I have some concern for the health care reform. My biggest concern is the funding of medical services. Once health care is federally regulated, who pays the funds for research, the employees, the equipment? What happens if there is a malpractice? You can't sue the government, so how will families be compensated? Will illegals still receive free treatment (which of course I am highly against)?
I agree that the insane fluctuations of insurance premiums, misguiding policies and coverages is asinine . People born with diabetes have a hard time finding an insurance company to cover them. So, in a sense, the reform could be beneficial to them and to other disorders as well.
I will not touch the subject of war because it is indeed a touchy subject. Especially to me, personally being a vet of three tours in Iraq.
I will though, encourage you to visit a local Veteran's Administration clinic or hospital. This is a perfect view of universal health care. This system has been implemented since 1930 and only reached cabinet status since 1985. That is quite the gap and the amount of patients through the wars is less than the population of the United States. The amount of manpower to detect fraudulent claims, provide a medical board, review patients history, disability raters, medical personnel, compensation boards, congressional reversals, and so on is quite staggering.
If we could find a solution that could avoid the disaster in the VA for a reform, then there is a huge possibility of implementing bill.
