wow they really want to stoke those racial tensions don't they? Universal healthcare is a matter of civil rights when put into the context of the
American medical system, but that civil rights issue applies to everyone, it has nothing to do with skin color.
I wish, I really wish, your government and media would tell you the truth about the healthcare systems in the rest of the world, many people die, or
go homeless, needlessly in the Us to pay for their healthcare, this doesn't have to happen.
The horrors you are taught about socialized medicine and complete and utter fantasies cooked up by government officials who themselves, receive
federally funded socialized medicine plans, while telling you how it will end America if you had access to the same system.
Obamacare isn't socialized. It's the government handing direct control of medical insurance regulation to the very insurance companies who need to be
regulated. The road to hell is paved with good intentions they say, but this whole plan was gutted long before anyone was even calling it
But to call those who see it for what it is, racist? Wow, that's saying a lot about a lot of things, not many of them good.
The lower class is getting screwed when it comes to insurance and medical care, and racist or not, a lot of that lower class is Black or Hispanic.
This doesn't necessarily mean those who oppose it do so because they are racist against those groups.
If the plan was honest to goodness socialized medicine, those opposing it would be the fringe.
I'm a cannuck. If I get sick, I go to a doctor or hospital of my choosing, present my medicare card, and get treated, if I don't have my card, I
provide proof of residence and in some cases have to pay a 50$ handling fee. My treatments are free. Drugs are not, but they are much much more
affordably priced here than in the US, one of the reasons you guys aren't legally allowed to get your drugs from Canada, we didn't let big pharma
right our bills.
Everything else i have covered through work, for my entire family (just the two of us as of yet) for 73$. That's 80% dental, 80% prescription drugs
and now over the counter, 80% optical.
If I was diagnosed with cancer, the only thing I'd have to pay for would be some of the drugs. no hospital bills. None. And, before you repeat a
republican talking point, I have just as good access to cancer treatments as you do, I just don't have the ability to pay my way to the head of the
And, when it comes to a lot of people who are against HONEST socialized medicine, that's exactly what it's about, being able to pay your way to the
head of the line.
Medical care is a civil right and crosses all boundaries and races.
