Further to my previous post on The President's Plans for Healthcare Reform, I have today seen two excellent blogs by my fellow AfroSpear member Eddie Griffin.
One asks, "What Do You Object To?". The President is seeking to make healthcare available and affordable for everyone. What exactly is the problem with this?
The other, A Detailed Examination of Healthcare Myths, spells it out very clearly.
I gotta say, this is one area in which the UK is way ahead of the U.S.A. Nobody in Britain has to worry about forking out for healthcare. We only have to worry about whether or not our local primary care trusts can afford to pay for the treatment we seek - and even this should not be an issue except in extraordinary cases.
If the economy continues the way it is going, however, this is going to become more and more of an issue.
As I said in my previous blog, the President is seeking to save money by reducing wastage and allocating more appropriately money which is already in the system.
What is the objection to this?
