Giving Up Freedoms for Health Care

Excellent article this morning on Yahoo! (gasp!) about the freedoms we - as Americans - will lose if this Death and Tax bill passes. Link

Here's a quick summary of freedoms that go down the drain -

#1 - Freedom to choose what's in your plan
#2 - Freedom to be rewarded for healthy living, or pay your real costs
#3 - Freedom to choose high-deductible coverage
#4 - Freedom to keep your existing plan ***!!!!!****!!!!
#5 - Freedom to choose your doctors

This is serious people. It WILL affect you...badly.

It's going to be bad. Not to mention that a lot of doctors might switch occupations because they will be paid less. If it has Obama's stamp of approval, it will be bad.

Agree with Britt. Dave and I have been stressing about this subject for years. Thankfully we are not in the medical field anymore. If we still were, we would not only be affected with our health care but our profession. They are going to have to find a way to reimburse doctors for their outrageous tuition while only being paid 100K or less. Not to mention their enormous malpractice insurance payments. Two thumbs WAY DOWN on socialized medicine! No one will be happy with this.
