Last night was the first time I saw a "scare tactic" commercial regarding health care reform. It made me laugh because the things it said would happen were so incredibly ridiculous!! So I am passing along a link to the white house's video page regarding the reform that Obama wants to see
I am/was one of the nearly fifty million people in the US that cannot afford health care. I keep hoping something will be done so that I can have a family doctor one day, a family dentist. I keep hoping that one day, I won't have to self-medicate and home-remedy my way back to health. I say "am/was" up there because for the last year, Klaw and I have had *some* insurance. It covers accidents and injuries, not routine medical procedures nor simple things like annual physicals. Dental would be five hundred dollars more a semester.
I am not going to dwell on it because it angers me too much. Special interest groups don't care about my hopes, they only care about their profit margins and health care reform threatens that, not the lives of seniors or the ability of small businesses to provide insurance for their employees. The best one I've heard is (how can people buy into this?!) that suddenly some Big Brother entity will decide who lives and who dies. At the moment, something already does that. The poor die while the rich live because the poor can't afford preventive care while the rich can.
