I suggest that you consult a doctor for an examination, as it is possible that she is experiencing lower back or hip pain that is referring to her thigh. Her thigh should also be examined for any sign of a growth, inflammation or a blood clot.

Regards

States will never be able to make it work on their own, when so many competitor stetas like Texas donâ € ™ t give a damn how many of their residents go without health insurance. The wise thing to do would be waiting for the inevitable federal universal health care plan. Beyond that, the stetas are almost all ridiculously stupid in their plans to finance universal health care plans, expecting to finance them almost universally with the perpetually diminishing returns of regressive tobacco taxes.States have implemented universal health care schemes . All of them have failed. The argument that the only way such programs would work is if it were a federal program doesn''t hold much water. Under insurance products are regulated by state law. State governments can and almost always do regulate the sale and administration of insurance products.You''re making an argument without any support there isn''t a great deal of cross-state competition for health care services. Someone who is sick in Iowa isn''t going to drive from Des Moines to Minneapolis for treatment unless they need specialist services from a place like the Mayo. The argument that Texas'' health care system effects California doesn''t make a lot of sense, especially when most stetas make it illegal to purchase health care plans from another state. That argument simply doesn''t explain why these programs keep failing.False. Americans spend a higher percentage of our income on health care than any other nationâ € ¦ .including countries that provide universal access.No, that doesn''t disprove my contention. Even if that''s true, it doesn''t mean my contention is false. It''s that those countries still limit access to services via denying services or .Not only that, but your assertion misses the point that under a socialized system an individual should theoretically spend none of their income on health care that''s the whole point. The difference is that they pay higher taxes and have less access to services. That''s exactly why the California plan failed. It would cost too much and it would require the rationing of care to keep costs down.Except, of course, for the 90+% of the industrialized world that does have universal health care. Those would be the everybody-but-Americans.Of course, there isn''t a country with the diversity of population and number of people that have universal health care. The US is the largest industrialized democracy. We have the most diverse population. A system that would work in a small homogenous country doesn''t work in a large and diverse one. Even if the universal health care systems worked in other countries, the same program would fail miserably here. The closet analogues, Britain''s NHS and the Canadian system all work by and both are experiencing problems keeping quality up while maintaing access. Those systems are slowly failing, and they both have the benefits of smaller and less diverse populations.That scare tactic would be much more effective if Canadaâ € ™ s health care system didnâ € ™ t have a citizen approval rating pushing 80%.. The number of people very satisfied health care services in Canada was 43.7% in Canada. In the US it was 53.3%.If the Canadian model works so well, on the basis that the government-run system was not providing adequate care?Well, â € œ mostâ €   rich people do at least. You know, the guys who already have acceptable health care plans but monopolize influence on the body politic.It''s not just the rich who lose out. The backlash that would happen when people realize that Grandma gets left to die on a government waiting list would be immense the Democrats had better hope that they never get universal health care passed, because the backlash would be severe. Americans complain about waiting a few days for surgery what do you think people would do when they learn that the waiting times ? Or that if you''re overweight ?If you think people have a problem with the health care system now, the results of a system like the NHS would lead to a revolt the likes of which this country hasn''t seen in a long time.Youâ € ™ re ultimately correct that in our monstrously self-serving culture, weâ € ™ re probably not quite there yet when it comes to the political muscle necessary to successfully advance a universal health care plan.Your inner socialist is showing. The idea that wanting quality health care is self-serving is exactly why universal health care will fail in this country. This country was founded on the idea of individual rights, which means that a system that denies people health care to pay for someone else''s care will never be politically popular and much of the current problems with the system is that we already do that to a large extent. Universal health care would just make the problem worse.But with soaring premiums, fewer employers offering worthwhile plans, and more people qualifying for existing government health care programs, itâ € ™ s only a matter of time before the existing health care system flames out and government-provided health care wins the day by default.And yet a majority of Americans are still happy with their current plans. The idea that the only solution to our health care woes is to have a system that takes the worst of our current system and gets rid of the best is exactly the sort of plan that is doomed to fail just like it failed in Tennessee and California.
