health care

I don't know about you but personally I have come to the point where I can not listen to the health care debate any more.
We live in one of the richest countries in the world,have more political leaders then we need and still can not come up with a plan that most Americans can agree on.
Our president has a need to pass things through the house and senate has quickly as possible.A take it or leave it "now" attitude
We all know we need reform.A person with no insurance can not possibly begin to pay for a medical debt.Every thing is to expensive and no matter if the government pays for it or we pay for it in the end no one can afford it.
Doctors spend many years going to school,not only to help the sick but make money.They send tens of thousands of dollars in medical school and educating themselves before and after becoming a doctor.
Hospitals have new machines to make our health better and once a machine is in use someone needs to know how to run it properly and safely then a doctor needs to read these results.We have the best medical teams that are efficient and ready to work on your problem at a moments notice.
Unfortunately all this cost money and most people do not have that kind of money.I am against government health care,since I deal with medicare which is one of the most inefficient payment system you can imagine,They tell the doctors what to prescribe and how much they will pay for everyone services from nurses to doctors to pharmacy.
So what do we do? Any time any one gets anything free it is abused.But people should also feel secure in the fact that when a medical emergency comes along it should not cost you years of servitude in payments,especially when money in your house hold is a premium.
It's going to be a tough row to hoe.We can't sell our health care out but then again we can not allow people to fall by the way side.Maybe we need more free clinics, charge people who use it a minimal fee and not make people wait for 6 hours to see a doctor.They may need to be run more like a regular doctors office with incentives for doctors to want to work in these places.
I don't know about you but when I'm sick I want to know my doctor knows how to make me feel better and at that point he deserves his paycheck.No matter what it cost.
