USA Healthcare, Obamacare – Thank you to…

Posted by TopOfTheThread on July 17, 2011

USA Health Care Horrible 126.99 for 4 days of ear drops  Obamacare

Thank you to all the wonderful people out there who have ruined our healthcare system.  Thank you to the insurance companies. Thank you to the drug companies. Thank you to the doctors. Thank you to the ambulance-chasing attorneys.

And thank you to our government for shoving through a 1300-page bill, that nobody could have possibly read, and contributing to the downfall of our ever-worsening healthcare system (Obamacare.)

This 4 day supply of ear drops costs $126.99.  Why?

The Health Care Reform “Two-Step”

Posted by TopOfTheThread on October 7, 2009

We all know Health Care Reform is a major issue in the United States. The Obama Administration is making it a top priority.

Why can’t we simply try this?

  1. Tort reform – If we get rid of the frivolous lawsuits, everyone wins. Insurers.  Doctors. Consumers.
  2. Let health insurers cross states – this will immediately create competition without the government expanding and, in reality, creating unfair competition.  How will a private insurer compete with the government?  … And  the competition will drive rates down!

Easy. Let’s try it.  And it can probably be easily implemented within a reasonable amount of time.

Obama’s Health Care Reform – What is it?

Posted by TopOfTheThread on August 14, 2009

People are screaming at each other over health care reform.  How can anyone be passionate one way or another without knowing the proposed plan(s)?

Obama, Democrats and Republicans are each campaigning for/against it.

WHAT IS IT?!  Where can we find out SPECIFICALLY what is being proposed?

None of these road-shows should be taking place until the multiple bills and proposals are combined into one bill…. then we should all work from there.

It seems that it is still all theory and rumours… Please, someone point us to one place where we can see the specific proposals! Substance!  Not theory!

Also, please do not set these random deadlines on a subject that will affect the future of thise country.

Please do not pull the same "crap" of offering a 1000+ page bill, like was done with the stimulus, and expect it to be voted on the next day. 

It is a subject that we all agree needs fixing.  Let’s do it right. We may not have a second chance.
