Who's going to pay for that guaranteed human right? Somebody else, if not you. It's ok for somebody else to pay but not you.. hmm



a reply to: Subaeruginosa



I think I pay about $1200 on my annual income tax as a medicare levy (would be less if I had my own private healthcare insurance). Plus I think "that guaranteed human right" is also financed by a federal GST tax... Either way, I can see a doctor whenever I want for free and am always guaranteed basic medical coverage for a lot less than a premium private healthcare plan would cost.

Most importantly though, the small price I pay allows people who would never be able to afford private healthcare insurance to begin with the right to free basic healthcare, whenever they need it.

Its an extremely small price to pay for the dignity of my fellow citizen.

They dont get it dude...

Helping others with basically an annual tax of 100 some odd dollars a year to help my fellow citizens to be healthy is enough charity for me. And I also dont live in a nation where its funneled into a two party clown show, so there is that.

I struggle to understand why Americans are so " I've got mine so FU," they literally have the best buying power on the planet, yet they want more, perhaps it's just plain and simple greed.

I think the point is that a healthcare plan should be a luxury privilege, not a necessity... Where as basic healthcare cover should be a guaranteed human right, rather than a luxury privilege.

There's lots of things I really respect about America, but your healthcare system is not one.


Every country has healthcare problems. There isn't some magical perfect system. Some that are better are using the US to keep their costs down, especially with drug pricing namely Canada and Mexico. The US subsidizes their lower drug costs and aid to other countries. We could have an amazing system but have to take care of the rest of the world and all their border jumpers.

She is immoral, mentally ill, and the district that sent her to congress should have their voting privileges restricted. Better yet kick them all in the butts

Breaking news! AOC doesn't like the current state of healthcare. She's told us that literally hundreds of times, but this is big news. Next thing you know, she's going to tell us that she doesn't like Obamacare!

I wonder why everyone thinks the answer has to be to force group A to constantly provide for group B instead of finding ways to enable group B to provide for themselves?

In such a large society there's always people that fall through the cracks, it's a matter of concience. A society can be judged by how they treat the poor and downtrodden.

This is why I'm for socialized healthcare, I'm happy to have some tax money go to a place where people might keep a shred of dignity, also it benefits everyone because if there are sick desperate people out there they are likely to spread that sickness and that affects everyone. As a result with socialised healthcare there's a focus on preventative measures which benefits society as a whole, more people are able to work so more money goes back into the system.

In the UK we pay 20% tax and a further 10% to healthcare (NHS). BOTH are needed to fund the system.

$100???? Not a chance my friend.

So 10% of your wage goes to healthcare, do you use the publicly funded healthcare system ?

In Australia we pay 2% .

That 10% is to publicly fund the National Health Service.

Then a large portion of the 20% also goes to it.

I also have a small percentage of my wage on which I pay 45%.

Then I pay £8.00 per month per prescription. So if I need two drugs per month that £16.00.

Problem is the NHS is suffering for many reasons.

That sounds unreasonable, admittedly I only had a cursory glance, 10% of the GDP goes to the nhs, from what your saying it's much more than that on a personal level......something doesn't add up...

This is absurd. No person should go without healthcare, & no one should go through this, either."


pjmedia.com...

Yes people!

You shouldn't have choices.

The idiot that just said that in the quote wants to MAKE ALL YOUR CHOICES for you, and even that's too much for 'her'.

I know those bureaucrats are sooo mistreated!

You do realize that large bureaucracies are the least effective and efficient means of getting your dollars to the poor, right? They're actually worse than large nonprofits which are also top heavy in administration and also skim off a significant percentage of any money you send before the poor see any benefit from what you give.

So all you're really doing is enabling government theft and force to make yourself feel good like you did some big, generous deed.

News flash, goverment is inept in every a aspect, healthcare is a small component of the overall job, stop making excuses for our corrupt politicians, it's beneath you.

So she has 66 different amazing plans that are subsidized and that is somehow traumatic for her?

Stop making excuses to grow corrupt government even larger. "It's corrupt, so why bother even worrying about growing that component if I don't have to actually move money out of my pocket at the physical doctor's office!" WAAAHHHHH ...

So the subsidized piece of garbage ain’t good enough for. That’s rich. But who know the plan the Democrats came up with isn’t what she wants.

Nope there is no free health Care, only care paid for by someone else, and you, you just don't realize it as easily because you're stupid and duped into believing it's free.

Jaden

Btw, it's literally impossible for a service provided by someone else to be free, unless you're a proponent of slavery
