I have a solution to the entire health-care crisis.  It’s pretty simple; I don’t know why I didn’t think of it already!  The problem, of course, isn’t so much that health-care is too expensive, but that people don’t make enough money to pay for it.  (I know, six of one, half a dozen of the other.)  But stay with me.

From now on, everyone who has employees has to pay their employees $1000 more each month, to cover the cost of health insurance.  Ouila!  Problem solved!  Thank you, I’ll be expecting my awards, accolades and honorary economics degrees anytime now. 

What?  They can’t afford to do that?  Well, in the parlance of reform, ‘they can’t afford not to do it!’  Simple.  Just increase the charge for every service or product by, say, a factor of ten.  Maybe even a factor of three!  Then, the customers can pay the business, which can pay the employees, who can pay the insurers, etc.  Again, ouila!

This is getting annoying.  You mean, the country can’t afford that kind of increase in costs on services or products?  Wait a minute…

Could it be, then, that we can’t afford $1 Trillion dollars in new expenses, mostly via taxation?

Dang it…I thought I had it all figured out.
