So I come home from the store and turn the channel to CNN for a few minutes were I learn that we might just be hours away from a health-care reform bill. They show part of a speech from Nancy Pelosi praising the bill, and then a little bit of a speech from some Republican denouncing it with the same old tired argument that we’ll be taking away the ability of doctors to make decisions. To this, I have one thing to say
STOP SAYING THAT!!!
First of all, the doctor can prescribe whatever drugs or treatment he or she wants and a government run health-care plan may or may not pay for it.
THIS IS EXACTLY THE SAME THING THAT HAPPENS UNDER PRIVATELY RUN INSURANCE!!!
I have some concerns about health-care reform, and I believe that there are legitimate criticisms, but I hate it when people use lies to try and defeat a bill.
Oh, and since this is the pit, fuck, shit, damn, hell, and ass.
