Question by Felonius Monkey: Is this a well-understood fact about the healthcare reform bills?
In socialized medicine the government controls everything. But here in America every bill advanced so far calls for private physicians, nurses, hospitals, clinics, labs and medical equipment companies. The only government involvement would be with insurance.
Right now private insurance overhead consumes one-third (31 percent) of every healthcare dollar. I’m not talking about the cost of paying doctors, I’m talking about administrative salaries and paperwork.(http://www.pnhp.org/)
Why is anyone fighting so preserve this level of bureaucracy?

- Medicare Tax? Health Care for the Elderly? Let’s look at the facts about the proposed Medicare Tax … and a medical care program for the aged that already exists! What’s the hurry here? The supporters of the proposed Medicare Tax would have you believe that passage of this controversial bill is urgent … that persons over 5 are deprived of needed medical care because they can’t pay for it. Nothing could be further from the truth. The Kerr-Mills Law, passed by Congress in 1960 – enabled individual states to guarantee to every elderly person who needs help the health care he or she requires. We call this health program … Health Opportunity for the Elderly. Thousands of people every day are being helped by its generous benefits. And unlike Medicare, which would substantially increase your Social Security Tax payroll deductions, existing programs are being paid for now by a part of your present tax dollar! Medicare? NO. Health Care for the Elderly? YES! ….. 1964 American Medical Association Ad, A5157.
