Living in Canada I could not imagine the ridiculousness of a for profit health system. Even if the drug is not covered by our health system the cost is capped at 3% of your income and the remainder you can get in a tax refund.

99beta then why do Canadians come to America for Surgery and so on?

Free healthcare is easy to pay for when you don't have a military to worry about.

I am there right now,I had open heart surgery a tripple bipass .Then to make it even more fun, oh you have to have both arteries in you neck opened ,and the copay from that is one third the value of my house.Now to top it all off I have to have both arteries in my legs opened up, this is crazy, I am on so many meds a day that my copay per month is over 150.00 not including all the insurance costs monthly. OH even more fun here in OHIO, I make 500.00 ayear to much to get any medicade help. If I divorce my wife of 33 years to get help, they will sue us in court ,and put us in jail. Any ideas???

I’m going to start saying this more and more and more no matter what kind of flack I get for this. The south is rising again in power. The deep south was founded on the principle of a strict classical hierarchy with slaves at the very bottom, white working class people the next level up, shop owners the next level up and maybe small farmers, and the large plantation owners who had most of the slaves, purchasing power, and political power with only them having the privilege of practicing democracy while everyone beneath them was subservient to them. They also loved expanding their power, and before the Civil War, they had territorial ambitions to conquer Cuba, and much of the golf coast of Mexico. Thankfully we did not let that happen even if years later, we propped up a dictator in Cuba that led to the revolution, and Cuba becoming a communist state even if they are loosening their control by allowing small businesses under regulations to exist. If we let the Deep South and their dark legacy to keep influencing us, we will not continue to progress as a nation. Where did I learn about that aspect of the deep south? A book called American Nations by Collin Woodard.

Olivia P It will definitely take a lot of public pressure to move the Democrats further left in a principled way. Heck, North Carolina voted for Obama in 2008, and has the potential to become a real swing state after being predominately red. I attended a summer camp in North Carolina, and I got a taste of what that state is about. We thoughtful, and more principled progressives need to continue the fight in order to win. Because in primaries, if enough people know about the progressive or new deal democratic option Versus the Republican light, more evidence is suggesting that progressives could win in a landslides because of the strong economic message. Specifically swing voters and some conservatives rally behind progressive economic issues like how some Republicans in Vermont keep Bernie Sanders in office because he looks out for small family farms from being purchased by corporate farms, or from going under to where they go out of business.

North Carolina had a chance to go blue in 2018, but I doubt it with the DCCC calling people in the primaries to intentionally throw their races, so the more corporatist Dems would win. I hope one day that the DCCC realizes that when the vote is between a Republican and a Republican-lite candidate, the vote will always go to the Republican.

HM Fitness Let me remind you that the whole communist or socialist argument is nothing more than a strawman argument. If you look at the details of what the system is and how it works, and compare it to other economic systems which I have done some research on, even got a clear explanation of the systems through a pole, you start to realize more and more that all american liberals and progressives are really asking for is to work with in the constraints of what our Constitution allows, and bring it back to the policies of the new deal which arguably lasted until the 1970s with jimmy Carter being the last hurrah of it. What did the US have back then? Besides Jim Crowe in the south, and in the 60s, the civil rights movement that sought end it, we had top marginal income tax rates over 50%, very cheap to tuition free colleges, and strong investment in the middle class that made The US the envy of the world. Russia and communist nations on the other hand were much more authoritarian, all industries were nationalized or government owned, and they did not have basic human rights enshrined in their version of a constitution is far as I’m concerned. The United States has always sought to be a more perfect union no matter what happened in its history, and while there are authoritarians here in the US both on the right and left, there are still principled individuals who understand what is at stake, strives to be constructive about solving the problem, and even defend the rights of the adversaries like on the issue of free speech. The more I heard the free-speech absolutist argument, the more it makes sense as much is you hate your adversaries. The best thing you can do is use your own free speech to counter act, and even reveal the truth behind objectively false statements that your opponent uses to attack you. I will remind you, that I learned about what I described the deep south as through a book called American nations by Collin Woodard. It is definitely worth the read even though like I have demonstrated to a degree, could be used to typecast anybody of a particular class and ideology to be from one of the particular regions described in the book. I hope you have learned something from my remarks.

HM Fitness considering people pay taxes which fund the government, it only makes sense for them to use that money on something that benefits the people. Rather than just bombing poor people in some random country.

It’s disgusting. That’s why I won’t live in the U.S. ever again. I gave up on America when GW Bush took over, then Obamacare sealed the deal. Health insurance is the biggest scam perpetrated on the American people ever. I can get treated for every disease there is in South Korea or France (my two current homes) WITHOUT insurance for far less than the suckers in the U.S. pay for insurance. Period. And cancer? I’ve been able to save money by not paying health insurance and staying healthy (i.e; not getting flu shots, avoiding doctors, never taking antibiotics, eating REAL food — not the Standard American Diet, or SAD for short). Now, if I do get cancer, which I won’t because I don’t live in the cancer capital of the world, I can afford treatment. The system is in a downward spiral. It will crash and burn and take everyone down with it before it is fixed. The rates of autism, cancer, heart disease, and diabetes are outrageous. The sick care system is to blame. And so is the federal government, every member of which is out to enrich themselves. I call for a revolution by any means necessary to prevent the Sovietization of Amerika.

