Healthcare: Government Healthcare’s Here to Stay!

While it appears that the Republicans have managed to assemble a Repeal & Replace Bill two fundamental truths have now emerged:

(1) The American Public, prompted by the progressive antics of cradle-to-grave mythologies, consider Healthcare Coverage a fundamental right and privilege with an expectancy that the costs associated with the same will somehow magically relieve them of any personal responsibility.

(2) If any Bill emerges that does not link the cost of providing these Benefits to the market-forces driving Healthcare Costs then you can kiss any potential for Fiscal Management goodbye.

From Roosevelt who wanted a national healthcare system as part of his Social Security plan thru each attempt, by successor administrations, all the way to LBJ’s Administration that, in July of 1965, finally signed Medicare into law including each modification/expansion that occurred thereafter.
