A Universal Health Care Solution

I thought this e-mail, from Quick Hitts Podcast listener Don Venardos, was something you’d all enjoy. (Reprinted with Don’s Permission. The only e-mails I publish without permission are the nasty ones.)

My latest thought on healthcare:

Remove the restriction that limits group insurance to employment based organizations, then let the Democrats create the single payer system that they so desperately want for every member of the Democratic party, paid for by the dues from the Democratic party. They can set up whatever fee structure they want and have their own socialist bliss, whilst leaving those of us who prefer free markets to
ourselves.

If it is a good idea then their ranks will swell and they will be happy campers. Of course, with all of their soak the rich rhetoric I have a feeling that there will be no one left in the party to foot the bill, but there is no better lab than the real world, so if they are so convinced that this is the way to go then they should put their money where their mouth is and prove it to the world.

Regards,
Don Venardos

  1. As a screaming liberal, let me just say I think this idea is filled with awesome.

  2. Hey, Cindi, welcome to my blog. I know we don’t agree on many things (except how much fun Improv is) but it’s good to see you here.

  3. Cindi, I am glad you think so. I actually try to dream up solutions that are feasible and economically sound. I share them with my politicians, but so far none of them have called me in for policy recommendations. I figure it can’t hurt to talk about good ideas. If enough people do it, who knows maybe something will happen – once a hopeless idealist, always a hopeless idealist.

  4. I really love being a Brit.

    The US could do with chopping its military budget and putting it into healthcare instead. The US military budget ($600bn) is greater than all the rest of the worlds budgets combined ($500bn).
