The President pays a visit......


The President visited Walter Reed health center and apologized for the conditions of the center today. The report said it was the first time he had personally visited the center since the scandal of conditions there broke. The president and the firs lady did visit the Walter Reed Army Medical Center in December, but I am sure the President was shielded from the conditions of the center that were reviled by the Washington Post.

I can't contain my anger. The president apologizing for the treatment of America's service men makes me angry WHY? It's the president's fault that their over there! So after a month of charges, resignations, and special reports on wounded troops , he comes and says I am sorry. Sorry for what! For having them in Iraq where Americans are targeted daily, guarding oil? I can't began to understand our President. But I want to support our troops they are our most distinguished citizens in my opinion, and I hope we bring them home soon.

Hillary outlines her plan for health care very vaguely in this web cast. I appreciate her approach but I don't like the fact she gives us no strategy on how she is going to present a plan for universal health care. Didn't she and Bill try before without success? I need facts to make me believe she can do it this time.

Protecting Our Seniors

Aged, Frail and Denied Care by Their Insurers - New York Times

The New York Times recently did a piece highlighting the problems with insurers paying the claims of their for the terminal ill patients. According to this article insurers will do everything including sending incorrect forms to patients, to deny their claims. According to the article:

“The bottom line is that insurance companies make money when they don’t pay claims,” said Mary Beth Senkewicz, who resigned last year as a senior executive at the National Association of Insurance Commissioners. “They’ll do anything to avoid paying, because if they wait long enough, they know the policyholders will die.”

This article highlights the reason insurance companies need to be regulated. Universal Health care would allow people to choose insurance plans that may protect them from this type of abuse.
