Nanny State Health Care

If you believe the government is doing right by schools, roads, water, public safety, the budget, then you will love government medicine.

That is what AB 840 is about, total government control of your health care, your life. This is the nanny state with your life at stake.

Assemblyman Huff minces few words in describing what will happen to you and your family under this measure. A somewhat similar measure has just about bankrupted Tennessee and caused hundreds of health professionals to leave the State.

The French have raised taxes and still have a major deficit from their program. You didn’t want poor health care coverage to be cheap did you?

Want to wait weeks and months for needed procedures? You will love AB 840.

We keep telling you, but the big government-types who want to run your life for you don't care.

By the way, how's that Social Security system holding up financially? Are FICA taxes still 1%, like they were at the start of the program?

Freedom isn't free. Neither is socialized medicine.

This is the kind of stuff that makes me want to find a small deserted island in the South Pacific and move. And keep my money. And deal with whatever health problems may come on my own.

In Texas we got some good news on medicine.

“Several doctors who moved to Texas from other states said they were drawn by lower malpractice insurance rates.
The average malpractice insurance premiums in Texas have fallen by 21.3 percent since 2003, when lawmakers and voters implemented a $250,000 cap on non-economic damages such as pain and suffering in malpractice cases, according to Jon Opelt, who leads a group of doctors, hospitals and other health care providers that fought for the changes.”

It seems if you take lawyers out of the process it helps things!

How would you propose to handle legitimate malpractice claims?
