Quality of care for elderly/Euthanasia (end-of-life care)
Illegal Aliens “Rights to Services”
Cost, deficit issues, taxes
Overall quality of service (managed care verses European style)
Possibility of governmental intrusion
Freedom of choice diminishing
And so many others
My contention is shouting doesn’t help. Liberal bureaucrats say “yes” or “no” to anything. The key for them: sign the deal, then legislate and judicate incrementally. They will promise the world and demonize opponents as mean-spirited. They will agree to any one of those issues: “Abortion, sure, we will make sure the government doesn’t get involved”. Several years later we are calling it ‘quality of life’ issues where the health of the baby and mother are at stake. Libs can promise anything—it’s not their money. It’s easy to say ‘yes’ or ‘no’ to anything.
Don't get hung up on those issues. We call it “insurance reform”; it’s really “democracy reform”—that’s what's at stake, our fundamental freedoms as a democracy. Keep using the word ‘socialism’ that’s what hyper-liberalism is. (<--notice the period)
I’m all for outreaches, help for the poor, truly reforming the health system but NOT for socialized medicine—no thank you. All the above will lose, but good “Red, White, and Blue” Americans do not want to be Socialists. If Americans expose this group of bureaucratic flakes as teetering Socialists, we may just get a new congress and President – then we get back to a democratic, capitalist system and true health process reform.
