Lindsay Backas: No ‘Orwellian’ health care

Lindsay Backas

The American people have spoken. They oppose government-run health care by a wide margin! What Americans want are common-sense, responsible solutions that address the rising cost of health care and other major problems.

Moreover, Americans want a stop to the insane modern progressive policies and corruption that are bankrupting America and mortgaging the future of our children and the future generations of our nation.

The overwhelming majority of Americans want a plan for common-sense health care reform our nation can afford.

NO ONE can deny that virtually every federal government entitlement program is a cesspool of corruption, waste fraud and abuse. As much as $500 billion just in Medicare and Medicaid alone are being wasted.

The recent, ridiculously false, government accountings of the “jobs” created by the massive amounts of stimulus funds is a clear example of an incredible level of incompetence and an inexcusable breach of fiscal responsibility.

If the Federal Government cannot stop this outrageous funding of criminal enterprises and monumental fiscal irresponsibility – first – it is beyond comprehension that we should allow them to take over as much as 20 percent more of the private economy.

During this massively overcomplicated, ridiculous process of crafting these various Orwellian versions of “health care reform” no one can even agree on how many actual “uninsured” Americans there are.

Legislation that invokes further IRS intrusion into our lives, onerous massive tax increases and threatens huge fines and jail terms for non compliance, will lead to an exodus of doctors and health care professionals, rationing and a plague of other unacceptable outcomes, as is common in other nationalized health care countries.

If our government can not manage the basic task of maintaining our borders and effectively enforcing our immigration laws, it is ludicrous to even begin to consider any further broadening of federal powers!
