I have not heard or seen any list of the already available health care programs such as CHIPS, Medicaid, Medicare, etc., as well as the myriad of State programs available. There are also many free clinics that the poor and immigrants (legal and illegal)
After we establish the availability, the cost and the accessibility of these programs and subtract out the people that dont participate because of choice, lethargy or whatever , we should have an approximate number of people that are not insured or dont have access to routine medical care.
This would be the number of people in some need of health care. That is if we expect that they should not have to reach into their own pockets and pay (old fashioned concept that it is) for their own visit to the doctor.
It is a travesty to force this total reform on all of us citizens (excluding, of course, the president, senate and house members!) at such an astronomical expense to this country.
Emergencies are always taken care of as no one, insured or uninsured is ever turned away.
Why do we dismantle the best health care system in the world and turn it over to a government that cant effectively run any program?
Because those that want this health bill, in Washington, want to break this country. When they break it, financially, they own you.
Most of the “pre-existing conditions” problem is caused by people who refuse to buy insurance until they are sick.
