See a doctor, or suffer the consequences!

Poor, poor Silky Pony. He seems to suffer from the same affliction as Barack Obama: blurting out anything that jumps into his little old mind.

See, Silky not only wants to socialize all medicine, but he would make check-ups mandatory:

Democratic presidential hopeful John Edwards said on Sunday that his universal health care proposal would require that Americans go to the doctor for preventive care.

"It requires that everybody be covered. It requires that everybody get preventive care," he told a crowd sitting in lawn chairs in front of the Cedar County Courthouse. "If you are going to be in the system, you can't choose not to go to the doctor for 20 years. You have to go in and be checked and make sure that you are OK."

He noted, for example, that women would be required to have regular mammograms in an effort to find and treat "the first trace of problem." Edwards and his wife, Elizabeth, announced earlier this year that her breast cancer had returned and spread.

Edwards said his mandatory health care plan would cover preventive, chronic and long-term health care. The plan would include mental health care as well as dental and vision coverage for all Americans.

"The whole idea is a continuum of care, basically from birth to death," he said.


What I want to know is, who on Earth wants the government taking care of them from the cradle to the grave? I mean, even in the best possible scenarios, the government will never do everything right. My perfect government is the one that leaves me the hell alone.

And there are so many things about this plan that are just... scary. I mean, you're required to have mental health check-ups as well? And if your mental health check-up comes back with negative results, then what? Are you forced into psychiatric hospitals? It reminds me a lot of V for Vendetta, with people who are unwanted and don't think the right way being forced into "re-education camps" or killed.

And what if you don't go to the doctor? Are you arrested? Do government officials come bang on your door and force you to go? And if you don't go to the doctor, and it turns out you have cancer, are you refused treatment? And what will they be enforcing next "for our own good"?

As Van Helsing from Moonbattery notes,

From mandatory doctor visits, it will be a short hop to mandatory morning calisthenics, with a two-way telescreen to make sure you're taking part, just like in the liberal how-to manual 1984.

Behaviors deemed "risky" can become outlawed -- for your own good, of course. No smoking, no drinking, no fatty foods... and anything else they declare "bad for you".

And over at Hot Air, a reader left a chilling comment:

Ironically (or maybe not), if this gets put through, the forced abortions are coming if you have a disabled unborn child, cause it'll be too expensive for the "free medicine" system to care for.

Not to mention those folks who have cancer or another life-threatening disease that will cause tremendous expenses for the system. We'll start seeing euthanasia, infanticide, and abortion forced by the government.

This isn't about healthcare; it's about the government asserting total control over our lives. And they call us Nazis?

So much for "land of the free", huh?

A lot of people will read this and say, "Well gee Cassy, aren't you overreacting? The government will never go so far as to engage in infanticide and euthanasia, or to force us to work out every morning, or any of those other awful things you said! He'll never take it that far!"

Perhaps, but once upon a time it would have been considered outrageous to be forced to see a doctor, a dentist, and a mental health professional by our government. How far down this slope will we slide if this system is put into place? When will Silky say "Stop!"? And why should we be at the mercy of the government to begin with?

Again, images of V for Vendetta are just rolling through my mind, with government enforced curfews; certain foods and drinks banned until it's hard to even get food (although never in short supply for the "right" people); only government-approved music, books, and TV shows allowed; and "undesirables" sent to re-education camps only to be murdered, and all of it in the name of our own well-being.

In the same article, Edwards piles on the hypocrisy, liberals' favorite smear for us damn dirty Republicans:

Edwards, who has been criticized by some for calling on Americans to be willing to give up their SUVs while driving one, acknowledged Sunday that he owns a Ford Escape hybrid SUV, purchased within the year, and a Chrysler Pacificia, which he said he has had for years.

"I think all of us have to move, have to make progress," he said. "I'm not holyier-than-thou about this. ... I'm like a lot of Americans, I see how serious this issue is and I want to address it myself and I want to help lead the nation in the right direction."


He wants to lead the nation in the right direction, see? And us little people are too gosh-darn stupid to know what's good for us. Therefore, people like John Edwards and the Goracle must tell us exactly what is good for us, and what to do, and how to do it, and when to do it, and nevermind how we feel about it.

Rob from Say Anything leaves us with a good quote, from the beloved author C.S. Lewis, that I'll end with as well:

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience."

Jay Tea also freaked out about this, earlier. As I pointed out to him, there is nothing - *nothing!* - in Edwards' proposal that makes it compulsory.

