Fix US Healthcare in Three Words on Twitter – The Best of the FiLife Challenge

by Hank Coleman

stethoscopeThe guys over at FiLife are at it again.  You may remember a few weeks ago when the personal finance web hub asked its readers to give their best personal finance advice on Twitter using only three words.  Now, they have a new tough question for its followers that can only be answered in three questions.  How would you fix the United States healthcare system?

It’s hard to answer such an important question/topic in only three words.  It deserves so many more words than that of course, and no matter what the political pundits would have you believe…there is no one right answer to this age old question.  But, it was a great challenge nevertheless, and there were some outstanding answers too.  I thought that you might like to see what some others Twitterers were saying on the website. 

Here are some of my favorite answers…

@OwnTheDollar: No more lobbyists
@wisdomjournal – allow free markets
@erinhmulvey Insure everyone now
@ptmoney: allow more competition
@ptmoney: cap medical malpractice
@janir2: make premiums reasonable

In case you have missed it the last three or so times that I have written about the website, FiLife is a great personal finance community featuring the best personal finance content from The Wall Street Journal, MarketWatch and Barron’s. FiLife, which is short for Financial Life, offers its members the chance to find and review personal finance products, ask and answer money questions, and use tools and calculators to simplify financial decisions. FiLife is a network of financial and money experts and community members, who are looking for answers and information, help, advice, and share opinions on family finance.  FiLife is a joint venture of Dow Jones and IAC.

Yeah, def. hard in 3 words for sure. In fact, that’s why I just copied one of their example (something like “chocolate covered medicine”). haha… I haven’t researched it enough to be serious myself, I just hope we all find a good answer together 🙂
