ObamaCare has a few good points in theory, but it is totally unrealistic at this point. The U.S. debt now exceeds its GDP, which basically means we are borrowing money in order to pay our bills. How are we expected to now pay for ObamaCare on top of the huge debt the Obama administration has already run up through ARRA? (Which dramatically increased our debt and sent a large portion of the money overseas.) We need to wake up and face the realities of our situation. We need to say no to unnecessary procedures, take ownership of our health by eating healthy foods, exercising, getting enough sleep, and keeping stress in check. We need to cut the waste in government, lower the national debt, and hold healthcare organizations to a higher standard of compassionate care, while keeping the malpractice vultures in check. Healthcare has become like any other market - buyer beware. Healthcare consumers need to educate themselves, ask pertinent questions, and refuse tests and procedures they feel are not needed. Don't be afraid to question your doctor and have him/her explain their intentions. It's your body, your health, your money.
