Short lesson in the why of single payer health care. Beyond the canard that health care is a right, and beyond some sort of compassion for the less fortunate, why?
Like many on the right are so fond of saying: “Single payer (socialized) health care has collapsed or is in the process of collapsing everywhere it has been tried!” But, they are wrong. It has been a resounding success in exactly the way it was intended.
The goal of socialized medicine is to drastically cut medical costs which proponents claim are so high that society, nay, their very country is being greatly harmed. Pressure is brought and socialized medicine comes to pass. Then comes the rationing.
But where is the success you ask? By rationing care and dugs, by creating long wait times, the effect is a generally decreasing population of the under classes. This has worked every where, except perhaps China where they have a huge population and traditional medicine to offset most of the effects.
The second intended effect diminish the number of people who look outside of themselves for a higher power. When someone is in extreme back pain, they rush to the emergency room and a pain killer is prescribed, living on relatively pain-free. However, under a socialized program, after waiting an average of 23 hours in the emergency room, they are told that no pain killer is available for back pain as it is too costly. Despair!
That person under socialized medicine cannot pray to a higher power for a miracle – it is not going to happen. Lose of faith begins to take hold, since he only higher power available is the State which has decided no pain killer for them. No appeal. Only euthanasia or living with the pain are options.
All these effects are seen in countries which have adopted socialized medicine: lose of faith and correspondingly empty churches, high abortion rates, general apathy, and rapidly declining birth rate to the point of national extinction.
In recent years, the US has managed to more than replace it’s national population, but with socialized medicine, expect to see the US go the way of all of Europe and Russia – into extinction.
The political power elite, however, will continue to fair well as the underclasses diminish because they will always exempt themselves from the rules they make. Case in point: one Democrat Representative favoring socialized medicine held a town meeting. People were irate at his stance and shouted at him they did not want socialized medicine. His response? He vowed to return to Congress more determined than ever to push socialized medicine through.
This is typical of the political power elite. They believe they are smarter, wiser than anyone else in the world – after all they are Americans. They firmly believe that where socialized medicine has failed, like communism, they only have to tweet and tinker to make it work. They fail to remember in their arrogance and extreme hubris that they are only human, not god-like, and will fail like all before them and to suffer the same fate.
