President Obama, in his weekly radio address, was forced to deal with the truth that is coming out about his health plan.
So, let me explain what reform will mean for you. And let me start by dispelling the outlandish rumors that reform will promote euthanasia, cut Medicaid, or bring about a government takeover of health care. That’s simply not true. This isn’t about putting government in charge of your health insurance; it’s about putting you in charge of your health insurance.Under the reforms we seek, if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. If you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan.
Calling something”not true” like The Health Care Chart that Will Scare YOU to DEATH (Ezekiel Emanuel’s Complete Lives System) flies in the face of reality.
The whole notion of “keeping your doctor” is a red herring. The issue is not if you can keep your doctor, but if your doctor can provide you with the services that you need!
You will only be able to “keep” your health plan as long as your employer provides it. Once your employer dumps you on the public option, you will be stuck with the Government tellign you what you can get. There are many on the left who argue that Medicare is already a single payer system, so whats the big deal. Let me tell you – its a VERY big deal. Do you know anyone on Medicaid, that “other” government run health plan. Doctors must make a profit in order to stay in business. Right now, doctors make more money on private pay patients than Medicaid or Medicare patients. Once every patient becomes a “low profit” patient, rationing will occur – either by fewer doctors entering the medical field due to it being less economically attractive, or doctors limiting their patient populations of low value patients to ensure they can still make money.
No matter what, you are far better off buying your insurance ON YOUR OWN, and negotiating the plan that works best for YOU.
