Mitt Romney recently released a policy statement suggesting we need more bureaucrats regulating health care. An excerpt from his website: Expanding Access To Affordable Health Care
...Governor Romney's conservative reforms also make the states true partners in the effort to expand access to affordable, quality health insurance.The Orwellian juxtaposition of the words "conservative" with states as "true partners" in a socialized health care scheme is, to be charitable, disappointing. Watching the Congressional debate on SCHIP, one can only shudder at the prospect of states defining hospitals in Michigan and Wisconsin to actually be in Illinois. From the language of a SCHIP earmark:
"any hospital co-located in Marinette, Wisconsin and Menominee, Michigan is deemed to be located in Chicago."This language ensures that any such hospital will receive far higher Medicare fees. There is one such hospital. Rep. Bart Stupak, D-MI, knows exactly where it is.
At one time affordable health care was the responsibility of the market, but as a direct consequence of increasing government meddling in health care, costs have sky-rocketed.
Mitt Romney tells us the cure is more government. No thanks. One Bush 43 promoting vast health care entitlements is far more than sufficient.
