Obama health care has finally come into a reality and with it some frustrating technical issues that will be fixed as we try to accommodate millions of people who couldn’t afford health care, to being able to afford it now. Is it a good thing? Yes and no, because of the millions more pouring into the system might make it more inconvenient for those who like convenience. We live in a time when if we don’t all have health care, we all will continue to pay for those who do not have it anyway, so what is the big fuss? If everyone has health care that is affordable, yes, there will be longer lines and the prices should be going down. I don’t believe health care should be a business that exceeds earnings more each year without improving our overall health care system and re-educating our doctors. It seems that our doctors aren’t getting any smarter nor do they really listen to our concerns. The price they pay for medical malpractice is beyond insane and there isn’t a doctors program for preventing such casualties? Something is definitely wrong with both our health care systems and our government who deems it okay to shut down as Obama care comes into light! Am I the only one thinking this can’t be a coincidence, can it? Yet the Congress who doesn’t want to do their jobs, get paid an exceeding amount of money in spite of getting a deadline finished, walks out and lets our government be forced down! WHAT? They should be penalized for everyday they can’t come to an agreement, they should not be paid and should be fired for insubordination! And their extraordinary health care coverage should be taken away from them and their families. People who absolutely need to see a doctor more often than I do may have multiple things wrong with them but I believe we can set into place a system that can help them before it balloons. I think a preventative approaches should be the norm but does everyone agree? No. Why, because of all the unknown factors. The truth is Americans are not that healthy, we sit too much, drive our big fancy cars instead of walking, eat too much rich food, exercise less each year, smoke and drink, are addictive to something or other. Too many people eat fast and processed foods and some do it because they can’t afford to live or buy healthier foods! They can be taught how to become healthier by educating them not by judging them or punishing them. Our healthcare doesn’t promote health; it cuts out symptoms or medicates us. We do things in spite of warning signs and that isn’t a good thing! Most Europeans and Asians are much healthier than Americans but that varies too. Corporations left in America, like all the fast food chains must be accountable and lift the standards of their menus! We can change and we must or we will continue to pay, pay, pay in many ways to our wellbeing, our planet; water, vegetation and animals. When will we come together and learn from our mistakes?
