    who the fuck do you think pays for it?

    we all do

    who pays for soup kitchens and homeless shelters? for that matter, who pays for corporate tax breaks like amazon paying negative tax?

    we are currently going backwards. i wish i could blame it on the don, but this has been happening for a while

    if republicans hadnt sabotaged it by withholding the subsidizing payments to doctors for low income folks, obamacare would have worked reasonably well. thats a fact. it still needed fixes, but we would have accomplished that if we ran this country like adults

    we could have kept making improvements and fixes to that program and i believe it would be a resounding success. why the fuck you think republicans sabotaged it?!? bc its politics and sometimes politicians act more like children than adults

    its been immoral and stupid every time republicans have sabotaged hc over the years, but this one was especially dumb. to me the incredible irony is all the republicans had to do was kill some bad portions of obamacare, put quality solutions in their place, and they could have slapped the 'trumpcare' label on it and it would be remembered more as a win for don than for barry. republicans are experts at making something out of nothing, they could have easily rebranded the same basic hc system to credit republicans at least as much as democrats, probably more

    but that would go against the republican creed of taking money from the non-wealthy to give to the wealthy. they had a chance to take the moral road, but they took the political one, and fucked most americans in the process

    I like how the people against universal healthcare have no problem with the military industrial complex, the prison industrial complex and insurance companies and big pharma making money of the current flawed system.

    Why is it the USA is the only rich developed country without healthcare?

    the wealthy make more money now by electronic "investing" than by job creation. its a benefit exclusive to them, usually with money they got by selling stuff to the people that cant make money that way. i call it investing but its really just moving around the right way so that it makes more

    to me, looking at a historical graph of the wideninging income gap is like looking at a historical graph of murders committed by blacks. it shows something horrific right in front of our eyes, yet we do nothing about it. somehow it becomes background noise and gets no attention

    closing the income gap is the first solution to a shitload of problems

    You're right about that. Screw the patients, I guess.

    That'll pay for about .0005% of it.
    My name is Ryan, and I am an anonymous Patriots fan. I was owned in a football bet by a resident of a country whose favorite sport is soccer. Here are some nuggets of my football knowledge:• We should have paid more than the Jets for pick #3 in the 2018 draft, since there will be no chance that we can draft Josh Rosen now.• The sky is falling - we lost Mike Gillislee.• Scott Chandler is going to blow up playing with Gronk.• Chris Hogan is going to blow up playing with Brady.• Tyrod Taylor will set the league on fire.

    You wouldn’t see a doctor you see a NP or PA, only time you would see a doctor is ER or specialist or you have the extra money to pay to see one

    Not everyone goes to the doctor every time they get a cold, imagine what happens if it’s free
