American Problems
Do you want a reason why the federal government should not run health care?  Here are several reasons:
  • Social Security
  • Medicare
  • Medicaid
  • Fannie Mae
  • Freddie Mac
  • U.S. Postal Service

The federal government has made a mess of all these federal programs, and they are all either broke or close to it.  To say the federal government is the best way to provide health care is idiotic.

The federal government can do very little, if anything, efficiently.  Federal employee salaries are very high and the federal government is laden with fraud, waste and abuse, which is extremely difficult, expensive and almost impossible to police.

Programs need to be provided at the lowest level of government possible to ensure they are provided as cost effectively as possible.  Privatization of services like the postal service should be explored - Fedex and UPS appear to operate just fine and are subject to the automatic policing of sound business practices by the competitive free market. 

More programs should be provided at the state government level.  The federal government collects taxes to provide so many programs and services, and passes some funding back to the states to provide such services, but it must withhold enormous amounts of funding for oversight or administrative costs.

There are many problems associated with affordable health care.  Placing the federal government in charge of it will never make it more affordable.  It is estimated that about 30% of Medicare funding is wasted through fraudulent claims and other abuses.
