Oct 28 2008
Today is October 28th, 2008, and I am Kate Loving Shenk.
I am going to start something new called “The Commentaries of Kate Loving Shenk.”
These talks will run the gamut of what I am interested in and inspired by, more than likely, topics like, Single Payer or Guaranteed Health Care For All, as well as Nursing Rn and CRNP issues, Nurse Healers, healing and health.
Today’s commentary is dedicated to a nursing colleague of mine, whom I have worked with for five years and who is now on the brink of retirement after 30 some years as a dedicated nurse.
I will call her Nurse Cyprus for the sake of anonymity.
Nurse Cyprus confided to me on our recent night shift duty that she knows she will struggle with health insurance issues because of the health care crisis and economic crisis our country and world face at this time.
Yet she would still like to retire.
Nurse Cyprus, Pennsylvania has 2 bills that are pending and that would relieve your fears if they are passed.
A grassroots core of people, including myself, are dedicated to getting these bills passed: HB 1660 and SB 300, both single payer universal health care bills that will ensure coverage for all Pennsylvanians.
This is a publicly funded, (by the Government) and privately delivered (by doctors, Nurse Practitioners, Nurse Mid-wives, Physician Assistants) who would be back in the business of delivering quality health care to YOU!!
How is this paid for? by a 3% payroll (and 10% employer tax) across the board. These bills will save Pennsylvania millions and millions of dollars and will give YOU peace of mind.
More will be revealed in future commentaries.
For now, good night.
