President-elect Barack Obama was elected in large part for his push to overhaul health care.

Montana Sen. Max Baucus also supports this notion, as his plan to fix health care is said to be very similar to that of President-elect Barack Obama.

The only difference between the two is that Sen. Baucus wants to see health insurance mandated.

With the current economic crisis in the U.S.it may be difficult for big changes to come right away.

By 2010 though, there will surely be a new health care system.

    Interesting – while being prepped for surgery on the day of the election, i overheard a conversation between the nurses in the operating room. One nurse said she had a relative that lived in Canada who had a serious ailment and died while waiting for surgery that was scheduled MONTHS in the future. She also said that patients are assigned a doctor; patients are not allowed to choose, so if you get one that isn’t very competent, you do not have a choice of asking for another doctor. Is this the kind of care we will receive under “mandated” healthcare. It’s true that if mandated healthcare is put into effect that the politicians’ promises will have been kept, the change that has been so highly touted will have come about, but will it really be a change for the better? Will the elderly , the seriously ill, and the chronically ill receive the care they need? I really don’t want to be a pessimist, but if the politicians really want to change things for the better, get to the root of the problem and regulate the insurance companies and the pharmaceutical companies.
