Group medical insurance radical, damaging | Information, Sports activities, Jobs


DEAR EDITORS:

Will Ohio’s US Senate candidates JD Vance or Tim Ryan proposes banning America’s distinctive group medical insurance?

These of us who’ve truly studied group well being’s operations acknowledge it as one of the vital radical and damaging concepts of the previous 80 years. Our refusal to grasp simply how subversive and ruinous group well being is when it was revived in 1943 to dam nationwide well being care has made it a gateway to a permissive surroundings for outright medical lunacies and slippery slopes.

The case to abolish group medical insurance would be the opening salvo within the epic battle to rectify distribution of American drugs. The opinion chief in that battle will certainly be short-listed for a future Presidential Medal of Freedom, and given America’s extraordinarily irregular patterns of well being care consumption, even a Nobel Memorial Prize in economics.

Each Vance and Ryan have 4 months to develop into greatness. One candidate’s present well being care place quantities to the same old puddle of moist mush. Plus, funding banker Vance is aware of American enterprise has already labored round group well being’s onerous prices. Particularly, tactical bankruptcies, outsourcing, off-shoring, cost-shifting and wage-cutting. Ever marvel why that $28-an-hour manufacturing facility job is now $18 an hour?

Certainly, our flesh pressers are longtime dupes for group well being. Republicans snored as group well being quietly undermined household because the primal mannequin of financial distribution. A single employee’s uninsured mom and father, or uninsured brother and sister, for instance, won’t ever be enrolled in his group well being coverage underneath so-called household plans. Democrats yawned as group well being, a job-killing excise tax on labor, gutted America of producing jobs.

Evil concepts with up-front attractiveness, akin to group medical insurance, are authorized and luxuriate in huge standard help. See, for instance, the twentieth century’s now defunct governing philosophies. It is essential to ask what the hidden prices of a pretty however evil thought are.

We won’t vote our means out of evil. We won’t reform our means out of evil. We won’t spend our means out of evil. We won’t focus-group our means out of evil. We won’t debate our means out of evil on Sunday morning tv. We will solely hope the profitable candidate, Vance or Ryan, will lay the muse for Congress to abolish group medical insurance.

What of the 170 million Individuals now herded in group medical insurance? My guess is many can be quietly glad to be free of the clutches of an odious undue enrichment scheme from which they benefited a lot, and the needs of which they understood so little.
