Shorter Judd Gregg Health Care Plan

My party and I are so desperately beholden to the interests of the private health care industry – and consequently against any public option in Obama’s health care reform – that I’m going to propose the nicest, almost Democrat(ic) sounding essay about my own proposal.

And did I mention that I’m willing to funnel tax dollars to the private companies in a kind of corporate welfare last ditch attempt to stave off that public option?

To ensure that premiums, co-payments and deductibles are affordable, this plan includes subsidies for low-income individuals. Of course, some will want to purchase more generous coverage, and nothing in my private market plan prevents that option.

    I think conservatives are people who don’t trust other people and dislike service.  Thus, they are inclined to favor products–things that help them keep their distance from other people.  In a pinch, when there’s no alternative, they’ll rely on middlemen (insurance companies and financiers) to perform that function.  As a result, rather than improve the lives of all people, much of American technological innovation aims to keep people apart.

    That may seem ironic in a country generally known as a “melting pot,” but that’s the goal of a melting pot–to homogenize different cultures into one because the differences that exist are not what people want.

    Single is good; social is bad.  More people wanting to get married puts the lie to that paradigm.

    What’s the difference between service and care?  Service implies direct action; care is an attitude.

      I think conservatives cherish thier privacy, believe in self reliance and hold people to a strong level of personal responsibility.  

      Teach a man to fish and you feed him for life, give the man a fish and you teach him to come back for more.
