Get Paid to See the Doctor

Going socialized medicine one better, NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg wants to pay people to go to the doctor.

The idea is to break the dreaded cycle of poverty by inspiring people to get checkups and stay healthy enough to work. Bureaucrats are still trying to decide on the amounts of the payouts. Supposedly this will be financed privately, but not for long, once being paid to go to the doctor becomes established as an entitlement.

In New York, Bloomberg is regarded as a Republican.

"Come and get it."

He's a RINO, and his politics reflect that. He only switched to the Republican party because he knew there was too much competition within the Democratic party.
