I am sorry to have to disagree with you if you are implying that we need national health care. That is the last thing we need. I lived with national health care for 23 years, it is called the US Military.
There is NOT one single industrial country with the population of the US that has national health care that works. The two best things our elected officials could do is to get the govenment out of the health care business, then prices will come down as true capitalism and competition will kick in.
The second thing they should do is pass some serious tort reform to prevent ungodly malpractice lawsuits. It has gotten to the point where Doctors run a whole gambit of tests for your rash “just to be sure” instead of using the old fashioned method of letting a doctor use his/her best judgement.
I know that this group is to help people pay off debts and that is what we should be concentrating on.
P.S. You do realize that the proposal Hillary Clinton had when hubby was president would have made it a felony for both you & the doctor if you were to pay & see a different doctor than the one the government assigned to you? Is that what we want?
I was implying nothing….. just stating that our elected officials need to address the health care crises in our country as to these outrageous medical bills that are in reality a budget breaker….
There is no way you can prepare a budget if you get sick and have to go to the hospital.
I will not state my opinion on national health care because this is a blog. However if you would like to email me off list please feel free to do so. I always love a good discussion……
