    I think this is constant with reality. I also think this is why the congress is beginning to run away from it.

    I think they should have done health care before cap and trade. Cap and trade just killed their reputation and authority. And while I personally oppose national health care, I have to admit I think I am a minority on this. I think even the most passionate supporter of national health care would rather have a good program in the future, then a sucky one now. It is going to have to wait unit the electorate cools down a little.

    Cap and trade is the Final Chapter in the story of the Amurkin Mpyre.
    The previous chapter was "free trade".

    Health Care Reform Vs Health Insurance Reform
    By Henry Hanson

    I heard that H.R. 3200 may cause us to lose 125,000 doctors within a few years. H.R. 3200 is not health care reform. Health care reform would boost the number of doctors and nurses, and open clinics in rural and ghetto areas making health care more available to all.
    If the administration and congress are serious about health care improvement, here are some suggestions to reduce cost of providing care (no, it’s not free):
    1. Immediate action to reform outrageous lawsuit settlements (tort reform)
    2. Many scholarships to encourage young folks to strive to become doctors or nurses.
    3. Low cost loans or grants to doctors who would establish clinics in poor downtown areas or rural areas.
    4. Government assistance for clinics established in poor or rural areas.
    We need charitable institutions to step to the plate in providing scholarships and grants or loans. We also need the government to help finance these options with minimum oversight and paper work that is better handled at a local level.

    RWJF survey summarized in the September 14, 2009 edition of the New England Journal of Medicine shows that 62.9 percent of physicians nationwide support proposals to expand health care coverage that include both public and private insurance options—where people under the age of 65 would have the choice of enrolling in a new public health insurance plan (like Medicare) or in private plans. The survey shows that just 27.3 percent of physicians support a new program that does not include a public option and instead provides subsidies for low-income people to purchase private insurance. Only 9.6 percent of doctors nationwide support a system where a Medicare-like public program is created in lieu of any private insurance. A majority of physicians (58%) also support expanding Medicare eligibility to those between the ages of 55 and 64.

    In every region of the country, a majority of physicians supported a combination of public and private options, as did physicians who identified themselves as primary care providers, surgeons, or other medical subspecialists. Among those who identified themselves as members of the American Medical Association, 62.2 percent favored both the public and private options.

    The survey was conducted between June 25 and September 3, 2009 by Salomeh Keyhani, M.D., M.P.H., and Alex Federman, M.D., M.P.H., of the Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York City. While the survey was conducted in several “waves” over a tumultuous summer for the health reform debate, no statistically significant differences were identified in physician responses throughout the summer.
    Doctors overwhelmingly favor healthcare plan!
