Two men were standing outside the Unemployment Office. One said to the other, "You hear about Global Warming? The Government is going to save us from by increasing energy costs!"
"Really? That must be why I was fired for turning up the heat." The other replied as he jumped up and down to warm himself.
“Obamacare does say that it will lower the cost of insurance. I do not understand how that is possible, proponents keep saying it will be deficit neutral, but they never actually explain how.” If you get people into the doctor sooner, they can get their medical problems solved early when the solutions are cheaper. Expensive co-pays and deductibles can keep people from seeking medical attention until the situation is dire (like yours).
Sure, that's why we need reform. Obamacare won't help that problem.
I'd like to tell you about my recent experience with the health care system.
I am a 24-year old, full time college student who has no job. Because of this I have no health insurance. This really isn't a problem for me, since I usually only get a cold maybe twice a year. But recently I started having bad stomach pain. Long story short, it took about a month to figure out that I had gallstones. Thus, I would say I have a good perspective as one of the uninsured millions, on how well our health care system works here in the USA.
There is one thing seriously missing in all the Health Care Debate that is going on in the USA right now. And that is a serious debate between two major plans. Currently there is only one major plan being talked about, the so called "Obamacare." The Republicans have come up with a few plans of their own, but they have been ignored, and some are too similar to Obamacare to appeal to those of us who oppose Obamacare. So, I have spent some time thinking about it, and have come up with some ideas that Congress could start a new plan with.
So, I just emailed my congressmen and the President about HR3200. It was easy to do from congress.org. They have a nice form that makes it easy. You just enter your zip code to find your congressmen, and then your address, and then fill out an email form. Here's what I wrote:
I found this site through Facebook. http://respectourpresident.org/
I have to say I agree with most of what he says. I have never liked the way people disrespect our leaders. Even if I don't like said leaders. If you have facebook, I urge you to find an join the group there.
