I'm tired of hearing, no need for health care reform!

     Could we please take just a minute to stop and think in general terms. Do you feel the company you work for cares if you enjoy or care about the work you do? Is the company you work for more interested in making as much money as it can, instead of paying you a descent wage for the work you are doing? Are you afraid if you got sick the company may think of replacing or eliminating your job? Do you think your state government cares if public schools are funded? Last one, what's the effect of state government cutting your city budget's going to have on homeowners and you?
     Calling the biggest health care reform act in U.S. history, a government take over of health care. Wasn't as big as when for-profit health care insurance companies forced or pushed out of business non-profit health insurance companies. Oh maybe you didn't know about that one, remember blue cross & blue shield the last of the non-profit health insurance companies to go.  The way I see health care insurance companies are set up to make sure to keep costs low by finding ways of not paying claims, so the company making as much money as possible to keep shareholders happy and to keep stock value high. 
     Now tell me how can a company who's supposedly there to assist people with maintaining a healthy balance. But instead are making record profits, as the people they used to unsure are sick and dieing! And major hospitals are going broke, The health insurance companies will inform the hospital or provider it's approved a service as a covered service but as the bills and costs go up the insurance provider later finds and decides that the person may have lied or failed to fill out the application for health insurance completely even if the error didn't relate to what they were be treated for nor did the insurance company see it until after the first claim was filed. The insurance company keeps all the money the hospital tries to get payment from the person who now has had to file for bankruptcy so their family doesn't get stuck paying a bill, that the insurance company had said at first it would. Remember that with bankruptcy the debt isn't paid but forgiven so the hospital gets nothing but a piece of paper. So now the hospital has to go back and raise the price of all it's services to make up for what the insurance didn't pay after what at first said it would. Now the health insurance company has a reason the raise the cost of health insurance premiums, even though it was the cause of why the hospital needed to raise the price of all its services.
     The only choice for those who had paid for health insurance for most of their life. Is to be forced to try to get welfare or to get assistance from somewhere if their lucky. With all the years of paying your health insurance premiums what did you get? Not what you paid for that's for sure. Where did all that money go? Now don't you worry because it's safe and sound sitting in the profit margins of the health care insurance industry, or in the campaign funds of politicians that want to their words not mine (kill) the health care reform bill. Now that it's an act they want to repeal it. To me it seems that if your sick as I am, why don't you just hurry up and die already, now that may not be what they are really saying but that's what I'm hearing.
