Yeah...jus trying to be funny...
If it's me that's not listening then why am I interested in making changes
that don't include nationalizing? Nationanalized hc in the states is
impossible and probably not necessary.
People often misunderstand my political views.
What I was talking abut:
Single payer (copayments are something else too- I'm for those)
Standardized software for billing offices and insurance co.
Not for profit Health insurance(limited)
But BCBS has -competitors- in the private arena,while ObamaCare is intended
to be "single payer",eliminating any competition.
it's communist because you are anti-profit.
You wish to FORCE healthcare to be non-profit,by taking it out of private
hands and putting it in the hands of wasteful inefficient government.
Grandma and grandpa have been offered less than "high-tech" life support
for a long, long time. They are very likely to have diapers slapped on
them if they can't get to a bathroom unaided. Medicare reimbursed
nursing homes based on a certain number of hours per patient...that may
have changed. Medicare used to allow 3.something hours of nursing care
per day per patient. There was no time-sheet, and if Joe and Bill were
ill enough to require 6 hours of nursing care, then someone was shorted.
I had nursing home patients who required almost continual care.
I once asked a nurse-aid not to use so many underpads for an incontinent
patient....her reply was "Medicare pays for them". That was probably 30
years ago and reimbursement was $1 each.
Rental of durable medical equipment and oxygen machines is a racket that
is horribly abused.
I read a story in the newspaper not long ago about a 78-year-old waiting
for a heart transplant. Know an indiviual, long-term heavy drinker, who
is waiting for a liver transplant, and is probably drawing disability
and Medicare coverage.
"High tech" has medical practice at the brink of insanity and
insolvency. I would wager a bet that rehab rates would increase and
costs drop dramatically if nursing homes hired more nurses and nurse
aides. I would vote for mandatory national service for all citizens if
it included serving in such work.
Basic medical and surgical covereage under a national plan would benefit
all of us. If folks want blue pills, transplants, fertility treatment,
let them buy luxurious plans as they can afford them. There should also
be psychiatric coverage at least for children that includes treatment
for substance abuse.
If I was Grandma I wouldn't want to be plugged in in the first place.
Why lay here running up the national debt in life support when you
could move on to a better place? I have no resuscitation orders filed
with both local hospitals.
they're too busy outside... blocking,pushing,and beating up opponents.
Union,ACORN,and New Black Panthers.
And we already know Obama's Justice Dept. will not prosecute them.
all the "progressives" are the "useful idiots" of modern times.
They've been SUCKERED.
