Time for Change

Ever so slowly the fact that we need to change our current health care system is beginning to be accepted in America. Costs have doubled in the last ten years and we simply cannot afford to wait and have them double again in the next ten years.

To put the issue in a more personal perspective, the American Journal of Medicine said in its June issue that medical debt was a factor in 62% of personal bankruptcies nationally and that 75% of those people had health insurance. Beginning to get the picture? Personally, and as a nation, we can't afford the current medical system.

We may disagree on what form the change needs to take, but hopefully we can quickly agree that change needs to happen NOW.
