More “free” health care nonsense
This is not only about the health of individuals in our country, which will be justification enough [to expand governtment programs to provide health care]. It’s about the competitiveness of our businesses to make them globally competitive because they are competing with companies and countries where the federal government — their governments — pay for health care. They don’t have to bear those health care costs.
They don’t? Then who does? Someone is paying for that health care. The recipients of said health care and/or their fellow taxpayers are paying for it. But if we use the word “competitive” frequently enough, maybe no one will notice we are ignoring inescapable economic realities.
