Citizen!! Ration Thyself!!

This isn’t rocket science. You have 3 choices folks. You can have your health care rationed by;

1. The Government (Single Payer)
2. Your Insurance Company (Third Payer) or
3. You.

There is going to rationing in any event. Grow up and take control of your own health care, or have those decisions made by Obamunism and Obamunists. The answers are out there. Learn them, and fight for them.

Once Patients Pay, Health Costs Will Fall

Health Care: The push to reform the system is going in exactly the wrong direction. Instead of minimizing patient involvement in payment for treatment, Washington should be seeking to increase patients’ role.

The cost of American medical care is so high that it’s thought by some to be a tragedy. About one-sixth of the economy is made up of health care expenditures. On average, each American runs up $7,290 a year in medical bills. Bringing down the costs — without sacrificing quality of care — is a reasonable objective.

But supporters of the health care legislation recently passed in Congress have lost sight of the spending problem — if they ever had any clear concept at all.

There are two reasons why per-person health care spending in the U.S. is far higher than even Switzerland at $4,417 a year, or Luxembourg at $4,162, which rank second and third in the world.

One, America has the best health care on the planet. The smartest doctors, the finest in diagnostic equipment, top-flight treatment and advanced drugs don’t come cheap.

Two, our system encourages overuse. And, as any ninth-grade economics student will confirm, an increase in demand forces prices higher.
