    Doc, why does everything indicate that doctors are nothing more than fultime drug company employees?

    Do you think that the profit driven drug company lobbyists are the best qualified to dictate what our health care system will be? How many countriesw are you aware of that provide a universal heathcare system that works? I know most have problems but citizens losing everything they own aftewr 40 years of working for it are not an everyday occurance. When I heard about the death panels that were coming I went to BBC and did some research into their healthcare system. Didn't indicate a reliance on death panels to provide decent healthcare. Same with Canada, not perfect but it works.

    A doctor gives a personal perspective on the state of health care in America in relation to the insurance mess. No one knows the best way to proceed from here, but it's very disheartening for good, caring doctors to keep hearing about how much they are hated and blamed for all the problems that exist. read more

    Not every Dr of course; There are many drs that have intelligence and values and knowledge to help people when they need them using methods that are available for to them.

    The DRUGS IS A HUGE PROBLEM of course and there is no easy way out. Money, lack of intelligence and values, greed and other things are all tied together and it continues to be a serious problem. The more drugs are created and the more chances that they will be used without the necessary need. It's another side of the progress and educating one's self is quite useful.

    Health care is big business, just as oil is big business. Those dedicated to the years of astronomical profits will do all they can to preserve thier way of life. Preservation always begins by making the rest of us afraid. The horror stories that persist in reference to medical care in other countries are shadows of the truth meant to confront us with a boggie man that will frighten us into submission and accept the absurdity of a current system, which will eventually, put us all in the poor house.
