Health care bill - Hands up


The Americans have passed the health care bill. They are sick.

What happens to the rest of the world who always copy the Americans in the future?

Is there a lesson for us. Health care will be costly.

It is a large bill of nearly 2000 pages and in a legal lingo, we cant even read a spiritual book that large or a novel that big with ease, to understand.

Do the grass root level doctors have a choice, or do they have to play the game as adviced by the associations?

The names all seem political and no doctors are in the making of the bill, or are they at the background.

The world is getting smaller these days, what is happening in one place , is bound to affect the rest of us in distant places.

We rural Indians don’t have medical insurance, we pick a doctor, a system and get what we can, may not be the best in the world, but it is the world of the best we can afford.

I think public awareness will grow, to stay fit in body and mind, to avoid sickness and health care , but pay taxes or its fines to stay in the land of the free and the comforts it offers.
