I learned today why people are against healthcare reform. I spent a couple hours in a bar with a dentist and some professional wannabe's. The idea I got from them is that they don't want anyone to get health care for less than what they pay. I tried to bring up arguments that total health care expenses would go down but all they cared about was what the people that currently do not have health care would have to pay for health care.
It has nothing to do with there economics situation. It seems all they care about is making sure that those that are without have to pay. It is a vindictive attitude. It doesn't matter how I explain why these people are without health care, they paint all with a broad brush. Te fact that 70+% of all bankruptcies are caused by medical expenses means nothing. If we want true reform we need to explain too people what the true costs of the uninsured are.
