So probably not prepubescent teens...

More like crackheads.

Numerous Moms must have forgot to turn on the parental control before going to bed.

Why?

You forgot to elaborate on that part.


Because you are giving a bunch of people with conflict of interest more money and more control over you and expecting them to fix your problem they created in the first place and are benefitting from.

I'm not against universal hc but the Democrats plan is idiotic and completely arse backwards when it comes to. Implementation. They are either complete morons or insincere in addressing the issue.

6 minutes past one in the afternoon Lumenari here in sunny Glasgow.

Suppose its always the middle of the night somewhere all the same.

And even the "crackheads" will require medical attention at some point, else they are probably not smoking it properly.

The OP identified as an American though...

So I had assumed in-country at the time.

My bad!!!

True.

The problem is universal healthcare is more than just an American issue thorough.

Guess at some point our first world nations may be forced to come to the conclusion that universal health and aid somewhat transcend the imaginary lines we place on our maps.

Then again not much chance of that transpiring whilst we squabble amongst ourselves and refuse to even help the people who are already in both our supposedly first world countries.

I think universally, in America, healthcare is already a right.
You cannot stop me from paying for health insurance. Checkmate, bigot.
Stop making me pay for someone elses health insurance. I don't want to do that.


Well, you know it's not that simple though. Insurance is the main reason healthcare is so expensive.

At any rate, insurance already kind of works like socialism. Except that it excludes people who can't pay the tax. When you have a problem that your insurance company pays for, essentially, other people are paying your medical bills. You have all agreed to share the costs but you are intentionally excluding people who can't afford it.

So of course as they always say, they're not going to let someone die on the sidewalk so anyone who has an emergency is going to incur the cost of treatment, whether they can pay for it or not.

I think doctors and hospitals should eat the cost of the uninsured or get out of the "healthcare" business. If you're going to charge someone tens of thousands of dollars to save their life, you're just another greedy POS leech posing as some kind of humanitarian hero.

It's a glorified protection racket.

They already do.

That's why health care is so expensive.

Why don't people think before they post?

It's... annoying.

ETA... here is the numbers for just illegal aliens.


[U]ninsured immigrants who are unauthorized likely receive about $4.6 billion in health services paid for by federal taxes, $2.8 billion in health services financed by state and local taxpayers, another $3.0 billion bankrolled through “cost-shifting” i.e., higher payments by insured patients to cover hospital uncompensated care losses, and roughly $1.5 billion in physician charity care.


The Cost of Providing Health Care to Illegal Aliens

Want to get your health care costs down?

Build the damn wall.

In America they want to make private insurance illegal.

I am actually a fan of universal healthcare, when done right. The problem is Democrats can't be trusted to do it right.

Why do you think they charge so much? Because they eat the cost of healthcare of those who can't pay. I work in healthcare. We had 1 illegal there for 2 years with over $1 million in bills she would never pay. So the hospital recoups that $1 million loss by distributing it to those who actually pay.

How come one Mans right is another Mans wrong where there is profit and monies to be had?

Somehow i imagine the issue somewhat transcends the notion of Democrat Vs Republican or left vs right.

To be honest such notions do little else than muddy the waters with regards to the real dilemma staring us in the face.

But Obamacare was so great!!!

I got to keep my doctor....

Oh wait.

My insurance premiums went down...

Oh wait.

I got a lot more choices of insurance coverage...

Oh wait.

There could be a solution in this country with universal health care.

It just doesn't involve the government taking it over.

I read your post several times and have no idea at all what you are trying to say with right and wrong.

I absolutely want no part in a government takeover of healthcare. Only the insurance aspect. It would require a government looking out for America and Americans, and want to MAGA. So good luck with that.

A few weeks ago a member was on talking about how we need universal healthcare because their family had spent $20k on healthcare over the past few years. I told them in the UK their family would spend $20k every year, so they would have spent $60k for healthcare in the past few years. I asked why they would be better off in that situation, they didn't answer me though.

Let me give you the Reader's Digest Condensed version!

If doctors and hospitals charge people to save their lives then they are profiteering bastards.

They should just do it for free for the goodness of all mankind.

How's that for the leftist's business model of hospitals?

SoOo.. when there no longer any hospitals in business, I'm assuming they will bitch about that too.

I guess hospitals should pay the bills with ~feelz~.

/facepalm

Well, there are those that seem willing to pay into a universal healthcare system and those that seem rather ambivalent to contribute to such.

I hope that that clarifies my query, that being whos correct and whos not?

Because either way, at the end of the day, people on both sides are going to require medical assistance no matter there stance on the matter.

The problems is not right or left, the problem is the existence of the poor who require the assistance of others and their government where there continued existence is preferable.
