Trust me, I work for the Government

Health Insurance companies staying healthy

Tonight there is no reasoned argument. I have been out reading and raising my blood pressure. Good thing I still have health care. This is not a balanced argument, I needed to let off steam.

George Bush, last year said anyone can get health care “I mean, people have access to health care in America. After all, you just go to an emergency room.” He really said that , send the man a pretzel.

Just send 47,000,000 Americans to the emergency room. Should they go one at a time or all at once?

Don’t worry, Mitt Romney is coming to our rescue

Mitt says the uninsured are freeloaders “The reason health care isn’t working like a market right now is you have 47 million people that are saying, “I’m not going to play. I’m just going to get free care paid for by everybody else.” Freeloading, sicko deadbeats. Stay well if you want to keep your costs down!

So you unemployed deadbeat, eighty year old cripple, just because you have emphysema, or heart disease is no excuse not to be earning enough for health insurance, no matter what the cost.

Give ‘em credit, the Republicans designed a built in cure in the last Medicare bill, called the “donut hole” where none of your medicines are paid for. At this point you stop paying for medicine because you want to eat. See the genius of the plan? Soon you will have no expenses at all. Skip enough medicine and the cost to the public falls to zero as soon as Social Security chips in the $300.00 death benefit.

In Canada a major hospital stay costing over ten thousand dollars might set you back $400 or nothing in some areas, and you could expect the same in England, France, Germany, or Scandinavia.

The same “compassionate conservatives” that say the use of emergency rooms by illegal aliens is breaking the system are proposing that (now 49,000,000 since you started reading) Americans use the same emergency rooms as primary care physicians.

I am certain that these politicos have never had to go to an emergency room in their life, unless G.W. needed to go for an OD during his party boy days. These are the same politicos that accept free federal health care, or free State health care in Mitt’s case. The Senate and the house have a 24×7 ambulance with trained medics standing by “just in case”.

In Maine the same “cure” is being proposed for the expense of the State Employee health care plan. Cut benefits, raise costs. Then the taxpayer pays the emergency room. But at least the insurance companies will stay healthy.
