    Obama declares that it's time to fix health care

    GREEN BAY, Wis. - Surrounded by supportive citizens in the heartland, President Barack Obama challenged lawmakers back in Washington who criticize his proposed health care overhaul. "What's the alternative?" he said Thursday.


    What is the alternative?

    Government inaction. That alone would trend costs downward. Government involvement is called inflation.

    Since too much government broke health care, why are people expectantly awaiting even more government to fix it?

    The alternative is less government, of course.

    Not to mention the fact that The Messiah is a sudden convert to the Pay-As-You-Go notion of government, and he's planning on nationalizing 14% of a 15T dollar economy in one swoop, which means The Messiah will have to raise 2.1T dollars in taxes the year he does it.

    It will save it from becoming unreformable.

    I told you.
    Remove the idiot who wants to socialize it so that he can't spend trillions more.

    Sooner the better.

    Like private health care will just cease to exist....
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    So is it your contention that health care was working great prior to Jan
    20th?

    Again, I ask. What is the alternative? We can sit here and bash Obama on one hand and have people defend him on the other. The question isn't whether or not you agree with Obama. The question is "what is the alternative"? What would you recomend as a viable alternative to the health care situation in this country? Gov't hasn't been socializing health care for decades. yet in the free market, we now have a system that doesn't work.

    Do you have a better plan, or do you just bash Obama in every post?

    Re: Obama declares that it's time to fix health care

    Government may help in making it affordable at the clinic or hospital but the cost is way to high at the government level, IMHO.

    Health care will be fixed by allowing it to be privatized and helping remove the outrageous inflation imposed by huge insurance companies with the goal to strong arm anyone not wanting to invest in insurance.
