I pay taxes every year. I'd like some of my money to go for medical insurance/healthcare for all.

Instead of the trilliions we waste on stupid stuff, like congressional salaries for one.


You know what?

Before anyone thinks about another free gimmee to people. I want us to pay off the national debt, fix the entitlement programs we already pay out on, and create a workable, sustainable budget ... *without* drastically raising my taxes.

Then, maybe we can talk about another pie-in-the-sky entitlement to wreck sh!t all over again.

Health care should be a staple in any civilized society.

It's not an entitlement if I'm paying for it. Do you know how many tens of thousands...maybe even hundreds of thousands Iv'e paid in taxes in my lifetime. That's not an entitlement. I don't want that money going to bombs for Israel or dinner with Saudi Killers or a bloated NSA/CIA/IRS/FBI/Homeland Security and Fema budget.

It's not an entitlement if we've already paid for it.

But you're *not* paying for it, and that's the problem.

The whole idea is that everyone thinks that the amount they get taken for in taxes is enough, but it's not. It's not enough, not nearly enough to provide the kind of care everyone thinks of, so the government either goes into debt like it is now to cover what the taxes don't, or it rations, or it plays the game of finding new and ever more inventive ways of squeezing water from a stone (taxing).

Healthcare in the US is doomed until the elephant in the room is taken care off.
When Doctors/Hospitals pay more than half their income to Big Insurance companies, Malpractice lawyers & greedy patients the costs will continue to skyrocket....

But I pay taxes. My taxes and the millions of others that think like me wnat some of their tax money to go towards heatlhcare. It is enough when you consider that the US government already spends roughly 1 Trillion dollars per year on healthcare. The numbers from 2015 were $980 Billion.

And see how irrelevant polls are.

To quote The President himself,

“THEY’RE POLLING DEMOCRATS!”

When will you silly kids learn the polls don’t work? “We made 23,529 phone calls, 253 people responded, and therefore the 70% of the nation supports Medicare for all! (With an error margin of 7+/-)”

I obviously made up the numbers in this post, and while it may be an exaggeration, it’s probably not far off, based on other polls I’ve seen.

No, it's not because even with all that ... we're still going into debt. And some of your taxes do go to health care now -- it's called Medicare and Medicaid. Where do you think the government gets money for those programs? Thin air? They're two of the two biggest expenditures we have.

There’s the poll in question. They asked about 8000 people. Any more questions?

Edit: I couldn’t get a direct link for the poll. If you click the link above and type in “Medicare for all” in the search field, you will find it.

Edit 2: Averaged the votes per day to get 8000 respondents, still only .002% of the US population

402 people!

Pfft!

Well that settles it!

Why even vote or debate anymore!

402!

That's almost twice the number of people in the US alone!


402.

They should just take this to Orange-boi and shove this in his fat face and say, "SEE! 402 fatty! YOU LOSE!"

402.

If the number of people were shots of bourbon, I'd call this poll, "September".

402.

If the number of people were nipple piercings, this poll couldn't fill a mediocre strip club!

402.

I've got more hair in my bald spot than 402 and I call myself bald!

402.

If 402 was my weight, I could fit back into my skinny jeans.


402.


Running out of stupid things to say about 402.

Probably some members here who could help.

402.

Dear god.

402.

Guess what? I pay taxers too, and 50% of Americans roughly, do not. And what you and I and other entities pay is not enough for what is there now.

That's what I keep telling you.

Like I've already established, solja boy, taxpayers could vanish off the face of Earth tomorrow... I'd not notice. I reckon with your VA status, GI bill, and military pension the same doesn't hold true for you. But please, by all means keep swinging that imaginary E-unit around for all to see... im sure somebody believes you and is impressed.

All depends on the question... Would you support an affordable healthcare system? I would...sure

What's needed is a REPLACE-REPEAL plan. Replace is first, followed by Repealing of Obamacare.

Republicans need to get their LOGIC right. This is the #1 issue in America right now.

If you want affordable healthcare get the GD state out of it.

Medicaid,medicare.

The effing US government is the largest single insurer.

Medicare for all would bankrupt the country nearly immediately if prices are not cut drastically.

Considering the political power of the medical industry that will not happen.

People that are for this idea are just plain ignorant.

All these socialist medical systems in Europe have doctors making significantly less, they were educated for much less than the us, and don’t have a legal system run amok.
