I'll tell you something else: If Hillary promises health care, she better have a staff working on it now, and have it ready if she does win next year.



How long would it take for her to implement that if she is elected president? Suppose she does not have a staff working on it now?

Hopefully she can



The baby boomers are 15 years older and retired or close to it



US Corporations like GM, FORD, United Airlines are crumbling under the load of providing health insurance to their workers, current and former



47m people in AMerica are uninsured, which means that the rest of us are involuntarily subsidising their healthcare.



Every other industrialised nation on earth, and a few non-industrialised ones, can afford to provide universal health insurance.



Let's hope America catches up soon

Yet when she was first lady, her husband the President had a Congress of Democrats, and still were unable to get the legislation passed. It does not work. All one has to do is look at the current system to see this. No one wants to take the hard step, holding people accountable. Until someone does, the system will continue to be warped.



Remember, you get what you pay for. If you want free health care, well, don't expect it to be too good. You cannot sue the government, so, say goodbye to holding providers accountable. Tort reform the hard way.

If you really think the government can provide good health care ask any veteran who has spent hours in a clinic waiting to be seen by a doctor. Now that's a perfect example on how it would be. A Drs. app. would then take all day for the medical system we know today would disappear.

Instead of long hours on the phone to your insurance company trying to fathonm the unfathomable?



While they find new ways to deny you coverage??



And BTW how long are the lines for the 47m UNinsured in AMerica?



Or don't you care about them?
