The historical issue of health care in this country continues to be fraught with emotionalism, anger, and fear. It is very recent indeed that preventative health care options, like using herbs, have been considered so that wellness can be achieved without the direct intervention of those licensed by the American Medical Association.
I have spoken with lots of people over the past many years about their complaint: people who are illegal in this country or are on welfare get medical care when hard working people do not. The people voicing their opinions know that it is not a simple matter for them to show up at a doctor’s office or hospital to get medical attention because they, being employed, self-employed, under-employed, or with any form of asset, will be billed for all services rendered. They also know that is exactly why there are such high percentages of bankruptcies related to medical bills that are impossible for uninsured and even insured people to pay.
Those who do receive medical attention through some governmental, non-employed, circumstance have not and will not change. Rather than fighting the situation from that base and remaining in fear, it is high time that seeing the problem from the “them” perspective ends. The “them” stops as soon as everyone in this country becomes a “them” to get full health care benefits.
