Recently, more than 3000 patients were subjected to unsterilized equipment for colonoscopies. Since 2004, patients have been exposed to life-threatening diseases, from HIV to Hepatitis. Not only do these victims have to be tested for diseases, everyone they have been in contact with should be warned also...This has happened in more than one state!
Do you think this is an indication of the quality of care and expertise we all would receive if we had a universal healthcare system?

medicaid may have processed easily but I can tell you from the point of view of someone who was ON it once upon a time it was AWFUL. You were treated like dirt by the nurses and doctors. You waited HOURS! and you are treated like they are doing you a huge favor and you should kiss the ground they walk on! I was SO glad when we got PI and were treated better! And yeah it was ...no co pay, no paper work. You just had to be ok with crappy service and attitude! The people have ZERO incentive to treat you better. You are stuck, and they KNOW it!
