New Signs Of Socialism

Back in July I wrote a post called American Socialism that talked about how this country is moving that way. Well, John Edwards has just reveled that his universal healthcare plan would fit right at home in Cuba. In it, every American would be required to visit a doctor. No exceptions. The government knows whats best for you.
If you are going to be in the system, you can't choose not to go to the doctor for 20 years. You have to go in and be checked and make sure that you are OK.

The whole idea is a continuum of care, basically from birth to death
Well, I guess I just wouldn't have healthcare because the government isn't going to tell me I have to go to a doctor. And here I though John Edwards was "pro-choice".

This makes sense...with every American required to see a doctor...think how many more malpractice suits his lawyer friends can bring.

Well, sense healthcare would be under the control of government, and he would be the leader of said government, does that mean we'd get to sue him for malpractice?

What gets me is that this government we have can't do anything right, but he somehow thinks that they will be able to manage universal healthcare? I'd rather take my chances with Granny from the Beverly Hillbillies.

That should be "since".

Not to mention, we don't have enough doctors for this to happen...

And doctors will start quitting because of all the paperwork involved with government control, etc. Doctor shortages lead to 6 month MRI waitlists like in Canada...it all goes downhill.

Don't forget the three hour wait for an ambulance.
