  • Meet Heritage's Facebook Featured Fan, Nathan Lamborn

    Each week, The Heritage Foundation features one of its nearly 250,000 Facebook Fans on its “Featured Fan” page. This week’s fan is Nathan Lamborn, a medical student from Denver, Colorado. Read his story, below, and be sure to become a fan on Facebook!

    As a second-year medical school student, Nathan Lamborn knows the health care field will be vastly different by the time he graduates. But like most aspiring physicians too busy studying medicine to digest two thousand pages of big government prose, it’s difficult for the 24-year-old student to put his finger on every provision of the new health care law.

    “It can be hard to know exactly what’s going on,” Lamborn told The Heritage Foundation.

    A September 4-5 Rasmussen Reports poll shows that 56 percent of Americans want the health care reform legislation rammed through by congressional Democrats repealed. Many more surveys show continuing anger at lawmakers who failed to read the transformative bill. As a young man focused on learning how to save lives, Lamborn cares most about how the legislation will impact his future relationships with patients.

    1. Bobbie says:

      We take our individual health care personally. We do not see any benefit in government intervening into the privacy of our personal responsibility to our personal health care.

      The medical field created "medical teams." not only is this the most inefficient inexcusable creation of make-work jobs it is dangerous and life threatening.

      Nobody on the team checks over anyone else on the team. They all ask the same questions of the patient as time slips by. Where one medical staff knew many things has been divided to each of the many are taught individually. A lot more costs. Closes the mind. No one knows everything, They'll take more time to hunt down the ONE that know, when urgent care is needed.

      The potential and it's happenings are in lack of communication, no communication and miscommunication. In the private sector the medical team consists of no more then the doctor, nurse, patent and significant other. Everybody is then on the same page. Medical teams are make work, inefficiency, costly and dangerous to life threatening.

      Health care is not a right! It is a duty of each individual person.

      I wish Nathan Lamborn well and pray this obamacare will be repealed!

    Big Government Is NOT the Answer

    Your tax dollars are being spent on programs that we really don't need.
