Oppose Govt.-Run Healthcare? Repeal Medicare Now!

I have yet to hear a public official say that he or she is opposed to single-payer, government-run, totally government-controlled healthcare AND that we should get rid of Medicare. Because that is EXACTLY what Medicare is. As long as we are at it, we need to get rid of Social Security, because that is a socialist-style program.

PLEASE don't tell me you oppose government-run, socialist-style programs without first demanding we get rid of Medicare and Social Security. THEN you will have credibility talking about nixing healthcare reform for 46 million people without insurance.

But I have yet to hear any Republican Representative stand up and say that...


  1. I, for one, am opposed to MOST federally run programs like Medicare and Social Security. Just another thing to try to steal money (via income tax) for so Presidents can steal from these programs and make it look like a budget surplus(See William J Clinton surplus myth).

    Again(I'm pretty sure I said this before, but not 100%), give States the ability to opt-out of federal programs(and the involved taxes) if they choose and then we will start to see progress. People can move to the States that fit their lifestyles.

  2. If some states offered a public option, I would be there...
