Rep. Jankowski: Bill is a Trojan Horse for nationalization of healthcare

Posted by iusbvision on April 28, 2009

Nationalized healthcare is a disaster around the rest of the world so why would we want to copy them? We need a unique American solution for our health care problems. Our Government has spent 12.8 Trillion buying up banks while Americans are losing their homes and losing their jobs. They are incompetent.

When the IRS siezed the “Mustang Ranch” brothel in Nevada they could not run it to make a profit and sold it for a fraction of its value (LINK). Does anyone honestly believe that government can run banks, car companies or healthcare and keep costs down? They may artificially keep prices down for a time, but not costs. Washington DC public schools spend $14,000 per year per student and their reading and math conpetency rates from 13%-22% from school to school according to ABC news. The Democrats shut down the $7,500 DC voucher program because the students were excelling and the failed teachers union wanted the money for themselves, this hurting those children (LINK).


Rep. Jan Schakowsky tells the audience that the bill is a Trojan horse for single-payer, and that she’s not interested in waging a “principled fight”, as Verum Serum discovers:


How about we listen to someone who has lived under nationalized health care:

    I’m getting close to thinking that a nationalized health care might be the lesser of two evils. I’m well aware of the wait times, the terrible service, and I’ve heard of few of the horror story anecdotes. Sadly, I could probably top a lot of those with my sister’s treatment in the tricare system. (that’s the military health care system for those who don’t know). The sad fact of the matter is bad care is better than no care. If a family cannot afford insurance, then they cannot afford health care. It becomes more and more true every month. I blame the runaway insurance industry for the costs of health care. They are making profits on both sides, the hospitals and the patients. I’m not against making money, but when hospitals turn people away or deny treatment for insurance reasons, that gets to me. I’m not saying there shouldn’t be oversight, but that’s a job that belongs to a watchdog agency, not a privately run business looking to turn a profit off of people’s suffering.

    I did like what you had to say about coming up with an American solution. It reminds me about a time in America that I’ve only read about in my social studies books. America was innovative, understood the idea of responsibility and worked hard to succeed, not looked for others to blame their failure on. My “cure” for the current health care system would be an overhaul of not only the insurance system surrounding healthcare, but also the FDA, which seems more interested in protecting drug companies profits than actually getting effective cures (that’s right, cures, not treatments) out on the markets.

    We need to stop making sickness into an industry.
