True healthcare reform by Richard Sarnat, M.D. "...regular utilization of chiropractors as primary care physicians reduces the need for hospitalization by 60.2%, hospital days by 59%, pharmaceutical usage by 85%, outpatient surgeries and procedures by 62% and overall global health care costs by more than 50%."

Nels where did you get that info from? everyone has healthcare. just go to the ER, they cant turn you down, how do you think all the illegals do it, have childern, etc. we pay for it all. check the blue pages for public assistance. I did not have insurance for a few years, and when I needed to see a doc, I paid out of my pocket, or 25.00 a week til it's paid for. example the 3 government run insurance agentcies we have now are a shame. think? veterens are always being blasted for their coverage, or lack of. medicare,medicaid, broke? seniors need supplamental insurance to help with the lack of coverage now. this reform that's being pushed now is not going to fix these problems, if they can't get even one of the 3 we have now to work right, how do you think they'll suddenly revamp the whole mess. just because you think it works in other countries, has no bearing on how it would work with our system of corrupt government. get one of our programs now to work, then all of them. then lets see what they can change. read the bill, what they are proposing is a joke, and will run us in the ground. check senior cutbacks and some others. wait til your a senior.

Do not try and pass off your lack of knowledge as fact dumb aarse. The largest majority of vets receive VERY good care. Care started to go down hill under your Dumbya admin with his budget cuts till he was cought and exposed at Walter Reed. You are a stupid arse hole who doesn't know squat. Go to Lebanon Vally Va. Hospitial and check out the care there, talk to the vets you moron and stop listening to Faux news.

You are an idiot.

hey if you could read without anger, and speak without name calling[which you cant] vets have good coverage, could be better. media info says other. and to blame budget cuts on my guy,[as you claim] and label me right winger, well who's the idiot. dig back for your facts, and look at whats about to break in this country now. there two horses in the same barn, get it. were at a point where if your just alittle left, your a right winger. because the further left you go the less sense you make. and theres to many off the page that are in power. study the banking industry. you'll notice just about ever top official is left/dem. its a fact. some righties will go with the money, there crooks too. study the housing market, and who designed that scheme.[actually it was a great plan to make billions] your guys, it took awhile to fall apart. and the horses get the money from both directions, coming in, and going out. the people in charge now are the worst, and its going to get worse. in 4 years you'll see. and I pray i'm wrong. and i'll admit it, I'm strong. I want this to be a better place. these guys are'nt it either. hope is great, false hope is foolish.

For over 200 years this country has fought against tyranny , marxism , socialism , and communism. Why are people willingly opening their arm to it now? Is it because they were stupid enough to put a black muslim in the white house so they didn't look racist ? No one is going to tell me he is no longer a muslim , and no one is going to tell me he was born in Hawaii . I hoped there would never come a day when I would even think this , but , our once great nation is becoming a cess pool . God is the only one I care about forgiving me for that. All else do not matter to me .People can call me anything that pleases them, but I know that I am still a REAL AMERICAN . GOD HELP AMERICA .

You all fighting about how our country is whether your right or wrong on your comments. America is about to fall apart financially if something is not done, so we should stop being racist jerks and we should all come together as one nation under God and do something for all the people. Rich should be taxed like everyone else, and the poor should become more equal to everyone else, we are to split in differing economic statuses to realize that we should all be in this together not all enemies. If health care reform will get us closer tobetter health care for all I say lets do it and stop barking up each others butt.
