Big Brother

What steps do you take to protect your financial information on-line? With the current health care law slated to go into full effect in 2014 the state and federal government will have your tax information online to determine your eligibility for premium support or Medicaid. This invasion of your privacy is now funded by the federal government and will also cost you through State taxes as of January 2015.

This action is a consequence of out-dated thinking by our political leaders who are wedded to central planning and price controls that have failed all over the world. Our nation is bankrupt, our employment situation is dire, our health care costs are out of control and consequently we do not have the resources to adequately educate our children. In-spite of this reality the new health care law is a maze of central planning and bureaucratic confusion. Health care exchanges, a key feature of the new law, is a prime example of this out-dated mentality.

An alternative method of health care, such currently implemented in Indiana through Health Savings accounts, allows state workers to have high quality care at an affordable price with no bureaucratic control.

You should be responsible for your own health

Health Savings Accounts for every American will give our people the incentive to eat, shop and behave in a manner more consistent with healthy living. For example, if your doctor can show you that it will cost your health savings account a lot more money to eat junk food, you will not do so. This economic incentive to provide healthy foods will in turn render easier access to these foods, increasing jobs through growing localy and improving the environment through sustainable methods.

On the other hand, we could continue to be directed by our centralized government and watch our national debt increase, our health care continue to fail, and our environment deteriorate.

Empower the Individual

The reality is that we have an increasing number of our citizens who are incapable of succeeding in a competitive worldwide industrial world. Instead of focusing on the resources and energy we need to devote to educating future generations our political leadership devotes its energies on a failed health care policy. Using Health Savings Accounts funded by tax policy, where individuals are in charge of their own health care, we could be spending our National resources on the adequate education of our youth, enabling them to succeed in a competitive global economy.
