Re: Healthcare Reform

I think their original intent was honorable and surely if you
spend trillions of dollars something good will come of it,
somewher along the line. But in general, I think they lost
sight of the goal posts as they punted away our children's
economic future to the players for the corporate team.
Question: How do you punish the insurance industry for their
past misdeeds of greed and corruption in health care, wrongful
medical treatments, wrongful denials and undue influence over
US health policies and practices; and provide safeguards in
public health policy so that they do not practice these
deceptive tactics in the future?
A. Take the monopoly of control over healthcare away from them
by adding competition to the equation that will force them to
fulfill obligations to their clientele if they desire to keep
their clients’ business - the basic principle of our economy?
B. i.) Give them billions of taxpayer dollars; ii.) give them
greater control over healthcare and the medical community to
decide what is evidence based medical practices as a matter of
policy; and iii.) force all US citizens to pay to participate
in the "reformed" plan under threat that they will be
financially penalized if they fail to do so?
I would choose "A", but I think we just chose "B".
