Health Care For All

Tuesday, July 17, 2007

18,000 Americans die every year because they don't have a health insurance card. We should be taking to the streets with rage, but we're too damn conditioned and accepting of this fate.

I'm just saying.

Saw a thing on TV the other night about a woman with a rare type of cancer - she has health insurance but the company won't pay for her medication ($4000 a month!) because it's not proven to work on her type of cancer so, therefore, it's "experimental" treatment and not covered. Basically, they've condemned her to death for the sake of some dollars. That just is so wrong in every way.

I agree with Michael Moore, the only way to go is with a not-for-profit system. I am old enough to remember what that was like, before the insurance companies came in and screwed up everything and all medical systems slowly became for-profit. The system has steadily eroded in quality while climbing in cost. A single payer, not-for-profit system is truly the way to go with universal health care for EVERYONE. Problem is, only Kucinich and Moore want to give us this.

In Australia we pay part of our tax towards health care - medicines and public health care is then subsidised by the government. You can choose to go private and pay top dollar or you can use the public system. Whichever you choose, medicines are still subsidised.

I'm impressed with Australian insurance model. It is important for one government to secure their citizens, subsidizing the medicines and health care policies are seems to be very good idea..

It wasn't long after 9/11, September 11, 2001, that I began this website. I felt compelled to connect with other people around the globe. I had recently heard about "weblogs" or "blogs" and I dove right into Blogger.com. I searched for others to connect with online and I found Ageless. It led to meeting many great friends to discuss events of the day. From then on it snowballed. Most importantly we offered one another support and friendship across the globe; finding that we were just a few keystrokes away.
