Why Americans Lack Health Insurance

The big health-care summit in Washington yesterday could have addressed one issue in more detail: Why do so many Americans lack health insurance in the first place? The Democrats seem to blame everyone but themselves. Here are the questions we might ask to find out:

 

How many millions of people without health insurance grew up poor because they did not have a father in their home, since 1960s-style Democrats and feminists have insistently maligned the presence of men in the home and advocated a lifestyle of single motherhood, with its vastly higher rates of poverty and government dependence?

 

 Many, friends, many millions.

 

 How many millions of people without health insurance are living in rural areas where environmentalist Democrats have destroyed the economies and thrown people out of their jobs with endless eco-regulations and restrictions on mining, farming, ranching, quarrying and timber cutting, and power plant construction?

 

 Many, friends, many millions.

 

 How many millions of people who have no health insurance have had  their jobs shipped overseas by companies that cannot any longer bear the burden of endless taxation, regulation, lawsuits and bureaucracy as imposed by the relentless crusades of the Democrat party against American business?

 

 Many, friends, many millions.

 

 How many millions of people without health insurance have had their jobs destroyed, or never have been able to find jobs because belligerent labor unions, allied with the Democrat party, have destroyed trillions of dollars in wealth through endless confrontations with the business interests and corporations that traditionally provide jobs?

 

 Many, friends, many millions.

 

 How many people  have no health coverage because they live in the cities of America, particularly the inner cities, which have been controlled without challenge for more than 100 years by Democrats, where taxation, regulation, bureaucracy and corruption have thwarted the creation of new businesses, wealth and jobs?

 

Many, friends, many millions.

 

How many millions of people lacking health insurance were poorly educated in, or dropped out of the public education system – run lock, stock and barrel by the Democrat party – because of the terrible schools and failed educational policies established over decades by the left-wing teacher unions? 

 

Many, friends, many millions.

 

How many millions of people without health insurance have seen their incomes taxed away by the heavy hand of the Democrats across America, leaving them with no money to pay for health care… or other crucial needs?

 

Many, friends, many millions.

 

How many millions of uninsured people cannot afford health insurance because the trial lawyers, who are allied closely with the Democrat party, have drastically increased the cost of all aspects of health care by putting every single health-care provider (doctors, nurses, physical therapists, ambulance services etc.) under legal duress and frightening them into paying sky-high insurance premiums, into doubling or tripling up on testing and other procedures, and leading doctors to use overly-expensive treatments to avoid any possible legal liability?

 

Many, friends, many millions.

 

How many millions of citizens cannot afford insurance because the health-care industry’s Democrat labor unions like SEIU, particularly nurses, are pushing for relentless pay increases, pushing up the cost of care for all?

 

Many, friends, many millions.

 

How many millions of citizens cannot afford health insurance because busybody Democrat legislators in every state have mandated exactly what must be covered under insurance plans sold in those states, forcing people to pay ever-increasing costs for unnecessary and unwanted coverage?

 

Many, friends, many millions.

 

How many millions of our citizens cannot afford health insurance because they live in Democrat-dominated states with devastated economies like California, New York, Massachusetts, Illinois, Rhode Island and Vermont where liberals have undermined those states’ economies over decades, leaving people with no jobs and no hope?

 

Many, friends, many millions.

 

So what is the solution?

 

In order to make health insurance available to most people, the first thing we should do is to expose the Democrats and socialists for who they are and what they are doing to America‘s economy and health care system.

 

Conservatives have the real solution: First, restrain the Democrat party. Then implement market-based solutions, and legal reform.