Remember Bernie wants to raise your taxes. Medicare for All raises your taxes and in the end you have less money.
Harry Mann Jr (1 день назад)
hippychikforever You have given me something to think about.
hippychikforever (1 день назад)
Harry Mann Jr: Math is your friend and you've left a few important details out. I'll use my family as an example. Right now, we are covered under my husband's employer provided plan. Family of 3 costs us $1400 per month in premiums with a $6000 deductible, $35 primary copay and $65 specialist copay. Thankfully all of us are in good health and take no meds, but just to carry around a plastic card that says we have health insurance costs $16,800 in premiums alone. And, eyes and teeth are separate expenses. Apparently, health insurers don't consider them part of the body. Based on Bernie's plan that was posted to his 2016 campaign website, Universal Medicare For All would cover 100% medical care and would include vision and dental. My husband would pay an additional 3% payroll tax = $1248 per year. I am self employed and would cover employer and employee at 10% payroll tax = $5500 per year. Together, our total out of pocket cost would be $6748 per year. That's it. No other premiums, deductibles, copays, or coinsurance is required. So please, charge me the tax so I can SAVE a base rate of $10,052 per year. Multiply that savings by millions, including employers who now don't have to haggle with private insurance companies and can instead invest that savings into higher wages for employees or hiring more staff. They'll need it because once the middle and working class have all that money, they will spend it and the economy will boom.
Harry Mann Jr (6 дней назад)
No, anybody who supports Medicare for All is ignorant. READ MY LIPS, I DON"T WANT BERNIE RAISING MY TAXES!
Naomi Scott (6 дней назад)
seems that ignorance maybe your problem

Cpured Taxes are the deal breaker for me. Find another way to fund it and you have my support.

Very sad people have to divorce to get medical insurance or else go bankrupt there should be Medicare for all, similar to every other country where people pay into it and have it from the time they're born to the end of their life. Bernie for president 2020."

Rabid Capitalists: What's everyone complaining about? You can easily sell your body and become a slave or a sex worker to pay for your medical bills! You see, this is why people hate Republicans and why Hillary "medicare for all will never, ever come to pass" Clinton lost thr general to the worst president in history.

And no health care is not a human right... neither is education, food or water. If it was, why did we kill each other over those very thing for as long as humans roamed the planet?
Dead Parroting (4 дня назад)
Cicero - Seems to me from this statement, Greg Savacool knows a hell of a lot more than you do about "sacrifices for the greater good." Sounds like you don't want to sacrifice a goddam thing for anyone else. That would be selfish on your part, don't you think?
Cicero (7 дней назад)
Rule of Five I haven't been arguing against the merits of single payer, I've been arguing against entitlement and the idea that everything is owed to you because reasons and you feel like it and it would be really mean if it wasn't so. You might be surprised to hear that I agree that an enforced single payer system would be the way to go. Not because I believe that healthcare is a right but because I wana drive down costs and that seems to be one of the simpler ways. Unfortunly this is America and people have a habit of ignoring what's best for them. At any rate, if you want to connive a conservative of anything forget your feelings and rights and bla and go straight for the jugular... The $$$ Free advice here, lets see if the Senators aids pic it up
Cicero (7 дней назад)
You know Greg for the good of the planet we should probably start moving back to the jungle. Maybe that way we won't suck her dry before the end of the Millennium. But what do you know about sacrifices for the greater good...

Cicero - You belong in a zoo with that orangutan that was elected president. There, you will get more than you deserve. In the meantime, us civilized people can get on with improving our lives. Piss off, wanker.
RuleofFive (7 дней назад)
Cicero I’ve read a few of your posts and I’m not sure you understand single payer healthcare. It’s not free, you pay for it through payroll taxes. There’s no charge at the point of delivery. There are no copays and deductibles. BTW copays and deductibles are what usually bankrupt people in the US. There are close to 1 million people affected by medical bankruptcy each year in the US. 80% of those people had private insurance. In a single payer system the govt. just acts as the accountant....meaning they pay the providers not private insurance companies. They also negotiate rates for drugs and services.
Cicero (7 дней назад)
Yeah this video confirms my suspicion that Sen. Bernie Sanders has no idea about economics. How the hell are you gonna pay by bankruptcy, are you freaking kidding me. Get the basics strait and you just might win next time around...
Lioseia Nishina (6 дней назад)
@Nanael its not the "Medicine" that costs more than a house. its the continual fradulent lawsuits against hospitals for 'malpractice' that tends to drive the cost of medical care up. which makes sitting in a hospital bed cost you about 500$, then the tests add on to that so on an so forth, most medicines usually only cost like 20-100$ for a prescription. which is a seperate thing from the primary cost of health care due to people sueing hospitals over every little thing. not to mention the fact that Medical staff like any other college graduates also have tons of debt to pay off by the time they reach working in a hospital.
Cicero (7 дней назад)
Then move to Canada you Bitch...
Nanael OverLock (7 дней назад)
Yeah, blame the minimum wage workers that can't become rich enough to pay drugs that cost more then a house. They should stop eating and work 3 turns to have the means to pay for this. "A few miles north the treatment is free, and overall canadians pay FAR LESS for healthcare then US does. ALso, their drugs are THE SAME and their costs are up to 5000% cheaper then in the US"
