Upcoming Article: Where these 14 Beliefs are Misplaced.  I don’t need much help on this one, but if you’d like to weigh in, it’s being discussed here (click to follow link).

  1. We believe there are many inefficiencies in the existing system that waste money and by cleaning this up the government can use the savings to pay for a new health care system – that all Americans can be proud to be a part of.
  2. We believe more government in our lives is ok. Government is already a big part of our lives and continues to grow anyway and it should be in our lives on an issue as important as health care.
  3. We believe government and those in power have our best interests in mind and will not misuse their power when accessing the personal, private health and financial information of our family – there will be safeguards.
  4. We believe under the new system, health care decisions will be made fairly, handled with compassion and that complaints will be handled promptly – something that people have had problems with under the existing system.
  5. We believe the existing health care system is broken because all people don’t have access to the best care because they can’t afford it – all people deserve the best care in this great country.
  6. We believe the existing health care system is broken because all people don’t have insurance.
  7. We believe insurance companies mistreat their customers regarding the cost of insurance, exclusion of existing conditions, denial of claims and in other ways all in the name of making a profit.
  8. We believe insurance companies are middlemen in the existing system who bring little to the table and if they go out of business, they had a good ride while it lasted.
  9. We believe doctors and other health care providers may have to take a pay cut but they can afford it and most of them became doctors and providers to help people.
  10. We believe the existing health care system is broken because of lawsuits, lawyers and drug company profits, but those are separate issues that can be fixed later.
  11. We believe its ok that the one that oversees the government plan also oversees, regulates and can sanction private plans, this job will be done fairly.
  12. We believe in spite of the government’s track record running other programs that this program will be different and well run, the American people will demand it.
  13. We believe that yes certain strategies are being used on the public to get this health care bill through and there are special interests involved behind the scenes but so what, that’s just part of the way things are done, both sides do it.
  14. We believe that ANY health care reform bill passed will be a victory for the American people and once the public learns how good it is for them, we can change and expand it.