This is you projecting your fears onto his program. It's not in it - you're putting it there. Plain as day. Look at it see. This is an opportunity for you to see your own blinders, how your own viewpoint is coloring the information you're receiving.

I'd like to draw your attention to this quote, from your own article:

"If you are going to be in the system, you can't choose not to go to the doctor for 20 years. You have to go in and be checked and make sure that you are OK."

If you are going to be in the system.

Not "when". If people feel that regular health checkups are too great an imposition on their freedom, then they are free to not be a part of the health system Edwards is proposing.

They can continue to pay ridiculously high premiums for health insurance that might not cover them, go to HMO's, be healed by televangelists, or whatever the hell else they want to do.

"Mandatory" is the writer's word - it's not Edwards words.

Which also shows that the so-called Liberal Media can get things wrong about liberals too.

Jay blogged on this HERE.

Sure, jim, it won't be "mandatory" - until the fiscal reality hits that the government plan will be drawing all the uninsurables, and the costs will become prohibitive without forcing everyone into the system.

As I noted on Jay's post, the whole idea of widespread "preventative medicine" saving money is fanciful. What actually happens is healthy people with no symptoms of anything will jam up the system, using limited resources which would normally be devoted to those who need them, creating shortages and raising costs.

It's just another myth attempting to sell us on a socialist system.

Note also that Britain's system is contemplating limiting coverage for those with "unhealthy lifestyles." Big Brother is watching you . . .

So, without even getting into the likelihood of this - to say that Edward is planning this, is simply not accurate.

jim:

Well Les Nessman, that's a separate question.

Certainly if you aren't using the medical system, you won't have to submit to regular health screenings - which is the original topic.

But separately, sure, you might have to pay some money into health insurance, even if you decide not to use it.

You also pay taxes to local schools, even if you don't have children who attend them. You also pay taxes to a fire department, but might go your entire life without ever having your house on fire. Or pay taxes without ever being held hostage and needing a SWAT team to save you.

But these services also improve the quality of life for the entire nation, and make many things possible that benefit us in indirect ways.

Greater overall healthcare can even mean more jobs - we've all heard of the Toyota plans who picked Canada over the US because the employee healthcare was so much cheaper.

Lower healthcare costs overall means healthier kids, which means better and longer-lived workers, and which also frees up money so kids can grow up better educated and more secure as well.

That's all if a universal health-care system lowers costs while keeping the same level care. I think it will; it seems to for other countries.

But that's the bottom line for me: will it lower costs for the working class, and maintain the same level of care? For other nations, it seems to do this. For that reason, I think it's worth looking at here. If it works, that's what matters.

So I think they're on to something. And it makes sense to me that not having insurance companies in the middle is a big part of the cost problem for us, at least.

That money could be far better spent healing people, than in hiring people to *deny* treatment because it might cost too much - as only one example.

P. Bunyan:

"which will likely be ten years behind the times."

Actually it is the capitolistic nature of the American medical system that has been the cause of most medical advances in the world today. If the Democrats take control and impose socialized medicine on us all, the medical system will stagnate and 100 years from now (if anyone's still alive) we will still have the same medicines and treatments we have available to day and nothing more. Actully it will probabaly be even less advanced then it is today.

If there were no socialists or Democrats in this world (or at least none with political power in the US), the medicines and treatments of 100 years from now will make today's medicines and treatements look like those of the late 1800's by comparison.

Don:

#14 Jim
The answer to your question is Yes.
You seem to be under the misconseption that FDR pulled us out of the Great Depression. The War is what ended the Depression. FDR was the reason the Depression lasted 13 years. His relief programs were up to 40% of the GDP. As far as the war was concerned, I will admit that he was the last Democratic POTUS to allow the US Military to fight and WIN a war.
So that I don't go on a rant about that man, may I suggest that you might do some research on him. Starting point might be Wikipedia "Great Depression".
I remember the day that he died. I was even annoyed that they interrupted the Lone Ranger radio program to announce his death.

"It requires that everybody be covered. It requires that everybody get preventive care,"

Notice he used the word *everybody* twice.

This won't work (well it won't work *anyway* but...) unless *everybody* is part of the system. Everyone pays in. Everyone is covered.

Because if you opt out and get sick... are they going to turn you away? If you opt out and are in a car accident and don't have insurance do they let you bleed out on the pavement?

No. They don't.

