I have been on vacation & I'm trying to catch up.  My Real Estate Business has grown so much this year.  I just added three new assistants.  Sorry for my AR absence; but will be back soon.

This video is so simple to understand and so extraordinary; I just had to share it with you.  It's less than two minutes long and it says so much.  Please watch it and let me know what you think of it!

I miss you my dear friends!

I think the cartton video was great. I think we need health care reform in a bad way. I just have one simple little problem with it that Washington hasn't managed to explain to us yet which is how are we going to pay for it. If only they would come up with an answer to that, I think we'd have a done deal. I hope they figure it out pretty soon, too many people are going without and it's a darn shame.

Mirela - While the cute video refers to those government services we receive that provide good value--police, fire, and water--those are local government services and are responsible to the local populace who can drive to the local office and complain about poor service.  The bureaucracy in DC is far from a good example of an efficient provider of services.

And the reference to Medicare as being efficiently run--Medicare currently has 38 trillions dollars in unfunded liabilities that it won't be able to pay. It's technically bankrupt.  And to think we can just add millions more to the program and either not have to ration services or to have huge tax increases is just to ignore the facts.

Health care can definitely use some reforming, but, just as the opposition has focused upon the negative aspects, proponents have painted a picture that is impossible to realize. Ultimately I have little confidence that our lawmakers will produce anything meaningful for those who actually need help.

I too saw this video today and posted it to my Facebook page.  As the wife of a physician I can truly attest to how much health care reform is needed in our country!  When physicians cannot get the tests their patients need because of costs (one time my husband had to call a special meeting to order band aids that wouldn't hurt young children w/heart aids.  Seriously), and often have to spend time on the telephone begging the insurers to allow the needed test....while at the same time hearing about the HUGE bonuses insurance types receive (because of all the money they saved their company by denying medical care) makes me sick.  No pun intended.

Glad you are so busy that you need three assistants....Good for you!  Thanks for posting, I did think the cartoon was very creative..., but I do agree with John, that police and fire are Locally run and not the best example or analogy. 

Also, they left out the post office which is a Federal service and out of money....yikes, what is the best answer?

Thank you Mirela for the video and welcome back, happy to know that you are so busy that you can create 3 jobs.! I like the video and I think it explains very clearly why we need to pay attention to the Health Insurance Reform going through congress right now,

 I don't believe we all understand how insurance companies work, they bottom line is making more and more money, sometimes sacrificing lives to achieve their goals. Why aren't we more involved in this process?
