For the 85 percent of Americans who already have health insurance, the Obama health plan is bad news. It means higher taxes, less health care and no protection if they lose their current insurance because of unemployment or early retirement.
President Obama's primary goal is to extend formal health insurance to those low-income individuals who are currently uninsured despite the nearly $300-billion-a-year Medicaid program. Doing so the Obama way would cost more than $1 trillion over the next 10 years. There surely must be better and less costly ways to improve the health and health care of that low-income group.
Why don't we take all those dollars funding these endless wars without end and divert them to a health care program which really works for We the People?
If a country like Belgium, for heaven's sake, can manage to take care of its people from an standpoint of healthcare, why can't the US?
