Fables for Adults
"What did we do, back during the years when most Americans had no medical insurance? I did what most people did. I depended on a "single payer"-- myself. When I didn't have the money, I paid off my medical bills in installments. "
Check out the above article by Thomas Sowell.
Did you know that in HCA Hospitals in Emergency Rooms in Tennessee you are offered a 70% discount on your bill if you are uninsured? That is a hefty discount. If your ER bill was $1500, after the discount you would owe $450. Why isn't Obama reporting that to the American People?
I am a RN. Please be assured there is no Healthcare Crisis. No one is turned away from an Emergency Room. We treat everyone the same. We do not care what kind of insurance you have. Registration Personnel collect and verify that information. We do not process it, nor care what policy you have. As an RN, I am there to treat the sickest patient based on acuity and then progressively get to the runny noses and sore throats after the heart attack and gunshot victims are cared for.
I agree that the Healthcare System needs some revamping. Yes, it is too expensive. BUT we do not NEED or do we WANT the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT to intervene and take control of another business/industry.
The FEDERAL GOVERNMENT is never the answer. Think of all the recent financial disasters they have created. BAILOUTS, STIMULUS PACKAGES, ENDLESS WARS. They continue to pillage and plunder the hard working tax payer and reward those whom are comforted by FED. GOVT. HANDOUTS. Cash for Clunkers is a perfect example of FED. GOVT INTERVENTION GONE WRONG AND OF REDISTRIBUTION OF WEALTH.
This is our country. America, awaken your families and neighbors...We will take back our freedoms, lands, and regain our sensibilities.
