Hellooooo? McBama? Anybody home? You are attempting to model our health care system after those systems around the world that have FAILED. They have realized this and are starting to move themselves back toward privatized health care.
Yet I don’t think you are truly stupid enough to believe that this will actually work. I believe you are simply trying to garner more power and control for yourself and your cronies over us. You and your fellow liberals have demonstrated yourselves to be liars. When you start to drop hints that you will no longer push for a mandatory public plan, you are not to be trusted. Even if you drop that stipulation in the first iteration of your health care “reform,” as Barney Frank was quoted as saying, you will not stop pursuing the public option/mandate until it becomes a reality. Any ground we the American people give you at this point is the proverbial camel’s nose under the tent. I have no desire to sleep with a camel, or to have my health care rationed, or to be told by a government flunky instead of my doctor what treatments are authorized, or to be told that I am not worth enough to the state to be provided with the treatment that will save my life, or to pay the price tag for illegal aliens and non-citizens who contribute nothing to this country and only sponge our resources and good will.
All of the European government run health care systems along with the Canadian and Cuban systems are in full cardiac arrest. Why in the world would we for any reason wish to emulate FAILURE?
Canadian Health Officials: Our Universal Health Care Is ‘Sick,’ Private Insurance Should Be Welcomed
Monday , August 17, 2009
Dr. Anne Doig, the incoming president of the Canadian Medical Association, said her country’s health care system is “sick” and “imploding,” the Canadian Press reported.
“We know there must be change,” Doig said in a recent interview. “We’re all running flat out, we’re all just trying to stay ahead of the immediate day-to-day demands.”
Canada’s universal health care system is not giving patients optimal care, Doig added. When her colleagues from across the country gather at the CMA conference in Saskatoon Sunday, they will discuss changes that need to be made, she said.
“We all agree the system is imploding, we all agree that things are more precarious than perhaps Canadians realize,” she said.
Current president of the CMA, Dr. Robert Ouellet, will make a presentation at the conference about his findings when he toured Europe in January, and met with health groups in several countries.
Ouellet has said that “competition should be welcomed, not feared,” meaning private health insurance should have a role in the public health system.
Doig said she isn’t sure what kind of changes will be proposed when the conference wraps up, but she does know that changes have to come – and fast. She said she understands that universal health care, while good in some ways, has not always been helpful for sick people or their families.
“(Canadians) have to understand that the system that we have right now — if it keeps on going without change — is not sustainable,” Doig said.
The rats are beginning to flee the sinking economic ship of the American dollar. This is not a good sign. All the major players around the world are beginning to dump the dollar, and when Obama or his minions, most notably Tim “Turbo-Tax-Cheat” Geithner tell the world “all is well,” they get openly laughed at. Yes, Geithner was openly laughed at during a speech he gave in China when he told them the dollar was sound. It’s much like Kevin Bacon during the closing scenes of Animal House when he tells the crowd to “remain calm, all is well” just before he is trampled to death by said crowd.
India Joins Russia, China in Questioning U.S. Dollar Dominance
By Mark Deen and Isabelle Mas
July 4 (Bloomberg) — Suresh Tendulkar, an economic adviser to Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, said he is urging the government to diversify its $264.6 billion foreign-exchange reserves and hold fewer dollars.
“The major part of Indian reserves is in dollars — that is something that’s a problem for us,” Tendulkar, chairman of the Prime Minister’s Economic Advisory Council, said in an interview yesterday in Aix-en-Provence, France, where he was attending an economic conference.
Singh is preparing to join leaders from the Group of Eight industrialized nations — the U.S., Japan, Germany, Britain, France, Italy, Canada and Russia — at a summit in Italy next week which is due to tackle the global economy. China and Brazil will also send representative to the summit.
As the talks have neared, China and Russia have stepped up calls for a rethink of how global currency reserves are composed and managed, underlining a power shift to emerging markets from the developed nations that spawned the financial crisis.
