Comments on: Senate healthcare bill: Opt-out is in, Snowe is not http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2009/10/26/senate-healthcare-bill-opt-out-is-in-snowe-is-not/ Tracking U.S. politics Wed, 16 Nov 2016 03:39:51 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Former Canadian http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2009/10/26/senate-healthcare-bill-opt-out-is-in-snowe-is-not/comment-page-1/#comment-402129 Wed, 28 Oct 2009 04:03:03 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/frontrow/?p=21536#comment-402129 I watched in dismay for months as inlaws and friends suffered and eventually died while waitin for tests and treatments that would have begun in days in America. Public option is NOT the answer. Government cannot run this system. The pay scake abd such DOES lead to rationing of care. This is not from the “greed of the government” as often cited. It is from the lack of doctors. With pay limited to government levels, the best and the brightest do not have a desire to be doctors. We had about 40 doctors in our city. Population was slightly over 100,000.

Whomever you are, support the national healthcare idea with a public option.
The “boo” policy of calling it “socialistic” is so 20th century. Who cares if it is partially a government program? F.D.R. had to get government more involved to fix things also, and the only thing more costly than health care is a lack of it. And personally I’d prefer no OPT OUT Option – I am from Texas and trust me I know / we know the one Governor idiotic enough to refuse federal money (has done so before) is Rick Perry – the man I most want to see defeated next election. Loyal Texan and sane person who is not afraid of what works fine everywhere else, dg

Hopefully it’s only the beginning of real healthcare reform in this country.
