National Health Insurance is the enemy because it will mean socialized medicine. This will cost the average taxpayer more for his health care, allow federal bureaucrats to invade his physician-patient relationship, and produce assembly-line medical care. On top of that, taxpayers will have to pay for other people's misfortunes—even sex-change (Myra Breckinridge) operations—and eventually the government may adopt euthanasia. You know, kill off the old people to hold down the cost of keeping them alive.
The author is not a physician; he purports to look objectively at the evils of socialized medicine from a patient's standpoint. Hardly. Mr. Edwards, editor
