What About Cutting the Cost

Americans wanted someone to do something about healthcare because the costs are through the roof. The average family pays almost as much as a car payment for healthcare. The costs keep rising and what do we hear from our leaders? The costs will be going up so they can take it over. That's right. We can't afford it now but according to congress we can pay more. The issues that I and others have outlined that raise the cost of healthcare and could be addressed to lower it, haven't even been discussed. It doesn't seem to matter what the people need.

After looking over the current offering, the people are starting to run. The polling numbers are quickly turning against congress.

Poll: Americans no longer believe in health 'crisis'
Support for government solution plummets from only months ago

A poll released today shows Americans' belief in the current health care system has risen dramatically in the last year, and support for a socialized solution to a health care "crisis" has nearly evaporated.

The latest results from Rasmussen Reports show 49 percent of Americans now rate the quality of U.S. health care system as good or excellent, to only 27 percent that still argue it's poor.

The favorable numbers reflect a 20-point jump from prior to the presidential election, when a June 2008 Rasmussen poll showed only 29 percent rated the health care system so well and 37 percent rated it poor.

Furthermore, the more government reform of health care has been in the national spotlight, the more Americans have grown to appreciate a private health care industry.

The 49 percent rating the U.S. system as good or excellent reflects a rise from 29 percent last year, to 35 percent in May and 44 percent at the beginning of October.

"Those opposed to Mr. Obama's reform appear to have momentum on their side," writes pollster Scott Rasmussen in a Wall Street Journal editorial. "It appears that the prospect of changing health care has made the existing system look better to a lot of people."

Have you let your congress critters know where you stand on healthcare?

I'm certain that this has less to do with health care than it does to do with expanded power.

This needs to be revealed for what it is; illegal expansion of a federal government over states.

Yes, I have. And they have effectively told me to keep my nose out of their business.

They do not care what we think.

Why is that?

Could it be because they know that before the next election there will no longer be any need for elections?

"Government" and "cutting costs" should never be used in the same sentence, at least where credibility and a straight-face are required...
