Like many seasoned Americans, I’m over 50 and I’m embarrassed at this juncture of my life to admit that I haven’t had a personal physician in years—not since‘Government fixed our healthcare’ back in 2010.
So you can debate the practicalities, procedures and legislation— that’s all well and good, but many of us need to see a @#$% doctor now. We don’t need another bullshit policy. A policy is not Healthcare.
There is no way in hell it would potentially take ‘years’ to fix our Health Insurance Mess, if Congress weren’t already exempt and if THEY needed a doctor. But lucky for them—they were exempt from Day One.
So they have no urgency. To these guys in Congress… it’s just another DC parlor game.
In hindsight… you heard of no problems when they were exempting Congress and ‘hand-picked’ Unions. Did you?
As one of many Americans in need action, I’d like to propose what I believe is a reasonable solution starting point:
IMMEDIATELY begin Phased in Exemptions (like Congress)to the American citizens so as not to overwhelm the system—starting with the oldest and those most ill and let the free market begin working it’s magic.
While initially, much of ObamaCare would remain in place (temporarily)—new free market initiatives can be gradually, but with due diligence…. implemented across state lines, without trying to fix 1/6th of our economy all at once.
But as it stands now….those immune from the problem (congress) are the very ones in charge of fixing it.
In addition to that, while I understand there are MANY important issues, and you cannot fix everything at once— I’m EXTREMELY disappointed to see (as of this posting) that our healthcare is not considered a TOP ISSUE at WhiteHouse.gov. See Screenshot above.
Not really a confidence builder…
And in the meantime, while they wait for the perfect solution for all— I’m afraid we’re going to lose some friends.
