1. Why? Like my healthcare, but it is way over priced. Why doesnt she fix that?

If I charged more for sand bags during a flood I would be arrested, why can big pharma charge more when it’s life threatening?

As for the government controlling my health, no fucking thanks.

Ask veterans how that works

5. Because competition to keep the prices down for those of us who actually have to pay for it is a bad

thing.

Didn't Trump just prove more competition for the insurers means better prices for all of us? I know my rates went down.

4. I have British friends....they have government socialized health programs.

You do NOT want that kind of health care.

8. My mother died in England last month. Choices were taken away from her and her family.

NHS was brilliant for years. I was born and raised on it. Then Lefty opened up the flood gates and the country was flooded with foreigners who did not have 'British values'. NHS was abused and now it's on it's knees. In the last few years all emergency rooms (A&E) have a 4 hour wait now. People on stretchers die waiting.

You can't give people all free stuff and then open the borders.

Here's a link to job vacancies/pay at a typical NHS hospital;

12. I'm so sorry to hear of the loss of your mother....very painful to go thru.

My Brit friend and his wife just had their second baby....they had to hire a private midwife to make sure things went well as they had a bad experience with the hospital staff when they had their first baby.

15. Thank you for your kind words.

There was a time when the NHS was better. I do know it would never work here.

10. The healthcare system in Germany is the best I've seen anywhere.

Your premium is based upon your income, and you have several insurance companies from which to choose. There are no deductibles or copays, and pretty much everything is covered except some prescription meds. I had to pay 10 € last week for a med that wasn't covered. There are lots of providers, and there's rarely a long wait to see a specialist. My wife had to go to the emergency room a couple months ago and it took 20 minutes before she was seen by a doctor.

20. I think it shows the stark contrast between "free health care for all" and

health care that one pays for, even if it's a minimal amount. The minimum contribution, by the way, is 183 € / month.

9. Industries lefty wants to eliminate:

Insurance - no, not only health insurance. I'm sure health insurance is just a gateway to all insurance.
Airline - and with it goes most of the travel an leisure industry
Airport security (TSA)
Border security (ICE)
Cyber security (CISA)
Petroleum
Natural gas
Coal mining

Just a guess, but that's probably 20 million jobs. But that's not a problem since they plan to have a pot of cash to give to those who are not willing work. So they view those 20 million people as retirees. Easy!

Sure many new jobs will be created requiring retraining. And just who do you think will pay for that retraining? That's right, mostly the middle class. This will also effectively eliminate the middle class. There will be nothing left but the super rich elite and the poor whose existence is tied to the government handouts.

Yes, this is exactly what those LW evil fucks want.
