The USA is currently ranked #37 in the world in health care by the WHO (World Health Organization). THAT is pathetic. We currently spend 40% more than France, who is ranked at #1 by the WHO. Yet we get so much LESS! Here's a great article I found on the NY Times. CLICK HERE. This is pretty right on... please take a few minutes to read it. I am still so blown away that some people don't think Americans should have access to BASIC, AFFORDABLE, health care... and I can't understand why everyone is so afraid of the public option. Without the public option, there will be no real reform. As long as companies are motivated by their bottom line to DECLINE people and DENY procedures, it's not going to work. There must be a public option available to people. Those who like their 'employer based' coverage can keep it. Those who don't have the OPTION of 'employer based' coverage -- and who are DECLINED by private companies, like me, can have a good, affordable public option. Sorry - but #37 just is NOT good enough. Here's a funny video :)
