"real" motive and goal behind the proposed healthcare reform - especially
since it will continue to leave 80% of the current uninsured without health
I cannot help but think if we randomly choose a small handful of everyday,
average citizens, stuck them in a room and told them to come up with a plan
to improve healthcare in the United States, they would emerge from the room
within a week's time with a practical plan that could work for all Americans
without giving the government additional control over our lives.
The obvious reason for their presumed success would be their goal to come up
with a healthcare system for the benefits of all citizens - not for the
benefit of a given political party's efforts growth for power and control.
"In addition, this bill does not do enough to address the urgent need for
more providers in rural communities. My hometown of Napoleonville only has
one doctor still practicing, and when he retires, I don't know that we will
find anyone to take his place. For rural America to survive and stay
healthy, we must reverse this trend through incentives for health care
providers to serve these communities."

small towns make health care more affordable?
