No matter how good it sounds to have government supply our healthcare needs for us, if it is not sustainable, then it is no more than empty promises.
Back in October of 2007 Wake up America did a piece showing examples from Britain on NHS which is their National Health Service, socialized medicine and government run healthcare.
That piece showed how 70,000 Britons will travel abroad for their healthcare because of the government run healthcare system in place there, as well showing actual case studies of people that had to go elsewhere for life saving medical procedures because they would not live long enough for the government to get around to saving their lives with their socialized healthcare system.
Canadians are also having to outsource their cancer patients because of shortages.
It also showed France and how the system is not sustainable of time.
Every country that has socialized medicine show the same horrors and same problems.
A smart person looks at the failure of others and learns from their mistakes.... not the Obama administration though.
Rick Scott, founder of a group called Conservatives for Patients' Rights, in a campaign coordinated by CRC Public Relations, has ads (video at the top of this post)airing that is making those same comparisons and showing the failures of the system that Barack Obama is trying to impose on Americans.
But in ads, media appearances and other venues, Scott argues that whatever effort Obama is likely to put forth, it will put the country on a slippery slope toward a bureaucratic, British-style national health service.
You can see more of these ads at C4PatientsRights on YouTube.
Obama is on a full out public relations campaign to give the government control of your healthcare, but looking at the lessons of other people's failures show us his promises are no more than his attempt to socialize our country and by the numbers, they don't add up to better healthcare at all.

The subheader on the Yahoo Finance piece is far more revealing than the header.
Subheader "White House: Budget deficit to top $1.8 trillion, 4 times 2008's record" with the title being "White House: Budget deficit to top $1.8 trillion."
Spending like American tax payers are nothing more than a mountain of money and the president feels entitled to reach in and take any amount he wants from them, but even then, there isn't enough so according to the reports, the White House projections have them borrowing "almost 50 cents for every dollar it spends this year."
With the economy performing worse than hoped, revised White House figures point to deepening budget deficits, with the government borrowing almost 50 cents for every dollar it spends this year.
The original White House forecast projected a deficit of $1.75 trillion, or 12.3 percent of GDP and now they say it is going to be $1.84 trillion.
What is another trillion or NINE here and there huh?

Happy Mother's Day all. I celebrate it by sleeping in. My parents like peace and quiet, and so do I. Phone calls are a disturbance. At some point today I will call.
