Comments on: The First Draft: H-Day http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2009/10/13/the-first-draft-h-day/ Tracking U.S. politics Wed, 16 Nov 2016 03:39:51 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: brian lee http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2009/10/13/the-first-draft-h-day/comment-page-1/#comment-400999 Thu, 15 Oct 2009 02:10:43 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/frontrow/?p=21171#comment-400999 A classic example of what will happen with a government single payer system was amplified for me today.I walk my dogs in a park which has it,s upkeep contracted out to a private company.They employ a young man who on his own manages the park and does a great job in the process.Occasionally the city “Parks and Recreation”crews show up and no one seems to know what they do! Today two trucks pulled up and 6 city employees got out,and the 2 hours i was there all they did was lean against their trucks doing nothing apart from the occasional “high fives”.Welcome to government heath care!

I disagree with the government backing it and REQUIRING everyone to have some form of ins. or they will be fined xxxx.xx amt. of money. I’m healthy and shouldn’t have to pay for someone’s smoking or fat habit in the long run. Competition is a good thing, but it’s not the government’s job to be the competition. Put regulations on health ins. companies sort of like auto ins. comanies and require them to go from state to state. This isn’t that difficult

It needs a swift dose of freedom and liberty.

We were bombarded with the idea that competition is good for business and manufacturing to keep prices down. If fact this competition has resulted in the moving of our manufacturing to offshore countries where the wages and enviroment requirements are much lower than our own. According to the above theory, this is good. So why isn’t a public option for healthcare not good when it comes to competition within the sphere of insurance companies?
