Health Care Reform will be the next tsunami to hit the American economy.
In order to understand Health Care Reform, we must know what is the government’s motivation in pushing Health Care Reform so quickly and so powerfully through Congress.
The U.S. Government is well aware that the present Economic Disaster will not go away within one or two years. They know that the American economy will be worse in three years than it is now. However, in three years, the present Administration will face another election by the American people. Since the Administration wishes to remain in power, they must delude the American people into believing that they have received some great benefit, free of charge.
That great benefit will, of course, be the Health Care Reform, which will, supposedly, give all Americans free access to health care.
We know that nothing is free. If something appears to be free, it is because we have not analyzed the gift thoroughly.
Frequently, something becomes free to one group in society, but paid for by another group in society. When this happens, the recipients of the gift are happy, and the donors of the gift are unhappy.
A situation such as this is exactly what the administration is planning.
BACK TO THE SEA
Three years from now, the majority of American voters will be: unemployed, under-employed, or earning so little they cannot pay for health care. This is the result of the Rip Tide which is dragging the American economy back to the depths of the ocean, the area of low wages, from whence the economy first originated.
The donors of the gift of free health care will be those who are earning enough to pay more taxes.
TAXES WILL RISE
These people will see their taxes rise continuously as the cost of health care rises.
WHAT IS HEALTH CARE?
In order to understand why health care costs must rise, we must understand what health care is.
Health care has always been with mankind. Since we are social animals we instinctively want to help each other so that the group survives.
In any generation, one small group of people will be found to deliver better help than others in the group. This will be most obvious in the health care area where these men will be accorded prestige for their help.
Approximately three thousand years ago, a famous physician, Hippocrates, told his students what they must do and rules they must follow to be a physician.
He said nothing about payment.
PAYING FOR HEALTH CARE
From the beginning of civilized time until less than 80 years ago, there were no health care insurance companies.
Then, suddenly, they appeared!
They were managed by the same unscrupulous men who managed all large businesses. They jumped in between the doctor and his patient under the pretext that they would help cover the costs of medical care when those costs became beyond the means of the patient to pay.
PROFIT – BIG PROFIT
The health insurance companies had only one motivation: PROFIT.
Profit seekers had always wanted to jump in between doctor and patient. They saw the immense potential profit. But, both doctor and patient resisted. They saw the immense potential for robbery.
But science and technology had advanced.
There were new means for diagnosis: Radiology, Laboratories and complex expensive equipment.
Hospitals were no longer halls of beds, called Wards. They became similar to hotels, with elaborate kitchens, dining halls, operating suites and patient rooms wired for electric and electronic devices. Emergency Rooms were added to the entrance of the hospitals, where doctors trained in acute care would greet the ambulances rushing in from the city.
The cost for this assemblage of modern technologically advanced health care was almost always beyond the means of the patient to pay.
Insurance companies immediately saw their opportunity to enter the health care scenario.
They solicited the public for buyers of insurance that felt they needed monetary protection if they developed a severe illness.
From an insurance company, however, they rapidly turned into a management company, in order to reduce their costs and raise their profits.
MANAGEMENT MEANS BIGGER REWARDS
The health care insurance companies were in an unusually unique and fortunate situation.
Insurance companies need customers who are afraid of the future. Those customers who are afraid of untimely death go to life insurance companies.
Those customers who are afraid of fire in their home or business go to fire insurance companies. There are hundreds of fears and hundreds of insurance companies which can make a profit insuring against those fears.
These companies must rely on statistics to compute their fees. They also market intensively to find customers.
The health care insurers were extremely lucky. Almost everybody was afraid of illness. There were unlimited customers.
Health care delivery could be modified. it did not depend entirely on chance. By changing how the care was given, and by whom, the cost could be lowered and the profit raised.
These changes required governmental permission. The health care insurers donated large quantities of money to the politicians who controlled health care policy and their policies were soon modified in their favor.
ONLY SEVEN COMPANIES
Within less than two decades seven companies controlled the entire U.S. health care market. Congress must go trough these companies if wants health care reforms.
Today the U.S. Congress is debating how much money to give the health care insurance companies.
TWO TRILLION MORE
The estimates are close to two trillion dollars. This is another nail in the coffin of the American economy.
AMERICA CANNOT AFFORD IT
Since the American public is being laid off in higher numbers each week, they will be unable to afford the new health care plan.
The Government will simply print bonds and the Federal Reserve will buy them. The debt will click up another two trillion and the U.S. Dollar will click downward. This is exactly what this government wants: Inflation. With inflation comes the destruction of all debt. The Government will be free and the public will be free.
And Chaos will cover the Land.
Enter the Obama rulers….
