well, let's see....
a "poor" person breaks their ankle, and well, they go to the hospital emergency room, they get sent to a specialist, who then schedules an
operation, the person goes into the hospital, the operation takes place, and they go home, with very little expense incurred....
now, if the person is decided not to be "poor", and has no insurance, well, that specialist might decide they want a few thousand dollars down
before the surgery, and well...what happens if the person doesn't have a few thousand laying around to give him?? what if they don't have the
connections in state government like I did and no one comes to their rescue??
let's take another example...
a "poor" person finds a lump in the stomach area, goes to the doctor, the doctor orders a bunch of tests...and well, the person goes gets all the
tests done, and hopefully the problem is found....
the insured not so "poor" person finds the lump, goes to the doctor, who orders the tests...and well, the bills start coming in before all the
schedule tests are run, and freaks out...decides to wait, pay off those bills before creating more....nine months later.... (that is close to paying a
hundred dollars a month on the bills), well, it's finally paid off!! to top it off, in order to avoid the bill going to a collection agency, one
must pay it anyway they can (credit card!!) before thirty days!!
the not so poor person is paying taxes, if they live in ny state, they have listened to the polywogs up there telling them year after year how they
have to raise this tax or fee or that tax or fee.....to come up with the resources to pay the ever growing medicaid, medicare, employee
only they can't get their healthcare needs met, even with insurance, without facing bill collectors with their irratating phone calls or
so, my question for you is this....
why is it so acceptable to you for the poor to be provided a standard of living that is so much better than some of those who are paying the tab???
I know for a fact.....the healthcare system in this country, along with those gov't programs to help the "poor" have not, and do not reach out to
all that need the help, heck, I've even wondered if they have somehow managed to rig the economy so that those who are working in certain occupations
that are known to be a little hazardous to their health are intentionally been left out of the loop!
another group who seems to have been left out of the loop are those married moms out there who have chosen to be stay at home moms!! hey if they
would just go to work, find an employer who will offer insurance as a benefit, well, there's a better chance of them being insured!! having your
healthcare revolving around your employer like it does....seems to be more of an incentive for those mothers to be out working, when here we hear from
the far right (the ones opposing any type of healthcare reform the most!!), that all the moms in the country should be home, tending the kids....
what do they have against women having health insurance?? and well, what if the mom CAN'T WORK?? ya think maybe it just might provide her an
incentive to just make herself a tad bit "poorer" and then she can have the healthcare, the cellphone, and well, a whole lot of stuff they can't
no, we need healthcare reform!! it's gotten too costly for gov'ts, for businesses who want to provide insurance for their employees, for the
people! The current system is really unjust, and will become more and more unjust as more and more taxpayers find the care out of their reach
financially, and yet, will still be seeing their taxes being raised.....with healthcare costs to the government being the excuse being used!
I just have the feeling that obama's plan will be doing more to increase the injustice than it will be helping...expanding what we have now, which is
what I am reading into what is being said about what they want to do, isn't the reform that is needed!! reducing the costs....even if it means we
might have to live without some of the new research and developement and state of the art crap, well, that would help....
if this nation truly holds freedom up as high as they make it out they do, well, independence must be maintained....that means the person, not the
government, not some big insurance company, pays the bills!
