Healthcare, the cure is for the government to get their political hands out of the healthcare business, and stop telling medicare recipients what company to use for their healthcare. If the government would allow Capitalism to do its work, and allow free
competition in the health industry, our health care costs would drop like a rock, saving billions of dollars for Medicare recipients. I was a business agent for one of the largest unions in the world for 25 years. When I was approached by members of an insurance company that they wanted to have a Union in their work place, and was ready to sign the union cards for a ballot to be taken by the NLRB. As I proceeded to organize them, I was told by my Union Local President, to back off and stop what I was doing.
Any guess why???
Socialized medicine you say? Try to get a doctors appointment in England, or Canada. England has the NHS that runs their medical program, and on their webiste they have posted that they had euthanized 130,000 people . Read this If you are capable:

Shock: British NHS Euthanizes 130,000 Elderly Patients Annually

by Steven Ertelt | Washington, DC | LifeNews.com | Share

Shocking news from England today has top NHS officials indicating doctors acting in the UK government-run health program annually kill as many as 130,000 patients prematurely because of overcrowding at hospitals, medical clinics and nursing homes.

Professor Patrick Pullicino indicated doctors are turning to a so-called “death pathway” protocol that is essentially active euthanasia of patients, according to a London Daily Mail news report. Pullicino, a consultant neurologist for East Kent Hospitals and Professor of Clinical Neurosciences at the University of Kent, made his remarks in a speech before the Royal Society of Medicine in London.

He claimed there was often a lack of clear evidence for initiating the Liverpool Care Pathway, a method of looking after terminally ill patients that is used in hospitals across the country. It is designed to come into force when doctors believe it is impossible for a patient to recover and death is imminent.

It can include withdrawal of treatment – including the provision of water and nourishment by tube – and on average brings a patient to death in 33 hours. There are around 450,000 deaths in Britain each year of people who are in hospital or under NHS care. Around 29 per cent – 130,000 – are of patients who were on the LCP.

Professor Pullicino claimed that far too often elderly patients who could live longer are placed on the LCP and it had now become an ‘assisted death pathway rather than a care pathway’. He cited ‘pressure on beds and difficulty with nursing confused or difficult-to-manage elderly patients’ as factors.

CAN YOU SAY "COMING TO AMERICA???"

“The continuing collapse of the NHS is not only an indictment of single payer health care: It is a warning to the U.S. about centralized control of health care,” he said.“The continuing collapse of the NHS is not only an indictment of single payer health care: It is a warning to the U.S. about centralized control of health care.”

“Adding injury to injury, how easy it is for the bureaucrats to lard on the goodies on the private insurance companies’ dimes–as is already happening. What makes us think that a too strained and bureaucratically suffocated private sector won’t eventually end up in a collapse–further harming the economy–and unable to provide for patients properly?” he said.“Once that happens (with malice aforethought?) Obamacarian class warriors will give a war whoop of triumph for having destroyed the dreaded private sector–and force us into single payer. See,“NHS Meltdown” posts. Lose. Lose. Lose.”

Lifecheck.com ,the ultra conservative highly inaccurate website spouting such biased and fake nonsense as :

"The (Obama) administration has issued rules for "$1 abortions in ObamaCare" and "requires all persons enrolled in insurance plans that include elective abortion coverage to pay" an abortion premium."

Mostly it all depends on which pack of liars you choose to listen to. Neither party concerns themself with facts. It actually surprises me that either party can spell truth, fact, or integrity.

Hezekiah there IS objective truth, but I think Texan is just expressing the frustration of Americans today when faced with"dueling facts"presented by opposing political parties.

There is also such a thing as subjective truth. Hezekiah it isn't pretending when it is true. I learned long ago that polititions will promise us anything to get elected, then when in office cease to worry about those promises. Especialy when they are lame ducks. I read, listen, and study while prepairing to vote, and you can believe that I have found out, all of them lie about something. Some may lie more than others, but they ALL lie. Party makes no difference. AND THAT'S THE TRUTH!

Pretending?. We have a government of the rich, by the rich and for the rich. What useful things have come out of either side for the benefit of the working people in this country?.

I realize that you have your head up Obummers ass so deep that you have a brown ring around your neck, but tell us what wondrous things that the
DemoKrats have done better than anyone else. I'm sure that you can find plenty of things about the Republicans to bitch about though.

Of course, health insurance reform is the greatest accomplishment of this term.

But my favorite interest is in ARPA-E research grants to help develop renewable energy. A lot of progress has been made in a few short years. It doesn't get much attention in the mainstream media.

Democrats are responsible for the following:

8-Hour Workday
Social Security
Minimum Wage Law
G.I. Bill of Rights
Marshall Plan
NATO
Peace Corps
Medicare
Medicaid
Civil Rights Act of 1964
Voting Rights Act of 1965
Water Quality Act
Clean Air Act
Women's Suffrage Amendment
Workers Compensation Act
Unemployment Compensation Act
Rural Electrification Act
Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation
Federal Home Loan Program
Securities & Exchange Act
Guaranteed Student Loan Program
Family and Medical Leave Act
