Two Words That Will Fix Our Health Care System

3/30/2009   Comment on This

I am back from Mexico from some much-needed R&R. I did absolutely nothing. I just woke up and stayed at the pool/beach all day. My biggest decision was where I should go for dinner. One day, however, I had a little action.

Happy hour is always a fun time, and we met an elderly couple who were a blast, and who liked to tip a few back. One evening while I was enjoying a drink and a cigar, the gentleman we met dropped his glass and cut his foot. It looked to Dr. Pinker that he would need stitches, so off we went to the hospital. I was sober but he wasn't, so I thought someone other than his wife should go to the hospital.

The first word out of the receptionist's mouth was "crrrrrrrrrredit card". Not "your name", not "what's wrong", but "crrrrrrrrredit card".

I looked in disbelief and laughed to myself. Can you imagine, if we here in this liberal country of ours adopted the same measure for all of the illegals? We could clean up all of the healthcare problems by two words: "crrrrredit card". If an illegal has one, then take the name and find out what was wrong with the patient. If not, its "hasta la bye bye" for you, sir.

I asked the receptionist, "If we didn't have a crrrredit card, what would happen?"

"Oh senor, then we could not treat you."

"Not even if he needed stitiches?"

"No senor, they only do that in your country."

Spoken out of the mouth of babes.

Have you been to Mexico? Let me know.
