Nurse: We're just waiting for the justices to tell us how the surgery went.
Just got a call from our insurance company; they want my wife to change her medication, to “save money”, otherwise known as switching to a product THEY sell, and will make more money. Interesting that bond between insurance companies and pharmaceutical companies is much stronger than between doctor and patient. THAT is what “PRIVATE INSURERS” will be even better at if the health care bill is fully implemented, and it is the REPUBLICAN insertions in the bill doing that.
YES, there needs to be change: #1 is to get a single payer system. #2 is to make medicare part D NEGOTIABLE ON PRICE FOR ALL PHARMACEUTICALS. #3 Insert a “review panel” of medical experts and patient ambundsmen to review ALL “malpractice” suits, and settle without going to a “jury trial” of ignorant publics instead of “trial by their peers”, which means only folks with medical knowledge can decide whether there was “malpractice”. NO pregnant woman should be promised a totally “healthy” baby,especially if she doesn’t follow any advice from a doctor, or see one until it’s too late. That is just ONE example!
