Robin Meyers: He just doesn't get it.

Dr. Robin Meyers, the pastor of Mayflower Congregational Church here in Oklahoma City, wrote an article in the Oklahoma Gazette this week in response to the President's State of the Union speech. I tried to find it online to reference it, but I couldn't find it.

Anyway, in his commentary, he had a particularly pertinent paragraph:

We must remember, he said, "that the best health-care decisions are made not by government and insurance companies, but by patients and their doctors." The only trouble with this standard applause line is that the only way to get insurance companies and HMOs out of the picture is to make the payer a nonprofit entity, like the government, so that health-care "providers" don't make more money by being health-care "deniers."

Well said.

Have ANY of you known of ANYONE, ANYWHERE in the US that has been denied treatment for anything serious?

Illegal aliens with no job, no insurance and no money get free emergency room treatment... and beyond. Those that cannot afford to go can go anyway... what world are liberals living in?

Have you seen socialized healthcare in Canada or England?
Have YOU ever BEEN to the Department of motor vehicle?
If so, you wouldn't want the same people running your doctors office.
Robin Meyers is a shill for the democrat party from the pulpit "pulpit pundit" and the perfect spokesman for the so-called "New Christian Left" (Woody Guthrie-ism)
