Massive Pig Summarizes The US Healthcare Debate

Here’s a video on the US healthcare debate which is pretty hot right now especially with that whole Joe Wilson debacle. I think the whole healthcare issue is pretty confusing but I definitely know something is wrong with ours. If you’ve ever had any kind of medical condition or had major medical work done you’ll know how retarded our healthcare system is. And don’t get me started on US health insurance companies. They are pretty rotten. It kind of scares me to think of me or someone I know requiring any kind of major medical attention and having to deal with the bills that come with it. And I *have* insurance! Imagine the millions out there who are working minimum wage or can’t find a job because of this horrible economy. It’s just such an unfortunate situation. I just wonder why Americans are so against universal healthcare when other major countries have done it and done it successfully. What are we so scared of? It almost seems like anything would be better than what we have now.

Excellent video. Thanks for dumbing it down. Health care is a right indeed.

Perhaps a third option. Health care is first a “Responsibility” as in it is each person’s responsibility to take care of their own health. Stop smoking, stop drinking, eat healthy and exercise 2-3 times a week then you won’t have to visit your doctor as often.

Well, if you don’t have healthcare insurance or don’t want to deal with the evil insurance companies, you can bargain and pay directly yourself for lower healthcare services with PriceDoc.com. It works for Priceline.com with airfares so why not with healthcare services?
