I think it should be an honor and a privilege to serve at a VA hospital. There shouldn’t be a finer facility in the nation and people should be envious of the care our vets receive as opposed to being ashamed of it.
Correct me if I’m wrong, but doesn’t the government own an insurance company? How hard should it be for the government to come up with an affordable health care plan if we own an insurance company?
Everybody asks the same question; How come our politicians have free health care that covers everything for their entire life whether they’re in office or not and we don’t? I pay $700 a month to cover three people and I still have to pay co-pays and 20 percent after my deductable.
I have no idea how much a politician’s coverage costs, but if mine costs $700, theirs surely has to cost more considering it covers everything.
I would love to see a politician pay for half of his or her health care plan. A couple of months of that and I guarantee you there would be health care reform.
I mentioned a level playing field. Health care is just part of it. Education is the other part of a level playing field. It shouldn’t matter where you live, you should receive a great education.
If one school has something another school does not, the playing field is not equal. It’s not rocket science. Now there are many who will disagree and they will have their reasons.
There are many teachers alone who already believe students don’t need homework and there shouldn’t be evaluations or proficiency exams. Again, I disagree. Being in business, my superiors evaluate my performance twice a year. If I don’t pass their proficiency tests, I’m given the opportunity to improve or I’m asked to leave.
