No one doubts that that there are problems with 'universal healtcare for all'.
Take a quick look at this articel on the ratings of countries throughout the world - Notice France is number one,
and the USA is 37 !
World Health Organization’s Ranking of the World’s Health Systems
I am not trying to back Obamacare - It was too little, too late, and it in fact didn't cover all anyway.
Remember when they were debating that bill in congress nine years ago? - Some Democratic congressmen, like the Republican holdouts to repeal it today;
Insisted that there be no 'public option' for people who couldnt afford to pay for it.
And who was the real winner then? And who is the real villian now?
Thw Socialists who want universal care like Bernie Sanders?
NO - the real villians are the insurance companies that the Democrats and Obama sold out to - Whose profits are killing many people and found
Obamacare wasn't profitable for their bottom line.
I won't name any names - But a couple of years ago I had a problem with what sounded like a great health insurance policy I got for a 90+ year old
person and it was free - It sounded great until it came time for the company to pay a claim- -The company tried every trick and lie in the book to
avoid playing a perfectly legitimate claim - So I did some reserch - This company, one of the major insurance companies that as of late has been
growing bigger and bigger - was charged under RICO [Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act] - Charges having been made by several
hospitals in New York.
Apparently the companies lawyers and whatever payouts in fines or whatever, were able to beat the charges
- This company is now near, if not at, the top of the ladder.
So you see its not Obamacare in itself that is failing - It's the insurance companies that are triumphing, and in the process,
destroying the American healthcare system - And Obamacare apparently made it easier - And then they force, by payoffs,
their Republican lackeys to give them back total control - Given the opportunity they crash not only Medicaid, but
Medicare, which all over 65 get today for free - And Yes when Lyndon Johnson and the Democrats controlled congress and
therefore were able to get Medicare passed - they [the insurance companies and Republicans] did all they could to stop it
Fact is, like it or not, the United States is still engaged in a civil war
- a war between Socialism and Corporate Fascism.
And the winner, answer and solution is
