A quick note on health carePosted Thursday, September 17, 2009, at 2:35 PM
Just a little while ago as I was perusing my daily headlines and reading YET ANOTHER story on health care I reached a conclusion. I have absolutely no idea what is in any of the several proposed bills and frankly I don't trust anyone involved in the process.
This is not an issue of black or white, right or left, etc. The reason this is such an issue, at least for me, is because of all of the misinformation out there for us all to see.
With a handful of different bills on the table, who knows what's in one vs. what's in another? No average American actually has time to read thousands of pages of this stuff. Heck, neither do the politicians.
Every group who weighs in on the bills obviously has some sort of interest, whether financial or political, in each of these bills.
Basically, what I'm trying to say is that while I may not have a clue what is actually going on in Washington with our health care I do know one thing and that is that virtually everyone who opens their mouth about it is lying to us all about something.
Any thoughts? Epiphanies?
