As a people, as a Nation, in one of the most medically advanced countries in the world; there is absolutely no reason so many of our citizens go without health and dental care.
Except for Greed. Greed has overshadowed, no; completely absorbed any semblance of responsibility and compassion for the sick, chronically ill and elderly and turned the care of our loved ones and ourselves into a multi-trillion dollar business with CEO’s and CFO’s, financial analysts, consulting firms, sponsored pharmaceutical research and pill mongering.
Yachts, limousines, mansions and vacation resorts built on outrageous prices propagated by greedy insurance companies; the middle man, the barterer, the auctioneers of our health care. No matter what the doctor says you need, when the insurance company says no go; we go without the prescribed medication while they go to Bermuda.
It’s time we insist on quality health, dental, vision, and hearing care. This country, these innovations were developed out of need. We are in need again and if we as a people, do not demand regulating our insurance and pharmaceutical companies, the only losers will be us. Insist on it!
