Comments on: The First Draft: Is the US healthcare debate making Americans feel better? http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2009/11/24/the-first-draft-is-the-us-healthcare-debate-making-americans-feel-better/ 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/2009/11/24/the-first-draft-is-the-us-healthcare-debate-making-americans-feel-better/comment-page-1/#comment-404809 Thu, 26 Nov 2009 20:11:00 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/frontrow/?p=22566#comment-404809 TC two questions that have not been addressed,do young people know that they are going to be taxed to pay a share of health care?the ones i know seem to think that it will be free with out any obligation from them.Is it going to be financed from taxes taken from peoples wages like what happens in England?with no consideration for age just a blanket payment on the amount you earn,which will make young people partly financing the care of older people and make the burden increase on the young and healthy.Will there be any deductible? which if not there will be a deluge of people wanting to see a doctor for the least minor thing.

This arrangement allowed a corrupt medical-pharmaceutical-insurance industry to be mmonopolized and driven by self interest of certain groups to the detriment of consumers and most cost effective technologies.Obamacare fixes none of that, just throws more money into the maw of the beast. Restructuring is best done by consumer dollars searching for best answers, not by misinformed fiat.

Only 38 percent want the health care fiasco mucking through congress. But Congress is going to force it down our throats anyway.It’s one thing to want health care reform, but very few people want what congress and the president want. People are screaming in opposition to the massive taxes and the increase to their health care premiums. Not only that, 24 million people won’t even be covered when this mess starts in2014. Health care for “all” Americans? Not even close.It is unsustainable and rationing is going to be the result. Look at what they are doing already by conditioning the public to accept less treatment by limiting mammograms and pap smears.It’s a travesty and Americans won’t stand for this government takeover.

Americans are feeling much worse, now that they see who really calls the shots.
