He's essentially right, but what does it matter?
The health care companies want America to be unhealthy (so there is a large demand for health care services) and they want every service to be paid for (because this maximizes their profit).
The health care companies are in charge of the politicians. Electing Ron Paul as president won't change the influence that they health care companies have over the government.
Well I think it matters quite a bit tbh. We all want a better plan going forward. Properly identifying the problems and Recognizing that more govt intervention and prevention of competition is not the answer is a pretty key step.
I think it would change things significantly.
He would have veto power to deter many of these horrible money pit laws they want to put in place that benefit whoever's special interest groups, as well as the power of executive order to cancel out previous mandates via EO.
He would also stop spending so much money overseas and stop 'printing' so much money which would mean much less inflation and debt, which in turn would mean lower health care costs.This post was edited by cambovenzi on Apr 14 2012 09:44am
