Health Care Reform.

We need to take back health care from the insurance and pharmaceutical industry. I have worked in health care for over ten years now and time after time I have witnessed people going bankrupt because their private health care failed to provide the coverage promised or they just could not afford adequate coverage.
I have seen pharmaceutical marketers wine and dine doctors and other health care providers, and we have all seen their expensive television adds. They do little in research, but will claim that is the reason for their inflated prices.
We need a public option, but we also need much better and fair regulation, but if we continue to allow these corporations to write the laws and regulate themselves, then this is only going to get worse

In Poll, Wide Support for Government-Run Health

at The New York Times

Americans overwhelmingly support substantial changes to the health care system and are strongly behind one of the most contentious proposals Congress is considering, a government-run insurance plan to compete with private insurers, according to the latest New York Times/CBS News poll.
