GOVT RUN HEALTHCARE SCARE. Government run healthcare scare people and I dont understand why. Do medicare, medicaid, WIC, SCHIP, Veterans healthcare and hospitals, county medical and dental clinics, rest homes, mental institutions, schools, DMV, CDC, FHA, FDA, military, law enforcement, etc which are all government run scare people also? I dont see people running away form the services and I dont see any private sectors closing because of they exist. There is no logical reasoning to be scared of government run healthcare except it has been brought forth by democrats. Opposition is nothing more than paranoia and it is passed on to the village idiots. Right wing paranoia just another scare tactic like duct tape and levels of color alert against terrorist attacks. BOO; SCARY PUBLIC OPTION. Why are right wing -nuts so afraid of Public Options? The right to chose if you want private HC or government run HC. If all the people that have PHC is happy with it, why would they leave something that make them so happy for a government run HC plan? If they are so happy and they keep it and a government run HC plan would not make any difference to the survival of their PHC plan.. And if PHC is as great as they say it is, no one will leave and PHC will be secure. Covering 47 million who do not have HC is going to cost and we all should help pay for it, just like we all help pay for wars and space programs that are bogus and full of fraud and waste of the taxpayers money, pay for healthcare of illegal alien who use ER for the primary care. Everyone who pay taxes, pay for something they do not use or they do not like. If we want to keep a democracy, we must pay taxes. Why are we using billions to set up democracy in Iraq and Afghanistan and we do not want to pay of healthcare for those of our own who do not have healthcare? But have no problem paying for healthcare for other countrys people. A democratic system cost money, lots of money and someone has to pay. Cannot have a democratic system without taxes. We cannot put 47 million into the PHC system and expect it to work effectively and affordable and not have death panels.. Government can do it better and cheaper then private sectors and that has been proven. Can you imagine private sector running some of the same institutions run by government? It would be a nation disaster. I would not leave my Medicare and Medicaid for any private healthcare plan because, first, they would not insure me because they could not afford to and make a profit.. I would be a high risk and eligible for a death panel. We pay for HC just as we pay for war and the space program, looking for Osama and water on the moon. Maybe those working now should opt out of paying into Medicare and Social Security and pay into a private HC plan and when the time comes to collect, see if they can deliver. They just might go bankrupt and you loose and have to collect SSI.
