I would like to start my argument against health care reform by talking about my experience on Medicaid.
Being able to afford pre-natal care on my own would have been nice. With the price of seeing a doctor what it is and my financial position, that wasn't going to happen. Having my son and not being $10,000 in debt to hospitals was good, but telling a social worker every aspect of my home life wasn't.
It seems the more money you have, the more privacy you can afford. Many of the articles I've read state the opponents of healthcare reform are rich elitists. The truth is many Americans resist it because there is already so much invasion of our privacy. I'm striving to sustain the health of my family with out government involvement because I know my abilities as an individual. I also believe in the power of the American people to decide whats best for them.
The concept of conservatism, as I understand it, calls for as little government as possible. There doesn't seem to be anything anti-poor or discriminatory about that idea.
