Change Hell Care to Health Care: It’s Time

From Lee Brandenburg at The Captive American:

The U.S. healthcare system is a disgrace. We spend up to 14 percent of our Gross Domestic Product on medical care, yet 45 million Americans have no health insurance. That’s almost 7 percent of the national population. Maybe 7 percent doesn’t sound like much to you, but think of it this way: Every year 18,000 people in the U.S. die because they do not have medical coverage. And yet, year in and year out, our leaders in Washington do nothing about it. Why not? Because big business is making a killing off the sick and the dying.

Here what James Dunham at OpEdNews.com had to say:

Republicans, backed by the insurance and drug industries will fight tooth and nail to kill any type of Government Medicare type universal plan available to all who want it. The insurance and drug industries will pump billions into TV commercials, radio ads, and print advertisements to scare the hell out of ill informed and ordinary Americans. 

Then there’s Gladys, one of our readers who chimed in:

I’m a semi-regular here and I have never attached a link to my name before, so humor me and read what George E. Curry had to say about hell care reform today.

And no, I didn’t make an error in spelling.

When elders have to choose between paying the rent or paying for medicine, that’s hell care.

When lower middle income moms and dads have to choose between meat and potatoes and antibiotics, that’s hell care.

When the emergency room is the only place you can get treatment for the aching back a low wage earner got unloading a delivery truck at KMart or WalMart or whatever minimum wage job they’ve managed to find after losing their decent job in this bad economy, that’s hell care. 

When college students can’t afford to take another penny in school loans to pay for the health insurance that schools require for attendance so they quit school instead, that’s hell care.

Listen up, it’s time to change hell care to health care for everyone in America.

Couldn’t have said it better myself, Gladys.   You’re absolutely right.

  1. My favorite sentence, “You’re absolutely right.”  LOL

  2. I noticed that rates are becoming less in regards to Heath Insurance policies. Has anybody else noticed a drop? Or is it just my Insurance company?
