What Doesn't Make Sense

As stated above, I believe those who vote for this healthcare bill need to have to use the healthcare it provides. I also take issue the left's argument that the healthcare bill will cost less than what we have spent in Iraq and Afghanistan. The money has already been spent in Iraq and Afghanistan. Saying we need to spend more money we don't have on the healthcare bill because of the money ALREADY spent doesn't make sense. What else doesn't make sense is that in America we have citizens who don't see doctors or dentists because they can't afford it like the folks from Wise County, Virginia pictured here as they wait in line for the annual free clinic at the fairgrounds. See Link. We have citizens going to bed hungry because money went for rent instead of food. How can that be?
We have insurance companies increasing their investor's dividends by denying coverage or purging insurance policy holders because they have cost the company too much. This weekend a blogger named Ramona directed me to the Bill Moyers Journal on 7/31/09. He was interviewing Wendell Potter, who with almost 20 years inside the health insurance industry, saw for-profit insurers hijack our health care system and put profits before patients. It is an eye-opening account and I urge you all to watch it as you decide how this healthcare issue should be worked out.
