of a more universally available health care system in the U.S. by Obama will change, for millions, a costly somewhat discretionary expenditure, to one that is covered by medical insurance and therefore one a person would proceed with rather than live with the pain of joint failure. There may be some time before this all kicks in, but before 2009 end, I think there will be a significant increase in joint replacement. Is my reasoning wrong?
universal health care will be a disaster ,go to canida it is the worse health care you will ever see.you can wait weeks to get broken bone set.hip replacement you have to be kidding !!!if obama lets far left push us into it. god help us.health care stocks are down for good reason.
We don't need universal healthcare. Our poor in the US can go to any ER and get free health care. Not a bad deal when they don't pay taxes either. Why should we working stiffs suffer to make things easier for the lazy and uneducated?
It is wrong. Look at Canada or England. Both countries run out of money by mid year and nobody gets any joint. Moreover, based on what the Government is willing to pay, margins decrease and so does innovation. Orthopedic surgeons will leave the profession because they continue to work harder for less. Universal healthcare would be a disaster.
