There was a meme, it said, “If you didn’t want old elitist men making health care decisions – you shouldn’t have put the federal government in charge of the health care system”.
This transcends the puppet-show of “Right” versus “Left” – “Republican” versus “Democrat”. This is about common sense.
When it comes to a woman’s body (or, any body for that matter) – the government (a collection of individuals who use taxes, law, and force to implement policy) shouldn’t have any control. Period. When government (which, currently, in our country, is a large portion of old, elitist men – both Republican and Democrat) decides what you can and can’t have for your health – this can be really dangerous for women. Why in the world would we let them decide what is best?
A woman is best served when she is in complete control of her body. her health care, and her decision whether or not to take birth control. It being her responsibility, it should be a right to be able to pay for that – without the government being involved. It is a service, a choice, a health-care decision. and something that strong women would WANT to pay for. Being able to pay for it yourself means that no one can tell you what you can or cannot do – it is your money, your body, your pocketbook.
If women were able to keep more of the money that they earn (e.g. abolish the federal income taxes that go to nothing of benefit to Americans and women), then they could make a lot more choices what they do with that money. It should never be in the government’s hands. And, it should never be in a corporation’s hands. People should always be able to make a personal choice what they do and don’t want to do with their body – taking healthcare out of the federal government’s hands – is a great start to protecting women.
Old, elitist men, who refuse to bring in the next generation of leaders and instead have decided to die in their chairs, sitting in Congress – doing NOTHING for the young people of this country – will not fix our problems. It is up to us. And if we wan’t to find solutions, we are going to have to get rid of the puppet show that the Republicans and the Democrats are putting on concerning health care. Women could be very good leaders by taking responsibility for their health care and getting important decisions out of the government’s hands. It is your morality, your money, your body, your pocketbook, your natural right – protect it – and get government out of it.
