ok, first off, if you think in america that in a hospital you are getting anything other than the absolute minimum, think again. I as a hospital
worker, know a person is considered "cured" as soon as their insurance runs out. Now, we have a health insurance system, but that still sure as
hell does not give us the ability to choose our care. How many health insurance programs allow you to choose alternative therapies for your provider?
or naturopathic medicine? very few.... most insurances only cover conventional medicine, and many only cover their specific choice of medicines. As
far as people not being treated for not having money, you must be sick! In other countries you will get the best therapy available for ;your illness.
here, if you dont have the money for "optional" things like keeping an eye in the case of eye injury, or the surgury to replace a limb or finger
in case of amputation, your getting stitched up without it (youll live) and sent out the door. It takes money and knowledge to ask the doctors for a
heavy metals test, a celiac test, or anything out of the ordinary, and if you dont have both, your not getting the proper treatment.
And ive said whats wrong with Hillarys plan and i'll say it again. If we want national health care, the LAST thing we need is insurance
companies taking a chunk before the health industry gets it. ABOLISH the health insurance groups and pay directly to the hospitals. And i also
have an answer to the people saying the problem is our government would botch it like they do all things. Essentially you are saying our government
is too corrupt to accomplish anything correctly...if thats the case then why arent you out there in arms taking your government down? If they cant
manage the health and care of their people appropriately, then our government system needs to be torn down by force and replaced. THEN we can
institute a fair fully representative government, and THEN we can institute a universal health care system that we all deserve.
