The Continuing Health Care Battle

Filed under: Uncategorized — toryjohnson30 @ 6:24 am

The battle over health care reform is still going on in Washington, as the Senate and House of Representatives are still debating over many issues. According to an article in the New England Journal of Medicine (http://healthcarereform.nejm.org/?p=3092&query=home) the main issue that has stalled health car reform is economic, in the fact that U.S. might not be able to control costs. Since this financial issue has come up and is over debate constantly, it continues to stall the production of health care reform which has been sitting in congress for some time already now. When I saw this part of the article I thought to myself, why can’t we just control costs now and then work to reform the rest of health care later. But in the article, it addresses the inability of just trying to fix cost on its own without worrying about expanding coverage. “it is not feasible to tackle costs without tackling coverage.” So, this makes me worry even more as it will take congress even more time to sort out all the problems at once because there isn’t time to fix one part and then later go back and fix the other. I believe in our congress’s ability to eventually come up with a bill that will not only be financially stable but able to provide adequate health reform.
