Why We Need Health Care Reform


Just a reminder.

I am a big supporter of healthcare reform. I am most concerned with how it is done. I suppose that isn't very novel, but I want to see a plan.

Too many people yell about it but fail to do anything other than moan.

Absolutely.

health care reform that works:
1) let people bye insurance cross-state
2) let insurance companies charge more for smokers (some states this is illegal)

your done - well - at least it will make things MUCH better

The unfortunate thing is that many people, whether they have private or public healthcare, do not want to pay for it. They DO, however want to moan about paying for it, no matter what system they are in.

Agree with Jack and beepbeepitsme.
The system would have to work and, more importantly, is has to work over the long haul.

Whatever system you choose will have downsides -- this is important, I think.

Please stop confusing Health Care with Health Insurance.

They are not the same thing.

Also, by law, you can not deny people health care in the U.S. the question is who is paying for it, and how much are they paying, and where do they go to get what they need.

So it is garbage and a lie to say that people are dieing due to lack of health care.

Finally. It's too bad the anti-healthcare propagandists are so skilled.

Thanks, dude. This is a really good post. The next time I hear someone screaming about "socialism" I'm going to say, "Yeah. OK. If that's what socialism is, then let's have some. Now."

The priorities of Americans is messed up, we will spend trillions of dollars to kill "terrorists", but will not spend billions to fix our health-care. Sad, sad country.
