Health care reform is good, but not a new system. Why not just tweak the system that has worked for us for a very long time. For example, drop the pre-existing conditions and give people a choice between basic coverage, and the best coverage--all plans--let the market dictate price. If the price is too high, people will not buy--if people need help to get coverage, issue vouchers for the people to use for insurance only--insurance of their choice--basic care which they can improve on if they have the money to get the better options.
I believe that HR3200 is a scam to take over the system, but when we dump Scummy , we dump all of his apointees and can file criminal charges against them. I am against any one in the government telling any one what to do in any way shape or form. A prime example of why the government should not be able to run any damned thing was back in 1993, the "Mustang Ranch" in Nevada a known legal brothel was taken over by the government because the owners were tax evaders.
The government couldn't sell whisky and whores and make a profit. Now can I state my case any clearer?
I don't want anything this administration wants to give me. I don't trust them with my country, I don't like how they are running it. How they waste our money. Who they pick for their cabinet. Of course I don't trust them to take over my familes health care. Look who would be running it. People that the President pick, not people Congress picks. What ever happened to THIS IS AMERICA, WE MAKE OUR OWN CHOICES, WE HAVE FREEDOM! I don't get it, why is the government even involved, when I pay for my own insurance? I want them to get out of the way of the American people. We can fix the economy, all they do is mess everything up, spend money we don't have. They are all out of their minds!
1. The Government does not belong in the insurance business, and it definitely does not belong in the business of providing health care.
2. Whatever the Government says their program will cost, the actual cost will be 3 to 4 times as much.
3. The US needs an improved health care system - lower costs, better care, high percentage of citizens covered. A system run by the Federal government will not be an improvement - socialism is not the answer.
I feel some reform is in order, but having the government in control of our healthcare is NOT the kind of reform we need. We do not need a complete overhaul of our system. We need to address tort reform and find ways to make Insurance companies more competitive. The government needs to stay out of the health care business and out of my home.
It always comes down to priorities. The whole state of health care in the USA reflects that. Those who don't want it spend their money on stuff. They invest in now at the expense of the inevitable. Which is that their bodies are not going to function perfectly and will need repair. The sense that one has the right to health care and that they are entitled to it as proported by Liberals fuels this fallacious belief. So when health disaster stricks it is the reponsibility of the state to take care of it. Never mind that the money which is earned could have been spent on the right priority. For those who are simply unable to provide for themselves due to circumstances utterly beyond their control I believe that they can be provided for by the charities in place. Government intervention always negatively effects that phenomenon.
Goverment run healthcare would be a disaster waiting to happen. Just look at the veteran's administration way of doing things it is pathetic to say the least. How will the goverment control everyone's healthcare when they can not even run the v.a healthcare system efficiently????
Besides i would not want their healthcare and all i see it as is a means to control the populace. I do not trust them for anything bottom line.
- Enable tax equalization so individuals who purchase their own health insurance can do so with pre-tax dollars, as is the case for people who get insurance through their employers.
- Allow insurance companies to compete across state lines, which will a give people greater choices and increase portability of insurance.
- Remove state-imposed mandates regarding what must be included in a health insurance plan, allowing people to purchase the insurance that they want.
- Make costs transparent so consumers understand the costs associated with treatment received.
- Reform tort law to limit lawsuits that drive up doctors’ malpractice insurance costs.
- Reform Medicare, which is heading toward bankruptcy, and is evidence of the government’s inability to run such programs effectively.
This is hard to answer with the options given. There are some, like myself, who voted "No it's fine the way it is". When, in reality, I do think we need some form of Health Care Reform, but we need reform that take in to consideration, what the "LEGAL,WORKING, TAXPAYING CITIZEN" wants in so far as reform goes. Firstly & foremost, there should be "NO" health care benefits for the millions of illegals that are milking our country"TO DEATH". There should also be limited benefits for the millions upon mllions of professional welfare receipents. That means that congress should not have final say in any reform that is not passed by legal taxpaying citizens, because as we are all well aware, this is just a few of the avenues that our crooked politicians use to buy votes.
The first reform we need is to limit the terms of all elected (part time) employees to (2) terms in office, payscale & raises decided by the citizens & no retirement benifits & no self indulgent "Gold Key" health coverage. These people can well afford to furnish their on retirement & health care & should have their enormus salaries cut now & forever. Also, anyone who is a voting member in congress that votes on any bill they have not thouroughly read, should be impeached-PERIOD.
Like the old saying goes, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it!" I went to a Town Hall this morning with our Congressman Dan Boren of Oklahoma, a Blue Dog Democrat. It was a great Town Hall, no shouting only a few outbursts of agreement. But one of the things that the Congressman brought up and no one picked up on, was, with the current Healthcare, if an un-insured person goes to the ER, who pays for it?? Answer You and Me!! Welllllllll, with Obamacare, if an insured goes to the ER, who pays for it? ANSWER, YOU AND ME!!! The current way of doing business is working fine, so don't mess with it. The current law says, no person shall be turned away from medical treatment because of inability to pay. We are paying for it that way and will pay for it with Obamacare, difference, our taxes will go wayyyyyyyyyyyyy up to pay for it with government run healthcare and they will foul it up just like they foul up everything they put their fingers on.
What? I checked the poll and can't believe how many people DID NOT vote no. Could this poll be warped? Could it have been intruded upon by bots? Not sure, but judging from the posts, there is something wrong here. Am I the only one who thinks so? Seriously, as a person who works in the profession, the only changes I can think of that would work for all would be the elimination of all the middlemen (who happen to be the ones sucking up all the cash) and elimination of the burdensome "rules and regulations" that have been imposed upon the providers, which take up valuable time and resources and direct emphasis away from patient care. Let the doctors, nurses and patients work it all out with less interference. Less is more sometimes. We have the best healthcare system in the world even with all its "warts".
If they get control over our healthcare it will go straight down the craper and besides all it is about is control over the masses plain and simple. I say keep your hands off of it and by the way we should not have to provide illegals with healthcare. If you illegals want healthcare why don't you all go back where you come from and get it because i do not feel that i should give you a free ride on my hard earned tax dollars. Understood??
