I guess I am a bit confused on today's usage of the health care system. When I was a kid, you didn't go to the doctor (as my dad used to say) every time you had a fart up your behind sideways! I and my siblings grew up with visits to the doctor when something was really wrong, for example I saw the doc about three times when I was a kid, first time appendicitis, other two times after I stepped on nails (we lived on a farm lots of nails about). Oh and when I needed glasses I guess, same doctor back then. Now days kids know their doctors on a first name basis and see them every six months or so. Heck even my doc now sees me monthly but now I do need the health care but I am disabled now and an old fart besides.
