“Doctors are not servants of their patients, they are traders like everyone else in a free society and they should bear that title proudly considering the crucial importance of the services they offer.” – Ayn Rand
Under socialism people are a liability, under capitalism people are an asset. Under socialized medicine the patient is an expensive nuisance, in a medical free market the patient is a customer and so an opportunity to make money and improve your trade.
We have not had a free market in the medical field in a VERY long time. We already have socialized medicine and the problems we are experiencing are a direct result of that. Our care is and has been determined by either government or insurance bureaucrats. If you have anything unusual like lyme disease you will have to outside the system to get effective treatment, otherwise you get the bureaucratic shuffle.
The political elite know the problems they have created will not be solved with more of the same poison that caused them and they do not care. This issue it is not about medical care but expanding government into every nook and cranny of our lives. Soon we will be huddled in the corner like Winston in 1984 for a tiny bit of privacy and if you do get a broken leg your politics will determine if you get it set or if you have to rely on sticks and duct tape.
It doesn’t matter if obamacare is overturned, because we already have government controlled healthcare and the sheeple love it because they are not directly responsible for the bill…. they are too indoctrinated to understand that if you are not directly responsible then you are also not in control.
Even if obamacare is overturned and obamanation is thrown out of office we have romneycare waiting in the wings.
“If people let government decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as are the souls of those who live under tyranny.” Thomas Jefferson
Tyranny is the path we are on.
