Free mobile clinics draw crowds of uninsured
Americans need HEALTH CARE, not health insurance.
Obama screwed the pooch on his HC reform.
Seriously, its a total FAIL, far as I can tell.
For most American, no health insurance means they get no health care.
I think it was the congress who screwed the pooch. Especially the senate.
Yeah that's true.
But my point is that HC insurance is the means to the end, not the end in itself.
We could just as easily provide HC without any insurance companies if we had the political will to arrange it.
We do it this way because the system we have was an organic (that is to say, it's been developed piecemeal over time, and not one grant system put in place all at once) system.
I'm of the opinion that the whole HC insurance concept has outlived its usefulness.
The drug companies are to greedy to let that happen.
Wait a minute....Obama and the Dems solved this problem with their wonderful bill. Why bring this up again?
When has the Gov't ever solved anything?
Everyone does have access to health care

There are many systems out there to choose from, here are just a few;
