@ njadd:

IMHO, there is a big difference between “health care” and health knowledge. Yes, we KNOW a lot more than we used to, and for those who HAVE health care, it’s much better than it was decades ago.

The problem is that there are too many people in the U.S. who DO NOT have any health care at all. For them, the health care system is not just broken, IT’S NON EXISTENT.

And that doesn’t even take into account those who are UNDERinsured.

The problem with the U.S. health care system is that until now health care has been treated as if it were a privilege, and not a basic human right. What really burns me about that attitude is that it flies in the face of basic Christian principles, upon which this country was founded, and that many who insist health care is a privilege claim to be Christians themselves.

When someone who claims to be Christian, but also claims that the only reason those who don’t have health care don’t have it because they are just too lazy to work hard enough to pay for it themselves, as far as I’m concerned the two claims are contradictory and reveal hypocrisy.

Nearly 46 MILLION Americans have no health insurance! 46 MILLION!!!!!!!!!

That’s not just shameful, it’s disgusting.

There are those who claim that just because they don’t have health insurance that doesn’t mean they don’t have access, because there are laws in effect that force hospitals to treat anyone who walks into an ER.

That is the LAMEST argument I have ever heard. When a patient doesn’t have the means to pay their bill, it doesn’t matter if they walk into an ER! They are NOT going to get the level of care someone with coverage will get. Period! The moment the hospital learns a patient has no insurance, or the means to pay the bill, they immediately begin the process of figuring out the MINIMUM treatment allowed by law, with the end goal of kicking the patient to the curb as soon as possible.

Access to emergency services does NOT mean access to a reasonable level of health care. Not even close.

You are absolutely correct njadd. The “powers that be” are corrupt, and driven by nothing BUT profit and greed. The problem is they don’t see it that way, because they have gotten so used to their privileged lives, they think it’s NORMAL! Too many people in this country don’t have a clue what is truly necessary for living anymore. Too many who are in reality VERY RICH in comparison to the vast majority in this world, think that they are not, and instead see their lot as “modest.”

This is historical fact. Those who have think those who do not are lazy, and undeserving. Those who do not have, NEED that which only those who have can afford. Those who have, when asked to share what they have with those who do not, complain that it will cost them. That conflict has been there as long as history has been written. Not much has changed.

Those who have, got what they have by using something they call “leverage.” Leverage is nothing but a code word for “other people’s money, and other people’s efforts.” I’ve read the books they read. I know the truth. I refuse to blind myself with the twisted logic they use to allow themselves the freedom to act as hypocrites.

I almost bought into their thinking myself. The lifting of the veil began with one simple statement made by a very famous success mentor, whom I will not name.

“The best customers are ADDICTS!”

If that doesn’t reveal something truly wrong with the mentality behind the insanely rich, I don’t know what ever will.

With that one tremendously crass statement, my eyes began to open, and I began to see more and more of the twisted logic the richest people in the world use to fool themselves into thinking what they do is okay, just and right.

It’s easy to fall for if you aren’t careful. I nearly did.
