From my own life experiences and those around me, I have seen two important perspectives to the debate on government health care.
One, there are people who because of disability cannot work and need health care assistance. However, there is also a large number of people who can work and should be able to contribute to their own health care but do not. They are taking advantage of the system and spending dollars that should be reserved for those who truly need.
Recently I learned that New York state is spending $60 billion on Medicaid.
Now, the New York state Assembly has passed legislation known as the New York Health Act which would create a single-payer, government-controlled system for all New Yorkers. The program could cost up to $100 billion — which would lead to even higher taxes for New Yorkers. This would not make New York a better place.
Let’s stop government from doing too much in health care and other areas and preserve health care assistance for those truly in need.
