Republicans who say ''you work for your money?''?
What do you think of Americas health care system? I think the doctors are overpaid. I think the insurance companies charge to much for drugs. I have seen insurance companies turn people down for cancer treatment because they ''are to young to have cervix cancer.'' I have seen hospitals dump people off the hospital bed once they can not pay the bill. One lady had Alzheimer she did not know were she was when they dumped her. Another one had a broken hip and open stitches, broken collar bone. The hospital kicked her out of the bed and put her in a cab pushed her out of it. They did not even tell her where she was going. Whats funny is the only place in America that has universal health care is guantanamo bay. The only people who do get universal health care is the people who blew up the twin towers. When Bush passed a bill saying it was good health care for the older folks. He really gave the drugs to the insurance companies it was a bill they passed saying they can charge what ever price they want to on drugs. Bush even congratulated a 60 year old woman for working three jobs. Just to pay for her medications. She should be resting NOT WORKING! I think we should do socialist health care. It works for Europe, France they get right in and out. I am a college 19 year old that works my butt off! I come from a wealthy family. I had insurance but they did not pay for my operation for my appendix. Now if I did not have allot money in the bank. I would of never been ale to go to school like I am now.I never be able to go to school when I am in hospital debt. It all started in 1971 with president Nixon was on the phone. He wnated a way to get money. The other guy on the phone like well we can just cut back health care. So that's what the insurance companies do now. Their has been people that have been denied to get paid for their (cancer treatment) because they had a east-infection in their passed. How well a society treats those that can not take care of themselves. Is what it says about that society. Everyone says I work for my money. Well, is it fair to make a 60 year old work three jobs to pay for medicine. One medical mess up most people can not go to college. Everyone says republicans are for those who work. Jut because people do not come from good families. Should they get denied health care? We are 27 on the list of health care.We have a higher infant death rate than Somalia. Everyone says my thinking is socialistic that's right before communist. Well, it does not decide who gets health care who does not. Insurance companies already do that. the insurance company bought out our government to pass the law to have control of all drugs. One day you could get cancer need a quarter of a million dollar operation. The insurance company could deny you for saying ''it is experimental''.Is it fair to say you should of worked for your money? Most doctors get paid about 2 million a yar. WHy do they need five sports cars? What a millions not enough? YES! IT TRUE IT HAPPENS HERE IN AMERICA! OPEN YOUR EYES.I CAN SHOW YOU FOOTAGE JUST SEND ME A EMAIL I'LL SHOW YOU A 60 YEAR OLD WOMAN GETTING KICKED OUT OF THE HOSPITAL. JUST WATCH SICKO. I CAN PROVE MY FACTS WATCH THIS http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0386032/ REAL EVENTS What happens when you are old? You have to work 3 jobs at 60 years old to pay for your medication to stay alive? I am in med school I am going to school to be a doctor. * Brain/doctor:$450,00-$650,000 * Anesthesiology: $306,964 * Surgery, general: $255,438 * Obstetrics/gynecology: $233,061 * Psychiatry: $163,144 * Internal medicine: $155,530 * Pediatrics/adolescent medicine: $152,690 * Family practice (without obstetrics): $150,267 * ER doctors get paid 215,000+ a year (This is from the Medical Group Management Association, Physician Compensation and Production Report, 2003, as reprinted in the Department of Labor's career outlook handbook.) Okay, maybe doctors do not make that much. Perhaps I was mistaken for give me. I was exaggerating on the doctor part. If we had free college their be no loans to pay off. Socialist college.

At some point, the doctor is going to have to decide whether he wants to follow the Hippocratic oath or the Obamacratic oath. When the interest of the patient and the doctor are not in alignment, how is he going to make a decision as to what is the right thing to do when faced with the realities of federal law that... More

LIE! Not in this country. You have NEVER seen anyone dumped from a hospital bed for not being able to pay.
Answered By: Alden Nash - 8/20/2010
Doctors spent a lot of money going to medical school, and malpractice insurance is expensive. They're not as rich as you might imagine. Most of them make 150k-200k/year. The ones that actually make big money (400k/year), are heart surgeons and brain surgeons who have enormous responsibilities.

Your complete lack of any facts and willingness to lie to prove a point that is nonexistent is interesting. You will make a fine liberal when you grow up.

"Most" doctors are making well under $200,000 a year. What planet are you on? Maybe some plastic surgeons in Beverly Hills pull in millions but the masses don't.

Innuendo and anecdotal evidence aside. I don't buy your "examples". A large majority of Americans were more than satisfied with their health care. Oh and most doctors don't get paid 2 million a year LOL!!!

You think Doctors are paid too much , because you never had to become a Doctor. Most Doctors don't make that much. If you look what A General Practitioner has to go through, and look how measly their pay is, you would feel sorry for them rather than hate them. You complain about our medical system, I just got a... More

Don't you know how long a person has to attend medical school before they become a doctor? Do you know that from one mistake a doctor could lose his job and face malpractice and other evil lawsuits? 600,000 a year? That sounds fair.

There are problems with the health care system (what huge system doesn't have problems?) but I think for an individual like me, $360 bucks a month is a pretty good deal, considering it pays for everything if something bad happened to me (like serious illness or an injury) and $20 per office visit is a pretty good deal...
