there you go again


one of the reasons that the democrats did better in the last election was the healthcare issue
it seems strange now that the republicans are making it an issue to get rid of obamacare which includes all the protections for us that protect us no matter our political beliefs
ie we all vote

its like someone with a gun that just shoots themselves in the foot

now i dont care if they get rid of obamacare to put in a new system
just make sure it protects us all like obamacare does
i dont see any idea any proposed plan of what the new healthcare system would be like

i suggest until something better truly better is developed then leave this one alone

as you start to support one side or the other on the healthcare debate
i suggest you set your politics aside and look at your own and your familys situation
how is this going to affect us

then the maybe number one issue among multiple others is getting rid of the preexisting conditions protections
if that is allowed to be a new law or rule then many of you will be gravely affected

now i feel like the best system is a medicare for all system so that we all are on the same plan
i also am a realist
i realize that will require changing our whole health insurance delivery system
it would have to withstand the powerful lobbying of multiple healthcare systems like medical groups hospital groups big pharma insurance companies etc
its not going to happen

my suggestion is adding a medicare policy as a choice for folks who maybe have to buy their own policies or maybe add it as an option at work or add it to the exchanges or let brokers add it to their insurance list

the medicare system works
it is the one system that has kept healthcare costs from getting even higher

i have been on it for almost 9 years and have no complaints

at my last ucla infusion visit the nurse that cared for me was from canada
i asked her about the canadian system
she said healthcare is not a worry there like it is here
we pay our taxes that pay for our healthcare
most canadians accept thats the way to pay for it and are pleased with the healthcare system

as to them trying to change the healthcare law again
like reagan i would say
there you go again

lets dont let them do it to us
