Why the Government should not control HealthCare

This election becomes even important as realistically our last chance to stop government intrusion into our healthcare. It will also be our last chance to ensure we continue to have the best healthcare available to who needs it. Remember the Left has stated it is necessary for the young to pay significantly more and our old to be denied certain treatments as being too costly. They lied and promised TORT Reform to cut down on the costs of medical insurance due to frivolous lawsuits. Nothing has been done. Why should you expect them to tell the truth when they promise low and better coverage healthcare.
Only the Government would insist people who cannot afford to buy healthcare pay a heavy fine for not buying what they cannot afford. Rates up there with ‘You have to pass it to see what’s in it ” or “You can keep your doctor or health plan if you want to”.
We need to elect people who will force the Government to get out of the healthcare business except for the few regulations necessary to protect consumers. Vote Smaller Government

I, often, quote: “If voting made any difference they wouldn’t let us do it.” ― Mark Twain
We have many negative exemplars of Gooferment “healthcare”. The VA, the Indian Healthcare System, Medicare, Medicaid, Canada, England, etc etc etc.
We even have a few excellent examples of totally free healthcare in the various form of “medical tourism”. Canadians coming over the border to the USA for MRIs that take months of waiting under the Canadian Gooferment to the point of causing deaths. (I first became aware of it when going to Niagara Falls and seeing signs for 100U$D MRIs available from 1 to 4 AM.) There are countless stories of people going to India, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Thailand for surgeries that cost several hundred thousand in the USA being done cheaply by Board Certified Doctors in what is described as “resort hotel settings”. Even including the cost of travel.
I don’t have an answer HOW we move back to liberty and the free market. But then I’m old and set in my ways. I fear that the young have been trained by Gooferment Skrules to only see Gooferment as the solution.
Perhaps it’s in the “little things” that we can strike back. The way “We, The Sheeple” treat “Speed Limits”. OR taxes, avoid evade under-the-table barter.
In healthcare, some doctors are going cash only concierge medicine. If I could find one, I’d try it.
“If you love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you; May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.” ― Samuel Adams
