Health Care Speech?

Ideally, the federal government's attempt to be both a legal overseer and a participant in the healthcare system would lead Americans to forget the "government option" argument and dismiss the intrusion altogether. Medicare is a prime example of how a product increases in price and decreases in accessibility when federal government ventures into arenas for which God never made provision. Medicare is to private insurance what spam is to grass-fed steak. Medicare is surviving because theft is what props it up. The fix for the elderly in the 60s is poised to rob the elderly in the early 21st century.

For a president to give a brief address to the nation on how a 1000+-page healthcare bill will benefit them is too far-fetched to be taken seriously. If the speech were 3 hours long it couldn't possibly clarify more than 20 or 30 pages of said bill. That leaves 970 pages of mystery.

Tomorrow's speech is about rallying support for a bill for which the White House has done little to draw attention to its details. It's a rah-rah session that will fail to address 99% of its details.

Tort reform, tax overhaul, and a return to a commitment to the Ten Commandments could do much to improve health care. Tomorrow's speech about a bill, and if its goals are one day achieved, promises further devaluation of the dollar and less access to healthcare professionals.
