U.S. health care is worth every penny

In Washington, Congress is poised to put HillaryCare on the front burner even though it would break the bank for the 932nd time. 

Closer to home in Madison, we’re in the middle of a state budget battle that’s not really a battle. Those who want to tax and spend Wisconsin into oblivion control the Joint Finance Committee. They control the state Assembly. They control the state Senate. And the chief tax and spend jester lives in the governor’s mansion who just can’t wait till the state Legislative socialists send him their budget so he can take out his veto pen, and tax and spend some more!

Do you play pool?

I do.

I’ve been playing since I was just a kid.

You don’t focus on the ball you’re shooting at. You plan your shots, two, three, four balls down the table.

So it is with the state budget.

The Democrats who’ve wanted control for so long now have it, so every Communist plot is being hatched, every attempt to separate you from your wallet is underway.

The budget Democrats want is going to pass. If it’s not nailed down, it will be taxed. If it is nailed down, it will be taxed.

Want to know how that money is used and whether or not it’s a good deal?

I stumbled across this article in the Investor’s Business Daily from March of this year. In a nutshell, the costs of American health care result in Americans living a lot longer.

Please take a look at
"10 Surprising Facts About American Health Care," that shows how Americans get something for the extra dollars they spend.

Read…and then tell me why we should abandon what we have so Obama and the rest can run our health care system?

Our system is worth every cent. Just ask the people on this side of the grass.
