Breathless headline... "President Obama: Federal Government 'Will Go Bankrupt' if Health Care Costs Are Not Reined In"....

This guy, the President of the US, is complete and total idiot and he is trying to make an idiot out of each and every one of you. He is arguing that the nation needs to socialize healthcare in order to avoid bankruptcy of the nation. Huh? The old spend more to save more thingy. However, the problem with the neo-communist solution that the Democrats are promising to pass does almost nothing to cut costs and in addition, also creates massive new Federal bureaucracies, huge new taxes, gigantic increases in insurance premiums, unfunded mandates to the states, individuals, and employers and incentives for people to use more healthcare not less. The moron speaks....
President Obama told ABC News’ Charles Gibson in an interview that if Congress does not pass health care legislation that will bring down costs, the federal government “will go bankrupt.”

The president laid out a dire scenario of what will happen if his health care reform effort fails.

Gibson Obama “If we don't pass it, here's the guarantee….your premiums will go up, your employers are going to load up more costs on you,” he said. “Potentially they're going to drop your coverage, because they just can't afford an increase of 25 percent, 30 percent in terms of the costs of providing health care to employees each and every year. “

The president said that the costs of Medicare and Medicaid are on an “unsustainable” trajectory and if there is no action taken to bring them down, “the federal government will go bankrupt.”

“This actually provides us the best chance of starting to bend the cost curve on the government expenditures in Medicare and Medicaid,” Obama said.
Hello...Medicare and Medicaid are already government run programs and if the government is all that efficient and effective in managing healthcare, then why are they on an unsustainable trajectory? From here. How can the government save money for people. A clue for you people that are messianiac believers in big government, IT CANNOT BE DONE. For those that believe the silky opiate but nonsensical words of this moron, you are just as idiotic as this clown.

Also, just have a look at this, Medicare subsidizes the healthcare of elderly citizens and it has had to pay for residencies of new doctors to keep the teaching hospitals afloat that service these patients. But since Medicare is going bankrupt, they have reduced or capped funding for this program since 1997 and it has not kept pace with the need for doctors.....
Last year, there were 16,721 fewer primary-care doctors than needed in inner city and rural areas, according to the U.S. Health and Human Services Department. Residencies, the hospital based-training doctors undergo before they can practice medicine on their own, have been capped by Congress at about 90,000 since 1997 as a way to curb rising medical costs.

“Do the math,” said Safyer, president and chief executive officer at the New York hospital, in a telephone interview. “You give millions more people insurance, and it adds up to a much worse shortage.”

The doctor crunch is a result of an aging population and a rising demand for specialists, according to the federal health department. By 2025, the nation as a whole will confront a shortfall of as many as 159,300 doctors of all varieties, said Ed Salsberg, director of the Center for Workforce Studies at the Washington-based medical college association.
From here. Hahaha. I can just imagine that you folks that think that you will be able to see a doctor when you need it. You will be screwed since neo-communist healthcare run the government will never work and it will become much much worse than what the nation has now.

I went and got my citizenship application papers in order to apply for citizenship in a nation that is becoming more free, not less free like the US. I hope that I can extricate myself from that idiotic place.
