Hillary’s Fascist Health Care Plan
I really think everyone is looking at Hillary Clinton’s health care plan all wrong. What a true socialist like Michael Moore or Dennis Kucinich wants is socialized health care. To these people health care should be completely handled by the government like the Post Office handling your mail, the Fire Department putting out fires, or the Police Department fighting crime. In their minds doctors would be employed by the government to serve the needs of the people.
We are talking about something very different with a health plan that requires every citizen to buy a health insurance plan from a health insurance company. Didn’t everyone watch Michael Moore’s Sicko? How is Hillary’s health care plan any better than Billy Tozan’s Medicare scam? Unfortunately many people don’t understand this is corruption of free market economics because a free market does not include corporate welfare.
Since Hillary is requiring people to buy a health insurance policy from a corporation, I would call this a fascist health care plan. In review of the 14 Points of Fascism, I believe it relates to points 9 and 10:
9. Corporate Power is Protected
The industrial and business aristocracy of a fascist nation often are the ones who put the government leaders into power, creating a mutually beneficial business/government relationship and power elite.
13. Rampant Cronyism and Corruption
Fascist regimes almost always are governed by groups of friends and associates who appoint each other to government positions and use governmental power and authority to protect their friends from accountability. It is not uncommon in fascist regimes for national resources and even treasures to be appropriated or even outright stolen by government leaders.
Conservatives are afraid of Socialism or the government having too much power. Liberals are afraid of Corporations exploiting people or things for money.
When you have the government merging with corporations to serve corporate interests you have fascism. This is why Aaron Russo called his film “America Freedom to Fascism” not “America Freedom to Socialism.”
The big point here is you now have something both Conservatives and Liberals oppose. This is why people from every political spectrum joined together to support Ron Paul. I believe this is very important to understand in order to unite people?
I often pointing out to my Liberal friends, Michael Moore didn’t support SCHIP.
The reason is SCHIP was a way to tax people for smoking and funnel money to health insurance companies. You have to rely on people to smoke to provide health care for children. I’m really surprised George Bush didn’t support SCHIP since he supported the Medicare bill.
Hillary Clinton’s has received more money from the health lobby than any other candidate. Michael Moore keeps a running update on his website: see Sickos for Sale. This is a good site to bookmark because these figures are updated as soon as the disclosure information is released.
There were two Presidential candidates who wanted to cut the health insurance companies out of the picture that I’m aware of. If I’m missing someone, let me know.
Dennis Kucinich wanted implement a health care program similar to Canada’s as Michael Moore recommended.
Ron Paul wanted to implement a plan where people would need to check around for the lowest prices so doctors would have to compete and lower their prices. He also recommends elimination health insurance for all non major medical treatments so you pay the doctor directly in cash.
At first I thought this was a ridicules idea, but then I starting thinking about the billing department that’s required just to hassle with insurance companies. All the claims have to be coded, submitted, and then a good deal of the time you have to fight with the insurance company to get paid. Doctors also bill as high a price as they can, struggling to get more money out of the insurance companies. The insurance company than applies an allowed amount if the doctors office is a participating provider. Basically what Ron Paul suggests is getting rid of the Nixon mandate Michael Moore brought up in the movie Sicko.
