GOP Op-Ed to Socialized Health Care

By House Republican Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) Here:
That’s because the Democrats’ plan adds a new layer of taxes, mandates, and bureaucracy on top of the current system. If that’s not bad enough, the Democrats’ plan cuts Medicare and takes away choices for millions of seniors. What does all of this mean? Higher costs for the medicine and treatments you need.

Not only will the Democrats’ government-run health care plan raise your costs, but it also will raise costs for our nation’s employers – particularly small businesses. At the heart of their proposal is a small business tax that, for tens of millions, means diminished job security.

And that's why we are fighting this socialized form of Health Care. Seniors will not get the care they need. Small Business will falter and/or stop hiring new people. Bad for the economy. Bad for Americans. Yes medical costs are rising. But why can't we eliminate the costs by Tort reform. Doctors must raise costs because of Medical Malpractice Insurance and false clams and court costs. Instead of Congress raising our taxes to eliminate the coverage Americans already have.
