The new Baccus health care Bill which mimics the failed policy of Massachusetts health care has finally vindicated what opponents have said all along. Liberals have accused opponents of universal health care of racism of being against the poor and have painted them as psychotics and foaming at the mouth bigots being on the side of rich ceos in charge of insurance companies. The new baccus bill however proves that this is not the case and even the most liberal politicians admit that this bill would be a disaster for health care and America's middle class.
The Baccus bill draws parallels to the health care bill in
Massachusetts. It requires businesses to insure their employees,
provides free health care to those in poverty while forcing those not
poor enough to purchase health care. The bill in Massachusetts was a
disaster from the beginning. Passed with help from the traitor Mitt
Romney, it destroyed the middle class and caused health insurance to
The state of Massachusetts was the only state in the
country to go into population decline. the economy became stagnant as
new jobs went away since businesses couldn't afford to pay health care
costs to new employees. Many smaller businesses closed their doors
For the poor and for those getting health care,
their experience was unpleasant. Doctors and staff were incompetent and
wait times increased. In addition, malpractice and wrong treatment
became commonplace. Doctors themselves were at the mercy of politicians
and bureaucrats who dictated to them how to treat their patients in Their interests rather the interests of the patients and what doctors thought was best.
better grasp the severity of the Massachusetts health care system,
consider a study that compared health care in the state of Georgia. In
Atlanta Georgia the average cost was 200$. Average wait time for an
appointment, 11 days. In Boston, the cost was an average of 800$, and
wait times could be up to 60 days or longer! Just think about how bad it
would be if the patient had a life threatening condition!
the middle class, the burdens are worse. Many residents relocated to
Rhode Island and Many fled to New Hampshire. Those who stayed behind to
weather the storm found themselves paying over one third of what they
earned. Many of them simply could not keep up maintaining the lifestyle
they were accustomed to.
Now like a dagger looming overhead, the
same failed health care policy that broke the back of Massachusetts
hangs over the head of the nation. A policy that even liberal elites
like Senator Rockefeller called, "a big big tax on the middle class."
But it is more than just a big tax, it is a death blow toward middle
class prosperity. The bill would create swaths of poverty and keep those
in poverty from rising up.
Just like in Massachusetts, failure
to buy these useless old insurance policies would incur a 950$ fine for
the first year, and 2500$ after that. Hillary Clinton has also proposed
tapping wages to pay for plans that they would have no say in owning.
Boston Globe reports that it would lead to a 10% hike in insurance
rates. This is because there are few options for customers and since
they have no choice to not buy, the companies can raise their rates.
This is very similar to what happened with mandatory auto insurance.
Many drivers still don't have insurance or are under insured. Eventually
only the very wealthy will have insurance.
Eventually the very
poor will be the real victims. They will be given free health care, but
it will be substandard care for which they will wait long periods. As
for getting out of their poverty, it will be prevented. Leaving poverty
means paying for unaffordable insurance which not being able to afford
is a crime, thereby removing all incentives to get education or find
better jobs. For those caught between middle and lower class, they will
be plunged into lower class thanks to this policy.
Task Force analyst Barbara Warick who is also a former resident of
Boston has also estimated the cost in civil liberties as well as
economic liberties. In Massachusetts, those too poor to qualify for
insurance are often encouraged or intimidated into quiting their jobs or
quitting adult education. attempts to break out of poverty are at times
thwarted. In one instance, a man was forced to remain in Massachusetts
under a court order brought on by a psychiatrist. Although it was thrown
out after help from attorneys, the victim lost almost all his assets
and is now a welfare recipient living in another state. More on this in a
In conclusion, those such as Jimmy Carter who
play the race card and others such as the Young Turk Traitors who
portray protesters as being used by ceos might want to take another look
at the consequences of mandatory health care towards minorities and the
poor, the very people they claim to support. One should also examine
how these CEOS along with government employees will benefit as well.
Perhaps an examination of where their donations have gone are in
