Where to turn?
Last week I had a physician on my radio show who was convinced we do not need to raise any new money (taxes) for healthcare reform and that all the money should come from the waste in the current healthcare system. I thought it was the most selfish and naive conversation I have had on the radio in a long time. Not because there is no waste in the current system – believe me, there is plenty. I thought his argument was flawed because to get all the waste out would take years and even then there would not be enough to make sure everyone in this country has access to affordable healthcare insurance. We have a lot of work do to reform the current system but let’s get the process moving and make sure all people in this country can get the protection and peace of mind they deserve. We can correct the mistakes in whatever legislation passes in the next few months.
