Progressives say that Republicans want to leave people out in the street to die if they cannot afford “health insurance.” Or, “we” are paying for the uninsured already so Obamacare will reduce overall health care expense.
Lets remember that St. Louis used to have many free hospitals. We still have several charitable childrens hospitals. I have personally used County clinics for free inoculations. With introduction of Medicare St. Louis lost two free hospitals. History has shown that the more state and Federal governmant get involved in health care, the worse it gets. If Republicans do not understand this message they will lose the presidential election and our health care services will decline while costs skyrocket.
