Thread Name: BS: Nationalized Healthcare, good? bad?
Subject: RE: BS: Nationalized Healthcare, good? bad?
I think Akenaton's analogy is correct. ...that being said, a lot of the debate, here in America, at this time, is that we cannot afford this now, and it was wrought with a lot of deceit, and pushed through against the will of the majority of the people. That is FACT, whether you want to admit it or not.
Personally, I believe we need not only 'health care' REFORM, but insurance company reform, as a separate thing...though they are so interwoven. Medicine should not be a political issue, nor should who gets what treatment be based on political values, but rather the NEEDS of the infirmed....and health care can be properly executed as a SERVICE, to the public, and not as an usurpation of power, greed, or politically driven agendas.
If we can help with the needy, let's do it....but do it honestly, effectively and efficiently. Let the MEDICAL community, have a real say, as to what they need, to do their job...and shame on both sides for using doctors and nurses, as mouth pieces to promote either side of the political agendas!
