  • Horrible is what I think.Why does it have to be a govy take over? What does govy run effectively? Minnesota has that type of plan and it is a wreck...look at california...alot of their trouble has been too many entitlement programs.

  • Disconnected from reality, the IDEA of nationalized health care can appear great ! But this hypothetical IDEA assumes the same personal control over your health care as the current system. It assumes that doctors & professionals will still get paid enough to keep them from going bankrupt and to attract brilliant people to go through the 8 years and $100,000 of expense to become doctors. It assumes that National Health Care means just magical gov't payments and it ignores the reality of hundreds of new gov't workers to process the reams of more paperwork, and National Health Requirements (you have to be young enough to be worth that knee replacement surgery, or that heart surgery - if you're too old, the gov't bureaucrat is instructed to deny your doctor's request for your treatment)

    Don't be fooled by IDEAS disconnected from reality. The legislation currenlty in the Congress IS ... A ... NIGHTMARE !
    Call your Congressmen!

  • Everyone deserves to be taken care of? What the heck kind of statement is that. People who really feel that way should go live in China. You have to realize that if you want to be "taken care" of you have to give up your freedoms that allow you to take care of yourself.

  • I was never taught in first responder classes to say to patient's "Hold on I cannot splint that leg until I know if you have insurance or not." never told I was to turn anyone away.In fact it is my DUTY that if I go on the call I MUST administer care to the best of my abilities...if I do not do that or say leave the scene ...I CAN BE SUED!
