a few thoughts--I am confused

I cannot believe how long it has been! I have been busy doing other things which means there has not been much writing going on at my house.

Healthcare reform information has me puzzled. The more I listen to the rhetoric, the more confused I become. The tax payers will bear the burden of this no matter what. I think it boils down to how much it will cost, and who will be controlling it. Another czar, perhaps. And how will the decisions be made on who gets what care?

I have long thought that frivolous lawsuits against doctors have raised their malpractice insurance to astronomical rates. Even those who are caring and careful practitioners are impacted whether or not they have suits against them. Perhaps a ‘cap’ on some of their costs could be helpful in keeping costs down.

Attorneys are the ones who make the money in lawsuits. Maybe another ‘cap’ could be imposed on their percentages. They might be less willing to persue minor things and only take the provable and most devastating cases.

Insurance companies have not been helpful in keeping costs down. Have you checked into what a ‘cobra’ policy would cost you if you lost your job? It is horrendous! When I became disabled, my policy would have cost me $500.00 a month! I was unable to work and had no money coming in. Needless to say, I could not afford it. Fortunately my general health was and is good.

There must be a solution somewhere, and I hope our elected officials are able to come up with something that is fair to all. Have you written your congressman with your thoughts and suggestions? That is a good idea if you have any suggestions that might be helpful. They cannot do what you want if you don’t tell them. And they are, after all, our employees!
