Health is a primary topic and we have to more care of health and health insurance.


Paul Krugman's column today discusses the turn to the right and the acceptance by many of turning a cold shoulder to those in need. Sure some make a willful choice not to have health insurance and therefore predictable health care but many don't have a choice and there is a new mood of coldness towards those millions.

From Krugman's column:

And what this means is that modern conservatism is actually a deeply radical movement, one that is hostile to the kind of society we’ve had for the past three generations — that is, a society that, acting through the government, tries to mitigate some of the “common hazards of life” through such programs as Social Security, unemployment insurance, Medicare and Medicaid.

Are voters ready to embrace such a radical rejection of the kind of America we’ve all grown up in? I guess we’ll find out next year.


Having candidates on the national stage espouse "I've got mine and to hell with you" philosophy legitimatizes it for millions but again and again we see that millions can be wrong. Yeah, I get to define "wrong". The far right has been defining right and wrong for years - time the rest of us assert that right also.

Did Krugman mention the Ron Paul staffer? I guess one of Ron Paul's staffers and one of his key people and get this about 30 years of age. Had a pre-existing medication condition and could not get health care insurance. He came down very sick and was in the hospital for a few weeks and died.
His medical bill was $150K. Ron Paul and some others came up with $50K of it but could not come up with the other $100K. So there is no money to pay it!
Remember at the debate the question for Ron Paul and his answer that churches and friends could pay for medical things like that.
Also remember a couple of people yelling out "Let him die" of course they were not talking about the staff member because no one knew about it at the point.
Of course, I guess, under Obama care they guy could have got medical insurance.


Health insurances should be prioritized by the government. many people need it.
