After several arguments with people who offer me all kinds of crap about the new health-care debate, someplace in the conversation they give away they’re associated with the health-care industry.
BEFORE you start discussing health care with anybody — if you don’t want your head to explode — find out if they receive any sort of money from the health care industry. Doctors, clinicians, nurses, medical writers, even janitors in hospitals. Every single one of them will argue for private health care, and offer arguments against those very draw-backs already part of privatized care. They’ll even tell you the government will force you to go to certain doctors or pharmacies — and what private insurance company doesn’t already do that? They’ll tell you the government will decide on your treatment or deny you coverage — how would that be any different, even if it were true?
Their rice bowls are being threatened. They can only see a future of shrinking paychecks — and it will be over your dead body.
Yes, I want to see that 1000-page bill posted on the net. How much you want to bet most of the riders are based on what the health-care industry lobbyists want? Let’s see this thing — it could backfire on the people demanding to see it.
Nearest just said there should be a debt-forgiveness program for all health-care workers, doctors to nurses to pharmacists, with huge college bills on their backs. Or they’ll stay in a constant state of panic over who is going to pay off those student loans. Let’s face it, as the boomers fall out of the system and the money starts drying up, those loans are going to get hellish. Who’s going to pay those? Not the CEOs of the health-care industry. All those doctors who were in bed with them they’ll just smother with a pillow (that’s a metaphor, for those people who don’t understand the word “rhetoric” — like in the recent Supreme Court hearings).
