People who support obama care don't get this is our future

I used to support a single payer system for America until I actually learned what it meant. Who doesn't want "free" healthcare? It's an easy sell.

- It's not free
- It's not healthy
- It's not private
- It removes your control
- and it turns into guiding you toward death because you are too expensive to live.
- You go from being a patient to being a burden on society. Imagine the cost of a chronically sick child. The state would rather not pay for that.
- Doctors go from trying to cure you or at the very least pushing pharmaceuticals at you to giving you the minimal amount of care in the minimal amount of time to rack up the minimal amount of cost.
- you are now a number and suddenly it becomes clear to everyone in the healthcare business that we are "over populated" and the more of us that die the better.
- It makes us cattle. We are either useful part of the herd worth calling the vet for or we are past our usefulness and are taken behind the barn and shot.
