Why would I want cheaper health care if I have to wait months on end to receive it?
I'd rather pay a little more and have access to my doctors and hospitals whenever I choose as I do now. That's a no-brainer for me.
Instead of giving billions of dollars to Global AIDS foundations, why doesn't our government start taking care of their own, damn it???
In his State of the Union address earlier this week, GW proposed allocating $30 BILLION dollars over the next 5 years for HIV/AIDS treatment/research. How about putting a fraction of that money towards getting the word out there that the best weapon against HIV/AIDS is practicing safe sex????
It's really not rocket science. Take the large balance of those billions and come up with a health insurance plan that would make insurance affordable to the 47+ million Americans who simply can't afford it. There should be NO American without health insurance. Not one.
