www.house.gov CampaignForLiberty.com As the healthcare debate rages on, there is one reality that even the proponents of this hostile takeover of healthcare by government cannot ignore and that is money. The government simply does not have the money for a new, expansive, public healthcare plan. The country is in a deep recession that will deepen even further with the coming collapse of the commercial real estate market. The last thing we need is for government to increase and expand taxes to pay for another damaging, wasteful program. Foreigners are becoming less enthusiastic about buying our debt, and creating another open-ended welfare program when we cannot pay for what is already in place, will not help. Champions of socialized medicine want to tax the rich, tax businesses that already cannot afford to provide health plans to employees, and tax people who dont want to participate in the governments scheme by buying an approved healthcare plan. Presumably, all these taxes are to induce compliance. This is not freedom, nor will it improve healthcare. There are limits to how much government can tax before it kills the host. Even worse, when government attempts to subsidize prices, it has the net effect of inflating them instead. The economic reality is that you cannot distort natural market pressures without unintended consequences. Market forces would drive prices down. Government meddling negates these pressures, adds regulatory compliance costs and layers of

      Can I start my own private army then? And then bill Americans for my protection?

      Ron Paul tells it like it is. I am proud to say I voted for him. His words should be ringing true to every American.

      I agree we cant afford a Gov health care option. But, Red kinda gets the feeling even if we could, Ron Paul would be against it anyway. Because he’s simply anti government. Why doesn’t he just admit it; he’s a Republican.

      Except for one thing; here in the U.S., were Capitalists. Always have been, always will be. Those who think otherwise need to stop listening to fear propaganda spewed by the one sided right-wing media.

      I call those twisted questions. Are you calling government legislation (the will of the majority of people), “force?” There will be no monopoly. There will still be private insurers and they’ll still make mega profits. “Forced to pay for it-forced to pay for it.” You sound like a selfish person who has good health care.

      You may vote for whom you please. But you should realize that so far his words only ring true to a very small percentage of American voters. Thank you for at least voting.

      Then you probably don’t understand what capitalism is, or how the US economy works.

    8. Redthatsmyname

      I disagree. But what I don’t understand is your claim that I don’t understand. Can you elaborate some?

    9. Redthatsmyname

      We can also say that it is the ABUSE of Libery that necessitates Government.

    10. iddqd138

      Well, pure capitalism is basically when the government doesn’t interfere with the market. The US government has tons of regulations on the market, especially when it comes to healthcare.

    11. iddqd138

      The thing is, we’re not against everyone getting healthcare. We’re against socialized medicine, which is a completely different thing. I happen to live in a country with socialized medicine and believe me, it’s nowhere near as great as the US left-wingers claim it is.

      That’s no propaganda. Over here in the UK a guy had been waiting for 7 months with a broken arm to get help.
