  • Yes, hopefully. The true way to keep healthcare cheap is for us to be healthy yourselves. A Medicaid/Medicare doctor on the news here said he wants more patients because its better for America because healthy people live longer, take less time off work, and have more energy. He said his "make everyone healthy" agenda does work because he does things like making patients with BMIs over 30 to see nutritionists or to keep diet and exercise journals because it's cheaper than weight loss surgery and a lifetime of diabetes and heart problems. He also calls his patients if he hasn't seen them in a year and makes them see eye doctors each year. And, because of how many patients he has a large staff. but he said the majority of his patients are in good or better health and he wants to keep them that way.

  • Yes. Prevention is always better than treatment.

  • All the money that was supposed to be allocated for stem cell research, biotechnology, nanotechnology, diagnostics, information technology, vaccines, and organ transplants will be used to ensure 30,000,000 under the New Health Care System. Postponing these medical advancements and research doesn't help our health.

  • No. People don't PREVENT now. Why would start living a healthy life now? People are still going to eat bad food and be inactive.

  • I believe it will.... More people will be covered, therefore more people will be going in for regular check-ups, or to see a doctor when they feel ill, instead of just letting it go until it's too late.
