Every one is entitled to Health Care.
It should be a non profit industry with no shareholders expecting dividends. I have no problem paying doctors, nurses, etc. fair salaries, but why
should anyone profit from someone else's misery?
Because of the for profit crap, 80% of medicare costs are incurred in end of life care, last 60 days. I am sorry folks, we start dieing the day we
are born, but the costs of just keeping folks alive, with no quality of life is what is killing the system.
I cared for my grandfather, the last 6 months of his life. He spent some time in the hospital, some time in a nursing home for rehab, and we brought
him home, and as a family cared for him. We had some help from Hospice, they are wonderful, but the burden of his day to day care fell to the family.
I miss him, but we had him for 95 years.
I am going to throw in tort reform here too, it needs to happen. If a Dr. is found grossly negligent, he needs to pay, but the frivolous BS needs to
stop. If a Doc is grossly negligent three times, his license is pulled, and he is no longer allowed to practice medicine in this country.
No drug patents, hell the govt is paying for a lot of the research anyway, why are the drug companies allowed to make insane profits on something the
taxpayers paid for?
I don't work in healthcare, and in fact mine is supplied by VA, kudos to those folks, they have done well by me. That being said, I have a boatload
of ideas, but I am not educated, don't scream loud, and am a centerist and can't attract nut jobs to my side.
