Fix the medical (nonexistent) problem on the cheap

Congress has written a 2000 page bill, about which no one knows anything. It addresses untold issues and is a blatant attempt to take control of every aspect of each and every life.

Congress lies. The healthcare problem of uninsured individuals can be fixed for much much less than the $1 trillion plus program the government claims in needed.

A standard healthcare plan costs about $200/month/individual. Rounding the yearly cost to $2000/year/individual, we can calculate that the total yearly cost to simply buy healthcare insurance for 20,000,000 uninsured persons would be about $40,000,000,000.00 (forty billion dollars) giving us a ten year price tag of $400,000,000,000.00 (four hundred billion dollars). This cost is less than half of what the government estimates their plan to cost. In fact, it is closer to one-third. This means dime for dime the government could provide purhcased healthcare insurance for 60 million people for ten years or for 20 million people for 30 years at the same ten year cost of their plan.

What a bunch of idiots!! But the truth is that Congress is not taking care of the people. Congress is taking control of the people. If you do not wake up, you too will be controlled or dead!
