As time passes Obama gets more and more desperate to create government health care. Though no politician will admit it Obama’s “health care REFORM” will eventually destroy all other options, and lead to a government takeover of our health care. Michael D. Tanner of the CATO Institution wrote these three big lies of Obamacare:
1) “If you like your current health-care plan, you can keep it.”
“In the end, millions of Americans would be forced out of the insurance they have today and into the government plan. Businesses, in particular, would have every incentive to dump their workers into the public plan. The actuarial firm the Lewin Group estimates that as many as 118.5 million people, roughly two-thirds of those with insurance today, would be shifted from private to public coverage.”
2) “You will pay less.”
The Congressional Budget Office has made it clear that the reform plans now being debated will increase overall health-care costs. … The final health- care bill is expected to cost more than $1 trillion over the next 10 years. That means much higher taxes, and not just for the wealthy.”
3) “Quality will improve.”
“Anyone who thinks a government takeover of the health-care system will improve quality of care has only to look at the health-care programs the government already runs: The Veterans Administration is overwhelmed with problems, Medicaid is notorious for providing poor quality at a high cost — and Medicare has huge gaps in coverage.”
Many people believe that we need health care reform, and I am one of those people, but I believe that the government does not need to have any role in such a reform. Stand up for the free market! Stop a Government Health Care Reform!
