A New Year

New Year's Day 2009

My family and friends are hoping for a better 2009 than the last few years. Our aging bodies are breaking down too quick to fix, and I'm afraid the pieces to fix us are in short supply.

I am looking forward to seeing what the new administration has in store for us with respects to healthcare reform. If my family and friends are any indication, most middle class Americans are just one illness away from disaster.

Other countries provide care for their citizens without the maze of regulations and beauracratic barriers we are so good at. How much cost is added to healthcare just to support governmental regulations that were intended to reduce cost? As someone once told me, who's drivin' the bus??
