This August 23, 2010, article on SFGATE.com talks about on medical professional’s learning experiences as they discovered that some of the problems that they were diagnosing were ones that could be corrected by the patient simply being able to find work, or having enough food to eat.  In essence the professional realized and even points out that sometimes spending money to help people with basic needs can help to decrease medical costs.

Facts about healthcare reform

  First off I know this is more of a national issue then it is a Pennsylvania specific issue, but it is something that once all is said and done and whatever the final plan is that is put into action, it is something that will effect each and every person in the country in one way or another how exactly that effect will occur I can’t say, but I can say that I’m really to a point where I want to hear facts and not hear about the latest town hall meeting that went haywire.  To me that isn’t news worth focusing on yes eveyone is entitled to their views, but can it be presented by the media in a way that is more like a healthy debate instead of focusing on what ammounts to people making fools of themselves on national TV by yelling and screaming and interrupting the person trying to present information rather then simply listening to what the person(s) have to say before flying off the handle and in some cases becoming physically aggressive towards the speaker?

Ok now that I’ve vented a little I will include a link I received from the whitehouse specifically the president’s office/staff this explains facts about what the President is trying to convery and some of the misinterpretations that are out there …. I hope to add more links as I find more that aren’t glorifying town hal brawls but this is a starting point …..

Keep in mind that just because I post something from the president or any other politician does not mean I agree 100% with what the person, party or office is saying it simply means I’m offering it as something I found to be more productive then the nightly News’  coverage of townhall brawls.

If you have a problem with information that is contained in any of the links, please respectfully contact the person, party … etc. represented by the site you don’t agree with.  As the saying goes you can catch more flies with honey then with vinegar.  Keep in mind that while politician do hold positions of power, they are there because we the American people gave them that power and that we are partially responsible for the political nature of our communitees, states and country because of our choices we make when we choose to vote or not vote for someone.
