yes and only those three things and nothing else :upstare:Reasons why National Health Care is a bad idea.
1) It is not the purpose of our Federal Government to insure everyone is healthy... it is to deliver mail, protect for foreign invasion, and regulate interstate and international trade.
a for profit company controlling the health and well being of millions of people is a better idea. private businesses are much more trust worthy than government who are not profit driven. big business is in business for the little guy not to fill it's own pockets2) Out government is wasteful and inefficient. They cant be trusted with our money... why should we give them more to waste?
"sorry maam, we cant give you a pacemaker because no one's donated a pacemaker in years ..and the ones we do get are used and unreliable. oh well sucks to be you. you should probably move to canada"
and you know this because as a native of california transposed to texas you've lived in countries that provide government run healthcare ....riight? and you people ALWAYS get this wrong; there is no wait time for serious illness. every single Emergency room across the world works on the triage system. your wait time is based on the severity of your illness. but you people conveniently ignore this obvious fact3) government run health care is slow. people will have to wait ridiculous amounts of time for care.
yes canada, sweden, spain, italy, the UK are facsit dictarships. your point is speculative at best and idiotic at worst4) any legislation that give more power to the Federal Government is a bad idea.
yes giving money to the march of dimes will help provide healthcare for 45 million uninsured americans. the problem I see it is that people like you havent a cluie as to what they're agaisnt. all they know is "omg big government" ..the US will never get universal healthcare because your type of ignorance is the normI know that for many of you this health care system is about compassion and caring for your fellow man, and that is an honorable goal. However you should not shrug off that natural obligation to a over-bloated government who has proven in the past to be terrible stewards of public money. Find a charity you believe in and give to it.
45 million americans unisured is not enough of a reason to overhaul your pathetic healthcare system? you rank below ****ing cuba, a third world nationAlso, if I understand this correctly, the "Public option" wouldn't necessarily be free... so they would still have to pay. Only 20% of the U.S population are without insurance this number is not nearly significant enough to justify overturning an entire system.
which is why americans need healthcare insuranceWe as human beings are responsible for ourselves.
you can afford to pay $1500/day for stay at the hospital? you dont need handouts: drop your insurance carrier at once.We rise and fall by our own merits and should not debase ourselves by allowing others to carry our burdens for us.
lol you're delusional and paranoid. I have a government issued healthcard. that's the extent of government involvement with my healthcare. I dont fill out forms. I dont have to haggle with INSURNCE SALESMEN who's JOB is to make money for their company which means paying out as little as is humanly possibleIn order to be free we must be free to fail as well as succeed. Delegating that responsibility to the government will only drain you of your freedom giving the government more control over your life.
god you people are ****ing pathetic and idiotic. explain how exatly this is taking away freedoms?Patric Henry said "Give me liberty or give me death." and I hold to that.
it's a conspiracy!!!I will say that the U.S pharmaceutical/insurance industry is just as over-bloated as the Government... and do you know why? because the Rx and insurance companies made deals with the government.
Get the government to make vaccinations mandatory, get favoritism bills to pass in congress, mandate that everyone needs to have insurance. We are having these issues BECAUSE of the governments involvement with the health-care industry.
I seek to serve my fellow man. I seek to free them. Some will fall but others will soar.
free them by taking away their indeilble right to adequate healthcare ...right that makes sense. funny how the US is the only industrialised nation in the world that doesnt have universal healthcare. apparently in america not all people are created equal, only those who can afford it have a right to adequate healthcare.
