intend to take a different approach… and it has already begun. Insuring the children is one of the incremental steps in saddling the nation with a single-payer form of socialized healthcare. (It’s “for the children,” don’t you know. The oldest slight of hand trick in the book STILL works on guilt ridden liberal Americans!)
Early on, we were informed that the next attempt would most likely be patterned after the Canadian nationalized healthcare system. Oh, GREAT! All indicators tell us these days that the Canadian system is about to crash of it’s own weight! That can’t be good!
Ok, so how does the Canadian healthcare system stack up against US healthcare these days, anyway? Where better to get a comparison than from a declared liberal site. So we dropped by the site “Classically Liberal” here:
We found some interesting stuff. The piece is entitled: Does Canadian health care really stack up so well? We recommend you visit the site and read it in its entirety.
Here’s a snippet from the article:
“Considering that one of the alleged virtues of Canada’s health system is the “equality” factor it is interesting to see that more individuals in the US, with specific conditions, are receiving treatment than do their counterparts in Canada. The report also found that the poor in the United States reported as much, or more health care, than those in Canada did.This report also noted that waiting time in Canada for care is significantly longer than in the United States. The absence of care, they contend, is more problematic than the ability to pay for the care. As they note “costs may be more easily overcome than the absence of services.” That is, it is easier to find a way to pay for care that is available than to make the care available when it doesn’t exist.And, when patients in both countries are asked to rate their satisfaction with the care they receive, the typical American, in spite of a reputation for complaining, was happier than the typical Canadian.”
Well, now… THIS certainly is different than the info we are used to being spoon-fed by our MSM here in the States, huh?
Here’s another snippet:
“Americans have a slightly higher incidence of chronic health problems than Canadians, but they also have higher treatment rates.The discrepancies between income and health care received has not disappeared in Canada and is actually steeper than in the United States.More Americans report satisfactory health care than do Canadians.”
And then there is this….. “in light of the inability of the Canadian system to provide the care it promised the nation’s Supreme Court ruled that bans on private medical care were unconstitutional and inhumane.” What does this mean? It means that PRIVATE Health care is now LEGAL in Canada and Canadians are flocking to the private clinics… and the Government Healthcare system of Canada is even sending patients to the PRIVATE CLINICS for treatment they cannot supply their patients!
… And this is the system the dems want to saddle the US with? WHY? Because it is another step in their plan to lock America into the Welfare State mentality
They have already established socialism as the dominanat form of government in the US! (Yep, Capitalism is gone, Socilaism is IN!) Now, they need to get every American on the dole. Socialized Medicine will do just that!
I have said a number of times, in the past, that the election Of Obama was a victory for ignorance in America. I don’t know why I think I can change the minds of Americans who voted for the man, knowing he was, and is, a socialist. Intellectually, I know I cannot be successful, yet I feel, as an American, I must try to help save what little is left of the America our forefathers gave us. ( I think it must be a generational thing.) In the circles within which I travel the folks I find who admit to having voted for Obama are the uneducated/undereducated, the young and inexperienced, the minority welfare class, and the well eductated who hope to gain by being a part of the political party which has dominance over the other groups mentioned in the first part of this sentence. These people now rule America. All you have to do to see a recipe for disaster is step back and take a look at who these people are. All your questions as to how America became a socialist country are answered in this single paragraph.
Back to Socilaized Medicine: There is NO SUCH THING AS FREE HEALTHCARE! SOMEBODY IS GOING TO PAY! Who pays? You and I will pay… in taxes. If you think healthcare is expensive now… just wait ‘til it’s free!
Get a GRIP, America! There is NO FREE LUNCH! There never has been! If you want it… you must be prepared to pay for it. We pay for Socialized Medicine in America by trading our freedom for it.
Socialized medicine is not about healthcare. It’s about power and control of a nation’s citizens. Consider the source! The folks of the Democrat Socialist Party are past masters at the old “Bait and Switch” game! If Americans are dumb enough to bite the bait they dangle, Americans are going to feel the pain when they set the hook! First you swallow the bait… then they snatch the line and set the hook --- and they’ve caught an entire nation! And THAT, boys and girls, is how America became a SOCIALIST NATION!
