Americans Want Nationalized Healthcare

I have learned from our town newspaper that the Barack Obama Healthcare Transition Team is soliciting suggestions from communities across America for what will, I presume, become his healthcare plan.

The report given to these communities reads, in part, "Healthcare insurance premiums have double in the past eight years, accompanied by increasing co-pays and deductibles that threaten access to care. In addition, large medical bills have contributed to half of bankruptcies and foreclosures and that rising health care costs place a burden on American businesses, which pay twice as much on health benefits as most of their foreign competitors," continues, "nearly 160 million Americans have job-based insurance, but many are just a pink slip away from joining the ranks of the uninsured. For every one percentage point increase in the unemployment rate, over one million people become uninsured."

So, what do blue-state Nutmeggers conclude from this?
That health care "is a right, not a privilege."

And there ya have it. Nationalized Healthcare.
Because you asked for it.
