Liz's personal view on medicine
This is a really good post, once again, from the Contemplation of Preponderance blog. It's pretty mcuh exactly how I feel about health care. Everyone bitches about the cost of a universal health care system (or socialized medicine), yet when you factor in the insurance preminums and the deductibles, you're already paying for it anyway. And the insurance companies only pay so much for treatment anyway. She also points out another enemy in this, the greedy old people who want their Medicare, while the rest of us get jack squat. They're almost as bad as the HMO's. I hope someone can put them in line, although I'm not holding my breath.
