I really do. Because while John McCain may be suffering, he will get the treatments that he needs, and on our dime. However in the case of Collette Briggs, a four-year-old with leukemia, she may not get that treatment thanks in part to ObamaCare (the Un-Affordable Care Act) being allowed to do damage to our health care. What does McCain want to do? He’ll do nothing about it in spite of all the talk of repealing ObamaCare. He is more interested in sticking it to Donald Trump (regardless of what you and I think of him) than actually helping the American people get relief from this rotten public-private experiment in health care. There were two different repeals, and both were rejected by this Maverick Republican.
If this girl dies before McCain does, one has to wonder if she would speak against McCain at his final judgment. Some Christians believe that would happen, and more. Personally, I think God himself would handle it all.
These public-private partnerships may have worked better in media (think PBS, NPR), public transportation (like your local bus system) and yes, sadly, many corny capitalist projects at all levels. When it comes to health care, it just does not work. Either we embrace free-market capitalism in health care or we go the way many socialists want us to go. A “Single Payer” government monopoly… even if that would send Briggs to an early grave as well. But this ObamaCare is a proven failure. Shame on you Arizona for allowing McCain to stay in office for as long as he has. Now he is likely to die in office as Ted Kennedy and Robert Byrd have. Our founders would be in total disgust.
Forget good intentions. Remember bad results.
The Washington Post recently published a heart-wrenching story of two Virginia families caught up with the consequences of a damaged, declining, and increasingly noncompetitive health insurance market.
Little Collette Briggs, 4, suffers from an aggressive case of leukemia, and the Briggs family for two years has depended upon the medical professionals at a hospital that specializes in pediatric cancer care.
