I am a 60 yearold retired nurse, who worked in the public health sector for 30 years. I have seen cuts by the government over and over to programs for those who cannot do anything for themselves- the physically and mentally challenged, children on Medicaid, and adults on Medicare. This is why I do not want the government messing with my health care. I am not for health care reform for everyone. If you are able to work, you should work. You show be able to buy insurance at an affordable rate. I am concerned about preexisting clauses for those who lose jobs, who are on unemployment, who have babies born with conditions that are not covered at birth because all of a sudden they have a preexisting condition. I feel reform should be for tort reform, to address reasons for preexisting(was it by choice to start your own business), to put caps on frivolous law suits so that lawyers do not get rich off the backs of others emotional or physical needs( look at way rewards are issued to families). If the government cannot manage to run the Medicaid and Medicare system without constant cutting what will the results be to us all if they take over it all???
