It sounds so ... sweet.
A single-payer (a euphemism for your-tax-dollars-spent-by-a-government-bureaucrat who-could-give-a-shit-about-your-tax-dollars) health care system that will save us a ton of money?
It's so says Ed Weisbart in a 753-word treatise in today's Roanoke Times. See "Medical students embrace Medicare for all."
Sure enough, Ed advises that his plan (any bets on whether he was a big supporter of Obama's plan a few short months ago? So much for that ...) will be cost-effective and universal.
How wonderful is that?
You may orgasm now.
My seven word response?
The quality of care will be awful.
No, make that a seven-and-a-half word response:
The quality of care will be godawful.
No. Make it eight words:
The quality of care will be heart-wrenchingly godawful.
People like Ed Weisbart operate burdened by the illusion that a surgeon will perform a liver resection for a ruptured hepatocellular carcinoma for $7.95 an hour.
Ain't gonna happen.
Bottom line: You can have health care on the cheap - and you'll get just that.
Or you can have - assuming ObamaCare is scrapped next month - the finest health care delivery system ever devised by humankind. And pay accordingly.
Google the term "don't look a gift horse in the mouth." That "gift horse"? You'll find the definition to be synonymous with "universal one-payer health care."
