President Ronald Reagan said government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem. Can we all agree that healthcare is (or should be) something between a patient and a doctor or nurse? Can we also agree that anytime government gets involved, there are often numerous negative unintended consequences? So how have we gotten so close to a Big Government takeover of the American healthcare system? Sadly, this attempted giant expansion of Big Government (and the IRS) has a stack of intended negative consequences. Hopefully, it is never too late for a dose of common sense. Having the Democratics "fix" our healthcare system is like having arsonists help fight a fire. How about healthcare reform that lessens government involvement between the doctor/patient relationship?
