Health Care Reform - Seen through the eyes of the typical American Citizen

Health Care ReformThe same is true of health care. A corvette is not a right, nowhere in our constitution does it state that we have the right to life liberty and a Corvette. Nor does it state we have the right to life liberty and government provided healthcare or government healthcare insurance. These are privileges we earn through hard work.

We can probably all agree to provide for or help those who cannot care for themselves, for example those who are physically or mentally handicapped or otherwise disabled and who simply cannot provide for themselves, we may even agree as a society to provide for those who defend our freedoms and fight for us in war (ex. Military veterans), or even possibly our senior citizens to a certain extent. Certainly, on a smaller scale states or local communities can decide to implement programs for these individuals or situations, but we do not all agree that healthcare is a right to be afforded to everyone and that should forcibly be funded at the federal level by those who work hard.

In addition we do not all agree that those who work hard or earn more should give to everyone else through a government run and MANDATED programs. This is simply absurd and not what America is all about, nor is it what made America great. In fact it is taking or taxing those who work hard or earn more to provide for others who may not is stealing. It is akin to Robin Hood, stealing from the rich to give to the poor. It's if justified by creating crises or playing on peoples emotions or pain points.

Frankly, many people do not believe that government involvement in health care would be beneficial for individuals, health care professionals, the relationships between them, or the quality and quantity of timely care that patients would receive. The fact remains, there is absolutely no program that the government is running, or has ever run, that has been on budget, reduces costs, and which impels us to trust the government to run or manage such a huge portion of our economy and private lives as health care.

Many, if not most Americans believe that government has no business in our health care. Many Americans recognize that government intervention will lead to rationing or procedures and care, higher taxes, potentially no cost savings, all the while leading us down a path towards socialism. Without question it will lead to larger and larger government which is exactly what our founding fathers wanted to prevent.

In conclusion, this health care debacle is nothing more than a direct usurpation of freedoms by an ever expanding and growing government. That in itself is dangerous. The elite would love to hand down their seats in the congress to their children and have special privileges, special insurance and medical care, and force "we the people" into dependency on government from cradle to grave, and into government run programs. We urge you, don't allow it folks. This is exactly what our founding fathers feared with a large and growing government. It is the reason the United States of America fought for its independence to overthrow the oppressive rule of England, the high taxation without representation, and the insane policies of King George at the time of succession.
