10/21/09 Beck/Stossel on universal healthcare in Massachusetts (costs up 42% since 2006) .

I'm tired of people that condemn Fox because they feel that the media should have 100% bias to the left like Venezuela. They must think they're Hugo Chavez. That's typical liberal reverse logic, not knowing the facts, listening to nothing but liberal bias their entire lives and demonizing everyone that disagrees. I guess constantly harassing the people you disagree with is the next step toward the type of government they want. See my comments at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u6VCMu... .

I've been hearing the 47 million uninsured breakdown from several sources. The numbers come from the U.S. Census Bureau. The bottom line; That 47 million is throughout the year. It is about 18 million at any one time. Out of that year, there are about 12 million Americans without affordable options. That's less than 4% of the population. Obama care would cover 94% of Americans. Is there a difference on the number covered? They're just feeding on the uninformed and using demonization again and dems are masters at it. The press conferences with spin doc props (they even passed out the white coats for them to put on) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IJjr39... , prepackaging questions http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UaonY6... and lies http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001... are good examples. Here's the breakdown of the 47 million:
Illegal Immigrants 5.2 million - 11%; Legal Immigrants 5 million - 11%; Individuals Earning more than $75,000 9 million - 19%; Eligible for Government Programs 9.7 million - 20%; Eligible for Employer-Sponsored Insurance 6 million - 13%; Americans without Affordable Options 12 million - 26%. Plus somewhere in there are 20 to 25 year olds that can easily afford health insurance but think they are invincible and would rather have the money.

85% of Americans are satisfied with their current healthcare. Does anyone believe the government can improve that? Who would buy health insurance if you could just jump into the government plan if something serious comes up? That alone would force single payer which the dems admit is their goal http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cgmkb8... . Canada ranks 28 out of 28 countries in value for their healthcare dollar http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O2ki9j... and it's a disaster http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sXJgkv... . There was healthcare reform in Massachusetts and healthcare costs increased 42%. They have the highest healthcare costs per person in the world according to the Boston Globe. How is that saving money? The comments on health care show that people just accept the company line at if it were gospel even if it doesn't meet third grade math. See http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PMja8A... for problems with the Baucus version. Two constitution lawyers claim that the provision that would force people to get insurance to get around the jump in problem is unconstitutional and they explain the difference with car insurance. They claim that it would be immediately challenged.

I see the Hollywood lefties arguing that Medicare only has a 3% administrative fee. That doesn't take into account fraud, government waste http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aj7Ode... , agencies that don't come under their spreadsheet like lawyers under Dept of Justice, payments under the Treasury, collections under the IRS spreadsheet and the fact that Medicare is subsidized by everyone that pays insurance to make up for being short changed by the government (for example, insurance companies and hospitals have about a 3% profit margin http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xelNfq... ), the lack of incentive to innovate plus Medicare is bankrupt ($38 trillion in unfunded liabilities http://www.realclearpolitics.com/arti... ). That's something like 20 times our annual revenue. At what point does that number sink in? Again they're feeding on the uninformed and using demonization which the uniformed are prime targets.
