DON’T WE BELONG TO THE PERSON WHO PAYS OUR BILLS?

healthcareWhat is the difference between an adult and a child? Adults pay their own bills. Children, on the other hand, belong to their parents because their parents pay the bills.

Why ask such an obvious question? Consider what Socialism involves. In a Socialist State, the government redistributes the wealth. Whenever the government wants it, by definition what belongs to the “rich” belongs to the State. Because of the great “generosity” of the “rich,” our glorious leaders pay our bills. Therefore, we belong to our leaders.

Want an example? Consider Have You Gotten Your Biometric Screening Letter from Your Employer, Yet? Here Freedom, by the way considers yet another intrusive aspect of Obamacare.

biometricBig Brother has arrived...neatly packaged in “The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act” AKA Obamacare. Hubby received a notice today at work about “FREE BIOMETRIC SCREENINGS” for himself and his dependents that could save us from $17-$34 a month on premiums. (which, of course, doesn’t do much to  offset the 29% increase which went into effect July 1, but I digress).

Right now, the biometric screening is voluntary. Which is a good thing because we have no intention of selling out our privacy for $34 a month. However, employer biometric screening and individual wellness plans will be MANDATORY under Obamacare in the not too distant future.

From a press release from a company called BIOQ, published August 14, 2013:

(continued here)

When we do not each accept our obligation to pay our own bills, we lose the right to make our own choices. Instead, we become the property of another’s dreams and ambitions.

You don’t think what you eat is any of your employer’s business? If a well-connected busybody such as Michelle Obama thinks otherwise, her government can say you are wrong, and you cannot object. That well-connected busybody will just have you classified as an extremist (a Tea Party racist, perhaps) who doesn’t know what’s good for him.

  1. Are you saying that, because we have had for many years this cockamamie system where employers bear at least a partial burden of health care costs, that we “belong” to our employers? I always looked at it as the employer adding a benefit to make my employment with him attractive to me. It’s a goofy system, I’ll concede, and Obamacare just continued essentially what we have had since WWII, but I’ve never felt “owned” by my employer.

    1. You called the system cockamamie. Why do you think it’s cockamamie?

      Whereas employer provided health insurance is a market place innovation, Obamacare is a Socialist system. Socialist systems create monopolies and eliminate choice. Masterminds choose for us.

      Whenever we put someone else between ourselves and the person providing us a good or service, we sacrifice some degree of control. When we put our employer in charge of our medical care or investments (401K), in return for tax benefits and group rates, we sacrifice those choices we might otherwise have made. Nonetheless, we give up this control as the result of our own choice, not someone else’s choice. We also retain the option to take that choice back.

      Note also that employer provided health insurance predates the tax benefit. So it makes some economic sense. Nevertheless, I would rather government not play favorites in the market place. I would happily see the tax benefit done away with.
