yeah, i kinda worked for them too and reached the same conclusion. if reform doesnt happen soon, itll happen in the near future. the system is in shambles and i feel majority of the people that are against reform, just dont realize how bad the situation is. with the baby boomers starting to retire, and unfortunately going to decline in health, they will see first hand at how health care operates. as a moderate, im against a socialized medicine, but we really need to sit down and rethink how we approach health care in this country. in my personal opinion, anything that deals with saving lives and providing care that every US citizen needs, should not be a for profit organization.

Re: who said our government doesn’t care about us senior citizens :lmao:

I believe there needs to be reform too, but I do not believe the government should be in control of it. The government doesn't need to be in control of most of the stuff it already is in control of.

Re: who said our government doesn’t care about us senior citizens :lmao:

Well I agree with both of you. Watching the movie Sicko gave me a little hindsight as to how an actual healthcare provider works. Medicare was a great idea in general, but it's getting rediculous now. It will pay for a penis pump but not hearing aids? Come the **** on.

Re: who said our government doesn’t care about us senior citizens :lmao:

agreed. i just wish the current situation wasnt so political. they both need to just suck it up, sit down in a locked room, and come up with something that benefits the american people.

im also iffy about government involved insurance. but they really should not be for profit companies. they should be at the very least non-profits - and it should be unethical to deny coverage to any insured individual if the doctor approves.

for example, my fiancee, who was in nursing school, worked clinicals on a pediatric cancer floor, could not get surgery under her student insurance even though they found a cyst on her ovary. even though the doctor said it was urgent, she had to wait to graduate to get it taken care of. seriously, wtf kind of unethical BS is that?

Exactly. Another fact: Humana has to have at least a 45% denial rate for them to make a profit, so, that's 45% of the claims automatically denied because of money. Large insurance groups can lick the sweat from my scrotum.

Re: who said our government doesn’t care about us senior citizens :lmao:

I also agree with all you guys. Something definitely needs to be done to remedy the situation, because in all honesty, this country's healthcare is not as great as it is made out to be. Too many people are settling for mediocre coverage because they are afraid of their current coverage changing.

I wouldn't mind government run healthcare...if I could trust the government
Politician's are outstanding when it comes to talking a big game and promising this, but doing that (I'm talking about both dems and repubs) because lets be honest, the whole point of being in the game is to make money, even if it means compromising what you stand for and claim to represent.

However, I would have no problem receiving the same healthcare as the politicians. But if that can't happen, then the politicians should not receive golden healthcare. The American citizens have the right to decent healthcare. Working, motivated citizens do...there are too many welfare programs around that are being abused and milked by people, especially up here in Wisconsin. There definitely needs to be some reform in that area imo.

Yeah, seems like if you have 50 kids by 50 different fathers you've got it made. It's abused the same way here in KY.

Re: who said our government doesn’t care about us senior citizens :lmao:

Well put! I agree it's terrible we need re-form badly. I think socialized medicine is not the correct way to re-form. Socialized medicine, would be a mess and eventually end up going bankrupt. There needs to be compromise since no one will ever agree on everything, that is human nature. I think something will happen in November, when several members (Democrats and Republicans) don't get re-elected.

Do some research. Google it. It does help having first hand experience, though.
