I believe that "Health Care" has become a political pawn "talking point" for both candidates. I do not see either candidates plans being a
solution to the problem.
Certainly - both candidates offer temporary patches which seek to provide amicable resolution to some
Americans, but it still only covers the
wound - it doesn't disinfect it.
I believe you should attack the high cost of health care (not insurance) at its source.
High education costs
High costs of living for the first few years out of med school
If you help lower the costs, or help pay for the costs, of the education our finest Doctors, then you drive down the costs of their procedures, as
they will have less bills to pay.
I believe a stronger approach to higher education is in order.
From personal experiences, i can attest that the current forms of Federal funding are completely inadequate
(refer to the FAFSA
FAFSA seems to exist as a means of acquiring enrollment at a community college, and as a means to begin
to help pay for education at a
University offering higher, and more prestigious, forms of education.
FAFSA should be expanded and greater funded to include people who make more than the bare minimum. Just because you make 75,000 dollars a year
doesn't mean you can afford $300,000 for med school.
