Straight Talk On Health Care

Posted on: April 29, 2008

I subscribe to John McCain’s newsletter to see what they are telling their supporters. I also respond to these newsletters when I feel they are misleading.

John McCain’s Newsletter:

As you know, both Senators Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama are touting outrageously expensive and unrealistic universal health care plans – a government monopoly over health care.

My Response:

McCain, governments can be publicly regulated. Private oligopolies can’t. They just keep screwing us over and there are so many of them that if you smash one of them, it doesn’t make much of a difference. Allocating all of the accountability into a single place (the government) can only increase our chances that all Americans are covered fairly. We will all stand up and criticize and fix the same system instead of each of us taking on individual battles with individual companies with no coherent overall unity.

Also, if government-funded health care were such a problem, then why aren’t people in Canada, the UK, France, Sweden, and Norway (some of the most affluent nations in the world; the pound and the euro beat the dollar, my friend) complaining about it?

The only possible reason I could think of you promoting a plan like this is if you are getting incentives from private insurance companies towards your campaign.
