SOCIALIZED MEDICINE II
Only in a totally free society does a person have the freedom to choose a doctor, a treatment, and where and when the treatment will take place. A government healthcare system, without doubt, will ultimately take all those freedoms away.
The Socialized Medicine Bill will take away freedom of choice. It will stifle the ability of insurance companies to compete against the government plan; it will limit people only to the government’s plan. As the Socialized Medicine machine spins it’s web over the entire medical profession, doctors will lose their choice and come under pressure to quit private practice and move into HMOs, clinics, hospitals, then finally into facilities totally operated by the government in order to survive financially. As time passes, medical professionals will be ordered to do as the system demands, even if it is contrary to their own medical judgment.
Most of today’s Americans are healthy because of numerous related factors. These will come under the “oversight” of the government’s Socialized Health Care: food, housing, stress factors, supplements, family counseling, school nurse programs in all schools, public and private.
In addition to controlling medical care and personnel, Socialized Medicine interferes in several other sectors of society. We are beginning to see articles preparing us for further government intrusion under the name of health care. It is hardly a leap to forecast that the health care bureaucracy will start manufacturing reasons why they should dictate what foods we may eat, whether our children must be forced to take mood drugs, whether an employee must be forced to get psychiatric counseling.
Interfering in family affairs with enforced counseling to reduce stress would be part of the process. This type of interference could even be accomplished in the workplace. Stress reduction is part of the new law. ObamaCare threatens to unite with the Department of Education to provide medical counseling and treatment in the government schools, even in the private-run institutions, using the health of the students as a pretext. Under such regulations, vaccinations would become mandatory, and birth control, abortion, and a series of other matters that are the rights of the parents to decide would be mandated.
Already there is strong government pressure to take away our freedom to buy food supplements and vitamins. The government wants to regulate this industry and decide which vitamin you may take. And they want to force you to get a prescription to buy your food supplement. (Unless they have outlawed that supplement altogether.)
In the end, there will be little or no choice about whom to see for treatment, where you go for treatment, when you get treatment, what kind of treatment you receive, or whether you even receive treatment.
There will not even be a choice whether you have medical coverage.
The way the Obama measure reads, you will have coverage, or you will be fined for not having it. And the fine will be substantial.
FIGHT FOR FREEDOM. REPEAL THIS EVIL BILL. TALK TO YOUR FAMILY MEMBERS, YOUR FRIENDS, YOUR NEIGHBORS, YOUR CO-WORKERS, STRANGERS. TELL THEM THE DEMOCRATS RAMMED THIS EVIL BILL DOWN THE THROATS OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. TO REPEAL THIS BILL WE MUST KICK ALL THE DEMOCRATS OUT. EVERY ONE MUST VOTE REPUBLICAN IN NOVEMBER 2010.
