HEALTH: Let docs work for free

| April 14, 2010 10:00 PM

This letter is in response to Dr. Ray Newcombe’s letter in which he states the health bill “is long overdue”.  He does have a great idea when he says “insurance companies should all be nonprofit”.  Wouldn’t health care be even better and more affordable if hospitals, doctors, and nurses would be nonprofit also? Then just as the doctor says “all money collected is used for providing care and covering overhead”.

After all, doctors and nurses don’t really need to make all that money do they?  Doctors don’t really need a nice house overlooking the lake do they? They could all volunteer their time for the health and well being of the people. Wow what great peace of mind that would be. Maybe since Dr. Newcombe thinks this is the way to go, he should lead the way.

All this nonprofit talk makes me want to go out and start a business, employ people, and pay even more taxes......for nonprofit of course. USSR here we come (United States Socialist Republic).
