Health care reform is needed in this country! Have you spent hours on the phone with an insurance company trying to get coverage for yourself, a loved on, or a patient? Until you have you won't understand how badly this is needed. Some eighteen year old tells you NO, and the CEO is off on some private island enjoying life and his gigantic bonus while the patient has a huge gaping hole in their abdomen and is expected to do their own IVs and wound care at home....yeah that's a real story!!!
How many Americans have had to declare bankruptcy because of medical bills even WITH health insurance coverage?
But no one wants the government to take it over completely, and the plans in Congress are NOT about doing this....politicians may not be too bright, but they aren't that stupid....everyone knows how BAD the post office is or has had to deal with the DMV.
Don't listen to the scare tactics. Get some facts. Here's a great article from the Washington Post.
