As we all know, the US Government is the most efficient, well oiled machine going today.  We pay $1200 for a flashlight and call it an emergency lighting system, we pay dead people for years without ever knowing they have passed.  We have fraud dripping from every program. 

 

Then, it is natural to have a bloated, non efficient, can't get out of its own way government to take over the healthcare system in America.  We know already that we have nothing to fear like coercement and privacy issues from our government, they would never do that.  And they say they are doing this for our good and to SAVE money.  Yep, bank it.  Big savings coming your way from the same folks that bring us all the other penny pinching programs like USPS.

 

The wonderful, awe inspiring website for the Obamacare is a microcosm of what you will see.  They paid hundreds of millions of dollars for a relic of a site that does not work.  634 million to be exact.  This is just the start of the good things you can expect from your government.  Pay more, get exponentially less.

 

But hey, you can soon rule over an electorate by rationing things or at least by threatening such.  As long as you can manipulate the public and have them need you and vote to keep in office, no price is too high.

 

Road to hell is paved with good intentions.

The majority voted for a president who ran on healthcare reform. If the majority did not want it they could have voted for McCain or Romney

Yeah but a bunch of black people voted which invalidates the whole process for g5 and stirs.

You sound as if you still buy into the original propaganda. Do you really believe your health care will cost YOU less (do you work/) and your health care is going to be better now?

Depends on who you ask. Some people will pay more some about the same and some less, and I think people who can now get insurance who couldn't before would think their coverage is significantly better than zero and possibly life saving.

I have had insurance through my employer since I began my career 14 years ago. Costs have risen and coverage has weakened every year. The ACA is not the only driver in the cost increase, but it's a convenient scapegoat.

 

I understand that I will have to pay more for everyone to have access to healthcare and I accept that because I believe it is the right thing to do and that it will yield positive benefits for our country.

So you are saying that American Capitalists are less efficient at running a health care system than socialist societies?

    • Just another reminder the guy you voted for and the party you affiliate with is failing to govern and is going to get impeached in the near future. Your gonna need a lot of creativity to make your life bearable in the coming future. Down with Trump Down with Russia  
    • I finally was able to watch it last night.

      I thought it was a good episode.

      The trouble is that it has only been about the second or third good episode out of the second half 8 of this season.

      I like show Negan almost as much as the comic one, and I know that probably puts me in a minority, but I think JDM does a fantastic job.

      Also, show Eugene is easily one of my favorite characters at this point. Comic Eugene was/is kind of boring at times.

      This episode showed what I've been saying all along though, that Rick and Negan are rooted in the same character. Rick is more supported by the individuals in his group, while Negan is more the totalitarian. Rick is more moral-majority and Negan is more "I make the rules, and you better follow them." But at their base, they are exactly the same. They are just dudes trying to survive a zombie apocalypse the best way they know how, and they are trying to make the world work again.

      I can go ahead and spoil most of the finale, I think, if you want to be spoiled. It sounds pretty epic and intense.

    • I also haven't finished it yet and that's mainly because the guy playing Danny sucks. If they had gotten a better actor I think this show would have been so much better. As it stands now I have two episodes left to watch and no desire to do so, and I am one of those people who finishes everything once I start it.
