So, what’s the deal with healthcare?

No matter where you look, you can’t seem to escape this topic. For women, healthcare reform can be especially important, so getting the facts is a must. This article discusses some of the new legislation and how it can impact women. The article is pretty informative and gets past all the partisan propaganda. This article is pretty informative especially for issues important to women; however do have an issue with the logic in the final paragraph where the author writes:

“Even if health reform sails through Congress and onto President Obama’s desk, none of these new programs is likely to be available until 2013. By then, of course, Congress will have had dozens more chances to tinker with the plan. And you’ll have had dozens of more chances to pay for skyrocketing health care costs.”

This is a skewed line of thinking. In comparison to other industrialized nations, the U.S. spends much more for health care and covers less of the population. So we are already paying skyrocketing healthcare costs. Maybe the bureaucrats can do a better job at providing healthcare than private companies that are out to turn a profit.
