My favorite poet takes on Healthcare

“ Health Care, Health Care!

Get it while it’s hot!

Forced upon the populous

But on the Whitehouse, NOT! “

A Letter to Obama, The Congress, and The Senate:

( Thoughts on The Health Care Reform Bill! )

You say you know “ what’s best “ for them

Or what is best for me-

We working stiffs will pay it all,

While for the rest, it’s free!

You want to change our health care,

To accommodate a few-

The majority wants it’s private care,

The arrogance of you!

You think you’re slick, that we won’t know,

What all is in this Bill-

WE took the time to peak inside,

UNLIKE those on Capitol Hill!

Decisions made by health care Czars?

Our fate not up to us!

You wonder why at town halls meets,

There’s come up such a fuss!

Long waiting lists for treatment,

And no choice in Senior care?

Limits for the handicapped?

You think that THIS is fair?

Accessing all my bank accounts?

And forced enrollment plans?

Illegal’s get more benefits,

With no payment from their hands!

You’ll audit any business

Who won’t accept this health care scheme!

“ More tax , for they can pay it! “

Communistic, it would seem!

So now you want this Great Reform,

And opposition gone!

Why aren‘t you changing out your care?

Why aren’t YOU signing on?

Our movement is not “ Astroturf “

Our objections you resent?

What happened to Hillary screeching:

“ It’s patriotic to dissent ! “

You’ve kicked us out of gatherings

You want to squelch our voice

You try to ram this down our throats

To take away our choice

But woe to those who pass this Bill

I hope that THIS you’ll note:

Our one choice that will still remain

You’ll see it when we VOTE!

( Do you want the government deciding when you’re a senior to stop your health care options and mandate you go on ” end of life ” care? Do you want limited access to health care for special needs people, ie: Autistic, Downs Syndrome, etc….? Do you want rationed health care? If not- copy this, email it, and KEEP IT GOING!!!- Katy )

Sick Kids – Thoughts on Health Care

Ok. Well we all have them sometime. Not gonna do a big post today as i have to head out to the pediatrician. I would like to take a quick moment to express my thoughts on health care since I am going to take advantage of my husbands employer provided health care plan.

I do not believe in government sponsored health care for the entire country. There are programs in place to provide all people, men, women, and children; with medical care. No one is to be denied care at a public hospital. I also venture to say that in an emergency even a private facility would provide care.

Is there a problem with the cost of health care? That really depends on how you look at it. We pay for our health care. We pay both monthly to have insurance and then again when we go to the doctor. That does not bother me. Do I think that money buys treatment? Sometimes it might. When you have more resources you can get to more specialists. Does everyone have to go to that one doctor? No. We don’t all have to see “House”. While we all might like the highest epitome of doctors, in reality everyone on any given day does not need to see that type of doctor. There are hospitals and organizations that do provide superior medical care to those who cannot afford it.

Next question though – aren’t they on Medicare or something similar? Most states have government subsidized health care at least for children so really there should be no excuse. I find that a lot of people in our country are lazy and are looking for a handout. They feel they have been treated unfairly in life and want the rest of us to pay for it. That whole topic will come up when I write about social policy, a topic I have very strong feelings about.

Frankly the cost of health care is going to rise either way. The options are not good for those of us who already pay responsibly for our care. We will either be paying increased costs as indigent care rises, which is how it is now. Balances out by covering some of the costs for those uninsured by rising costs of care. Or those of us who already pay for things will be paying more to provide health care for everyone else. So either way the working class will be paying for everyone else’s health care.

I do not like big government and I do not think that universal health care is a good thing. It will limit research and access to resources.

Well, off to the doctor that I pay for and will continue to pay for, and hope that I have the option to continue to see.
