I do not know where you get your information from, but I as an American do not want to fund wars, we have no choice in the matter we pay taxes and our
government takes said tax money and funds said wars. You may say well get a new government, well who should we get? everyone says one thing to get
elected then does another, its a never ending loop of hypocrisy.
Do you see a problem with this?
I do see the problem and so does most of America, again what can we do, honestly what can we do? we could revolt, have a civil war, and have one of
three outcomes, we die for what we believe is right, we die and lose the fight and those that live pay the price even more, or we win and are back at
square one which might not be a bad thing.
Let me be clear.
There is MORE of a stint, or an outcry I should say, over healthcare, than TWO ILLEGAL wars started and yet finished over the past decade.
I would say no to this, there is only a rise in cries over health care because the issue is rather fresh, look back over the past decade and you will
see outcries over the wars, wars which most of the American citizens do not agree with or want, we want the troops out of other countries.
Perhaps I am biased, I have had healthcare since the day I was born, never had to argue about it. Never really saw the cost of it as it's factored
into our tax system so therefore I never had to give a doctor a cent in my wallet.
This is what we all want, but as you mention below that this bill is garbage, you see we are not crying over paying for health insurance, what I can
see most are upset at being forced to pay for heal insurance they do not want.
If I did however, I would certainly rather remove my "hollywood" budget for peace of mind when it comes to my health.
This is rather a moronic comment, as would anyone in their right mind. If it comes down to it and I had to choose between seeing a doctor because I
am sick over going to a movie when I am sick, the answer is clear what I would do.
What if the person is healthy and does the pay as s/he goes ordeal? should s/he pay out of pocket every month for being healthy? should s/he give up
a liberty (something as simple as the movies) just to have the peace of mind knowing he is paying out of pocket for something s/he does not need?
This is about the fact that the American People would rather spend 1000$ dollars a year on junkfood and movies than health care.
At least they are getting enjoyment out of that $1000 a year.
With this new reform what is s/he really getting?
So my question is simple. If a good bill were introduced, one that actually made sense and helped most Americans get good coverage while
preventing industry abuses, would you still whine about being FORCED to pay for it?
Yes, until I see something that benefits everyone equally and financially the same, I will question it.
If so, WHY? It completely makes no sense to me what so ever. You should all thrilled that they are at least attempting to rectify the problem
and are having a debate about it. The issue has been largely ignored for the better part of 100 years.
So we should be thrilled we are being forced to pay for insurance? and being taxed on top of paying for insurance?, and if we don't we pay
regardless? MAKES TOTAL SENSE to not be upset!
Why not get what you can out of the corrupt system now, versus having to dismantly everything later on?
What are we getting exactly since you have a clear understanding of what is being passed?
I want to know what other people from other countries actually think of this, rather than what Us Americans think.
