Sestak Toes Party Line on Healthcare
What is clear to most people is that the public option, is the camel's nose under the tent for a complete government takeover of the healthcare economy. It will no longer be the quasi private system that it is today, but a government directed and controlled system, single-payer system akin to Medicare.
What's wrong with that? Nothing except that Medicare itself is an unsustainable Ponzi scheme that is hurtling toward bankruptcy even faster than Social Security. As Baby Boomers slide into the ranks of the retired there simply will not be enough younger workers to sustain the system, not without taxing them a egregious rates.
There is another direction to go and that is to reform that encourages more personal control and individual responsibility for the spending of healthcare dollars.
More on that tomorrow.
