The Liberals (mostly Democrats) claim that we need a Government Paid Health Care Plan (commonly called Single-Payer or Public Option) because there are about 46 million Americans who do not have Health Insurance. Of that number, about 13 million are illegal aliens, who should not be eligible for Government Paid health insurance in the 1st place. There are also a number of uninsured who choose not to be covered, even though many of them could afford Health Insurance. These are mostly young adults who want to maximize their take home pay for whatever reason. The reality is that the number of people without Health Insurance is quite a lot smaller than 46 million.

It needs to be noted that because 46 Million in America do not have Health Insurance DOES NOT mean they don't have Health Care. All of them will receive treatment at any Hospital Emergency Room. They must be treated by law. Most of them also receive services at Clinics and Doctors Offices.

The Liberals would like you to believe that a Government Paid Health Insurance Plan would not drive the Private Insurance companies out of business. They claim that it would make the Private Insurers more competitive. The reality is that Private Insurance Companies cannot compete with a Government Plan, because the Government does not have to show a profit. In fact the Government can operate at a loss and once the Government Paid Health Insurance Plan goes into effect, the companies who furnish Health Insurance for their employees as a fringe benefit will not have any reason to continue to offer Health Insurance to their Employees. Some competition.

What is the Liberal Health Insurance agenda? Here are their own words.
Kathleen Sebelius, (Obama's Health and Human Services Secretary) in 2007

Senator Russ Feingold (D-WI)

Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky (D-IL 9th)

The Liberals want to create a system like the one in place in Canada. The Canadian Plan does not improve the quality of Health Care. In fact Health Care is rationed, denied and delayed under the Canadian plan. We do not need this type of Change. It is a step backward.

There are some things we do need to improve our Health Care in the US. Tort Reform is one of the best places to start.

Although you guide the reader to different thoughts you do not provide enough supportive information about your comparison to Canadian health care. It is just statements

The whole Canadian Health Care system is another story. I am sure the reader can find supportive information on their own, but Canadian Health Care aside, the fact is the plan(s) now in Congress will add to the National Debt. The smoke and mirrors trick of the Liberals is to show 4 years of benefits while collecting 7 years of increased taxes.

Benefits don't begin until the taxes have been preloaded. In simple terms what happens 10 years out is massive unsustainable, bankrupting National Debt to pay for National Health Care.

The proposals call for up to $250,000 in fines as well as 5 years in prison for not having the Minimum Health Care Plan as yet to be determined by The Secretary of Health, Education and Welfare.

The proposals also call for seeing not your doctor for your primary care, but a Nurse Practitioner or Physicians Assistant.

If this isn't rationing, what is?

Honestly, everyone is wrong. If you look at the real reason insurance companies charge so much is because of the medical expenses. Doctors, hospitals, pharmacies charge so much money over the cost for items it is stupid. They will charge up to the max the insurance company will pay. I know, because I am one of those who have seen meds here charged 300% more than in other countries. So I say, get the itemized bills from hospitals, doctors, pharmacies and compare the outrageous prices they charge and you will know why our insurance is so high. Attack the real problem instead of creating one.
