Now you see this is where you and I differ. We have a great health system here. Best of both worlds. It doesn't have to be a disaster. We have a safety net health care system for those who need it and the option for private health cover for everyone else. I can see any doctor I want, my insurance company doesn't dictate that, and if I don't like them I can go somewhere else. Let's hope the US Govt takes a moderate line and develops something like the Australian system. I wouldn't swap it! Having said that, hope you get to express yourself...

I agree with Arizaphale. I don't want to see ALL health care bills dumped, which is how it seems it is trending, towards all or nothing. Lots of countries make it work. I hope we can, too.

I hope you can find peace in the fact that you are trying. And I really wouldnt worry about getting into see a pediatric neurologist. The people without health care aren't lining up there. At clinics, dentists, eye doctors where they haven't had care because of the financial cost, yes, but if your kid needs to go to a neurologist and you dont have insurance and dont have the money, you go through the shriners or some other aid program to get seen. It's just not something you put off. You go because you have to.

I disagree for different reasons - I think the bills under discussion don't go far enough. I believe that single-payer health care is the only way to go.

How many other nations are trying to develop health care systems like ours? NONE. Because ours sucks. We spend more money for worse results than almost anywhere else on the planet.

I RALLY think it's time for a new post. LOL

Glad to know your sister is doing better.
