    Default Great quote about socialized healthcare

    Are you willing to spend time studying the issues, making yourself aware, and then conveying that information to family and friends? Will you resist the temptation to get a government handout for your community? Realize that the doctor's fight against socialized medicine is your fight. We can't socialize the doctors without socializing the patients. Recognize that government invasion of public power is eventually an assault upon your own business. If some among you fear taking a stand because you are afraid of reprisals from customers, clients, or even government, recognize that you are just feeding the crocodile hoping he'll eat you last.

    Actually, I know two doctors that are in favor of reform. They are sick and tired of insurance companies denying authorization for tests that they feel are necessary. I can't say that the bills I see have anything to do with "socialized medicine."

    Funny, the quote fails to mention the role of health insurance or the pharmaceutical industry that continue to record huge profits while our health care costs have doubled in the last 10 years. How long do we let this supposedly "competitive" system alone?

    Could someone please cite specific references in the current bill or in the basic guidelines that President Obama set forth which are forms of socialism?

    Is all insurance a form of socialism by whatever definition you use?

    Yeah, everybody bitches about "BIG OIL" and "BIG PHARMA," what about BIG GOVT??

    How much has their (govt.) income increased over the last 6 months??
    (actually, 15 years)


    I know, that's different, right?

    Who is the largest employer in the country, your state, your county and your city.

    Find out, it ain't "BIG OIL" or "BIG PHARMA!!"

    Well, it looks like the old bait and switch has worked...instead of talking about health care reform, now we are talking about health insurance reform and those nasty insurance companies!

    If there needs to be reform, let congress pass a couple of laws to allow/force insurance companies to insure in all states and to not reject preexisting conditions among other reforms. Why a complete government take over of health care and head to head competition with private companies??? Both sound like socialism to me and further intrusion by the governemnt into my personal business...thank you big government, your job is defending the country not imposing itself on individuals and direct competion with industry of any kind.
    When it quits being fun...we retire!

    Now why did you have to go and do that.....

    you know we cant function with out BIG GOVT....

    come on, I need them to provide for me....tell me what to do, when to do, and who to do it with....I need them because I am to stupid to know what to do for myself, SO I need to allow them into my pocket so they can take my money and do it for me.

    you can forget all about Uncle Sam...now its BABYSITTER SAM..at least my Uncle Sam would let me go and do things I wanted to do and if things went wrong my UNCLE would say, you better fix them YOURSELF...now my babysitter says come on over and rest your head little baby, government is gonna make it all better..
