We do NOT need socialized medicine. We did fine for six thousand years of human existence without a governmental health care system. I am not and should not be responsible for the health care of every last person in this nation. Nor should you be. Whatever happened to personal responsibility? Do you know why health coverage is so darn expensive? Because idiots like John Edwards sue medical practitioners and supply companies so they can personally profit from them.
Here are a few paragraphs from an article on a recent interview and future plan by this buffoon.
Democratic U.S. presidential candidate John Edwards on Sunday said that he would raise taxes, chiefly on the wealthy, to pay for expanded healthcare coverage under a plan costing $90 billion to $120 billion a year to be unveiled on Monday.
"We'll have to raise taxes. The only way you can pay for a healthcare plan that cost anywhere from $90 to $120 billion is there has to be a revenue source," Edwards said on NBC's Meet the Press news program.
The 2004 vice presidential nominee and former North Carolina senator said his plan would "get rid of George Bush's tax cuts for people who make over $200,000 a year."
