PRESS DIGEST

My flesh is crawling

You do not want to have a country with one state-owned health insurer? The government made a serious step towards that yesterday.

You do not want to live in a country where the rules are changed during the game? The government wants to change the rules during the game.

You do not want to come from a country which is renowned for not being a good place to do business, as private investors are treated like foreign enemies by some officials?

If this continues to happen, we will have such a country.

The prime minister is sending a message to private health insurers: Go and earn your money someplace else. And they will go, if there is no other way out.

But before they do, they will sue the state, as it is not normal for one government to allow them to do business and make profit, and the next one to forbid them to do so.

Does anyone in this government understand that the way in which the prime minister communicates with enterpreneurs and businesses is terrible? Does anyone understand that without the capital and people who can manage it, there will remain nothing but hands without jobs in this country?

Does anyone in this government remember that there used to be enormous unemployment and an atmosphere like in a morgue?

Slovakia is not the only place in the world for enterprise and business. However, it is the only place for this government. Sometimes, it makes my flesh crawl.
