35. Short Term It's Fine

But it is the Heritage Foundation's plan. We need to scrub profit out of health care, it does not belong there. Once again we're trying to stay well/alive, they're bottom line drives them. We're at loggerheads with our prime goals.

A health care company should be some office workers making solid middle class pay and bosses making not more than 2-3 times as much. Like it was until the 80's.

Right now it's just us among civilized countries and it's wrong that the 1st thing we now hear at a doctors office is how will you pay, can I see your insurance card, etc. I heard a lady relate that she, on a trip to Italy, broke her arm. She was treated, given a sling and some pain meds. Nobody asked for money, a card, nothing.

BTW other countries have plans that also cover vision and dental. I have dental insurance but it only plays half for anything big - which means every other year I seem to get dinged for $700-1200. It sucks but I can do it. What about others who are choosing between heat, food, and medicine?
