Whatever floats your boat...

That's right, the USA is number 37 in the world in healthcare. Pretty pathetic.

That's pretty catchy. I'll believe it though when I see those stinking rich American politicians go to Canada or Mexico for their health care.

By the way, don't forget a H1N1 flu vaccine even if your were diagnosed with it earlier this year. After all numbers of flu cases were presumptive diagnosis' for H1N1 even though the same numbers were used to whip the population into a panic as if we were in a pandemic. Thank WHO, CDC and politicians pulling the strings of the media all of that. AstraZeneca thanks you for your support. Oh and the sky is falling and pay no attention to the greedy dude behind the curtain.

Why would the stinking rich American politicians need to go anywhere for heath care? They're already getting the best money can buy. The point here is not the quality of the health care, it's the ability to pay for it that puts most of us in the crapper. My Mom had to pay about $240 today for two prescriptions. She's in the 'donut hole', part of the legacy of the last administration.

You are so right. And why would they care to reform a thing since they can do what they want except to make their buddies rich, or divert your attention from what is really happening?

There are almost NO good guys in politics... until you see them start with fixing what is broken in the government. I'm all for this broken healthcare system being fixed, if government fix themselves first. That is what is missing from all those wonderful speeches being made. Actually quite the opposite is said.... "look how wonderful Medicare turned out to be after being villainized as socialist practice." How about saying, we need to look at ourselves and Medicare in the process.... Nope you never hear that. Fix the system you propose to use as a solution. Otherwise it shifts the problems people like your mom is facing to somewhere else that ultimately ends up with people like your mom not getting the service she needs for reasons other than being able to afford it, or possibly still for that reason.

AstraZeneca still thanks everyone for the support. Do we have another 6 billion to toss their direction? Sure, just get the media to make it a crisis and the money flow and the power is a given.

All I know is, a lot of people are cutting their pills in half because they can't afford the full dosage. A dsability insurance company screwed me out of the benefits I was promised until age 65. I fought them for 2 years, I eiicited the help of a well known Senator and even helped get a nationwide investigation going by the Federal Department of Labor into how they screwed thousands of people with cancer, heart disease, Parkinsons, out of their benefits. It didn't help me because I coudn't afford the lawyers fees, but it did help some others get their benefits. I was threatened by the insurance company to add more stress to my life. That was common practice. But I did what I could.

The same insurance company cancelled the disability benefits of an eye surgeon who developed Parkinsonian tremors in his hands. Think about that. He sued and was awarded millions. But the award is still a pittance to these companies, so they keep on scamming.
