    everything she told me, I might jeopardize her job.

    Because some of this is public knowledge, I can say there will be a big shift in the type of personnel providing most of the care...and access to physicians will be limited. It's no secret that insurance companies are paying doctors to "save" money by rewarding them for limiting the services they prescribe. (That is the reason that the bulk of medical lawsuits have shifted from 'medical malfeasance' to 'failure to treat'...just imagine that problem on steroids.)

    And how we access emergency care will be different; radically different in some cases.

    The nursing field will suffer -- big time. In fact, some healthcare degrees will be almost worthless in the near future.

    I can't mention the really egregious changes, but maybe someone on this site is in a position to build on what I've started (without jeopardizing their career).

    I will add this: many of the sincere, dedicated workers in the healthcare industry are devastated by what is happening...and they're very angry. And I won't even mention what is already happening to elderly people living in 24 hour care is a nightmare.

    We desperately need single payer healthcare...

      As long as you don't post either your real name or her real name, she won't get in trouble.

      Or do you think someone is "monitoring" your comments?

      I miss Speaker Pelosi :^(
