As many of you know I have been working to put together a series of articles about the health care reform we seem to have government ramming down our throat whether we like it or not. It is a tough series to do as there is so much to read and so many different ways I could tackle the subject. As some of the parts to the series I have decided I am going to research as best I can and answer questions about the reform ideas that are out there and what is actually in the bill. To that end, I need a little help from all of you over the next couple of days.
What I would like you all to do is to respond and let me know what you want me to research. What are the questions around this health care reform plan that are important. Some ideas I was thinking about included:
Is the system setting up a single payer system? What is a single payer system? Could a single payer system come as a result of this legislation?
Does the bill contain health care for illegal immigrants?
Does the bill include paying for abortions?
What is the deal with the end of life counseling and the “death panels”?
Will private companies be forced out?
Will we have any choices available under this bill? Can we choose out own doctors and courses of treatment?
Is tort reform the real answer?
These are just a few quick ideas I had as I thought about this today. So fire away! What questions do you want a real and researched answer on in terms of this health care reform? Nothing is off limits so let me know what I need to start researching better for the series. I am planning on starting to present the series next week.
