    John,
    Investigate Copper vs MRSA. Keep the info for your future use if needed.

    I meant MRSA.

    Saw something on NOVA that showed staph put on pieces of stainless steel and copper; the s.s. bacteria grew madly, the copper bacteria died off, rather rapidly. It was explained that the copper allowed an electrical charge to course through the MRSA outer shell, destroying it. At least that is what I got out of it.

    Get two. Then put them in a jar. Beside the brass ones. Up on the mantle above the fireplace.

    Let me be very clear on this:

    I have no problem with 'universal' health care. I have no problem with the basic concept, that anyone who needs medical attention (be it for an emergency, for long term care, or anything in between) should get it. And I don't believe that anyone should go bankrupt, homeless, or worse trying to pay for medical attention.

    To me, this is basic human decency. It is the moral and ethical thing to do.

    What I do have a problem with, specifically, is the ACA as enacted (or forced down our throats). I don't like the fear-mongering that was used to convince people it was needed (sadly, there were more than enough horror stories that this should not have been necessary). I don't like the hollow promises that were made and then broken after implementation. I don't like the unfounded costs and mandates. I don't like that this was imposed as a de facto tax.

    You get the idea.

    In short, we as a nation CAN and SHOULD do better.

    What worries me about the incoming administration is that for all the rhetoric about repealing the ACA, and for all of the rhetoric about replacing it, there appears to be NO actual plan to replace it. The real agenda seems to be repeal it, period.

    ACA is broken. It was a bad plan. But it was better than nothing, which is what we had.

    I want to see it replaced with something better. Not ditched and forgotten about.

    There must be, there has to be, a better way. We can do better. We MUST do better.

    But we must NOT take step backwards, claiming we will then move forward. That's as hollow a lie as the ones used to pass this thing in the first place.
    This, everything.
