McCain and Healthcare
I will submit my first issue tonight. Healthcare. John McCain sucks in many ways, but on healthcare he is right where conservatives would like him to be. The Hildebeast and Hussein Obama favor complete government control over our healthcare - disaster. This is America for God sake.
A recent article in my beloved Weekly Standard lays it all out very nicely. Here is a paragraph that I feel summarizes it well:
McCain's plan is based around patient-centered initiatives that already have broad support among Republicans in Congress. They include letting people buy health insurance nationally instead of only from state-regulated firms; giving people the choice of purchasing coverage through cooperatives or other organizations (churches or civic groups, for example); expanding health savings accounts; and making health insurance portable by giving people tax credits of up to $5,000 per family to buy their own coverage instead of getting it through an employer.
He has also expressed concern for veterans, and his proposals include allowing vets to obtain healthcare anywhere - not just the VA.
I know that some readers here admire universal, government run healthcare. I disagree entirely, but I do believe that McCain's proposals would improve the lives of every American.
