First, download your pdf copy of H. R. 3200 at the Government Printing Office link. Then get a cup of coffee - this is going to be a long one. Then check the following list of problems with Obama's Government Control Health Care proposal.
The Obama Health Care Plan is a tangle. Participation will be mandatory. We must stop this madness.
Free people ought to be able to make their own choices. If we cannot make our own choices, then either something is wrong with us, or something sucks about the system. What is wrong with the proposed health care system is the politicians in full rebellion against the lawful authority of the people.
But, gee, the private system doesn't care. Usually this complaint heard as "private health care is for profit." This ignores that profitability comes from administrative efficiency. In a private market where one supplier will go out of biz if they don't deliver the service. In a public option, this incentive for efficiency goes away.
Sure, private health care bureaucrats are uncaring at times. Government bureaucrats, drawn from the same stock of humanity, will also be uncaring. More so, since it is next to impossible to fire a government employee. If you think you've had to deal with uncaring bureaucrats, you ain't seen nuthin' yet. Obama Care will suck the life out of American health care.
But, gee, the government has unlimited resources.
Get serious. Government resources are limited as the people are limited. And government administration lacks vision. Just behold the wonder of Social Security administration. Saying yes is easy, but paying for yes is hard. We will have to pay for what they say. Are you up for this? Really?
