Single payer will save you money. But will they save your life?
Of all the myths that have been generated, the greatest myth, which borders on fraud, is that people will save money if the purchase is free. Anyone devising such a ludicrous concept, must have an ulterior objective. The entire world is built on obtaining a discount, on saving money, on paying the least possible amount. To apply this to the costliest item in our budget, is not simply ludicrous, it is tantamount to fraud and should be prosecuted. No one in his right mind would think that making something free could be serious about this saving money. There must be another agenda has nothing to do with economics or cost analysis. What is that agenda?
Our personal health care is a very important agenda. Gaining control of our health care is tantamount to controlling our person, essentially controlling our being. We have Medicare for the elderly and we have Medicaid for the poor. That should cover the needy. But to have total control of our health and well-being is about total enslavement of our person.
Medical Myths originate when someone else pays the medical bills.
Myths disappear when Patients pay Appropriate Deductibles and Co-payments on Every Service.
