When I had a heart problem 24 years ago I had heart bypass surgery the very
next day. When one of my friends had and attack while hunting in Canada he
was told he would be placed on a monitor and would be scheduled in five to
seven weeks for surgery. He paid to be flown to the US and had bypass
surgery the day he arrived. Which care would you prefer?
Irrelevant. THere is nothing in the bill about single-payer insurance.
BTW, which country has the higher life expectancy? How about lower
infant mortality costs? And lower costs per person? Hint, it is the one
that doesn't have 50 states.
That's true, but the current law opens the door to single payer, BO has said
so many times, because the new law will drive up health cars cost over the
Do some research and you will discover that the number of doctors practicing
countries with nation heath care, is continuing to decline and in England
there is currently a seven to eight weeks wait just to see a Doctor unless
your are bleeding, not breathing or have a broken bone, is that what you
want in the US? Have you even wonder WHY so many of the Doctors in the US
have a foreign accent? Have you ever talked to a Doctor that once served
in the Military? If you do asked them if THEY want to ever work again for
a government run heath care system.
You obviously attend public schools in a major US city, based on the
opinions you express in the NGs
1. No, the law won't drive up the cost of health care.
2. Because people want a better life
3. Where do they live longer (life expetency)? England. WHere is there lower
England. How about lower costs? England.
4. ETC. ;)
turn up and wait policy in the mornings and an appointment policy for
workers in the afternoons, no-one gets turned away, think yourself
unlucky that you've got to pay to see your doctor. So much for the
"Great American Dream" where you've got to pay for everything. You
even tip in shops and restaurants, you don't here.
Get real, you pay dearly in taxes and fees for you so called "Free"
healthcare, dummy. Unfortunately so will we starting shortly. IE We
pay around $2.60 a gallon for gasoline, what are you paying. I seems you do
not even HAVE Dentist in the UK! ;)
That's pretty funny. Most people when they talk about "free" health
care say it with a knowing smirk, accompanied by finger quotes, mocking
those so ignorant as to believe it doesn't cost anybody anything. It's
not often that you hear that it's "free" expressed by someone who has
enough intelligence to write in complete sentences like you are able to
do. That is amazing. I am in awe.
One way or another, I have a feeling that restaurant wait people get
paid some money somehow. Or are you saying that they work for reduced
wages along with no tip? One way or another, the whole thing becomes a
big shell game. Except with government doing it, you have their
unequaled waste and inefficiencies to deal with along with 19,000 more
IRS agents, etc., etc., etc., to "manage" it, plus doctors retiring
early so they don't have to deal with even worse crap than they do now.
Rationed care to the degree it will be rationed with what's coming
won't be fun if it stands.
(To reply by e-mail, replace the last letter of the alphabet in my
Having lived int eh UK, I can honestly say you pay through the nose.
The spread between net income and expenses in the UK is much smaller.
With lower high taxed wages and high costs you are screwed.
Fortunately I was on expat wages...LMAO.
You pay, like Canada your government is flat out expensive and broke.
Politicians don't provide anything, the tax payers do.
If you don't like what's going on then move on to Mexico. Tired of this
thread and off topic posts! Every politician needs to be replaced in every
seat. Same old dickheads in there so what would we expect.
You are correct. To show OUR government that we do not like what it is
doing to our Constitution and our county we can us our ultimate weapon, the
ballot, and not re-elect ANYONE currently "serving" us in the federal
We can do it in just six years that Senators serve. All other offices are
elected for two or four years.
The Commerce Clause was never intended to allow the federal government to
take powers FROM the states. It was intended to protect one state from
taking power from another.
Clearly what the feds have been doing for years is in violation of the tenth
Amendment and I am glad to see that the Attorney's General of 19 SOVEREIGN
states are fighting back
My daughter was in a minor car accident. She told us her neck was
Local doctor in next town over told us the next available appointment
was in TWO weeks.
Ended up driving 135 miles to see a specialist in the next county.
So much for USA medicine.
Did they have an urgent care clinic?
You mean to say the closest hospital was 135 miles away????
Most all hospitials have emergency services. You must be way out in the
boonies to have to drive 135 miles to a hospital emergency room. Wow!!
Was your daughter seriously injured and how is she doing?
