So you want the government to manage your health care?

Before all of you folks that are so adamant that the Obama/Pelosi/Ried consortium health plan is the greatest thing since sliced bread let me give you two examples of government management of private enterprise.

First lets look at "Cash for Clunkers". The original monies allocated was to last for one month. The estimate of money needed was so bad that it actually lasted 4 days. Now each $4500 grant actually costs the government $6000. That is right $2500 in administrative fees. You say no problem! Mr. Obama just allocated more money. Just today there were two Dealers on the news explaining some of the problems they are having with the program. One dealer from St. Louis has over a million dollars outstanding from cars he has sold under the program and the Government has not reimbursed him for one cent. He has had to suspend sales as he can not afford to continue to operate with no revenue. The second dealer has submitted 98 applications for reimbursement. 96 have been returned by the government marked "denied". Many dealers are dropping out of the program because the government is simply just not paying.

Second example: In the state Nevada prostitution is legal. The most profitable brothel in the state was the Mustang Ranch. However, the Mustang Ranch got into a little trouble with IRS and could not come to a reasonable agreement with them. Therefore, the government took over the management of the Mustang Ranch. Yest that is correct the United States Government was in the business of running a brothel. Now remember, and this is factual, that the Mustang Ranch was the most profitable brothel in Nevada. In less than 12 months after the government took over the Mustang Ranch was forced to declare bankruptcy.

Mr. Obama himself continues to talk about how that medicare is so corrupt, full of fraud and mismanaged. This is another example of government management. I suggest that before we allow them to have the whole enchalada we should require them to fix what they already administer.

Now I ask you, if the government can not even manage a who-- house, why would you want them in the health care business.

With well over 1000 differant health-care options what will one more in the pipeline do? That is unless it is so large it eclipses the other options. Think about it.

Nobody said The Government will Manage Health Care Its creating a Co-Op and Giving You a Choice Its as simple as that.

I agree.

To the people who think this program is co-op and is "giving people the choice" and rainbows and butterflies, think again. I wouldn't say that without thoroughly reading the bill. Even if you think you have a choice or keep your same plan until it eventually can not compete with the government, the quality of your healthcare will be compromised. You will have to wait longer to see a doctor, you may only be able to see a PA, and a specialist shortage will be accquired accounting for extremely long waits to be seen.

What is making the American people queasy is a Congress that does not pay attention to those who hired them in the first place. What is making the American people queasy is a Congress that does not do the job for which it was hired. What is making the American people queasy is the possibility of a healthcare program run by the Federal Government after all, we all know how well the government has run the postal service, the department of motor vehicles and the public school system

The Mustang Ranch is a very poor example. Who on earth would go to such an enterprise when run by the Government. Be real.

Medicare itself works fine. People are misusing it and to trace it is
extremely difficult and costly and the People who commit fraud know it.

The Population in this country has been against having an official Identity
Card for every Individual living here. A system that other developed countries have had forever. Anyone abroad can be traced without great difficulty. Here, one can have any number of names and identification and rake in Welfare, Medicare, Childcare and whatever else is available.
