Mad as Hell

Finally someone is stepping up to force the maniacs in Washington to slow down, think things through and include everyone in the debate over health care reform.  Enter:  Mad as Hell Doctors.

Yes, doctors, mad as hell that the majority of the country has been left out in the cold while the privileged few run our system beyond ruin in a vain attempt to fix it.  Single payer?  I’m not sold on that idea, but my love of this idea lies here:

Let’s restart the effort and take Health Care legislation off the table until the Spring session of Congress. In the meantime, let’s use HR 676 as a starting point for a new health care conversation and empower MAHD physician-citizens to seek out the best minds from America’s vast resource of inspired health care professionals. We will then assemble these individuals into a working team that does not include anyone from the private Health Insurance Industry, the Pharmaceutical Industry, or anyone currently holding public office. Their assignment will be to craft a thoughtful, actionable single payer health care model, uniquely tailored for America, that the entire country can comprehend.

Who knows, maybe this is the method to shore up our failing system.  But what I love the most the drive for honest and open debate.  No back room deals inside committees, no one involved who has received money from the very places we’re trying to reform, no “death panels” (dumb-asses…read the fucking literature), the interests for once are left out in the cold with the goal of bringing everyone in, and leaving no one out.  Is that such a bad thing?  Really? I didn’t think so.

  1. I think I’d be for both. Let’s implement the public option as a bandaid so that the people who are suffering without health care are not just told to suck it up and wait and then have a longer term conversation to truly rethink the entire system and give it the overhaul it needs.
