Health care perspective, 1.0

I’m going to be writing up my own blog entry on the whole health care thing soon (you know, when I’m not completely groggy from shenanigans the night before), but in the meantime, my buddy Mindbling has a great post written by a friend on his trip to Kittanning.

(Small note: I know this is a controversial subject, and an emotional one for people on both sides. I will always be open to rational discussion from either side, but the key word here is “RATIONAL.” However,  if you’re one of these people who thinks that “universal health care = soylent green” or that there will be “death panels” involved or that “Obama = Hitler,” there is no need to go read there or comment here. Thanks!)

    Are you saying that Obama doesn’t want to kill all the grandmas? NO WAY!

    A couple thoughts…
    1. I’m sure he saw numerous wackos at this rally. The ones he mentioned sound like some real tools. Some of the morons present were probably in favor of the public healthcare option. I notice he didn’t spend too much time deriding those folks.

    2. When I hear about the public healthcare option, all I want to know is, how much will it cost? What do we have to do without if we implement this plan? How do we pay for it? Ask these questions, and watch the public healthcare backers become the babbling idiots. In my experience , they will either tell you about some guy they know that could really use free healthcare, or they’ll say “Canada has it”. Then, when you mention that they haven’t answered your question, they’ll tell you an anecdote about someone who may have benefited from public healthcare. When you mention that they STILL haven’t answered your question, they accuse you of being like the wackos at the rally.

    How can you be that gung-ho in favor of something, when you don’t know how much it will cost, or how you will pay for it?
