May I Bloviate

2012-06-14

6/14/12 May I Bloviate Could it be that government and insurance companies are the major problem with the cost of health care. There was a news story by Byron Harris on WFFA channel 8. It featured a lady that needed a walker. Going through Medicare and her insurance the walker would cost $348.00, there would be a 40% copay of $139.00. The lady saw the identical walker in Krogers for $99.00 and it went on sale for $69.00. A story in the Los Angeles Times by Chad Terhune. A hospital charges $4,423.00 for a CT scan, if you use insurance it will cost $2400.00, but if you do not use your insurance, $250.00 will pay the bill. I received an E-Mail from a friend, and his story went like this. He went to the doctor and was given a prescription, it was $300.00, so he opted for a generic which was to cost $100.00, he finally found a medication that provided the same benefit as the $300.00 for $3.95, yes that is three dollars and ninety five cents. I have had similar experiences, and know of several more such instances. The President is still blaming President Bush for the mess this country is in. There is no doubt that there is enough blame to go around. So let us go back in history. You hear both parties say that entitlements must be fixed or they will be bankrupt. We the people have been swallowing the sugar coated poison, the politicians have been promising us great benefits using other peoples money, and that eventually runs out. Democrats promoted social security, the war on poverty, medicare, and medicade. Trillions of dollars have been spent to rid the country of poverty, have you heard of it being eradicated? I don’t remember the constitution saying anything about entitlements. It does mention LIFE, LIBERTY, AND THE PERSUIT OF HAPPINESS and happiness is not a guarantee, but as long as you have life and liberty, you can pursue it. The election in Wisconsin should open the eyes of the public sector union folks. Contrary to popular belief there are working people that are not members of a union. Why would they object to paying into their retirement and health care plans. The self employed pay into social security, guess who pays the employee’s part and the employer’s part. The union bosses say they are concerned about the workers, if that were true their income would be the same as the workers. The President says that we need to hire more teachers, police, and firemen, and we all agree that they are needed, but what we really need is private sector jobs that put money in the government treasury, so the money to pay these folks would not have to be borrowed from China. If the private sector was doing fine as the President claims, there would be money to hire public servants. Why do most folks not realize that the collapse of the housing market is the cause of the predicament that we are in. President Bush and Republican Senators, tried to rein in Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, but were fought tooth and nail. The Republicans were accused of being racist, denying affordable housing to the poor. The stupid plan cost millions of folks to loose a large portion of their wealth. Even those that owed nothing on their homes, lost a substantial amount of value of their homes. Liberals ideology makes me Ill. Before you vote for a liberal,check out the history of Argentina.
