PHOTO INDEX: HEALTH REFORM LOGO.
MONEY, WAR AND HEALTH
I think it is hysterical how the Senate GOP members, sensible men like Lamar Alexander question the need for Health Care Reform by saying that it will cost too much money and that the deficit will never go away. Take a look at this link: http://costofwar.com/.
4,000 people died in Iraq. We invested over 700 billion dollars and 4,000 soldiers. Where is the return on our investment?
With a national health care plan, we invest in our citizen's future. The dirty little secret here is that government will not administer health care. It might mandate it but the plan itself will be administered by third party fiscal intermediaries. Existing insurance companies will administer it. And they will be watched to make sure rates are fair, costs are contained and Americans will be healthier than ever.
The opponents are screaming about the cost: look at the link again:
You tell me what makes more sense, trying to fight a war looking for phantom weapons of mass destruction or providing a health care system that is fair to all Americans.
