Healthcare

      • The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism. But, under the name of ‘liberalism,’ they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”
        – Norman Thomas, U.S. Socialist Party presidential candidate 1940, 1944 and 1948

Tort reform and competitive insurance options across state lines are just a start.  Insurance companies should not be allowed to buy hospitals.  It is a serious conflict of interest.  We need to do something about the illegal immigration crises, too.  Emergency rooms are also used to treat the smallest of ailments for illegal’s, indigents and the uninsured.  It is the most expensive form of healthcare and the working middle class ends up paying the bill.  Unless there is a severe emergency or the patient is in tremendous pain, then these people should wait for the free clinics to open.  I don’t want to seem cold and callous, but we have serious financial problems and these issues must be addressed and dealt with.  People who are uninsured need to take some responsibility for the expense they cause, too.  A wage garnishment is one solution to help them take more responsibility.  Possibly deduct just a little more than what it would cost them to be insured.  Currently, if someone comes down with a disease and becomes uninsurable, they can use their COBRA insurance for just one year, then they have to go through their savings to qualify for Medicaid.  I suggest that insurance companies keep them on the groups insurance at the same rate until they qualify for alternative coverage.  Socialized medicine is not effective financially nor will help develop new innovations.  Again, this is an issue that I want the public to chime in on.  I honestly believe, as a group, the average American can come up with better solutions than our elected officials who are tainted by political donations and lobbyists.
