Hi all, I know a few of you are still off on break and maybe caught Oprah. I watched some this morning and then I had to go to the Doctor (three actually). So I am catching the PM rerun in Chicago right now. Not sure when the original airdate was. Michael Moore is on- I know many people don't agree with him and he has the ability to skew things etc- I'm pretty sure Sicko made me cry (I know I saw it a long time ago). The things about the insurance company going against what doctors say is ludacris. I had a problem a few years back where I didn't realize (first year teacher mistake) I had to pre-approve all tests/scans (but later found out surgery doesn't have to be preapproved - go figure) - anyway I fought them and they paid 50% of what they were supposed to. I was like umm I didn't decided to wake up this morning and think YUM. I'd like to drink barium and have radioactive dye go through my body. They also interviewed those from Canada and England about their systems that did show some of the flaws of going the way they do. The question posed is: Do you fundamentally believe that a child of a gas station attendant and the CEO of a major company deserve the same health care? I do, however I know many in our country do not. We spend lots of money wastelesly in this country. I'm sure we could fund education and health care if we underfunded some of the things we over fund.
