CNN has me thinking with an open mind about all sides of the healthcare debate. Everyone has a study about this and an analysis about that but I personally turn to CNN for balance reporting and to FOX and MSNBC for commentary. The following story exemplifies the type reporting I prefer. If you only listen to FOX or MSNBC, that’s your business and I hope your insurance covers the explosion of that vein in your forehead—simmer down now.
If folks spent less time yelling, the valid points about waste, tort reform and administrative mistakes could be heard.
I have always said that healthcare reform needs “teeth.” Not a dental plan but some hard decisions about the money this nation spends for healthcare that could have been avoided. i.e. the Diabetic who refuses to check his blood sugar level; your uninsured uncle who eats every and anything then gets rushed to the ER. Some of the money uncle spent on food and drinks could have gone to a basic health care plan.
We should brace for a battle because one person’s waste is another person’s income.
