Carol just watched "sickho" I had to spell it like that to get by"We need national health coverage to ensure economic recovery and economic survival. Our fastest-growing job area is in health services, and these are permanent jobs. Many countries we compete with, like Japan and Germany, have national health, and this cost is not attached to every production man-hour as we do it here. If France and Cuba can have it, we can, too. Hospitals are bridges to and from American life, and they need upgrading. We must prove we value the life of the individual American and reward ourselves for our service to others.
First off do you REALLY want the same people running national health care as currently mismanage VA healthcare? They can't even get it right for less than 2% of the population and you want them to have the whole ball of wax?
Second, it is not going to be free, taxes will go through the roof to pay for a worse system than we currently have (ask anyone in Canada what they pay and what the get).
Third, just because "they" do it does not mean WE have to do it. Is the population of France or Cuba anywhere near ours? Oh by the way, yes they have healthcare in Cuba but you best have some real dollars if you want any medicines or real care.
