The medical care that will go into effect in January 2014 granted a lot of american do not have medical coverage and can't afford to get sick. How would you deal with seeing a doctor if you was sick or got hurt as reported by CNN http://www.cnn.com/2013/03/08/opinion/weil-health-care/index.html?hpt=hp_t3

I do not live in America and frankly in respect of healthcare I am very pleased that I live here in the UK. According to the Republican party our health care is socialist! It is certainly free at the point of delivery and doctors and nurses worry about treating the patient as well as whatever it is that ails them. The CNN article puts it very nicely when it says that it is a disease management system that the US has rather than a healthcare system. Sometimes people really are more important than profit!

I would say that is a shame, blackrusty. Your own country should provide for you. I have heard of many people who retire in Mexico because they get better care yet there are many US citizens who are angry because mexicans go to work in the US.

Even with all of the recent changes, there are still a lot of uninsured or underinsured people, not to mention not being able to afford to take off of work.

it is very hard and I believe what we should be doing is following what Canada and parts of the united kingdom does and give free medical and dental to all the people that have a right to live in the united states and with that you would be able to buy meds at a lower cost if the government steps up on that as well

I don`t live in the US and I am glad that I live in my country as health care goes. I agree with the article that the government (in every country) should take care of keeping their citizens healthy and not only wait until they got ill. In my country, every mother to be is entitled to free milk that comes with a monthly checkup that is free if you don`t want to pay for you own doctor. Children are checked since they are born and medicine is given if needed. We also have help from the government when we get ill and the help is bigger for the people who have less.
