When you hear the politicians in Washington talk about the idea of "fixing" our health care, do you know what it could mean for you and your family?
- Government between you and your doctor--with government regulations "guiding" your assigned doctor's decisions.
- Medical treatments denied if you, or a loved one, are deemed too old or chronically ill.
- Long waits for life-saving treatments and even longer lines for basic medical procedures.
