I’m not looking forward to going to work today and being exposed to all of the political banter surrounding the passage of the new Health Care Reform Plan.

I know a lot of smart people who are for the plan, and I know a lot of smart people who are against it.  I am not a smart person, but this tells me there will be both good and bad things coming.  I stay optimistic because bad things can be fixed, everybody likes good things, and I’m glad something is finally being done.  All I can do is hope history doesn’t repeat itself, and Washington doesn’t let this plan fall behind the scenes like they’ve done in the past.  I personally think that’s the only reason why a lot of these good ideas failed, is because they were neglected.

Only negative thought I have is, I can already see insurance companies spending time and resources to find loopholes in the plan to capitalize on.  I’m sure there are some, because no plan is perfect.  They say they’re concerned about the money being spent, but what this really means is that they’re concerned about the money they stand to lose.  After all, business is business, right?

I look forward to the day healthcare becomes what it should be, a service to the people… not a business to capitalize on.  Maybe I’m just idealistic… I prefer to say optimistic.
