Another question got me thinking. There are some people that believe that UHC is the way to go, but they detest the treatment our vets are getting in our veteran hospitals. I am wondering, does everyone realize that this is the health care we will get under UHC? Are you willing to set your standards so low that you lose your choice of Dr. and treatments? Obviously, this isn't an issue for those who don't have insurance, as I am sure they will be happy with anything they don't have to pay out of pocket for.

Do you ladies not realize that people without insurance get the best of care? All they have to do is show up at a hospital emergency room? They come to the ER with post-nasal drips, colds, rashes, scrapes and minor burns, all things that could be cared for at less cost at a doctor's office, but they don't need to worry because they never pay anyway. The hospital CAN'T refuse to treat them by law.

I think there needs to be some sort of health care reform, to be sure.
However, I don't support UHC, I think it's a terrible road for our country to do down. The sheer number of our population tells me that this won't work for us and that it will help bankrupt us faster than any of his other ideas. JMO.

UHC is for people who don't have any kind of insurance. When you have your private insurance ,YOU CAN KEEP THAT. We can't compare how UHC works in other countries and how we think it would work in U.S. it SEEMS TO WORKS JUST FINE IN Massachusetts.

U.S. it SEEMS TO WORKS JUST FINE IN Massachusetts.
The real lesson of Massachusetts is that reform proponents won't tell Americans the truth about what "universal" coverage really means: Runaway costs followed by price controls and bureaucratic rationing.
In Massachusetts's latest crisis, Governor Deval Patrick and his Democratic colleagues are starting to move down the path that government health plans always follow when spending collides with reality -- i.e., price controls. As costs continue to rise, the inevitable results are coverage restrictions and waiting periods. It was only a matter of time.
I guess its not as glowing in Massachusetts as some believe.
