Suddenly, as a volunteer, I'm involved in campaigning in support of health care reform this week. Our very intelligent, extremely hard-working US Rep. is out on break (as they all are this month), and he's being attacked by people who just don't understand that our healthcare system (that I've worked in for years) is terribly broken and cannot continue. It's collapsing under its own weight.
I believe it's critical for people not to react with knee-jerk fear of what they perceive as the unknown. Predictions being bandied about by pharmaceutical companies and insurers who have been making out like bandits for decades are pure falcifications they're fabricating to try to protect their turf. We CAN'T AFFORD THEM! They must modernize and find moral alternative ways of producing income that aren't hurting others to satiate their greed.
