The current debate over healthcare being exhibited in townhall meetings with congresspeople and senators alike, isn't a bunch of individuals who watched the 6:30 news and started to form an opinion about it. Both sides -- left and right, are organizing their lobbyists, their unions, their corporations, their talk show listeners to go out and disrupt town hall meetings with either pro or against viewpoints. Some examples of this taking effect are: Glenn Beck's 9-12 Project Obama's Unions The insurance industry lobby, America's Health Insurance Plans Conservatives for Patients' Rights. Americans for Prosperity This is just a small sample of left and right wing organizers who are arming people with a script or talking points of what to and not to say. Unfortunately, few, if any people are educated about the REAL healthcare bills being presented in the House and Senate because none of the proposed bills are under 500 pages. One bill in the House is over 1,000 pages long! How can people properly process this much information? So they rely on other people such Sarah Palin for information. Sarah Palin, incorrectly, stated that there would be some kind of "Obama Death Panel" which would determine her son's right to existence based upon his social value to society. Other talk show hosts, including Sean Hannity and O'Reilly are discussing Nationalized Health Insurance and dubbing it Obamacare. What's the truth? I don't know, actually. And the real victims here are people like me -- I've just been diagnosed with a terrible disease that could become life threatening if I don't treat it properly. I am a small business owner and my premiums are too expensive and there are few, if any choices for sole proprietors. Unfortunately, if I were to gain health insurance today, my disease would be considered a pre-existing condition and my health insurance company would not cover it. The real victims here are the uninsured and the insured but deal with rising premiums and insurance companies denying claims for others who have insurance. We absolutely, NEED reform. Our healthcare system is completely screwed up because of private corporations. What we do not need is some gigantic, over-bloated bill in the House and Senate that has the government interfering with your healthcare. But here's the thing: No matter what version of the bill is created, 90-100% of the Republicans will vote against it and 90-100% of the Democrats will vote for it. The best thing to do right now is be an advocate for the uninsured and set price limits on premiums. Also, we need some kind of health insurance plan that will reimburse you a percentage of your fee if the doctor you are seeing, mostly specialists, don't accept insurance. Are either of these provisions in the healthcare bills right now? I have no idea. I haven't sat down and looked at it. I haven't had time to read 500+ pages. Who does?? It's nuts. Congress needs to reform itself before it can reform the entire healthcare industry. Why does one bill need so many pages????
