Health care winners

Now that the bill has become law just who are the winners in health care reform? The insurance companies and here is why. They are going to get new policy holders, around 47 million. The premiums charged are not going to be controlled, double digit increases are here to stay. They have to cover pre-existing conditions but at a cost of up to 3 times the standard plan.

The drug companies also do ok. There is not going to any type of control on prices. The only thing that could have made this better would have been for a ban on Americans getting drugs from countries with socialized medicine. I think that the drug companies should have held out for this. The American people don't believe in socialism so the government should do everything that it can to protect the people from these socialized countries.

The doctors also do ok for the same reasons as the drug companies. The same warning applies for patients who travel abroad for care. The government needs to put a stop to medical tourism.
