Another Look at Health Care

23 10 2009

drink and glassesHere it is! Here is the whole answer to why we do not need a health care plan.

A columnist for a local newspaper wrote about her friend Judy who needed health care. Seems Judy had lost her job and went through a terrible divorce and was suffering from severe depression. By the time the columnist had finished with her first of two installments, everyone was rooting for poor Judy because she really needed help and Obama’s health care plan is exactly what she needs to get her life in order again.

Then came the second installment about Judy. Once again, the columnist rooted for poor Judy who by now was spending much time in bed, always too sick to get up and get out and get a job. Finally, she realized after selling off personal items that she needed a job. So she got up and got out this time, but her main problem was still lack of insurance. Or rather, that no one would give her any free insurance to pay for her depression medication so she could get her life in order again.

She finally borrowed enough money to see a doctor who then gave her some free medication and that gave her the incentive to get a job again. Then she ran out of medication and called the doctor’s office and they did not have anymore free medication for her, so she reverted to lying in bed, crying, and being too depressed to work once again. Then she learned how to work the system – get a job every so often, save enough money to see a doctor, get free medication, and work for awhile. Then when the medication ran out, she would once again end up in bed, crying, unable to work while piling up more bills. This cycle went on for some time.

Judy finally contacted her family who came with help. She had never told them how she was surviving. Poor Judy. Everyone else was to blame except her and her lifestyle. All she needed was health insurance and her life would miraculously take a turn for the better. Her family obtained free health care for her and everything turned out hunky dory. Good old Judy won.

Then the columnist in passing mentions that her friend, Judy, also had an alcohol problem. Of course, according to the columnist, this problem was caused by the lack of medication for the depression. But the columnist obviously does not know much about drunks. Her friend Judy was a typical drunk. This meant she would work long enough to obtain enough money for booze and then use all that up until she had to work again to obtain enough for more booze. If you talk to any hardcore alcoholic, they will tell you this is ultimate lifestyle for a true alcoholic. And of course it is always, always, someone else’s fault that they have such a rotten life. Poor thing – the columnist insists Judy’s main problem was no free health insurance.

Judy only wanted enough insurance to assure that she could continue in this lifestyle. She wanted someone else to take up her responsibility and provide her with the health insurance that she should have been providing for herself all along.

It is always the same answer. Most of the American people have health insurance. We are supposed to want to provide for that small number who do not want health insurance and would not buy it if they could. They see no reason to practice any personal responsibility when all the world is theirs for free. All they have to do is be too sick to work, lie in bed crying, and we will provide for them. There are lots of poor Judy’s out there. Just look around. They are all the same. They do not have health insurance because they do not want to pay for it. They would rather sit with their hand out and beg. There are a lot of health insurance programs, enough to fit all the needs of the American people. The only insurance that is not offered today is free insurance that pays for all expenses. Obama and his administration are determined to provide that one – on all our backs. We are all supposed to smile and say thank you to the bureaucrats and to the Congress for taking our money to provide for all the Judy’s in this world. We are supposed to smile a lot while they kill our babies with abortion and force us to pay for the procedures. We are supposed to laugh out loud while they ruin the greatest medical profession in the whole wide world.

Write your congressmen today. Tell them NO NO NO NO NO on any health care plan. We don’t need it. We don’t want it. The only people who do are the Judy’s of this world. And that columnist.
