HillaryCare - Part 2

Hillary Clinton's newly unveiled health care plan has so many fundamental problems that I had to split this into two blog postings. So, without further adieu...Part 2.

Clinton claims that her plan will only cost $110 billion. (FYI - This is a separate fallacy which would require a 3rd blog entry. It’s a completely unrealistic dollar figure.)

She states that the $110 billion for her plan would come “through a combination of cost savings and the expiration of some of President George W. Bush's tax cuts for the most wealthy.

The AP quoted her this way:

“In unveiling her plan, she called for a requirement for businesses to obtain insurance for employees, and said the wealthy should pay higher taxes to help defray the cost for those less able to pay for it.”

In other words, her plan calls for wealth redistribution. She plans to take money from those she considers to be “the most wealthy” and give it to someone else. She’s sticking to her Socialist roots.

On top of empowering the Government to mandate the purchase of insurance and to redistribute wealth, Hillary’s plan also places more regulation on private insurers.

Joking that her proposals "won't make me the insurance industry's woman of the year," Clinton said companies would no longer be able to deny coverage for pre-existing conditions or genetic predisposition to certain illnesses.

If private insurers are required to cover high-risk individuals, insurance premiums for everyone will increase. It’s not rocket science.

She claims that people who are content with their private plan can keep their plan the way it is. However, the premiums will be much higher due to increased regulation, and taxes will go up.

But, then again, she’s just trying to provide us with “more choice.”
