She’s down with Edwards

The Progressive Pulse’s Andrea Verykoukis takes note of this John Edwards quote:

“Dealing with the health care crisis is about more than just about coverage. Our health care system is entirely too expensive. We put more money into health care than any country in the industrialized world and we get one of the worst products out in the other end.”

She thinks he’s smart for saying that, too. It also strikes me as ironic coming from a man whose wife is fighting cancer. Does Edwards think she’s getting one of the worst products out in the other end?

    What’s more ironic is that this man has contributed as much or more than anyone else in the nation to making the health care system “entirely too expensive” by bleeding it for billions, much of it to buy his mansions and pad his pockets. He is completely incapable of distinguishing between intentional acts, negligence, and pure accidents that simply go along with the profession and for patients with medical issues. His presumption is apparently that nobody should ever die under medical care.

    What is yet more sadly ironic is that I know of several doctors that did what they could to NOT have her as a patient. And in each of those cases, it’s her loss for not having these people on board. I hope for her sake that she has found competant expert help that is willing to be sued, but with a family and career at stake, I’m not so sure that I’d be one of them and I would criticize anyone for not taking that risk.
