This is really a touchy topic for many people. I for one think we SHOULD have universal healthcare. People say it will make healthcare
rationed....well is it not already rationed? You'll get dumped by your insurance company if you get a major illness in a heartbeat. If your already
sick and have insurance and lose it (say changing jobs) they nail you with pre-existing conditions. I'll say that i think just about everything the
gov't touches they tend to screw up, but i'll also say that SOMETHING needs to change, how we go about doing it is what needs to be figured out.
On a side note, do people not realize that its BIG business to keep terminal patients alive for an extra month or two. A lot of the time these people
are kept alive and in agony, or in cases like stroke victims they simply lay there, trapped inside a body that does not work and could not survive
without massive life support. I don't know about you, but i'd rather just die than live trapped inside a shell, unable to communicate or move.
