Government Health Care

I have a friend who visited the USSR right after it broke up and stopped “officially” being Communist, but they still had government health care. She had brought her own needle when she went to get shots, because they reused the needles, but they ignored her when she tried to give it to him. They gave her a shot with a needle that the doctor had used many times. Then the doctor put the cotton ball that he used to wipe the needle on a table with many others, so that he could count how many shot he gave. As my friend walked out another person went in and got a shot with the same needle. Thankfully my friend didn’t get any disease from the reused but she could have.

This is just one example of the problems with government health care. So why do we want government health care? There is a simple answer that even the most hardcore conservative can understand: it is easier! It is because of this that we will resort to worse health care. Famous 1850’s French essayist Frederick Bastiat said this:

“Now, labor in itself is pain, and a man being naturally inclined to avoid pain, it follows, and history proves it, that whenever [government programs] is less burdensome than labor, it prevails; and neither religion nor morality can, in this case, prevent it from prevailing.”

Thus as Obama’s new health care plan is easier than paying for health care everybody wants it. I just have one word of warning Frederick Bastiat said:

“It is the nature of men to rise against the injustice of which they are victims.”

We will rise up hopefully peacefully but possible with a revolution. It is my hope that we will see the injustice and stop it before it leads to a war.

  1. As you commented on my blog I’d much rather see them leave healthcare alone, but if we must have something I’d prefer the Republican version. It will mean way less governmental control. You know the left wont rest till they try and push something through so I’d rather it be Tom Coburns Patient’s Choice Act 2009. Thank you for the comment.

    • I agree that giving the gov less control instead of more is better but it is my belief that giving them any control will allow them to slowly gain more and more control, until they control all of health care.
      Thank you for your time,
