Re: Health Insurers Funded Chamber Attack Ads
Posted by Thomas Paine on 4/14/10
Doctors across the country are already refusing to take new
Medicaid/Medicare patients because the negotiated fees are well
below treatment costs. This is not a problem of the insurance
companies, this is a problem created by big government forcing
cost cutting measures on a system that cannot possibly survive
without either raising treatment costs or reducing operating
Forcing cost cutting measures without reducing the cost of
delivery only spells one thing - bankrupting the US medical
industry. Of course, our fearless leaders in Washington donít
know how to balance a checkbook, therefore, operating within a
budget is quite foreign to them. When the checks and balances
are in, their only recourse will be to raise taxes. Forget
conservative ideals and fiscal restraint; just raise taxes and
increase the size of government - itís the progressive way after
The best place to reduce healthcare costs is to implement
significant tort reform - eliminate defensive medicine practices
and reduce liability. Lower the cost of operations, and
treatment costs will follow.
Come November, We the People will take back our government from
those who seem dedicated to our demise. Vote like your life,
liberty and pursuit of happiness depended on it...
