    Our Mr. Weiner is saying he wants to save money with a single payer health plan.
    The Postmaster General says the post office can save millions, maybe billions if they can cover all employees with a single provider who will give the lowest rates because of competitive bidding.
    Even though USPS is about 600,000 employees, it is still a small percentage of the total workforce of perhaps 100 million.
    The question is, is consolidation of many employees under 1 health plan or provider getting to be more like a government run health plan rather than more like a free market health plan? Will it really lower costs or is it a fake-out that creates a powerball account for healthcare salesmen?

    It provides control of the citizenry. If/when we fall into a single payer system, the government can then use the blunt instrument of "being healthy" by denying treatment to people because they engaged in "unhealthy behavior." Like you drink too many sodas, or smoke, or eat red meat.

    Remember, a Right-Wing dictatorship demands obedience to the State. A Left-Wing dictatorship demands unity of thought. This country is rapidly turning into a LW dictatorship, thanks to our Glorious Leader.
