Sorry this is a day late, but I was working nights...
a doctor and writer on Health Care issues, I will simply state re:
today's supreme court decision, the health care reform bill passed by
congress and upheld today, while not perfect and definitely in need of
tweeking and likely further legislation, has already led to health care
coverage for my ER patients, including some last night who were sweating
the decision for fear they would go back to the ranks of the uninsured.
Nothing in this world is more frightening than the indignity of being
sick and being unable to obtain proper care. Nothing is more frustrating
to me than telling a person with a non emergent but potentially deadly
illness that there is nothing I can do for you. Any steps that give
people back some of their dignity, and relieve an uncertain and morbid
future is a step forward in the right direction.
