As we look to the future of health care in the United States, we need to consider our past history.  We “baby boomers” have worked hard and now want “our due”.  Our parents have or are still benefiting from Social Security and Medicare.  Now it’s our turn.  But how have we “managed” the health care of our families during our lives?

We have managed to eliminate large costs in some families by aborting our children due to inconvenience or “not having enough money” to provide for their well-being.  Approximately 49,000,000 children have been aborted since 1973 according to the National Right to Life organization.  This action saved us untold billions over the past 36 years.  Unfortunately, every action has a reaction.  I do not think the magnitude of the consequences of this action ever crossed our minds.

Now, we face the near future of either Social Security and Medicare going bankrupt in the next few years, millions with no health insurance at all, or going to a universal health care plan for our country.  President Obama is stressing the need for universal health care.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has plans to push through a health care proposal that would require only 20 hours of debate and a simple 50-vote majority to pass.  The catch is (1) it is astronomically expensive and (2) it will limit the access to health care that we presently have.  There is no way around this dilemma.   We cannot continue to receive the health care coverage we have become accustomed to when this cost is transferred to our government.

So, I come back to my post’s title.  We did not have the money to care for the 49 million children when they most needed our love and support.  Now, we who are aging and becoming more dependent find ourselves in a similar position.  Where will the money come from to take care of us? 

God does not overlook our sin just because it was inconvenient to do what was right.  In Psalm 106Proverbs 6, and Jeremiah 7, He says what He thinks about those who shed innocent blood.  Hosea 8:7 states, “They sow the wind and reap the whirlwind”. Our selfishness in denying our children their lives means they are not here to support our economy, Social Security, Medicare, etc.  We will “reap” a much greater monetary disaster in our future due to this. 

Our country will “pay” for our children who are no longer with us one way or the other, and we “boomers” will receive the care we deserve, whether we like it or not.

I keep hearing people say, “Why does President Obama constantly talk down the economy?  He needs to offer encouragement and hope to the American people.”    I believe he is doing this to gain support for his (or should I say Nancy Pelosi’s) Stimulus Plan. 

Let’s say you come to me saying you have a horribly sore throat and I tell you, “Yes, I can see your throat is red.  It’s pretty minor though.  Take this terrible tasting medicine and you’ll feel much better tomorrow”.  You’ll probably think to yourself, “Well, my throat does hurt, but man, that stuff sounds gross.  I think I’ll just suffer a little while longer and my throat will probably feel better in a day or two”.   However, what if I tell you, “Your throat is horrific looking.  You may have a deadly disease.  This is terrible tasting medicine, but if you don’t take it, you may be dead by next week.”  After hearing this, you’re going to be more inclined to take the yucky stuff instead of just waiting the sore throat out.

This is what’s happening now.  President Obama doesn’t want us to feel hopeful quite yet.  If we did, we wouldn’t be  so inclined to accept this massive spending plan that will cripple our country and place our children and grandchildren in “slave labor” to the government.  He wants to make sure we are thoroughly convinced that this is the only way out of the predicament we are in.  After the majority of the people can see no other solution than his, then he will begin bringing us back to hope.  But first he must convince us that we need this course of action.  Unfortunately, he has a lot of convincing to do, so it may be a while before we hear “the sun will come up tomorrow” from Obama.
