Questions About National Healthcareer Association

Why do democrats believe that national healthcare will be any different than other...?

...horrendously inefficient, costly programs? AmTrak (going bankrupt for decades), the US Postal Service (going bankrupt for decades), the VA Hospital system (going bankrupt for decades), the Defense Department (remember the $600 toilets lids?), motor vehicle departments where you can spend half a day waiting and – this is my favorite example – our public “education” system which turns out students who rank near the bottom: -12/7/07 Washington Post: “The scores from the 2006 Program for International Student Assessment showed that U.S. 15-year-olds trailed their peers from many industrialized countries. The average science score of U.S. students lagged behind those in 16 of 30 countries in the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, a Paris-based group that represents the world's richest countries. The U.S. students were further behind in math, trailing counterparts in 23 countries.” -3/9/11 AP: An estimated 82 percent of U.S. schools could be labeled as "failing" unde

What do you think Arizona's immigration law reflects years of anger?

PHOENIX — As the days tick down until the Arizona immigration law takes effect, the state stands as a monument to the anger over illegal immigration that is present in so many places. The anger has been simmering for years, and erupted into a full-blown fury with the murder of a prominent rancher on the border earlier this year. The killing became a powerful rallying cry for immigration reform and the sweeping new law set to take effect Thursday, barring any last-minute legal action. But it does not tell the whole story about how Arizona got to this point. Turn on the evening news in Arizona and some report reflecting the state's battle with illegal immigration will likely flash across the screen. A drop house crammed with illegal border-crossers smack in the middle of a suburban neighborhood. Traffic patrols and workplace raids that net the arrest of dozens of illegal immigrants, often in heavily Hispanic communities. Politicians speaking venomously about border violence and the l

Is the following excerpt about Canadian healthcare accurate?

'As a neighboring country, the U.S. health system is often compared to Canada’s. While the country’s system is not as highly rated as many in Europe, it still produces better results than the United States, according to research by the Commonwealth Fund and others. On the measure of average life expectancy, Canadians live 80.2 years compared to 77.8 years in the United States. Access to care is also not a problem. “Canada has a couple of things that clearly are better than the U.S.,” says Dr. Robert Ouellet, president of the Canadian Medical Association. “It has coverage for the entire population.” Contrary to popular understanding, Canada has a single-payer rather than a federal system. The government pays for all of the care from a single fund, but uses private doctors to administer care. Patients can choose where, and from whom, they get their care. Each province and territory has differences in their respective systems, but the national government oversees and regulates each.

Are jobs in healthcare readily available in Florida?

I recently lost my job in Michigan as a receptionist in a doctors office. My unemployment will not cover my expenses, as I'll be making about half what I used to when I worked, which wasn't that much to start. I also have experience working in a chiropractic office as a chiropractic assistant, and very much enjoyed that position. The job market here in Michigan is nonexistent, we lead the nation in unemployment. I have the opportunity to rent my daughters fully furnished condo in Florida for $425.00 a month, which will all include utilities (heat,air, cable, electric, trash) as well. I've heard there are many clinics, doctors offices and chiropractors in Florida and I'm thinking that might be my best move, but I'm afraid of selling off everything I own here (I rent a house here, too, but my monthly expenses outside of my rent are high) and moving down there, only to find out I can't find work there, either. Any advice??? Does anyone know how abundant jobs are in the health ca

How does this sort of a country sound to you?

Abortion, gay marriage, and stem cell research are all legal. In addition to the Armed Forces, there is a national militia system(similar to switzerland's) where all able-bodied men and women are required to serve in the armed forces for 3 years after high school, with non-combatant roles available for the pacifists. Every man and woman keeps his or her service weapon at home, and receives it as a gesture of gratitude for service after leaving. After the military, 4 years of college are free, with free graduate school for those who want to become teachers or work in the medical profession. The tax code is completely abolished; there is one flat tax rate of 25% for everyone, no exceptions. Those making money below the poverty line are tax-exempt. The money is solidly backed by gold, silver, and precious metals. If there is no bullion on hand for backing, no money is printed. As such, no gold or silver bullion is sold to citizens. Protectionist trade policies are in place. Having op

Explain why I should vote for Obama.

Talk to me about Barack Obama. In particular, explain why I should vote for him. I am a registered, genuinely undecided voter in a swing state. If you are an Obama supporter and want to have an effect on the election, this is the post for you to read and answer. Generally, I consider the people I associate with to be very intelligent. I work in a nerdy profession and graduated from good university, and I do my best to hang out with the smartest people I know. So, if there is an overwhelming consensus among these people on any topic, I would like to think that I would agree with it. Talking to these people, one would get the impression that it is so blatantly obvious that Barack Obama is the right man for the presidency that only a complete idiot would think otherwise. This is what disturbs me deeply: It's not that obvious to me! My own approval rating for George W. Bush is very low, though perhaps not for all of the same reasons as a typical Obama v

A diagnosis of prostate cancer is scary enough. But just as scary is that nobody can tell a man the best way to treat it. This month, the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality issued a sweeping review of prostate cancer treatments, including surgical removal, radiation, hormone therapy and so-called watchful waiting, which involves careful monitoring but no active treatment until the cancer shows signs of growing. Because none of these treatments emerged as superior, the agency came to the troubling conclusion that it could not recommend one over the others. “Having been involved in this area for a long time, it was not shocking, but it is disappointing,” said Dr. Timothy J. Wilt, lead researcher on the report, from the Minneapolis Veterans Affairs Center for Chronic Disease Outcomes Research. “Information is really lacking to determine whether over all one treatment is more effective and preferred.” Prostate cancer is the single most common cancer in the United States and the

Why would Obama and the Dems be pushing to end the Bush tax cuts knowing that it will hurt the economy?

Capital gains goes up limiting capital to small businesses, dividends get taxed at a higher rate hurting retirees, maybe causing companies to stop paying dividends, taxing 50% of the nations small business income at a MUCH higher rate. Which the small business association said they wouldn't be hiring for the next 4 years because of the additional costs of the healthcare bill already. The CBO said it was a terrible idea, yet they keep pushing class warfare instead of doing the right thing by extending them for 2 years. Why?

Anybody know some things about Hillary???????

Oh wait..never mind. She wasn't born into money and political influence. She came from middle class Illinois, and worked her way up -graduating from Yale Law School during a time when women were at an educational disadvantage. As a law student, Hillary represented foster children and parents in family court and worked on some of the earliest studies creating legal standards for identifying and protecting abused children. Following graduation, she became a staff attorney for the Children's Defense Fund when she could have taken a job with a large law firm making much more money. After serving as only one of two women lawyers on the staff of the House Judiciary Committee considering the impeachment of Richard Nixon, Hillary chose not to pursue offers from major law firms. Her daughter Chelsea was born in 1980 but pregnancy and raising a well balanced daughter did not thwart her tireless work for families and children.

Do you support higher taxes to pay for the bigger government promised by ObamaCare?

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), commonly called ObamaCare or the Affordable Care Act (ACA), is a United States federal statute signed into law by President Barack Obama on March 23, 2010. Together with the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act, it represents the most significant regulatory overhaul of the country's healthcare system since the passage of Medicare and Medicaid in 1965. The ACA aims to increase the quality and affordability of health insurance, lower the uninsured rate by expanding public and private insurance coverage, and reduce the costs of health care for individuals and the government. It provides a number of mechanisms—including mandates, subsidies, and insurance exchanges—to increase coverage and affordability. The law also requires insurance companies to cover all applicants within new minimum standards and offer the same rates regardless of pre-existing conditions or sex. Additional reforms aim to reduce costs and improve healthcar
