Health Care

Health Care

It’s time to get serious about national health care. A couple thoughts:

  1. Just say NO to co-ops. They can never compete with national insurance agencies. Without the competition, there’s no need for the insurance agencies to improve or to stop their killing for profit.
  2. Allow everyone to buy into Medicare if they want to. Yes, it’s already run by the government and run with a 3% overhead. United Health just paid their CEO, Dollar Bill McGuire, $1.7 Billion. Can’t beat that for waste. How many people had to die to pay for that?
  3. Call your representatives and the White House today and call often.

  1. I’ve heard that most national insurance companies have a 25-50% overhead in order to pay their execs millions and millions of dollars. Medicare is 3%.

  2. Medicare or even ObamaCare won’t turn people away to die just for profit. Have you seen SickForProfit.com?

  3. A memo leaked from the Coal industry indicates that they intend to piggy back on the astro turf corporations behind the tea baggers and the health care opponents.

  4. Check out the lies coming from the Republicans. It’s amazing that they are so disingenuous, deceptive, dishonest. The lies are all disproved at media matters: http://mediamatters.org/research/200908200002
