Edited to add: Someone in the comments asked if this bridge was built by the Bush Administration. I'd rather look at it as a metaphor for what health care will become if Billary Clinton becomes president and shoves universal health care down our throats.
Universal health care will not be good for our health.
Is the DMV efficient?
How about the Social Security Administration?
The U.S. Post Office?
The Veterans Administration?
No? Then neither will your health care providers when and if universal health care is enacted.
I will admit that our health care system needs some help, but at least I can get a MRI done without waiting for a year or more like people do in Canada or England. My father-in-law was able to have his hips replaced without waiting until he broke one. He now has a better quality of life and does not live in constant, severe pain as he did prior to having surgery. A friend of my wife has a family member who waited several years in England to have a much needed hip replaced, and was only able to do so after falling and breaking her hip.
Do you think the idea of working for the government will attract the best and brightest nurses and doctors? No, it will not.
Maybe, just maybe, if we were tougher on illegal immigration a HUGE burden would be lifted off of our resources. Oh, but that would be cruel.
Why do people want the government to take care of them? What is happening to this once great country? I used to think my dad was crazy when he said we were becoming a bunch of communists, but now I'm not so sure.
Mirriam-Webster - definition of communism:
a: theory advocating elimination of private property b: a system in which goods are owned in common and are available to all as needed.
I prefer to live my life with the freedom to make choices, and to live without a few things than to have the government tell me, "oh sorry you cannot have that life saving procedure done at this time because you are not quite sick enough yet...come back when you are on your death bed and it's too late." Or to have them tell my wife, mom, sisters, "you cannot have that lump removed from your breast at this time because the cancer is not far enough advanced."
Having the government bail us out of everything is not the answer. It is not freedom.
