We already pay for other's health care
One of the myths being perpetrated by liberals on this health care issue is that there is this huge population out there with no access to health care.
This a complete lie.
Maybe you are not aware, but the fact is, if you are a property owner, you are already paying to for people's health care via property taxes.
As you can see from the scan to the side, Gordon Gekko pays $43.38 every six months for indigent health care. That's $86.76 a year, one little business property in Loveland. That doesn't count the taxes we pay on our palatial three bedroom palace in Maineville.
Those tax dollars are used to cover indigent people who need medical care.
Now, let's say you show up to the emergency room with a gun shot wound and no insurance card. You get treated.
If you don't have insurance but you can afford to pay, you pay. Just like you would pay for the lottery tickets and six packs you could have used for insurance.
If you are indigent, you fill out some forms and this fund pays for you on a sliding scale. Case closed.
I'm sick of hearing about the numbers of people who have no coverage. The fact is people get health care in this country. As much as maybe some need? No. But not so many that we need to initiate an entire socialized program.
So Obamunists, get off our backs.
