Things are heating up in congress. The president is seeking to push his communistic form of health care on the nation. One congressman recently told him, "You lie!" Now they are selling such bumper stickers.

Will his attempt at the destruction of America as we know it succeed? If it does, I can tell you what socialistic medicine is all about, because we live in a country that has it. Taxes are sky high. Sales tax is 19% on virtually anything you buy (e.g. a car, computer, couch, shrubbery, bicycle, etc.). In addition to that is income tax and other taxes. Gas is $5 a gallon. And when you go to the emergency room as we did the other day you have no idea if a doctor will be there. We showed up and two people were ahead of us, and there was no doctor! Doctors only get paid to treat so many patients a month. Once they hit that number they typically could care less if they see another patient. If they do, they don't get paid for it. What kind of motivation is there for success, advancement, and promotion? There isn't.

Capitalism has worked. It isn't perfect, but it is far better than Socialism/Communism.
