Health Care Costs by George Malkmus
Medical Doctor Says Government Responsible For High Costs
Rep. Paul Broun, R-Ga, a physician who serves on the House Science and Technology Committee and the House Homeland Security Committee had the following to say about Health Care Reform:
“Government intrusion into the system has caused a marked escalation in the price of health insurance, drugs in the drugstore, hospital bills and doctor bills – all healthcare costs are being forced upward in a very skyrocketing way because of government intrusion. The marketplace unencumbered by taxes and regulations is the best way to ensure the best quantity and quality of all healthcare services”
Anything Government Gives the People It Must First Take From the People
There are no free lunches in life. Everything has a cost. Our country was so established that everyone was responsible for themselves. In more recent years we have been told that we are not only responsible for ourselves, but our neighbors also. Thus if neighbor doesn’t have something it is society’s responsibility to provide it.
The only way our government can have the funds necessary to guarantee all who do not have or cannot afford health insurance to have it, is to take from those who have and give it to those who have not.
This effort to take care of all citizens as well as cover the incredible waste of worthless spending and earmarks has resulted in debt that will be passed on to our children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. That debt is increasing by the second. For a vivid picture of what this debt is and how rapidly it is increasing, visit US Debt Clock.org.
