Where will they get the money?


I now know where the health care cash will come from!
A friend who is disabled got this letter in the mail saying the state can no longer afford to pay for these services to the people who need them the most! POOR FOLKS! DISABLED FOLKS!
Chiropractors... So what if you're in pain?... YOU'RE POOR!
Podiatrists... Who needs to WALK if you're poor?
Vision Services... Who needs to SEE if you're poor?
Hearing Aid Dealers... Who needs to HEAR if you're poor?
Dentists/Dentures... Who needs to EAT if you're poor?
Just hurry up and die and leave everything for the rich folks already!

It's only going to get worse if they pass the national health care bill.

Oh, it will be much better. Instead of of a few seeing a doctor and getting treatment we all can get pills.

Yep.

Hey grandma! Good news! You don't have to have open heart surgery to bypass those 97%-clogged arteries. You can just take a pill!

If you really want to see something that will piss you off check out bill 1317. Back to the original post the VA is a joke. If we let them pass the health care reform bill, our health care benefits will join the ranks of the VA, social security, medicare, and medicaid. Write your congressman and let know folks.

Danger, what are you saying? your ending comments seem to be against a national health care system, but everything I quoted you saying are EXACTLY why we need healthcare reform!

There are millions of people and kids that have NO access to healthcare because they are poor. Don't believe me, take a walk in any major city and look at the people sleeping on the sidewalk, literally rotting away right on our streets. Go to your local discount store, and just look around, take notice of peoples teeth. It is painfully obvious that a large percentage of our population have no insurance and can't afford the ridiculously high price of healthcare.

Why is it that we are so quick to put out time and money to make athletes & actors richer than anyone needs to be, but so apposed to forking over a couple extra bucks a year so a kid whose only sin was being born to poor parents can get his teeth cleaned twice a year. We have gotten dangerously off track in this country....

"Just hurry up and die and leave everything for the rich folks already!" was sarcasm....

Our government runs Social Security- It's a MESS! Our government runs the Postal Service- It's a MESS! Show me anything the government runs well. And we want to let them run another 15% of our economy?

I heard on the radio yesterday that social security benefits are going to be lowered. As far as I know, most elderly and disabled people on social security are scraping to get by. Why are their benefits being lowered?

Is there a government program that IS successful? One they HAVEN'T screwed up?

I have no proof that the government is capable of running anything successfully. That is why I don't trust them with medical care.

Find a copy of the proposed national health care bill!

Read the following pages of it: 22, 29, 30, 50, 59, 124, 127, 149, 203, 272, 280, 317, 429.....

There will be no improvement in health care if this bill is passed. They need to scrap it and explore some of the possible plans others have suggested that would bring beneficial health care reform to the U.S.

We need to help our citizens who are poor, disabled or elderly. We especially need to do more for our vets. IMO they should have better medical benefits than our millionaire government officials. Who, by the way, are keeping the great insurance they have. If the proposed bill is so great, why aren't they going to be using it?
