GUEST,Steve BS: Republican response to Health Reform (270* d) RE: BS: Republican response to Health Reform 30 Oct 10


I live in the U.K, i have a friend who lives in Florida, at about the same time both our fathers got cancer, mine had prostate, my friends father pancreatic, under the NHS, my Dad had everything he needed, more drugs than he could ever take, nurses at his bedside (IN HIS OWN HOME) the doctor on call, with his home phone number, everything was catered for, my mother didnt have to pay one penny, sadly, my Dad died in February the following year, my mum has had so much to cope with, but she doesnt owe any money to hospitals, her house is safe, the life they built between them is safe and secure along with her happy memories, now, onto my American friend, luckily, his mother had some health insurance with her employer, but it wasnt enough, seemed everytime they went to the doctor it was $500, the drugs they had to buy cost a fortune, sadly, the outcome was the same, this poor lady is left with mountainous debts, along with that, she has to hold her family together and grieve her lost husband, the difference in the two stories are startling. Wake up America, a National Health Service does not make you a communist nation, you have libraries, police, fire service, Ambulance etc, all funded by the tax payer, why would healthcare be any different, Make your politicians work for you, if they mess it up vote them out, in established wealthy countries like our, Healthcare is a right not a privilege.
Also, why on earth are asthma ventilators $120 in the U.S and around $3 in mainland Europe????? someone is taking you all for a ride!!!
