Bogus "Romney as Murderer" Ad vs. Chiropractic Sense by Dr Harte

There was the infamous ad, two weeks ago, with the out-of-work steel worker accusing Romney of murdering his wife by laying him off, thus depriving his wife of "health care." It turns out that she had health insurance for two more years under her employment, until she was injured and left work. Then, there was a period with no insurance. Some time after that, she was diagnosed with cancer, and died shortly thereafter.

OK, political ads will be sleazy. In this arena, the CORRECTING THE CAUSE blog, let's leave the politics, and the ethics or lack thereof of that ad aside.

Behind that ad is the assumption that, if that steel worker's wife had "health insurance," or "access," then she would still be alive today. This is, on the face of it, stupid!

Cancer does not occur overnight. That woman had to have had that cancer cooking for years if not decades. Before that, her immune system had to be asleep for a long time, to allow that cancer to develop.

Would "access" to "health care" have prevented that cancer? Absolutely not! Would it have caught it earlier? Probably not significantly. And, if it did, the outcome probably would have been the same. You really want to know the insane belief behind that ad? "If you have great access to 'health care,' you will never get really sick, and you will never die." Like I said, this whole thing is stupid.

The best thing you can do for future health? Be under regular, wellness chiropractic care, allowing your immune system, and every other system, to function properly, without interference.
