Being ill makes you think about health care! Why does the USA have the most unaffordable health care in the western world? I watched an interesting debate on television about the issue and the different sides of the issue were discussed. Canada has national health care. Mexico has national health care. (Our daughter Kawena was born there and we paid full cost for the entire birth - $120.00 us dollars . Our son Thomas was born in Oregon 3 years earlier - same care, same procedures - cost, $10,400.00 us dollars!!
You can find this nice little tv discussion at:
here is an interesting article from the ny times:
I would urge all of my readers to focus on this important issue and consider it from all sides!! What does it mean to you, do you have young children, is your income average, maybe most importantly - why is it cheaper to fly to Mexico to have dental work?
Thanks for reading.
ps. you will need to cut and paste the links as I am still learning how to to this feature!
