If people are going to be allowed to get sick and die, who needs safety.


How's that Obamacare working out?


The real issue is the medical/insurance industries becoming a huge money making system with health care a secondary part of it.


Obama brought insurance companies in on creating Obamacare.

Wow, imagine how many people could have healthcare with that amount of money.


Imagine a wall full of solar panels, it's easy if you try...

Imagine how many more Americans than that will be able to have healthcare once the illegal freeloaders are kept on their side of the border...

Just imagine how many of us could afford a simple doctor's visit once the health insurance scam crashes.
Unsupported by mandatory insurance law, health Care insisted might actually be forced to provide health Care again.
I suppose the first step is to stop providing free illegal voters hell bent on freeloading.

I understand that most of the Invaders take a plane and just don't leave- we're working on that. Cities that refuse to enforce federal law in an effort to fund their corrupt local state governments are at fault there.

The number of pedo rings being shut down in the last six months should be a pretty good indication of what will happen to those corrupt officials. Those rings don't start up overnight- there's a top down push happening. Trickle down law enforcement, u suppose.

Get the state government to follow the law, then we can work on real problems.
Only problem I see here is that once the government is mostly cleared off criminals, we still have the problem of way too much government.

Total waste of money in my opinion as regards to it stopping drug flow.

The last I checked, no one gets out alive. Kind of the nature of the beast.

I hope he doesn't attempt the solar wall....It can't be done lol.
Biggest waste of money ever it will be seeing most illegals come by plane on holiday visas..

Imagine how many illegals won't be sucking off the govt teets of healthcare, foodstamps and other govt programs because they won't be here, then all those funds are available for legal citizens as they were meant to be.

This is going to put millions of Americans to work.

This is GREAT news for America.


No Americans will get any work here. Trump's plan is to hire the Mexicans to build the wall. When the wall is done, and the Mexicans come to collect their paycheck, he'll just tell them "that was the payment you made to us."

That's Trump's style, contract the worker, and refuse to pay. How do you think he got the Taj Mahal built?

USA TODAY exclusive: Hundreds allege Donald Trump doesn’t pay his bills

The secret to Trump's success is to get "free" labor to build things for him.

If he hired Americans, and didn't pay them, while he's sitting President, they'll vote him out of office.

But, the Mexicans, have no vote.

Healthcare is a want, not a need. The wall is for safety. Safety is important in Maslow's triangle.




Healthcare is needed for survival. Physiological Needs come before Safety on Maslows triangle.

I just can't....I mean...

Is this sort of thinking representative of the majority in America? Health is a non-essential luxury?

Is obamacare not working for you? It should because I pay a ton of money each month and haven't even been to the doctors office in years. Knock on wood, since my deductibles are through the roof too.

The wall won't stop drugs from coming into the country. I'm not even gonna go the route of "CIA operation: war in drugs" conspiracy. Most of the drugs shipped in are not on "mules" running through the desert.

Not really, the wall is projected to cost 20-30 billion. This allocates money for a very small portion of it, and it's a 1 time infusion of funds at that. At $150,000 per person per year this puts 1000 people to work for 10 years.

You can solve the health care crisis in one move, by taking it away from all the Illegals and giving it to citizens.

I saw that comment also, and his/her other posts. I also thought about commenting, but when an argument like that is based on such a faulty premise, it distorts all the other premises to the point of the whole bag of thoughts is completely tainted and ridiculous. So I didn't.

___

OP, "Air" is omitted from Maslow's hierarchy of needs, as it is a given. I think your comments are a good example of "a little information can be more dangerous than none", that is to say, when you lack understanding of the full picture it is easy to draw faulty conclusions.

For now my best advice to the OP is, try and not think. It's working against you.

Have a nice day. Plant some flowers.
