It certainly is a sad state we have gotten ourselves into. Only the weathy can afford the best of medical care while the poor sleep out in the cold and get weaker every day.
And now we have to employ a middle guy, our insurance company, who has no medical knowledge, telling us what kind of medical service we can have.
Then there's all the medical facilities and doctors charging huge sums of money to the patient to feed their Thursday golf game along with funding their lawyers to avoid malpractice suits.
Oh, and let's not forget the bio medical groups who are the real drug pushers and capitalists in control of keeping us all medicated. Ever notice how much of the media is sponsered by these guys?
Yes, there are a few heroes and do-gooders out there, but the for the most part it's agressive, it's ugly and it's way out of control.
Anybody got any ideas what we can do here in the USA, land of the free, other than to move to Canada or Sweden?

Terrific! Free flu shots for the uninsured. So why is it that the insured don't get flu shot coverage?
I am self-insured by Health Net and do not get coverage for a simple flu shot! To top it off, I just got a note in the mail that increases my premium to $505 a month, an increase of $88 a month. I am healthy and have not used my insurance for some time. This is nuts!
