Ron Paul's Health Care Bill

[COMMENT:  This makes enormous sense to me.  A genuine freemarket is the Godly way to have an economy, not the dishonest and deceptive "free trade" about which globalists and conniving politicians talk about, which is a fascist collusion between big international corporations and government. 

Government is to be our referee, not a participant in commerce.  An honest referee cannot participate in the game -- total conflict of interest.   Get government out of commerce and welfare and education.  Totally.  Back to being the referee for society.     E. Fox]

Subject: Ron Paul's health care bill
 
Why we need Congressman Paul's bill . . .

The federal government owes $53.3 trillion in unfunded liabilities for Medicare and Social Security. Instead of figuring out how to fund these commitments, the politicians keep promising more spending, especially on health care.

It's important to understand that government health care spending is the real cause of America's health care crisis. Government already pays for nearly half of all medical care in this country. This makes government the primary determiner of health care prices . . .
 
Health care costs are soaring because the prices are set by bureaucrats and lobbyists, instead of by free market competition.

To better understand how damaging this is just look at what's happened to the cost and quality of Lasik eye surgery, which isn't funded by the government, or insurance . . .
 
According to the federal government's Bureau of Labor Statistics the price for Lasik surgery has dropped from $2,106 in 1999 to $1,626 in 2004! The quality has also improved dramatically, even though the cost has fallen.
 
The same could be true for all health care procedures if prices were set by free market competition, instead of by bureaucrats and lobbyists.

But the problem gets even worse. Government tax polices have created incentives that tie most people's health insurance policies to their employer. This means "your" insurance companies work for your boss, and not for you. Losing your job could mean a catastrophic loss of medical care.

America's health care crisis is entirely the creation of the politicians in Congress. And now they want to use the crisis they've created to grab still more power and money, at a time when the government is facing a looming bankruptcy.

Congressman Ron Paul has introduced a bill that would solve these problems, immediately. His "Comprehensive Health Care Reform Act" (H.R. 3343) would . . .
  Of course, neither the insurance companies nor the health care lobbyists want these changes, so you will have to fight for them. Do three things . . .
