Numerous Americans are opposed to public health care as it will mean them paying more money on their taxes than they are already paying. They are also opposed to public health care as they feel that it does not adequately address their health issues with the tax that they are already paying.
I don't get it, we don't even really pay that much in taxes. I am in the 78th percentile and I am totally willing to pay more to have universal health care in the US. We should just get rid of the insurance companies. There is no need for a middle man to get rich off of sick people.
The federal government is so monumentally inefficient in so many ways. I don't think our current system of health care is very effective for most things, but I don't think it'd be better with the feds in charge either. The whole thing should be scrapped and rebuilt from the ground up. (Not sure if I meant that last sentence for the government or health care - maybe both.)
Arghhhhh.....!!!!! Quite believing all this crap your friends and the liberal media tells you. First of all... Yes the government will be running it. There's good news..lol Second... Just because they tell you it's affordable doesn't mean it will be. Yes that's right... A politician lying to you to further his own agenda.... Imagine that. Obama and his administration have admitted their numbers are too low and will be much more.... Keeping that in mind let's just go with the low #s that we've got right now... Individual-$3000.00/year = $58.00/week or $250.00/month Family-$7600/year= $147.00/week or $634.00/month. Pay it or go to jail. Oh yeh that's just what we need. Remember these #s are LOW !! It's even by the left own admission probably going to be at least 50% higher than that. Great, that makes my "affordable " health care higher than my damn mortgage payment. I may not have a place to live but I can go to the doctor for my pneumonia I'm gonna get from living in a grass hut. Here's another thing they haven't told you on your left wing radio... You can no longer go to a specialist without a referral from your assigned general practitioner. Let's say you're having "female " problems. No more GYN . Nope. You got to your assigned doctor to see if he can fix you. No telling how many times you'll have to go to him before he gives you permission to go to a specialist because the GPs are paid on a bonus system for NOT REFERRING !!!! This means the more they don't give you the ok to go the more they bank. What , they didn't tell you that??? Well welcome to socialism my friend. .... Or should I say comrade? Your whole medical history goes into a national data base. If you turn 50 and get cancer and have had health issues in the past and doesn't look like you're gonna make it to 60 anyway they have the right to refuse treatment to you so that the money can be spent on someone more worth saving..and they say republicans hate old people.... Haaaa... What a joke. They're stealing your freedom!!!! Your liberty!!!!!! They're forcing you to pay for something they have NO right to force you to pay for.... And to top it all off, it's sucky coverage. I can get insurance cheaper than that now and go where ever I want. This is socialism at its finest. now... do you need me to explain how it forces people on welfare to STAY on welfare too? what you say... the left didn't tell you that..WAKE UP AMERICA!!!!!!
