Health care debate really about control

When you think about whether or not you want the insurance companies or the government making decisions about the health care you receive, you probably quickly answer neither. But unfortunately, that's not an option unless you can afford to pay for all your health choices out of pocket without carrying a health care insurance policy.

Since we're looking at what could be the demise of the national health care package now being held up in Congress, we'll likely continue to be solely under the control of the insurance companies. Knowing that they're going to be in control, insurance companies are flexing their muscles and making it harder for you to get the care you need.
