(its great that we have people in the White House who are willing to dicuss)
After listening to this I feel a little bit better about the plan… but there is just one issue I have when it comes to the question of rashining of care. I will agree that it already happens and even to some extent in the governments Medicaid/Medicare program, but I think the question people have about rationing is truely this: If, and let me say the word again, If, the cost of this government insurance option ends up costing billions or even trillions of dollars more than projected, will there be a possibility of rationing? If there is rationing, how will it work? If the cost ends up being so high AND there is another recession, what happens?
We need to know the positives AND negatives of the plan and mediate the negatives.
Sadly, this particular video does not asnwer this question which is what many opponents and even people who WANT health care reform are truely asking. What happens if… it costs more than the 1.4 Trillion dollars… What happens if… the government is caught with its pants down and can not pay for the people who are on the plan… If the White House and anyone else who truely wants health care reform to happen, then these “what if” scenerios need to be answered.
You can always plan to succeed, but also prepare for failure.
Lets be grown out there people… don’t get violent, but discuss this issues. Lets also be sexy… look really good while your asking thoe questions in your designer footwear and in style fashion sense.
