Discussion in 'ObamaCare' started by English Mike, Sep 4, 2018.
Obamacare wants to make the US system like the NHS. Nasty!!
The NHS is free, repeat free, so it can't be bad..
If it was as bad as the republicans say it is, it would be gone by now.
But why isn't it?
Because republicans are useless at doing anything other than giving tax cuts to billionaires.
I'd rather pay and get shit done when I need it done than wait months and possibly die while doing so for "free".
Furthermore, the only people who "painlessly" pay taxes, are people who don't work or earn anything anyway.
I'd call a %20 basic tax rate theft.
What say you , Mike.
Is your "free" healthcare as bad as our right wingers say it is or are they talking out their asses as usual?
Trump wanted to pass Obamacare 2.0. It would have added billions of taxpayer dollars to Obamacare, I think around 85 billion, if I recall right, and the only difference is that it would have been the states who allocate the money.
Thank goodness for Senator Rand Paul and company last time they tried that.
For the most part, the electorate rarely reads legislation over here. At thousands of pages, you can't really blame them. Heck, sometimes Congress doesn't even get a chance to read them before a vote.
And, of course, the corporate media sells it by trivializing the legislation. Really, media rolls with the tried and true red helmets versus blue helmets narrative and that's what drives discussion. "We have to pass the bill to see what's in it'' kind of deal. lol. Crazy.
Right liar. It was republicans who forced people to pay a tax if they could not afford insurance.
Well, they were the first to do it, with "Romneycare" in Massachusetts. But ACA is all on the Democrats. Not a single Republican voted for it.
Like car insurance. Everyone with the car is forced to pay for car insurance. Everyone with a body is forced to pay for healthcare.
Of course not. Republicans were ordered by their leadership to vote against anything Obama wanted to do. They were desperately trying to ruin his presidency to keep him from being elected a second time. It didn’t work. Republicans put party before country always.
