I am a retired financial planner. I see the Obama healthcare plan as one of the greatest things that can happen to this nation. I have traveled extensively in Europe and Canada and I have seen nothing but pleased people with their national helath plans contrary to what many people wouid have us believe. I know so many people who do not have health insurance. Private health care IS rationed because so many people in this country have had their medical insurance canceled due to claims of so- called pre-existing illnesses which did not pre-exist. These people have lost all they have had for treatments. Nothing could be worse than the situation we presently have. I can't believe that people believe all the untruths about Obama"s health plan when so many people are suffering. I can't believe the rudeness when politicians try to answer questions at town hall meetings. I hope it backfires on them when sensible people get the facts. I know plenty of ways to get the money needed to fund this healthcare and medicare.and I have presented it to the proper people.
First of all, I am waiting to see what the final bill will be. Second, there is no government program that could not be better. No plan is perfect.
SS is not perfect, but would we seniors be willing to give it up? VA care is not perfect, but what would be the alternative? Medicare is certainly not perfect, but how would many seniors on low fixed incomes pay for medical care if it were not in place? Many government programs need revision and changes.
Let's get the facts before we start going off raving and ranting. Then we will have a basis for challenging those parts of the bill that we think are bad and supporting those parts that are good. When the final bill is proposed and we know what it contains or leaves out, let your Congressional people know what you think - bad or good. Let's stop attacking others who have their own ideas and priorities - no good comes from that.
