As you look upon the field of never, ever ending Rugosa Roses here at Dowses Beach in Osterville, you may feel abundant, as if the world just gave you a flower. Maybe, flowers aren’t your thing, maybe health is…as we all sat and listened to the pundits speak of what they thought an “overhauled” healthcare system might look like, let’s look at the facts. As an ex-executive of the largest brokerage firm in the world, Marsh, Inc. out of New York, I do have a wealth of knowledge pertaining to this sordid matter that, whether you like it or not, affects every person living in this country. The real problem is motivation. Why would the lawmakers change their tune for morality’s sake, when the snake oil lobbies of the private insurance industry consistently tell them lies that they take down with a grain of brainwashing fluid, along with a steady diet of talking points like, “a single payer system would get in the way of you and your doctor,” when the truth is the insurance companies have always been in between you and your doctor with the long laundry list of “pre-existing” conditions that they simply won’t pay for…if you don’t believe that, ask your insurance carrier for a list of them, in writing, the entire list, and you will KNOW THE TRUTH. The insurance industry is not interested in health care, just care for profit. If they are not making a profit, do you honestly believe they are interested in your health, let alone the care for what ails you? Words like “preventive care” are thrown about like kites on the wind, ever changing direction and leaving one with the sinking feeling that no one is really in charge and with 1 out of every 6 dollars being spent on health care moving quickly to 1 out of every 3 dollars if nothing is done during Obama’s first term, the cry out from the American people will grow louder…especially as the baby boomers begin to retire in the next 5 years. Wealth does not matter if you don’t have your health. My prayer is simple, wake up America! Write your congressman or woman, write your senator and ask him or her what, exactly, their stand is on this critical issue. A country is only as strong as it’s citizens. Are we really going to let some bully in Washington line his pockets on the backs of hard working American moms and dads, sisters and brothers, neighbors and colleagues? No, we are not. Have a great Monday. Peace M
