Our rotten broken healthcare system...
Well, a few weeks ago I broke up a real fight (note to self - stop that!) and may have injured things again. Well, the deterioration in our lousy healthcare system since a few years ago tells me that we have to tear it down and get the government in to make things right!
This time I contacted my doctor on Wednesday afternoon but could not get in to see him (different doc) until Thursday afternoon! I mean, WTF, right? And he said he thought it was only a rotator cuff strain and asked me which I would prefer, some physical therapy to see if things get better, or an MRI? I mean, really! How the hell do I know what is best for me? Ed Shultz on MSCNBCN knows that we are all too friggin' stupid to decide anything for ourselves. The doc needs to tell me what I have to do. He's the doc, right? I don't know skwat about docterin' stuff. So, anyhow, I mull it over, and called for an MRI yesterday morning (Thursday,) and I can't even get in until Monday afternoon! Two whole working days! Can you believe it? Jeez, that is twice as long a wait as I had before!
See, if it was government run, they'd have taken me right away, and it would be for FREE! Now, with this bum system, I might have to pay a co-pay of $30 or something.
So, viva Obamacare! Bring it!
