Passage of the day.....

As the US heads down the path towards socialism and Americans become nothing more than objects that the government "cares" for, Americans will find that they are not really being cared for but controlled as the whims of the political class dictate who gets what in tomorrow's world. Just keep these following words in mind when the opiate of something-for-nothing government, particularly healthcare, is drilled into your head by Democrats....
The problems we face in healthcare today are not caused by doctors, insurance companies, drug companies, or medical device makers. The problems we face are caused by politicians creating more and more big government regulation, more and more government intrusion into the patient-doctor relationship. Their solution is a political one, but it is not in patients’ best interests. We must get the politicians OUT of healthcare.

Ronald Reagan warned in 1961: “Socialism begins with government control of medicine.” Reagan also said, “Socialized medicine is always presented as a great emergency, and if you challenge it, you are attacked with accusations that you lack compassion.” This is exactly what we are hearing from progressive Democrats today.
From here (more worrisome although I think a little too reactionary for me).

As scarce resources become subject to government control, you will see influence peddling enter a whole new era in the US. Need a procedure done and paid for under your new government mandated program? Well, you should hope that the company or doctors have lobbied to have that included under the mandated insurance coverage. Otherwise, you could fly to Thailand and go to Bumrungrad Hospital to get it done since it probably will not be offered in the US.

Everyone will suffer in one form or another but it will probably be the middle class that will suffer the most as government mandated costs will rise for the insurance plans that YOU HAVE to buy (mandated) and quality or availability of service will decrease (natural market forces).

Best of luck USA, you have no idea what you are getting into.
