Medical Care for all

I would like to see Well Care available for all U.S. citizens at a reasonable cost. This should either be required of all insurance companies in the U.S. or a government program should be available. Especially those with birth defects that disqualify them from private health plans.

What is prevention?

The word prevention from my point of view means using whatever means available to keep people healthy so they will not be a burden to our very expensive health care system. For that we turn to our health care specialists who know how to do prevention. But Wait; medical prevention means getting an early diagnosis to that diseases are discovered early on, in the hopes that they can become curtailed and less costly. Has ...more »

Media Manupulation of the Truth - Health Care

Health care changes have widespread public support, according to a CBS-New York Times poll released Saturday. Almost two-thirds say the government should guarantee health insurance for all Americans while half that many think it's not the government's responsibility.

 

Do you know anyone who supports this? I don't.

Public Policy

The government is charged with governing people. To this end, it must be made clear what public policy is being furthered when a law is moved on. For instance, we as a nation have long supported married couples through tax breaks (married filing jointly) and tax deductions for children. The public policy behind it is that we want our children to grow up in a household with married parents in that studies have shown ...more »

Remove Profit from Health Care

Health care is a right -- not a benefit. By virtue of being human and breathing (even with assistance) and/or having a pulse, every living person in our nation is ENTITLED to health care. Period. Insurance companies must be removed from the equation once and for all to allow costs, efficiency, and availability to meet the needs of all Americans.

health care

Have health insurance companies follow the same rules walmart does. If walmart refuses to sell you something you can sue them, if walmart gives someone 20% off the price and not you, you can sue them, so why do we let the health insurance companies do this? I say do not let the health insurance companies turn people away, instead sell them insurance, also if the health insurance plan is the same the price should be the ...more »

Funding New Ideas Pilots

There are hundreds of good ideas! In industry all good ideas are tested through the R&D process, i.e.: designed, prototyped, the bugs are ironed out, piloted, and so on. In a pilot test, a project is implemented on a small scale and tightly defined geographical location, and run for a time to study how it works, make changes during pilot, and eventually have a final implementation plan, or closed as unworkable.

Heatlth Care for Americorps workers

Americorp workers by and large are students working to help pay for school. Americorp by and large does really good work. Giving health care benefits to these students is least a start to covering some of the uninsured. Because young people generally have few serious problems, the cost would actually be pretty minimal.

American citizenship or being a citizen of Heaven

If you had a choice between being an American citizen or being a citizen of Heaven, which would you choose? For our citizenship is in heaven, from which also we eagerly wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ; Philippians 3:20 I am choosing being a citizen of Heaven since Obama and his team is taking America straight to world citizenship, and then straight to hell. Citizen of Heaven = Thumbs up Citizen of America ...more »
