Interesting viewpoint from Dr. Linda Halderman
I learned a lot about the cost of health care when I had a hybrid general surgery practice in California ‘s rural San Joaquin Valley. My practice consisted of uninsured women with breast cancer combined with a smaller percentage of cosmetic patients whose cash payments for “vanity care” subsidized the treatment of women unable to pay for needed medical treatment.
And another article: Senator Baucus: what $856 billion buys you. Loved the comment by pursang which best describes how our world is upside down:
Its ironic that the same people who made sure you could get a safe abortion on demand as a teen will give us a healthcare system that will force you to sneak down an alley to get a hip replacement with your own money when you hit 80.
Perhaps we should borrow a slogan from the pro-choice crowd:
“KEEP YOUR LAWS OFF MY BODY!”
