This is the level of treatment we can all expect once government mandated insurance kicks in.
Hospitals will be overwhelmed with new patients and care will be rationed.
"You've already used up both your annual visits, come back next year when you're eligible".
Welcome to the future.
Sad, sad case. Poor woman.
your statement, I'm afraid doesn't even make sense!!!
why would the hospitals be overwhelmed???
maybe because people who so far have been left out of the loop will finally have a way into the loop....
and for the most part, who are those people who are now the m ost out of the loop??
it not the people who are so drug/achohol addicted that they couldn't work an 8 hour shift...
it's not the single moms who stay at home and raise their babies....
it's not the elderly who are too old to work...
it's not the children' who are too young to work.....
no, the people who are out of the loop now are people who are in income producing households!!
their income just isn't enough to be able to afford insane insurance payments topped off with insane medical bills!!!
there is already rationing going on in the system!!
society just thought it too cruel to let nature take it's natural course and let the burden fall on the poor, the elderly (who really shouldn't be
included since they spent their lifetimes working and paying into a social security fund!! ) and children!! so well, they let it fall onto the backs
of the lower wage workers instead!!
that way there isn't any way one can define one group that is being screwed, it kind of hits in a mish mash way.....but it does hit.....it hit
taxpayers, who, well, are paying taxes, which are going to pay for the poor, pay for the childrens, pay for the disabled heathcare....
a service that if they have to gain, well it will cause endless phones calls from bill collectors, lawsuits, and possibly bankruptcy!!!
obamacare isn't the answer, I will give you t hat.....but that doesn't mean an answer should be found!!
the constitution does not give the gov't the power to decide who is worthy of life and who isn't like that!
