The politicians tell us free market health care doesn't work, but we haven't had a free market in decades.
The government already pays for nearly half of all health care. This means we're half-socialized already.
Starting with depression era wage and price controls, and continuing with government tax policies, the politicians have made Americans dependent on their jobs to get health insurance.
State government policies have made insurance too expensive by piling on special interest mandates dictating specific types of coverage.
Medicare and Medicaid have fixed the prices we pay for health care, causing the extraordinary paradox of both price inflation and shortages in areas like primary care.
From the Congressional Budget Office:
* Enacting this proposal would result in a net increase in federal budget deficits of about $1.0 trillion
* According to the CBO, this legislation will leave at least 36 million Americans uninsured
* It will force at least 23 million Americans to give up the health coverage they have.
* There would be no change from current law regarding Medicaid or the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP).
