Yeah just get the National Health Service like here in the UK. It's great. Never have to worry about a thing!
Yeah it baffles me why so many American vote against a National Health Service. Are they mad?!! I hope Obama can carry on trying to improve things.
Yeah, gotta love Obama. I wish he was president of the world.
I'm allergic to amoxicyllin too!I was exactly red as him...But here, in Italy, we have health insurance. But we also have Berlusconi. and it sucks..
Jeffrey, the same thing happened to my daughter a year and half ago. We gave her amox. and within hours her entire boy was swollen and covered with little pimple-like bumps. We had to take her to the emergency room where we waited for two hours for a doctor to look her over and say "Hmmmmm, looks like it MIGHT be an allergic reaction. Anyways, here's your bill." Which was almost 400 dollars.It's just ridiculous.
Obama's "reform" is nothing like the UK health service. What we now pay in fees will simply be collected by the government. We'll be forced, under penalty of law, to purchase private insurance.
All these health issue comics...maybe you should just move here (Canada)...free Health insurance =D
It's not about "Obama's" reform, it's about reform, period. Unfortunately health care has fallen victim to politics, not government. I suspect that anyone who doesn't have a problem with the American health care system as it is now hasn't had serious health problems, gets insurance through their employer, or is already able to get their own private health insurance.
Well said Mr. Brown,Health care reform has indeed been butchered by petty political agendas. While i applaud the effort of this administration to pass a bill in the name of bipartisanship, it has unfortunately proven to be completely ineffective.As Americans, we don't need to look at other countries for an example of how government can actively play a positive roll in the health care system. Look no further than Hawaii's (mandated) Prepaid Healthcare act, which brought their coverage down from 30% to about 8%. Nationwide we are at about 16% uninsured, and some states as high as 26% uninsured (2009 gallup poll).Politics aside, affordable near universal coverage has been, and more importantly needs to be achieved. We need more action, and less political games. There are real people and real lives at stake, not just poll statistics.ahem, *comes down from soapbox*-Erwin
