"Bernie Marcus Slams Health Care Plan
"ATLANTA -- Bernie Marcus and health care are synonymous. With donations of more than $44 million for the Marcus Autism Center, and an added $25 million to fund Autism Speaks.
He's added almost $18 million to support the Shepherd Center and major programs to rehabilitate returning military personnel. Almost $4 million to the CDC Foundation, and $20 million to enhance the Trauma Center at Grady Hospital.
But when it comes to the government's health care program, Marcus said, "I see a very bleak future for health care in the United States, if we pass government controlled health care. The Congress, the federal workers do not participate. This is for you and for me. I mean come on, give me a break will you, please."
Marcus says the real need is to curb fraud and limit litigation to bring costs into line.
"I don't support the national health care program. I think it's a disaster. I think we should fight it to the death," he said.
Marcus predicts a two-tier system for the United States, similar to England."
