Wanted: Bureaucrats?

Here I go again linking: http://tinyurl.com/dmv3z8. This piece from Investor's Business Daily exposes the inherent structural deficiencies of Medicare, the presumed model for the president's proposed (but undisclosed) "public plan" for national health care.

When it comes to health care, maybe it really does take a brain surgeon and not a bureaucrat.

  1. To put bureaucrats in charge of ANY decisions made for my family and me is scary, Terro. Yet we keep giving them more and more control every day. (What do they know about us? Here in middle America? In my village? In my home? Just who the heck are they other than paid employees who hate their jobs and can't wait for Friday -- and I'm the one who's paying them to tell me what to do!)

    Oops -- you set off a tirade, Terro. Delete me if you want. We are paying for Medicare now, thanks to a bureacrat telling us we MUST.

    Last year I had one doctor's appointment, one prescription filled. And I pay more for Medicare than I do for my own insurance. Some model... Medicare has been structurally deficient, just like Social Security, for most of our lives, because politicians have had access to the money paid into both programs.

    God help us.
