Healthcare has been a divisive political landmine that has ravaged unsuspecting politicians for years. The idea that something must be done is uniform the method in which healthcare is reformed has been less lucent. I've labored over my position on this topic for some time and I believe the idea is sound and the need is present what is lacking is the desire to meet the challenge.
Having healthcare may have been a luxury in years past but it's an absolute necessity today. Our environment has grown so toxic that more and more people are requiring medical care at much higher frequencies. The costs must be reigned in; we cannot continue to allow something as integral as our national health as a nation to be sabotaged because off wallstreet's insatiable appetite for profit. We've become captives of the system, sacrificed as pawns in a greater game beyond our reach.
The idea that the current suffering of those with no health care could not by some measure be diminished with even a system as flawed as medicare is just not true. If the system set up for our veterans is good enough for our military why is it not good enough for civilian Americans? The misguided wisdom of the politicians on capital hill is that the system is over burdened and ineffectual. If the people added in are required to pay in to the system that in itself would strengthen the system and generate some revenue to help pay for it.
I do not possess a silver bullet to cure our ills but the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. So the first step has been taken, the acknowledgment that a problem exists. The second step would be genuine debate over how to tackle the problem without political jockeying clouding the issues with the intent to mislead. The third step would be making the sacrifices necessary to pay for it. The fourth step would be taking the vote to the people from there as a nation we must decide when enough is enough. Are we going to live in fear and allow those who have not our best interest at heart to keep us bound by fear and doubt? More Debate at EmpireUndone.com

It would have been nice if he ran it through Babelfish first.

Brain riddled with leftism
Punctuation is your friend. Fix your grammar, then work on health care.
That's assuming there is a brain. That's assuming a lot...
That was a pretty fast zot...
What, no ZOT insurance?
The government is the problem with healthcare. They have stuck their noses into so far the system is an move with government permission. We need to get the government out of healthcare, not add more government.
Yep, and well deserved. But I like the ones like yesterday better. The ones where Ad Mod waits in the bushes for them to come back and comment...
You have been struck by lightning. As punishment for your statist views, you will now have to wait six months for treatment. By the time they get to you, your condition will be so severe that you will be a prime candidate for the death panel.
The Usurper tried to fix his grammar, but she died of cancer anyway.
According to New Yawk Minute yesterday, that's 'Unsurper'...
