Mini Rant on Healthcare – P.S.


I realize that some may have read my last post and read “Only rich people can afford Johnny Cockran, so ERJ, are you saying only rich people should get good healthcare?”. No that’s not what I am saying at all. I’m SAYING that only people who murder their wives should get health care. But seriously, I’m a firm believer in the saying “Failure to plan on your part, does not constitute an emergency on mine”.  If you choose to lead a lifestyle that is not conductive to good health, whether it’s being sedentary, smoking, eating fast food, I don’t think its fair or right for you to expect to have the full medical kitchen sink at your disposal, especially free of charge. You have to do you part, in what ever form that takes, if you want to reap the medical benefits.

I also firmly believe, that you are not allowed to complain unless you also have an idea to address the thing you are complaining about. Bring me solutions, don’t bring me problems. That said, I do have solution for our national health care problem, which works for the capitalists, the socialists, and is most beneficial to those of lower social economic status. Stay tuned.

About ER Jedi

I’m a resident doctor in Emergency Medicine and I’ve learned during the past few years that 1) I’ve had some pretty amazing experiences 2) I have a very bad short-term memory. So this blog is just a place for me to write about some of these experiences, from the ER, medical school, the wards and life in general. At least that way I’ll have some idea as to where I’ve been all this time. A scrap-book of sorts, a place to vent, organize some clinical tools and post a few good songs I’ve heard along the way.
