Social Security and Medicare Are Socialized Charities

The problem with social security and Medicare is that its socialized charity. People on average draw far more out of both than they ever put in, due to rising HC costs and extended life expentency. The sooner we ditch both, the sooner we can return to a sane free market.

I'm still old enough to remember that we used to have insurance only for hopitalization and major surgery. Now you need it to make an appointment with a doctor without going to an ER. Just when in the hell did that happen? We used to be able to afford routine care on a cash basis, until States started requiring insurance companies to cover everything from abortion pills to viagra.

Since the consumer doesn't pay directly, costs have gone out of control, and insurance premuims are bankrupting us. The only ones getting rich are big pharma and insurance companies that made the deal with the Devil, Obama, Reid, and Pelosi. These companies are shearing us like sheep now on the national level, thanks to Obama.

Heres what we do:

1. Repeal Obamacare (and Romneycare) and allow competition between States to buy insurance in any package the consumer wants or can afford.
2. Allow consumers to purchase drugs/prescriptions from any country.
3. Pass rational tort reform so scum sucking ambulance chasers don't add to overhead.
4. Enforce our immigration laws, to remove illegals and discourage others from using our health care system on a pro bono basis.
5. Start moving younger people out of Government run SS and Medicare using generous tax free deductions to IRAs, 401Ks, and Health Savings Accounts.
6. Instead of teaching how to put on a condom, schools need to teach finance and money management and how to save for their future and retirement. In my experience, people learn this to late in life to make much of a difference. We should be a nation of savers and investors, and that is what we should teach our children again....instead of communism.
