The government has full access to your bank assets at all times.
We subsidize groups such as ACORN and the unions.
The elderly will be advised on end of life alternatives.
We pay for all aliens-- illegal or otherwise.
Healthcare will be rationed according to need. If Susie needs a heart transplant, too bad. If the illegal alien needs a butt implant, we pay for it.

What former governor Mitt Romney established in Massachusetts, President Obama wants to do for the entire country. That is, pass a law forcing every American to buy (at their own expense) a health care plan, which will be slightly subsidized for the very poor.
This forces Americans to pay for something they might not need, but will have to fork out cash to get or else face a hefty tax hike.
O.K., since I am as healthy as a horse, I don't need a health plan just yet. So I don't have one out of choice. But now I'm forced by law to pay for something I don't need. Bye bye democracy - hello socialism.
What this does is establish 'float' - that is, a large pool of money not used (since not all Americans are sickly) enabling bankers and treasurers investment opportunities.
Insurance companies have large pools of money lying idle, again called 'float' because not all policy holder make claims at once. Insurance companies routinely invest this 'float' in the stock market (hedge funds, ETFs, money markets, stocks, bonds, etc.); and so do retirement funds. Now with the mandatory health reform law pending, Health Care institution can now do the same thing with a forced pool of money from hapless healthy Americans.

In a nutshell, with a honest government, it entails everything goodness and light ~ until that government goes bad, and they always do.
Then, as now in America, the government serves itself and what pray tell does it serve?
Us, for dinner as dinner.
And the parts not eaten go for extra body parts for the "worthy" ~ who are always seen as being of course only to be found in government.
China has national health care. 40% of China's gene pool is dead since Mao, period.
So if you want 2/5 of America to be genetically weeded out "for their own good", as China scientifically did to China...
Then by all means ~ national health care is the fastest way to get there from this relative utopia.
But seriously. Ritalin for ethnics proves it already happens in America.
This way merely makes it universal.

You no longer have the power to choose your own doctor.
Doctors no longer get paid enough to pay for med school, so very few new doctors.
Rationed health care..
Progressively longer waits for medical procedures.
Government officials like Obama will be exempt from the system and it will get worse and worse for you.
Just like Social Security, Medicare, and any other socialist system you research.

a million. docs do no longer like it whilst human beings spend their well-being care funds on option care. If anybody is compelled to purchase scientific insurance which covers basically the kind of care docs provide, then people who make their funds in mainstream drugs could have greater monopolistic administration. 2. lots of the uninsured who would be compelled to purchase scientific insurance are healthy or could dodge going to mainstream docs whether they have been compelled to pay for scientific insurance. that would advise greater funds to pay docs for the sufferers that they do cope with. 3. docs' inventory portfolios in all risk contain countless shares in pharmaceutical and insurance firms which might earnings.

same # of doctors + 50 million new patients = rationed healthcare
that is it.
pure and simple. do the math.
if we keep the same number of doctors, and add 50 million new patients (and illegal immigrants), the quality of healthcare MUST go down.
it would be like adding 10 roomates to your house, and expecting your quality of life not to go down??!??!?! how would it not???
