A favorite political-economic subject that most commentators have been dealing with in the United States recently has been national health care, whether or not Obama care is the most socialist or communist superimposition on business since the tea tax imposed by the British.
The so called “Tea Party” now embedded, apparently totally within the Republican Party and at the central control of its political processes and approved pronouncements considers the “affordable health care act” to be the most communist organically exposed evil since Josef Stalin.
If we were to repeal Medicare, Medicaid and all associated national and state health program, what would the Republican Party with its internal tea party mechanism put in its place, “Private care?”
What would the Republican “Private-care” replacement of Medicare be, a voucher system? A voucher system, what would that be like? Who gets the vouchers and are they government distributed in the same manner as the Republicans distribute “jobs, job, jobs?”
Private health insurance, that’s the answer. That is the best way to assure that we remain a healthy country. The churches could take over the hospitals again as a basis for carrying for the poor, charge the doctors for use of the hospitals in order to pay their expenses and set up privileged facilities for the rich.
Those with private health insurance or with cash would get top care. Then charity money would go for taking care of the poor as it used to be “in the good old days” when Mr. Herbert Hoover, without dubious citizenship credentials was president of the United States.
That’s what conservatism means, “going back to the good old days” before the so-called “great depression.” That’s what the Tea Party “intellectuals,” the political board of directors of the Republican Party want, a pre-great depression economic system.
One of the great government health programs then was “prohibition” and the free enterprise “bootlegging days” activities that resulted from it. Those “was the real good old days.”
