A great roundup.

Again, this should all be paid for through taxation. Those who complain that they have never been sick in their lives, and shouldn't have to pay a dime, ought to be lined up and kneecapped with pipe wrench, so that they DO require some hospital treatment, that way they buy in by default!


Seriously though, taxation is the only legitimate way for a nation to pay for its healthcare. No one should be put into debt because they are sick, or because they are damaged, or disabled or unhealthy in some way. No one should be paying for medicine, or surgery, AT ALL, and doctors should not be rock stars, just ordinary, working class heroes who consider saving lives work which is worth doing whether they drive a beater or a Mercedes.

According to what I know, Trump wants to cure diseases. If he keeps that promise, we won't need nearly as much medical insurance! There is the tech out there to be healing MANY diseases. Some of those suppressed techs will be released if what he said is true:



If he didn't tell the truth, then he would be exactly everything we've seen before with both sides! If he does what he says, he will be a hero to me and many others. I predict that if he does this, he will make the USA a place for people to be cured. Take a hike, little-pharma. That is exactly what you will become, instead of making profits while allowing the suffering to continue.

You can't just cap prices because a lot of procedures are extremely expensive regaurdless. Even when removing insurance companies..


But who caused those prices to be so inflated and UN-affordable in the first place ?
This is one of the roots of the problem with health care cost / insurance cost.
If the roots are not addressed and fixed, band-aids will never work.
This is not and never has been a presidential caused issue, it is an insurance and medical industry issue.

Absolutely, but all the training a dr requires , the insanely high tech equipment and all the other personnel required for a big deal surgery for example, will be far more than what an average joe could ever afford.

Sure something's are super over priced such as a 3$ blood test that they charge 200$ for, but there are also medical procedures requiring a lot of time and resources.


If you keep the entire inferstructure, but just remove the insurance company profits. You keep all the benefits of modern medicine and only lose the dead weight.

That's why you only remove the insurance company profits and keep the rest.

Insurance companies are not preforming a functional, needed medical service. They are paper pushers who keep 30% of the money, while not actually increasing healthcare production.

It all still works if you replace them with a nonprofit. All the drs, nurses, pharma and techs still get paid.

We only lose the dead weight parasite.

I think insurance companies caused the biggest part of the price gouging. Tech wasn't caught up with the concept allowing for massive fraud and no one who actually cared what things cost.

Along with insurance companies killing millions(?) by denying coverage they knew they owed.
