I really wish people that advocate for the universal health care thats coming (and make no mistake-thats where this is headed) had the opportunity to live for few years in the medicare/medicaid system.
And of course this doesnt even begin to touch the deficit situation. California has massivie soicial spending and it has put their state into a 50 billion dollar hole. The bailouts for California have not come with an expectation that they fix the system so they can continue to be just as fiscally irresponsible as before. Massachusettes also requires huge federal bailouts for its healthcare system. Rather than learn from thos mistakes we are rushing headlong into a federal system. If Obama is right and Medicare gets abused to the tune of 80 billion a year, try to imagine what levels of fraud will hit when the government, the same clowns that have already spent us 13.5 trillion into debt, are in charge of ALL healthcare.
