Here is what I know about socialized health care and how I may help you,

I have a friend who seven years ago was diagnosed with hepatitis C, the cure (a form of interferon) is 50 to
70 % successful. With that rate alone to a bureaucrat your treatment would be denied. The following is true; In England a woman of his age was also diagnosed with the same hepatitis C, the cost of the treatment is no less than $1,000.00 a week and that is just for the one interferon injection the treatment is repeated for 26 weeks or 52 weeks as was his. The cost was over $52,000.00. He was fortunate that he had extremely good insurance from work that paid 90% of all drug cost. FACT: If he had no insurance the drug company would have made it available to him almost free if not totally free such is in our capitalist market. At this time all markers of the hepatitis are 100% negative. He has to test every 3 months. He is in total remission and the chance now of its re-occurrence is slim to none. The treatment worked and he had the worst genome virus of hepatitis C.  He have been in remission for 6 years now but his counterpart in England is dead,

I was told that in England if the treatment is at a cost of over $30,000.00 a year the treatment is denied. Now I have noticed that there are ear marks in the proposed health care bill being taken into consideration now. For things like play grounds, jungle gyms, some park running paths as well as a plentiful amount of pet projects probably doled out to some bureaucrat's financier, friend or relative. Down here we call it the good old boys network. I feel if health care reform is to be made it must be an intelligent one without nationalizing another free enterprise system and suffering more bureaucrats making life or death decisions that should only be between the patient and the Doctor, only they can make an unbiased decision in the best interest of the patient.

Do you have a Mother or Father in the baby boom generation?
Do you want a beurocrat to thell them NO?
Do you want to be put on a waiting list to se a specialist?

Instead of jungle gyms and pet projects put money into schools for mandatory healthy education as when I was in school. At least one hour of gym with a running track, gymnastics equipment, volleyball and other physical exercise equipment with instruction an such programs that would be under professional supervision, Parents today can not or will not take their kids to a park just to work out for a hour a day  not even 2 or 3 days a week just think of the cost of all the individual cars wasting gas just to get one individual child to that new jungle gym probably built by some bureaucrat's relation or friend as corruption rules. We were promised clarity in government once you can see it you must control it by telling your senator or rep. how to vote. Let's get back to the school program.

One: The extra funding would supplement schools by covering health education departments so the normal school funding could be diverted to academics.

Two: Education is the only way out of a depression! It takes years for the economy to make a comeback. In this time if we educate our children properly, make them ready for the new economics and the future trades created by our free enterprise system that will develop new creative ways for energy, transportation and electronics (just to name three examples of the way our economy will be advancing) we will have useful and creative members of society instead of a stagnant society of entitlement specialists.

Lets not get off track; most important now is to contact your Senator and representatives!
Let them know we are not yet ready for socialized medicine. Not the way the good old boys would have it. If congress will not vote for you, let them know we will vote for fresh blood in congress in 2010

Good topic and I have one big point that I was recently made aware of and that is that Obama was asked if he and his family would join into the new plan and he ignored the question. WOULD NOT ANSWER!

It is my understanding that the same question was put before Congress and they replied "We will think about it".

Man, those are some endorsements........gotta be a good plan, don't you think?

Contact your Congressmaen and Representative NOW!!
