Heal Health Care Now: Doctors Speak Out for Reform

This is awesome... 450,000 doctors have joined with Brave New Films to make this video and come out with one voice to speak in unison for Health Care Reform. Is your Doctor on the list?

This is great and needs to go viral quickly. What better way to refute the lies the rethugs are putting out there? Come on everyone, post this to your site, pass it around in your emails, twitter it, FaceBook it, share it everywhere you can.

Here is the web site link... Heal Health Care Now.

i love this video. these are the people who should travel with obama to the townhalls. seniors need to hear from doctors that they won't have to switch medications, because their insurance companies suddenly decided to change their lists of the drugs they'll pay for. they need to hear that doctors will be able to spend more time with them, rather than on the phone fighting with insurance companies. they need to hear that they don't have to travel 20 miles to get a test, because the lab closest to where they live is not on the list of approved providers. they need to hear that they don't have to wait to see if the insurance company will approve a referral so that they can see a specialist. they need to hear that they can go to the specialist of their choice, instead of the one that's on their plan. they need to hear that it's okay for them to go to an emergency room in the middle of the night, without fear that they'll owe thousands of dollars, because they didn't get approval first. they need to hear that, if they get sick while they're visiting their grandkids in another state, they can see a doctor and not have to worry that he's out of network. they need to hear that their medical records will be accessible to their doctors and emergency doctors so that they don't have to worry about forgetting to tell them about a medication they're taking or a procedure or illness they had that might affect how they should be treated for new ailments.

obama is spending all his time refuting the bullshit from the rethugs, but he's not listing all the benefits people will actually get under a new and improved system.

It won't matter because the REPUBLICANS and BIG INSURANCE DON'T want reform. I'm beginning to think we are in the final stanzas of healthcare reform's swan song, sadly. I fucking hate the GOP.

Annette, as usual, an excellent post. Is there any way to get this to the president? Is there any way to get the organization to air the video on national teevee or to appear at some of the townhall events? I'd be willing to donate to any organization that could answer my questions. I'll check back later today to see if you have any insight into addressing my questions. Thanks.

Majii, you can go to their website and donate to them.. that's all I can tell you.. I am not sure what all they have planned.. I know this is a pretty new movement and they are just really starting. right under the video is the link Heal Health Care Now.. check with them and see what they have up at this time. I am not sure what they have yet.. I know when I last checked they were still in the process of getting some stuff together.

Thanks for your kind words as always you inspire me.

It’s funny we hear Republicans say that they do not want “faceless bureaucrats” making medical decisions but they have no problem with “private sector” “faceless bureaucrats” daily declining medical coverage and financially ruining good hard working people. And who says that the “private sector” is always right, do we forget failures like Long-Term Capital, WorldCom, Global Crossing, Enron, Tyco, AIG and Lehman Brothers. Of course the federal government will destroy heathcare by getting involved, Oh but wait, Medicare and Medicaid and our military men and women and the Senate and Congress get the best heathcare in the world, and oh, that’s right, its run by our federal government. I can understand why some may think that the federal government will fail, if you look at the past eight years as a current history, with failures like the financial meltdown and Katrina but the facts is they can and if we support them they will succeed.

How does shouting down to stop the conversation of the healthcare debate at town hall meetings, endears them to anyone. Especially when the organizations that are telling them where to go and what to do and say are Republicans political operatives, not real grassroots. How does shouting someone down or chasing them out like a lynch mob advanced the debate, it does not. So I think the American people will see through all of this and know, like the teabagger, the birthers, these lynch mobs types are just the same, people who have to resort to these tactics because they have no leadership to articulate what they real want. It’s easy to pickup a bus load of people who hate, and that’s all I been seeing, they hate and can’t debate. Too bad.
