The Joy of Free Stuff

“Ah the joy of free stuff – who doesn’t love free stuff right?” College kids thought that “free healthcare” was great until someone said that “they had to pay for it.”

The Democrats have long touted tax payer funded “Medicaid for All”, or in other words, a single-payer healthcare system as the “solution” to rising healthcare costs.

Many of the current Democratic presidential “contenders” are pushing this flawed concept rather hard which would include “taxpayer funded abortions.“

Especially “Socialist” Bernie Sanders and “Fauxcahontas” Elizabeth Warren.

The idea here of course is very “attractive” in principle that all Americans would have “health” insurance. Who wouldn’t like that idea right?

A bunch of “college kids” were told this and they pretty much “universally” accepted this as a great idea.

Wanting to see whether they would support “Medicare for All” and if that support would change once they “heard” all the details, Campus Reform’s Cabot Phillips headed to George Washington University in Washington, D.C.

Asking first whether they viewed the plan favorably or unfavorably, the results were near universal.

“I do support Medicare for all,” one student said,

…while others added, “I think every American deserves healthcare,” and “I do support that. It’s an important form of universal healthcare.”

Yet another student said, “I don’t think there’s anything you could tell me that would make me view it unfavorably.”

While strong at first, their support began to waver once Phillips walked them through the basic elements of the plan. When told “Medicare For All” would remove more than 100 million Americans from their private “healthcare” plans, students were shocked.

“I mean they shouldn’t be kicked off, that doesn’t seem fair,” one said…

…while another stated simply, “the government can’t force people to have healthcare with them…”

One student said “those who are able to get private healthcare shouldn’t have to be removed from their current plan…”

 When it came to the $32 trillion “price tag” and subsequent “tax increases” students were deterred further.

“You have to pay for it? You still have to pay for it? I don’t support that…” one said…

…before another admitted, “If I were financially on my own I wouldn’t support that.”

Note this last statement. This person would “not support healthcare for all if he has to foot the bill.”

This kind of attitude is in large measure what is “wrong” with this country today. People say, well, it’s not “my” problem. Maybe it’s not, but what about the fact that the “problems of a nation” most certainly impact its citizens?

Support for “government-run and taxpayer-funded” healthcare has actually grown despite its huge cost; “32 trillion dollars over ten years.” Where do people think the enormous amount of money required to “fund this program” is going to come from?  Perhaps that question needs to be answered first.

To put this into perspective, U.S. spending in 2017, for everything, was $3.99 trillion, and in 2018 total spending was $4.11 trillion. So let’s say for the sake of argument, these numbers are unrealistic, the real numbers would be much higher, that spending per year, for everything is $5 trillion dollars per year on average over next ten years.  Now we add in the cost of “Medicaid for All” at an average cost of $3.2 trillion a year over ten years. We can reasonably expect that the real cost will be significantly higher, this “IS” the U.S. government running the show after all. So let’s increase the cost of “Medicaid for All” to $4 trillion a year.

Total cost projection for each year for all monies paid out by the U.S. government? “Nine Trillion dollars.” The U.S. is already swimming in enormous “debts” unable to cover the cost of each year’s spending, so the U.S. keeps “borrowing” more and more money.

If the U.S. can’t afford today’s spending $4 trillion, how are we going to “afford” over double this amount courtesy of “free healthcare for all?”  Total spending for ten years would be about “$90 TRILLION” dollars, and that is on the “low side” without a doubt. Let that sink in.

The moral of the story? “Free healthcare for all isn’t at all free,” and it’s also a surefire way to “bankrupt” the United States and place a heavy “financial burden” on the shoulders of every “taxpaying” American citizen that no one can possibly carry, while simultaneously “destroying” the U.S. economy.

Furthermore, keep in mind here that the “destruction” of the U.S. economy is a coveted “goal” of the global elitists.  Why you ask?  Because that is one necessary step to “force” the U.S. entering into the “One Global Government.”

Still think “Medicaid for All” is a good idea?

Let’s all continue to fight “political correctness, indoctrination, Leftist propaganda, liberalism,” and keep sharing the truth while “knowledge is power.”
