Ok i was just going to skim and move on but i must say you are full of it.

#1 Everyone does have access to health care in the USA. That is just a fact. Rich or Poor you can get care in fact its a crime for a hospital to turn you away.

#2 If you mean access to "FREE" health care then I'm sorry there is no such thing.


higher taxes which would also go to support the better and improved social welfare safety nets that would be established.
Um ok I'll tell you what. You pay more of your money and I'll take The fact is socialism does not work and never will. Why? Because i will not work my a** off to pay for you not to work. I would just quit and take in all the benefits that other people are working for.

Now i'm not talking about welfare only because we created welfare as a safety net for our self/s now i know that many people take advantage of it and we need to reform it to a better system but its what we have. I say add drug testing and (if they want welfare) mandatory labor (cleaning streets ect.) just MHO.

And again no there is no such thing as "FREE" health care. No, Nut-uh, Sorry, Na and NO

BTW from your link

I don't know about 2012, but they're certainly dysfunctional...maybe by design, here in 2017.
