A lot of talk on this issue…….and of all places…. PLM (www.patientslikeme.com)……..where some of my afflicted brothers and sisters w/ MS can’t understand why the government needs to be invovled w/ healthcare reform.

To me this is a no brainer…………….

 

Health care picture

Some call it a "Shark"....I call it a "Three ring circus"

 

Healthcare reform………it’s not a matter of if………it’s a matter of when. And for most of us here…..it can’t come soon enough.

 

A lot of debate on this issue and I can’t really understand.

 

What kind of people are we?

 

If you’re the type of person that is sitting back and saying ……”the Obama administration…bla, bla….bla,….bla………..
Or you’re pointing the finger at so and so politician……..
Or you don’t want to pay higher taxes for someone else’s benefit…….
Or you’ll never get sick…….(doesn’t aply at PLM)
Or the system is just fine the way it is……
And the government should not be invovled…………..
Then this post is probably not for you.

 

You see…..the problem is not w/ the government now wanting to be involved.

The problem is with all the others that will now be forced to deal w/ the government.
(Hospital/doctors, insurance, big phama).

The government is the only kid in the neighborhood big enough to bring down that “three ring circus”

 

Healthcare reform is so……overdue here. The system is so out of whack…..the costs seem to have no limits. And if you are unlucky enough to not have coverage……then I guess you’re just out of luck.

The system is so broken…. …..and if all were going to do is point fingers and say this won’t work…….and that won’t work……….then………

I guess we’re not the Americans I thought we were.

 

“Put your helmet on”…..”Get in the game”…….
It’s OK if you don’t want to play……in the meantime, the hospital will just have more time on how to overcharge me and my insurance for the next months therapy.

The clock is ticking

 

Collectively……….lets make the system better. That is what the talk should be about.

 

What are YOU GOING TO DO????!!!!!!!

 

It’s not about what political party you’re associated with. Your personal wellness doesn’t know anything about “reaching across party lines, political correctness and/or breaking down cultural barriers”

Collectively we can do this…………..how do we do it?……….

 

I’ll start……………

 

“Lets let the government get involved……they are not the problem……..”

“The problem is the three ring circus……..and we need (fill in the blank) to enact healthcare reform by…………………(I wish I had the answer)”

 

I’ll include Laurie’s (my bud from Minnisota) link to show that we’re all going broke if something is not done quickly.

The titlke of the article is: “What’s most likely to bankrupt you”
