Health Care on the Back of a Napkin

This does a pretty fair job of explaining the three options currently being discussed for health care reform. Obviously, I would be more inclined to pick options #1 or #2 if you held a gun to my head. Health care reform is coming; one way or another, but let's do our best to fight the intrusion of government.


  1. Do you believe the Constitution is the rule of law? Do you believe in the original intent of our founding fathers? Do you want to reform Congress? If your answer is yes, we have to work together to make this happen.

  2. A Conservative Folk Hero, Winston Churchill on socialized medicine:

    "The discoveries of healing science must be the inheritance of all. That is clear. Disease must be attacked, whether it occurs in the poorest or the richest man or woman simply on the ground that it is the enemy; and it must be attacked just in the same way as the fire brigade will give its full assistance to the humblest cottage as readily as to the most important mansion. Our policy is to create a national health service in order to ensure that everybody in the country, irrespective of means, age, sex, or occupation, shall have equal opportunities to benefit from the best and most up-to-date medical and allied services available."

  3. Winston Churchill is probably rolling over in his grave as nationalized medicine in Europe has done the exact opposite of what this quote says.

    Great example though.


"If an American is to amount to anything he must rely upon himself, and not upon the State; he must take pride in his own work, instead of sitting idle to envy the luck of others. He must face life with resolute courage, win victory if he can, and accept defeat if he must, without seeking to place on his fellow man a responsibility which is not theirs." - Theodore Roosevelt
