Now that's closer to a proper answer. Thank you.
I'm still of the firm belief that the government should stay out of the "healthcare" business. Let the providers compete for customers, we all benefit
that way. the ACA is an unmitigated disaster, and is completely unconstitutional as well..i couldn't care less what the supreme court says on the
matter; they've demonstrated that they don't give a fig about the constitution. The federal government has ZERO constitutional authority to require
citizens to purchase a product from a private company, under threat of fine.
All they've done is create a captive customer base, and the insurance companies, recognizing that, have raised the price of this mandatory product up,
and up, and up.. The ACA was nothing more than a blank check to the health insurance industry, drawn on the collective bank accounts of the american
Now, if i'm understanding this kooky plan of his, the idea is that if there's a "single payer" system in place, similar to the NHS, that we won't be
paying all this money to the insurance companies, and the increase in taxes will be covered by the money we're saving by paying these crooked
companies for a product that we don't want, can't afford, and can't ever use.. the idea is that we actually come out ahead.
Not sure i buy it, i don't care enough to run the numbers properly...besides, Sanders has zero chance of being elected, he's playing a part.. that
part is the part of "mental old man"...they're all falling on their swords, to make Clinton look FANTASTIC in comparison.
I'd rather Trump won, but i have a strong feeling Clinton is going to get it, because Americans, at least the loud, vocal ones, are absolutely
obsessed with gender, skin color, and ethnicity, and they will gladly elect another novelty president, no matter how corrupt he or she may be..
I think we're screwed.
