See how the lie is set up? The premise put forward — that everyone needs medical attention at some point, and virtually everyone needs insurance to pay for it, is put forward as a “fait accompli” without first asking the following questions:
- Has it always been this way? Can you, for example, show us that health insurance was necessary in, oh, 1776? 1850? 1913? 1953? 1970?
- Has everyone “needed” medical attention “at some point” historically as well? Was that true in 1776? 1850? 1913? 1953? Or 1970?
It’s a fact that virtually everyone has in fact “needed” medical attention “at some point” historically. But America, and the rest of the world, managed to economically progress for hundreds of years without force-placed “insurance” or the government being materially involved in health care.
An honest inquiry is therefore forced to ask the following question: What happened?
That’s relatively simple: Government happened.
