Loc: Oklahoma where the wind comes...
This is such a toughie. Just as my husband's dr. said, "Your thoughts on this situation depends on whether you are one of the lucky ones who have insurance." and he is so right,.
We are so blessed to both have Medicare and then to have insurance that picks up the difference at a rate that does not put us in the poor house. Our drug coverage is not quite as good but we do have it except that hubby's is in the doughnut hole which gets very expensive. That doughnut hole needs to be filled in.
I am absolutely not smart enough to have the answers to the Health Care question and I don't think we have people in government who are either. It is not a quick, easy fix and I hope they don't jump in to something very quickly and make things worse.
For us personally, it will hurt because since we will have a choice of the government coverage, our company coverage will be dropped. I expect this time next year we won't be nearly as well off.
It is truly a problem. The only thing I know to do is to pray for those that are in power that they may have the wisdom to know what is best for our country. And one of those things to me is to once again become "one nation under God".
Hope you don't consider me out of line. It is just quite a discussion and at first I stayed out of it but decided to add my two cents worth which with inflation and the economy today is not worth much.
