Charles On... Universal healthcare for all Americans


For those of you who haven't heard, I was recently hospitalized to have surgery on my hand.  It wasn't too serious of a deal, but it wasn't exactly a fun experience either.

That's why I'm writing this special weekend edition of Charles On.

After a visit to my regular doctor ended up with orders to go to the hospital, I landed a nearly week-long visit at Bellvue in New York City. 

A fine hospital that dealt with my hostility, and as it turns out - Bellevue offers discounted health care to New Yorkers who aren't insured.

Luckily, we have that option as New Yorkers.  Unfortunately, many Americans do not have access to any resources and are dying of things that might be referred to as "silly."  With the right medications, simple problems could be solved.  The problem is that without health insurance, these Americans find themselves in pain, getting sicker and many dying a slow death without any way out.  They're basically held captive to their illness simply because they can't afford to be healthy.

This must stop!

I'm not 100% sure that President Barack Obama has it exactly right with his health care plan, but it is definitely a start.  I can't imagine what it would be like to imagine paying $2,500 a day for the accommodations and care that I received from Bellevue.  Someone without health care (or a rare clinic like Bellevue) would go in debt to pay those types of fees.  Some even have to chose whether they eat or get medical care.  It is sad, really.

Whether this health bill is perfect or not, it must be passed we.  We need the option for every American to have health coverage.  How can we call ourselves the land of the free if we don't?

Oh, and the one thing I miss about being Bellevue... being woken up by gorgeous doctors every morning and a few times throughout the day.  The docs there are not only great medical professionals, but most of them could walk right on to the run way.  It's actually the best part about the facility (after the reduced heath care clinic, of course).


Thanks for updating the status on Medical Insurance industry today. But there Low cost medical coverage on group, family, or individual available at http://bit.ly/68ShhE

I love the link Pillpot, but that isn't applicable to everyone or affordable for everyone especially smaller states
