A Comment on Health Care

I don't know what will happen with Congress and the health insurance debate but this is what I do know:
  1. Health insurance has become unaffordable for many working people. My own policy went up a hundred dollars last month and is now costing me over $400 monthly! Yet I have a $1200 deductible to meet before I collect anything.
  2. Executives at health insurance companies are paid huge amounts of money.
  3. Health care in the US is not as good as it should be.
Part of our medical problems are due to lifestyle choices, and another part is due to greed - greedy insurance execs, greedy pharmaceutical corporations, and no doubt other groups too. Something needs to change and soon.
