Health care needs fixing, but not by government

It's almost time for Monday Night Football again and another resounding chorus of Hank Williams Jr.'s "All My Rowdy Friends Are Coming Over Tonight." Washington politicians must feel like rowdiness was diverted to town hall meetings where irate citizens confront "Obamacare" head on.

Pundits of government health care find themselves pinned on the goal line trying to run an "end around" public outrage.

Armed only with a 1,200-page playbook - health care bill - they haven't even read doesn't help. Isn't this the same government that bankrupted Social Security, Medicare, Fannie Mae and the Postal Service? Didn't they just pass a stimulus package that we'll never pay for? How about a cap and trade bill that inflates utilities so high that Gwinnett's puny water increase looks like a drop in the proverbial bucket? Why turn our health care over to those who under-estimated the federal deficit by a mere two trillion dollars?

Most agree that health care needs mending but don't think government is up to it. If you disagree, I'd be happy to sell you some swamp land at a deflated price. Then you can stand in your own muddy quagmire until government forces its on you.
