@Pippinwhite -- Haven't you heard? Obamacare is supposed to solve those problems! Maybe it will and I'm just a cynic, but I have to wonder. I don't know if people who can't afford insurance now will be able to afford even basic Obamacare insurance.
There's no question the health care system in the U.S. is in bad shape, but how do you pay for the health care for 300 million people? Is there a solution? If there is, I can't see an immediate one.
Some say it's the doctors who drive up medical costs, some say it's the insurance companies, some the hospitals, some the government. I don't know. What's a life worth?
