    Insurance means middle men that have to be paid. If everyone had insurance, there still would not be enough openings at doctor offices for everyone to go to a doctor when they need to. The US must make the AMA train more doctors and we the American people need to pay the cost of putting people thru medical school who have the intelligence, ability and the desire to be doctors, but the AMA won't let them. They can then work in free clinics or Government VA hospitals to pay back the US for their education. This also means that the US must make the AMA come up with enough Doctors and hospitals to put these students thru residency at free clinics.

    Hello I have been having a really tough time finding a job. I am a truck driver and I have been unemployed for a long time and I am persevering to get a job so I can survive. I have been a resident of the US my whole life and I would like to do a 30 second pitch and find out about other ways to get a job in this tough job market. Thank you.
