Under 20% of Americans are uninsured. Lets say 50million given the fact that Obama stimulus and jobs program resulted in more unemployed, including many who have exhausted unemployment benefits and are no longer counted as unemployed ( using Obama math)
It would cost 20billion a year to insure them all. ( i used what i pay for healthcare as the base formula -since I'm self employed- however grouping them under one plan should be considerably less )
Ok Where to get the Funds without raising taxes and burdening those 50% or so that still have full time jobs?
The USA gives 50 billion a year to Foreign Countries ( source below)
Now before my fellow americans from across the political aisle get wiggy...
I would suggest we just cut just the Aid to those nations that do not embrace civil rights equality and who do not adhere to human rights.
I think we can all agree that to fund those who jail or imprison homosexuals , who legally allow Honor killing or only penalize via a small fee paid , or those who don't allow religious freedom- or who condone the extermination of a people or country should not be rewarded.
In doing this we would also have an extra 20billion to use to pay down the deficit.
What do you say Liberals?
* I would also recommend that anyone on public Health care 0r Welfare get tested for drug use
If they fail they have to do road work or sanitation and be tested weekly or go to prison where they can produce whatever it is the Chinese are making and importing to these USA for pennies an hour. There labor will help small manufacturers of technology or widgets compete.
