There is a lot of noise surrounding Obama’s plan for health care. The debate is somewhat nebulous however and appears more like a partisan posturing.
It seems a good deal of our economic issues have to do with ever rising healthcare cost.
What seems to be missing, with the exception of a few local bloggers, is an awareness that much the “debate” is more centered around WHO is going to pay for access to quality healthcare rather than WHY, we or our government are tolerating the continually escalating cost.
Some solutions on the minds of some, as I have read on local blogs, suggest eliminating health care insurance, place hefty regulatory price caps on all medical and healthcare products, providing tax incentives for medical practioners who voluntarily subsidize poorer income families, and more, etc.
Do you think these ideas seem reasonable ? What do you think?
Anyone care to discuss it on TV?
WCCA has plenty of forum shows waiting for some honset discussion on this matter. Call me at the station.
