A loyal reader and former government employee, who asked to remain anonymous, wrote in to say that while she believes all Americans should have insurance, she is opposed to government run health care. I don't blame her for feeling that way about the government. If you've seen the way the government runs public housing (broken toilets, broken windows, no ac/heat, etc.), then you already know how the government will run health care.
I read your peice and for a change, I have to say I strongly agree with you. I wanted to share my experience of being under government care with you and hopefully if you're interested, then you share with your readers. Please leave out my name or give an alias.:)
After thinking long and hard and researching on this whole health care reform policy, I realized I don't want any government-run healthcare. Only thing O can do for me is regulate those sheisty insurance companies, get rid of this stupid pre-existing condition policy, remove stupid high ass deductibles for CTscans & other expensive tests, keep medicare/medicaid for older, disable & poor. It doesn't makes sense to have to pay $50 office visit for a simple annual pap smear exam under United Health Care.
After being under government and military rule for 4 years, I can say I don't trust those government sheisters. Keep complaining about pain in the little pinky toe, they'll say no more Motrin pill prescriptions & no more paying for x-rays & other tests & then you get a medical discharge & kicked out of the military. Why keep supporting & losing money on you, when you're worthless and your medical profile says you can't go out to the field nor combat nor excercise. You're useless to them. Disagree or reject the mandatory vaccinations (i.e. Anthrax) because of health hazard or concerns & you get kicked out. There are quite a lot of benefits and advantages in the govt. medical care as long as you or the problem is practical, attainable and can be corrected cheaply.
Anyone who know what it feels like when your whole paycheck is garnished because S1 screwed up in overpaying you and instead of correcting in increments, your whole paycheck is wiped clean because they want their money now, not in increments. Or they screwed up on your direct deposit or your pay grade increase & then you have to wait until the next pay period or two or three or four to get it corrected. I'm not saying this is what's going to happen in the civilian world but this is how they reason with things and it has nothing to do with your best interests.
I just don't trust it....*smh*
