Video via Doug Powers at Michelle Malkin’s place and Gateway Pundit. DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz thinks the church should not be imposing values on
followers and employees, and yet it’s appropriate for the government to do so?
And mandate people pay for it? Obligatory video from yesterday.
I just love it when liberals throw out numbers “like 99 percent of …” You just know it’s total bull feathers.
One other solution to this issue would be to move away from employer-sponsored health care insurance. That way, individuals would be able to select individual policies that cover what they want covered. No mandates.
Of course, many will say that nobody would be able to afford insurance at current rates, but maybe we should also look at why we insist on coverage for preventative care? I’m not saying get rid of preventative care, but I think costs would drop dramatically for services like annual exams if we got rid of most of the overhead.
I think that costs would dramatically decrease and more options would be available if the government got out of the heath care business. I know it.
I know, I know … The nanny state thinks that if we don’t provide “free” coverage (cough, cough, gag, gag) for those services nobody will take the initiative to go get a check up. <rolleyes>
Update: I did go back and cross off “followers” from the first paragraph. Note the first commenter was more concerned with that, and seems totally fine with the point of this post – the government imposing values on taxpayers.
