Mike: It was the Republicans that made sure that Medicare would live on in infamy. Here we are today, 2013. Anyone who can read an actuarial table and knows what an actuarial table is, which is used in the insurance business to gauge risk and then assign rates or premiums to mitigate that risk should you have to call on insurance, anyone that can an actuarial table and then read a simple spreadsheet of incomes and disbursements — this is especially true of you physicians out there that have to deal with this. You know of what I speak. You know that this thing is broke. It is broken beyond repair. It is going to crash and burn of its own weight, yet you will not hear a peep from those that say [mocking] “We can’t let the government take over healthcare with Obamacare.” Why not? You let them take it over with Geezercare. As a matter of fact, the same party that says government shouldn’t be running healthcare, the Republicans, are probably now the most staunch defenders of the biggest government healthcare program known to ever exist in the history of the universe, Medicare.
Think about that and then come back to me and tell me just how precisely devoted you think your “conservative” member of Congress is that’s a Republican. He or she is no more devoted to ending government-run healthcare than earthworms about to be put on the end of hooks to go fetch a couple of bass or crappie or whatever. I don’t buy any of this. Are there good guys in Congress that actually see the folly of this and know that the only hope for geezered citizens to maintain some kind of the healthcare, or health insurance more specifically because it’s not about healthcare, it’s about insurance. The only way for those geezered citizens to maintain that is to be by breaking the program up and let the individual states run it. Some states are just going to choose they’re not going to be able to, not in the manner it’s being run today. I think the end result of that will be a net positive. Take that from what it’s worth of someone in the next 15 years who will actually have to live under some kind of government-imposed medical system simply by virtue of my age.
The whole thing about defunding Obamacare because we don’t want government-run healthcare, Republicans are being besieged by Tea Partiers to not let government run our healthcare, again I just ask the dubious question: Why then is it okay for the government to run almost every facet of aged care, which is medical care, which is healthcare for geezered citizens? No one seems to have an issue with this. You can’t have it both ways. If you think they’re going to go to the wall for this, it’s not because as a “conservative member of the Republican Party” that you oppose government-funded healthcare. That’s just a lie. It may be because you want people to think that you oppose government-run healthcare because it sounds good when you go to campaign about one year from today. That’s my analysis of this.
