Thank You Senator Tom Coburn

Senator Tom Coburn, Republican of Oklahoma, gave amazing testimony on C-Span 2 before the Senate Health Committee about the harms government run health care will bring:

It will force doctors to participate in government programs and deny liberty.

It will decrease competition among insurance companies and care facilities.

It will decrease choices in treatment because the government will always have its eye on cutting costs, not finding the best treatment for the individual patient.

Government already has burdened citizens and insurance companies with high costs because it underfunds Medicare and Medicaid, effectively on passing costs.

Great job Senator Coburn!
