Road Rage

Written by D. Pitney on 6:19 PM

While driving recently I happened upon a bumper sticker that very nearly made me run the offending car off the road. (justifiably so) The scandalous sign read “Health care is a human right”. Now by no means am I a constitutional expert but the last time I checked life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness were the human rights guaranteed in this the most amazing document ever penned down.

We have come to a cross road in American Society where people’s wants are now human rights. I want a new car. Is this a “human right”? I want a swimming pool added to my home. Is this a “human right”? No one with half a brain would even consider my requests as sane. Yet “health care” which is no different than my new car or my swimming pool should be considered a human right.

Everyone deserves to be seen and treated by a capable doctor. Everyone deserves to be treated with respect and compassion when they are ill. However you should not expect someone else to pay higher taxes so that you can get your treatment. I am fortunate to work for a company that partially pays for my health insurance but their cost and my costs continue to rise. I consider the fact that they still pay some a true blessing. If you want real cost effective change then put free market forces to work (if you don’t know what those are then you are in real trouble)(I will give you a hint Competition). Another option is to utilize health savings plans and fund your own insurance. Put away what you would spend each month on insurance in a safe account and should the need arise the funds are there to pay. Tell your doctor you will pay cash for your procedure. He or She will love you since they now do not have to deal with the insurance companies. (I bet they will even give you a great deal and if not go somewhere that will)

I am truly sick and tired of the give me society we live in. I have been raised to believe we get what we earn. I expect that if I sit around and wait for someone else to take care of my needs then I will probably have nothing. On the other hand if I get up, get going and plow a head then I will have all of my needs and many of my wants met. Stop standing around with your hands out. Put those hands to work and go earn your health care like the rest of us. God Bless America
