I think that our current health care system needs improving. I think that most rational people would agree, whatever their views on any current plans, that there are some major issues that we, as a country, need to address. Granted we might not all agree on what those specific issues are.
Now most of the people I see posting in the comments section here seem to be fairly bright. I bet between us we can come up with a whole bunch of workable ideas to fix health care.
And unlike a majority of the country, which seems to think that major national issues should be discussed with a maximum of volume, enthusiasm and a near total disregard for any semblance of etiquette, we can probably do this in a civilized and rational manner.
So everybody, what’s wrong with our health care system, and what can we do to fix it?
Here are the ground rules:
1) Facts are good, proof is better. If you are going to portray a piece of information as a fact, be prepared to back it up from a credible and ideally first-hand source. Failure to do so may result in mocking.
2) It is okay to contest evidence that someone else submits.
3) Play nice. No name calling, insults, insinuations, are any other such nonsense. Michiel, I’m looking in your direction for some reason.
4) I may make more rules if you guys get all “retards in a candy factory” on me.
Other than that, nothing is off the table. Let’s fix this.
