Alright, Mr. President... Just Do It!
The Real solution would be to have a national health service that covers most people. Have private insurance cover the gaps that will inevitably occur. Ithink Medicaid is actually not such a bad model, if and yeah I know it is a big fat hairy if, they can get physician re-imbursemtns up some. That should be done through the government. Doctors could do what they do in most of the Balkans countries, they could form a union and look out for themselves.
All I know is as things stand now, it is really awful for small businesses and it has been steadily getting harder even for major corporations to take the costs of the present system.
Some degree of socialized medicine could actually save capitalism.
Bosnia Herzegovina had a really stupid war in their own country and they have a decent National Health care system, we have two fairly stupid wars that cost us singly far more than the cost of a decent Health Care system. Do th e math, subtract a war, maybe even subtract two wars and we could afford a really great system.
I am worried that President Obama is turning into another Jimmy Carter, he's being way too nice about some of the nonsense thrown at him.
He needs to get just a little Balkans on their @$$*$!
People here can be really contradictory. We are a republic, a representative democracy, but very few people actually VOTE. It is so much more FUJN to form a mob and start yelling...
