I just came back from my doctor’s office, and not only did I get a good bill of health, he gave me an idea that could alleviate much of the financial burden that million of Americans are going to face with President Trump’s new health care proposal. I did not know that the average family physician only makes $150,000.00 dollars a year. So I asked him that maybe $500,000.00-$2,000.000.00 salary could easily satisfied most doctors, if we didn’t have to do all the computer updates and paying our hefty insurance premiums.I got me to some thinking.
Perhaps, the government should put primary physicians on their payroll at $250,000.00 a year, assume their insurance costs, and let these doctors keep the $100.00 that they will collect from these new patients. This would allow millions of Americans who cannot afford health care insurance, at least have an affordable option to be seen my a medical physician. Many of you might think that $100.00 is a lot of money, it’s a matter of taking care of one’s health, or buying a pair of Nike’s or going to a beauty salon. At least this will prevent people from getting sicker by putting off going to a Real doctor. Over all it will save the government $billions of dollars, and they can lift their heads to the rest of the world that they have doctors on their payroll for for the sole purpose of having a healthier America.
Tomorrow I will talk about an idea I borrowed from Senator Bernie Sanders, Medicare A for all Americans.
Is $100.00 a lot of money, if it can save your LIFE?
