Read yes. Will those on the right let themselves understand it? No. There are none so blind as those who refuse to see, and when you are taking thirty pieces of silver from the (un)insurance companies, then you can not see the truth.
I am always amazed how many Americans seem not to be aware about the real healthcare issues relying instead on FOX and other sources to spread lies about the healthcare system of the USA and those abroad. I mean, if healthcare in nations with universal coverage is so bad, why do they keep it?
Obama wants to make insurance more available to all and change the system so that it gives the American people value for money . He also wants change so that the insurance companies find it harder to get out of paying for treatment. The system he is proposing looks similar to that which works in Taiwan where private companies are involved in providing healthcare .
Obama campaigned on reforming the healthcare system. He said he wanted to make insurance more available and he was elected by the American people to do this .
FACT - the US has higher death rates for kids both for kids aged under one and those under five than western European countries with universal health coverage .
FACT – American insurance companies push up prices and work to stop paying out claims on those they cover .
FACT - the USA spends more on healthcare PER PERSON than any other nation on the planet .
That means that a dead American four year old would have had a better chance of life if they were born in any western nation with universal health coverage.
If you do not like the policies that Obama was elected to bring in, he can always be voted out of office in 2012. But if you disagree with the facts, please let me know. I am always willing to learn, but please provide proof. None of those who disagree with me have been able to do that so far.
