Lewis Black: The Flintstones is not a documentary.

A slightly longer version of the clip that used to be here.

Just a follow up after I read the medicine posts below. There is a LOT of misinformation here. You want the straight dope on the health care ills,email me.

As an ER PA, I can tell you that it isn’t only the uninsured that have to wait. The people who have to wait are most always those with minor or non emergent illnesses and that is the way it should be. An Emergency room is just that. It isn’t a family practice clinic. Emergencies/urgencies get seen first by necessity and that is as it should be.

Depending on the clinic you have to make an appointment months in advance here. I have heard stories of the uninsured having to wait all day in the er just to be seen.

@Rudy: I actually have a really good doctor now that I just got in the last year. I was very lucky! There are NO doctors at all accepting patients in our town! I've lived here for 6 years and I just got a good doctor! My doctor is good, but he's so overbooked that I rarely get an appointment within 2 weeks. I don't feel like it's the doctors fault for all of this, I think it's the patients who abuse the system!

@Brianna...get a different doctor. I live in small town rural AB and have a great doc. Takes a week or 2 to get in to see her and if it's an emergency MUCH quicker. Also, some doctors are simply willing to fight for you more. No matter, they are all human and some are better than others...and some simply blame healthcare instead of standing up for your rights and doing their job properly. Don't be afraid to look around and "shop" for the right one. Anyways, wrong forum for this, so I'll just shut-up now (^_^).

@ Susan Stanko - Sorry, I don't know where that originated. It was forwarded by a friend who gets things from friends all over the world, and they rarely include sources or links.

I think the majority of the Pee Tarts are more incensed at Pres. Obama's skin color than they are about the skimpy medical coverage bill that was finally passed. I am 71, and have MediCare only, I pay a monthly premium for Part B, refused to apply for Part D (prescriptions) because it's a fraud...a benefit for Big Pharma because they are obligated to provide certain medications gratis for patients with income under the Poverty Level.

I had some high out-of-pocket expenses when I had back surgery a year and a half ago, but I'd rather deal with that than all these opportunistic Supplemental Insurance companies that have sprung up. They're just glorified HMOs...all they care about is their stockholders.

Some friends of mine have belonged to Kaiser all their working lives, and have just slammed into the "benign neglect" policy that all HMOs "provide" for their clients once they retire. One of them is dying of a cancer that could have been treated easily, or removed, when it was first diagnosed, but the Big K fiddled around, stalled, and prescribed useless meds until the tumor went into metastasis and invaded his lymph nodes. Grim.
