I’ll be frank, I am disgusted with the leadership of this country, on both sides of the isle however moreso with the controlling party. Having extensive experience with the Health Care system over the past 20+ years I can say with much authority, we have some of the best health care available on the Planet! It has degraded over the past 20 years however this is due in large part to the culture of greed and increasing government involvement. Most people speaking out and complaining about the high costs of health care have absolutely NO idea what they are talking about. They have listened to the trash promoted by poloticians and people like Micheal Moore*.
Twenty or so years ago the government put the insurance companies im charge of health care because the insurance companies complained and lobbied the Doctors were making to much money and ordering tests that were unnecessary. Sound familiar? Roll forward twenty years and we have people complaining that insurance companies make to much money and to many tests are being denied! Sound familiar now? So who is going to rush in and fix the problem? The same people who created it!! And ‘We the People’ are stupid enough and short sighted enough to think they have our interests in mind.
I have two questions for everyone.
First, why do/did people have a problem with Doctors making a lot of money? I don’t hear anyone asking for sports reform because the athletes are making to much money and that is driving up ticket prices! Maybe that is next, and then in twenty years we can go after the owners for making to much money?! That IS a valid example. But for some reason we had/have a problem with the people who are responsible for keeping us healthy making to much money. I call that jealousy. Was there abuse? Yes, but there were systems in place to stop that problem.
Second, why are people almost always willing to think that the people who caused the problem are capable of fixing it or more importantly admitting they made a mistake? Because most people are stupid and incapable of critical thought. If you find that offensive then that statement probably applies to you.
The business reasons against Health Care are obvious to any rational, realistic person but that is best said here.
I could go on for pages but need to go find a way to pay for my increasing health care coverage!
