Starting next month, if I don't have a health insurance policy I will get fined because of Mitt Romney. Back when I had the best health insurance a government contractor could get, I got bit by a spider and I still had to pay about $7000 just to live. So I'm going to have to pay about $250 a month on this piece of crap health insurance industry that puts profit over actual health care and will do just about anything to avoid actually assisting with your medical bills.
The opponents of socialized medicine argue that if it implemented, the quality of care will decrease because of minimized financial incentives for doctors. Not only is this not the case in many countries poorer than America that have nationalized health care, but thelast time I went to the doctor he reached in his desk and pulled out a Zoloft starter kit, whipped out a pen with a Pfizer logo on it, and prepared to write me a prescription for a drug designed to make me less worried about the state of health care. How is a less costly, government-run health care system somehow inferior to this profit-driven, more expensive model?
I'm just not sure it's a good idea to let companies run certain services because they're just too greedy. Like air traffic control and public education. And the Military and the Food and Drug Administration... oh, wait.
I thought I was better off just being careful and eating healthy. Guess not. At least Mitt gets to say he didn't raise taxes, because when you're forced to give more money to a privately-owned company it's not technically raising taxes.
