Healthcare Confusion

Do you understand the Healthcare Plan that our President is proposing? I don't.

Every day I hear some new horror story about what's going to happen if it passes. No one will be able to get in to see specialists. The government will practically decide if you live or die. Assisted suicide will be discussed with the elderly...and on and on and on.

Now I believe very little of what I read in the paper or hear on the news and none of what I read on the Internet, but the fact that I don't understand what it's all about does bother me.

I wish I could find a reliable, unbiased source that really "gets it" and could condense it down to about three pages for me to read, so I could "get it" and then decide it I am in favor of it or not.

I know that our system is a terrible mess and it does need an overhaul, but I don't know if what is proposed is the answer.

Do you get it?

I don't get it. It seems to change everyday. When I was on Jury Duty I had to sit next to the guy who basically runs our hospital (not really sure what his title is) and he said for our area it would be a great thing for our hospital because most of the bills here go unpaid (tons of people here are on welfare)...I think it would be a terrible thing for smaller business owners to have to provide is hard enough to keep the doors open as is....I think there are good points and bad points. I really think it needs to be worked on a ton more...and I do not think it needs to be rushed to be passed...time needs to be taken on this. I also want to be able to pick my own doctor...and I HATE the "big brother" aspect of it. I want more control. Your health and your body are up to you.

health care for those who don't work or pay taxes paid for by those who do work and pay taxes. is that part of it? or is that what we have now.

It's interesting that I read this post right after receiving an email from a friend of mine about an answer that was received from one of our Oklahoma Congressman on Government Mandated Insurance.

Oops! Sorry. I was going to add that is was pretty much a ring-around-the rosie answer. Just let me know if you'd like to read the email.
