My take on health-care reform

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , , , , , — Hugsie @ 7:54 am

I think it’s very hard to disagree that this country has NO MONEY to spend on free universal heath care, or anything else for that matter.

This is why everyone is in a panic since if the US’gubment offers free health care would totally undercut private medical insurances. This is why these companies are going apeshit at town-hall meetings during the congressional summer break. They just can’t compete with that.  But then again most of these larger private companies are just as evil, corrupt and incompetent as any government ran institution.  So would the net result be moot?

So, the medical care we would end up with would be rationed, since everyone’s health care would consolidated into a single administrative body, which sounds like a clerical/administrative nightmare to organize.  Talk about prime opportunity to expose incompetence, and exploit fraud.

What DOES need to be done is health care REFORM, to get the ridiculous costs down, and THEN maybe we can talk about free universal health-care.  But Obama wants to do this on one fell swoop so he can be put into the history books that he did it (yay!) and not take the time to fix the economy first, which he won’t be able to do even if he does serve two full terms. So he going all for broke… literally.

All these talking heads keep throwing the phrases “universal health-care” and “health-care reform” as if it’s exactly the same thing, IT IS NOT! I wish people would make this distinction more clear to everyone.

  1. I agree with everything you just said 🙂

    Not just health care reform though, but also court reform, insofar as it making cheaper for Doctors to practice medicine and less wasted on doing every diagnosis under the sun.

    • More like lawyer reform if you think about it. People are quick to sue for whatever reason. Has nothing to do with if it’s right or not, since you can can file a suit for any reason; the lawyers get paid regardless.
