An editorial.

I originally intended to post this article strictly in regards to the latest anti-health care reform propaganda.
On that note, there are now new commercials from organizations with the web addresses rethinkreform.com and employersforahealthyeconomy.org (and with the first word in that e-address, it makes you wonder whose side they are on to begin with), stirring the anti-health care hornets nest; as if the ones allegedly sponsored by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce were not enough. Some of these even target specific Congress members who voted "yes" on Health Care initial reform proposal, urging their constituents to convince these people that they were wrong to vote the way they did.
I wanted to take the opportunity to once again remind everyone that although both the House of Representatives and the Senate have passed a Health Care Reform Act, the two versions must be merged into one cohesive edition to present before President Obama for consideration.

But what brings this post even more urgency is the latest news from a "study" that claims that women now only need a breast cancer screening every other year.
Breast cancer is a serious concern amongst the female population of this planet to even think such a thing.
Isn't an ounce of prevention supposed to be worth a pound of cure?
Wouldn't it make more sense to have a yearly exam than the costs physically, financially, and emotionally of actually fighting the disease?

People: pardon my blunt language, but all the bullshit has to stop!
Think of all the money that is being spend by whoever is trying to at least alter, if not outright prevent, something that potentially will benefit you.
Money that could be put to aid achieving the very objective they are trying to affect.
Now of course, I am not certain who all the "they" involved are, but when you stop and think about it, which would you rather have: the money used to improve a program or the same system you already have?

You are more than welcome to investigate all the information pro and con for yourself.
In fact, I urge everyone reading this to do so and make your own (hopefully informed) opinion.
There are several websites across the Internet where you can gather information and see what is going on for yourself.
And if you want a neutral website for information, I strongly recommend www.snopes.com
