    Absolutely not! For two reasons: one is that I already pay for people who make poor choices and are now in the entitlement mode to get free care. Secondly, if we had universal health care, we would have had to wait far too long for my husband's prostate tumor (which was into the margins but not yet metastacized) and instead of him being healthy and cancer free now, we'd just be waiting for him to die.
    As it was, he had his surgery 8 days after the diagnosis, and the radiation (course of 37 treatments) as a backup are almost over. All this in less than 8 months after we got the bad news. Waiting and watching? Surgery date months out?

    No thanks.

    I dont want my Pharmacist jumping over the counter to give me CPR but they sure have to have BLS if they want to work here!
    My PhD pharmacist neighbor teaches ACLS, so I will ask for him.

    Wow! I wonder if we ever worked in the same place? Oh, wait! We did!Mine would be:
    Don't hurt anybody.

    Get out on time (my personal goal for every shift)

    Work to live, not live to work.
