@1toughlady @jsw1108@hdc77494@AllenGingrich@jrhoehn Yes!   They felt obligated to step in.  They wanted to increase THEIR power, THEIR influence and THEIR money.    Did you think they stepped in to help you?!


Ha!!!

@jrhoehn @1toughlady@hdc77494@AllenGingrich That's pretty awesome, hoehn.  It shows the problem clearly.  You can see from the posts below; however, that you can't make the willfully blind see.

@1toughlady @hdc77494@AllenGingrich@jrhoehn "the Jungle" was a work of fiction. One of sinclairs socialist buddies even claimed his representation of the meat packing industry was nothing like he; who grew up in the meat packing industry, ever saw.

@1toughlady No, there would be a huge profit incentive for people to provide health care in this hugely wealthy(wealthiest society in the history of mankind) society; made wealthy by the free market.  The free market is the ONLY way for a moral society.


Somalia and Afghanistan are poor countries because of Govt (whether it be tribal or colonial).   They don't have nearly any of the goods or services we have. 

A specious argument indeed.


Germany and Scandinavia take all that money up front in taxes.   The people are not paying directly for health care, but they are paying up to 75% of their incomes in taxes.  NOTHING is free. 


I'd rather keep all the money I work for and decide myself how to best spend it. Be it healthcare or any other good or service.

@TomGrosman Free markets produce wealth AND extend choice.    It happens over and over and over- every time.  


In your example, you would not have to worry about shopping, because the overall costs of healthcare would be lower.  Even if you didn't get the least expensive doctor, your costs would be lower than they are now.   You could worry about price shopping after the initial first aid and care was administered.  If you needed.

@garoth183 @mustbtheswineflu No, yours is the screed.  We have not had a free market in healthcare for forty or fifty years.  This is deliberate.  If we had a free market, this whole "political" issue would be non existent, and we would have the least expensive healthcare costs possible.


Statism and central planning NEVER work.  What will it take for you to open up your eyes?!

 The problem is too many people "love" this president. Unfortunately, it is a blind, silly, teenage kind of love.

 Yeah, when I read that sentence, I had to smirk to myself.  Only someone with alot of education could say something so blatantly absurd.

I see a lot of smug comments from some snide people.   It is touching to see such faith in the govt.  Especially from the Cuban guy.  Nice.  If we could only have cuba's healthcare system.  Soon enough, I guess.  Then we can all have the opportunity to die of hypothermia in 50 degree weather while we're in the hospital.   If the founders of this country had the same blind faith in govt ,  we would all be living in a different world.  Will you all have the same blind faith in govt when the other party is in power?   I did notice that not one of you smug, pro regime individuals addressed even one issue the women mentioned in the article.   No refutation of facts, just "its all gonna be wonderful..."    Good luck with your blind allegiance in govt as it destroys the middle class while you mindlessly cheer it on.
