Nina - A Filipina Rhythm and Blues Singer

Nina is an awesome young singer. When I first saw her video it reminded me of a Pinoy R&B. A complex and captivating voice of Nina and the songs that sticks to your head.
As a young singer. Nina is most likely to survive the high velocity life of a super singer. I am not promoting her but just giving a hand for a fellow Filipino.

This posting is dedicated to Ric Segreto who died in 1998
His song "Loving You" performed by Nina

Universal Healthcare Was Signed

The Governor of Massachusetts signed the bill for Universal Healthcare. It is time for the unfortunate to see a physician after a long wait for an affordable health insurance with a cost.

(1) the individual mandate: all state residents are required to purchase healthcare insurance. The gov will step in to help those who can't afford it.

(2) the employer mandate: all employers (w/ 11+ employees) are required to help pay for insurance ($295 per employee)

I hope Jacksonville, Florida and the rest of the country will follow the example of Massachusetts when it comes to taking care of it's poor and unemployed in different ways

The questions are....

What will I do now?

How much do I have to pay?

Can a small business can afford the cost of care?

The local government is still not helping me?

What about new taxes?

My plan was A Total Free Care for all residents of Massachusetts paid by the Local and Federal Government.

Do you have Health Insurance? Universal Healthcare

I called it then The Global Healthcare.
Why should I pay $35.00 to $50.00 a week for an individual healthcare insurance plan if I used it only once a year or sometimes never used it at all.
Wait for a Primary Care Physician for hours and will only be seen for 15 minutes.
The cost of care is like going to War in America. Quality of care is a reimbursement for the insurance companies to get their money back for doing business with their sick customers.
The lack of BS/RN, LPN, Nurses Aid, Midwives and Med Tech can increase the high cost of an insurance plan.
Importing nurses from the Philippines, India, Ireland and China can solve the issues for now but not for long.
I asked myself if America is spending fortunes to Armed herself for a Cold War that never happened. Spend Billions of dollars every month for the Iraq war.
Why can't they save millions of Americans that are fighting a War to survive the high cost of health premiums?
The Philippine government is doing it's best to ensure that every Filipinos have health insurance. There is a plan out there that is helping a poor Filipino but will it succeed and have the chance to make the Philippines a better place to live with a affordable health insurance for everyone.