Just like NOW anyone who needs medical care can go to the hospital and get it. NOW the private health care system absorbs the cost of those people by billing the rest of us.

The whole thing about preventative care is forcing people to go to the doctor before they are desperately ill. Since we will NOT turn away the cancer patient who went undiagnosed for years and years and we will not turn away anyone with lifestyle related illnesses preventative care can ONLY be talking about EVERYBODY.

I'd be far more interested if in Edwards brave new world of health care patients will be prevented from suing government providers.

Unbelievable jim. FDR lengthened the Great Depression with government intervention that extended the length of the depression in the United States compared to other industrialized nations around the world during the same period. FDR promised to keep the US out of WWII even as he was secretly conspiring to get us into it - hardly "leadership". And FDR's conduct of the war was incompetent and resulted in thousands if not tens of thousands of unnecessary casualties to the US in the Pacific, especially the Phillippines, much less places like North Africa.

Or take a look at military hospitals.

In some ways they're good. In other ways not so good.

My husband spent months on rotating "quarters" while the doctor refused to get his herniated disks diagnosed. (Three days off work with bed rest and muscle relaxers... a week back at work... three days "quarters"... a week back at work... three days "quarters"... etc.) Went to a different military hospital and doctor while on leave... "Sorry, can't admit you have a problem because then I'd have to classify you as (whatever) and I'm not going to." It finally took taking him to a civilian doctor when we were physically far enough away from the nearest military hospital to actually get a freaking MRI. We took the civilian MRI and doctor's report with us when we PCS'd to the Philippines where, praise GOD, they had a neurosurgeon on staff. My husband was in such bad shape he didn't even in-process to his new assignment before he was having back surgery and spent 14 days in the hospital for it.

When it comes down to it the Air Force has *fabulous* hospitals, doctors and surgeons. But they also have *rules* just as any government run system will have. There are limited choices and *very* limited ability to take yourself elsewhere if you're not getting the care you need.

No... doing it *better* or *right* isn't going to solve the problems. The problems are inherent in any system that huge that has to manage care at that level.

Oh... I *liked* having babies in the Air Force but I'm sure some would not at all. I saw a different provider, doctor or midwife, every visit. Some were great. Some not so much but at least I wasn't stuck with a bad one. When I went into labor the person who delivered my baby was the doctor on duty who I may have never even met before. There weren't choices between sedated and no-drugs. Everyone got the same, and I'll admit that it was more "up to date" than one of the civilian hospitals I gave birth in. But someone else decided policy and that policy was uniformly implemented and that's what everyone got. No choice.

Trying to pay for medical care might be difficult but I've far more control now, far more autonomy and influence on my own care than with a "free" system that had doctors refusing to even do a CAT scan or MRI to diagnose a serious problem that would require serious treatment.

But DANG was it easy to go get preventative care and immunizations.

The source of the cost of that is not the uninsured patients. It's the private health insurance companies, which bilk every possible dollar they can out of every angle in the entire system, a net loss - without adding one single bit of value.

And you're wrong besides - anyone who needs *emergency* care can go get it - theoretically. Still it's a fact of life that ambulance drivers conduct the "wallet biopsy" of checking the victim's health insurance, and take 'em to a corresponding hospital.

Besides that, people who have chronic illness or even long-term recovery are in a different situation entirely. If they don't have insurance that will cover it, or a house to mortgage or some other option, they likely will *not* get the care they need, and so -

a) their costs don't impact everyone elses

This is not happening now in the current Bush administration, but given Hillary's past abuses of office such as when her protege in the White House pulled confidential FBI background files on Republicans, I only fear Hillary doing it because of her abuses, not the Bush administration's.

And then, are you comfortable with President Hillary Clinton being able to imprison and torture anyone she wants, for any length of time that she wants, for any reason she wants? Or no reason? That all she has to *claim* is the prisoner is in some way linked to terrorists?

This is not happening now, it is a ludicrous misrepresentation of the practices of the Bush administration. In reality it has been Democrat presidents who have actually imprisoned people as described in large numbers, unlike the current administration, so the only "fear" I have that Hillary would do so is the Clinton's own history of abuse of office, not anything done in the Bush administration.

And the prisoner has no right to even *see* the evidence or accusations against them? To even know what they're being charged with?

Again, misrepresents the current practice of the Bush administration. Also misrepresents the state of the law prior to the Bush administration when it was legal to exclude non-security cleared people including defendants from classified information in criminal cases.
