“While I don’t think that someone who is diagnosed with a massive tumor should the next day be able to have millions and millions and millions of dollars of health care provided, I do believe there can be a structure to deal with the issue of pre-existing conditions,” Dreier said.
Dreier is a Republican member of the House of Representatives. To give him the benefit of the doubt, I don’t think he really would allow a fellow human to just die from the massive tumor if he could help, but his philosophy here seems to say that we as a society should just assign the person with a tumor and inadequate health insurance to the whims of fate. (sorry about the cliche) What structure, Representative Dreier? Who pays for what care? If you and your fellows in governments do not fund high risk pools adequately, then people who need help will be left to cope.
I am so tired of seeing scams on facebook, click share so this baby can have a heart transplant. So tired of jars in stores to contribute to the surgery fund for some poor person. So tired of fundraisers to help someone get needed medical care.
We are the richest country in the world. We have wonderful health care IF YOU CAN AFFORD IT.
When did we lose the idea that we only advance when we help the least able to help themselves
