Continuing along the same old path was also not going to save you money either. I wholeheartedly agree the bill is not perfect out of the gate, but the goals are reasonable. It will take years to implement the policies and years to see the effects. If our politicians have any brains, they will work to improve it. It took us years to get where we are. Don't be disingenuous and tell me you expected instant results.

I've been looking at some of the provisions, and one theme is rewarding healthcare providers for increased positive outcomes at reduced cost. That seems like a good thing to me. Right now the rewards are perverse and encourage excessive spending with no health associated benefit.

What bothers me about my neighbor and those like her, is they have a rabid hatred of the president and oopose ANYTHING he says or does. I guarantee if he says mothers and apple pie are good, they will promptly go out and trash mothers at every opportunity and declare apple pie a communist plot.

Not bad stuff.

I would add:

  • - don't ship jobs overseas and ask me to train my replacement - that kills morale
  • - don't fire everyone and bring in starvation salary replacements with H1-B visas - that kills morale
  • - don't bring in "consulting" companies to analyze how you can cut costs and streamline. Listen to your own people.
  • - for a publicly traded company, don't kowtow to large investors looking for quarterly gains. If you find your company beholden in that way, then go private.

Bingo. And that's why my company recently instituted a hiring freeze and yet another cost containment initiative. They're making billions but act as if they are about to go bankrupt. The shareholders (I.e. large investment houses like Goldman Sachs) are demanding that share price go up and the company will do anything in its power to comply.
