That way, everyone will enjoy the same protection that IC has with his VA benefits.
FYI, I have never taken advantage of any VA benefits including healthcare. No make that especially healthcare.
I know somebody who has, and he is required to get whatever vaccinations big Pharma is pushing at the time, along with having regular check ups whether he has any problems or not. Typical Big Government BS.
I pay for my HMO insurance, but only in case I lay my motor down. It must be 5 or 6 years since I have seen them with the exception of getting an xray that my chiropractor wanted.
Otherwise I subscribe to the theory that if you take care of your body & mind, it will take care of you.
So "That's a big part of the sky rocketing costs of health care." will not be a factor if everybody would forget government healthcare and subscribe to the same theory.
Not really rocket science. If you pee in your gas tank regularly instead of the proper fuel, eventually you would have to have it towed to the mechanic for repair. Do you have mechanics insurance? Many people who cry about not having health insurance because they can't afford it, can afford cars and gasoline. In fact the so called poor drive newer cars than what I have. It's all about priorities.
