    "People are dying": Insulin being rationed as drug prices rise
    in the New World Order's depopulation plan, by any means necessary, people have to die. Whether by wars, diseases, or just too expensive healthcare(Socialized Medicine), we see the effect of how well Obamacare worked since it was enacted by only liberal Democrats back in 2009....When there is free market, prices come down, due to supply and demand and competition.. Vote Democrat and you vote for the very people who want you dead.

    Not only did premiums go way up, deductibles became sky high.

    Taxes will go sky high under Bernie’s plan.

    The ACA was Rommney care so poorly implemented you really wonder if it was not meant to fail.
    Sky high prices, soaring dedcductables, fewer items covered, higher drug prices. Even the cost of a decent out of pocket policy costs more. Cost to the federal government to subsidize payments going up.

    And yet you still have liberals defending it. Are they getting a cut or are they just too blind to see how bad it is because it would mean a crack in their partisan worship?

    Romneycare was a scheme to force more people onto medicaid so as not to lose the state's medicaid funding due to low participation rates. Obamacare was more comparable to what Indiana had and it was faltering on its own anyway. My 3 chief complaints about Obamacare are 1) the mandate in general with an exemption for the very people it was supposedly being created for 2) the gap that left 5 million working poor with no subsidy and no access to health insurance and 3) that it was an off the books tax on a lot of people to subsidize what was largely political payola to women voters.

    Yes I support more access to health care. I am fine with the government paying for that increased access. It needs to be done in the open, with full transparency and accountability, and it needs to benefit the people most at risk, not suburban housewives in above median income households who don't want to pay for their birth control

    The poll doesn't make a lot of sense, but I guess it isn't supposed to. One answer I'd add is "As long as health care consumers aren't paying their own health care bills, prices will continue to rise."

    My chief problem government paying for increased access is quit simply the costs associated with that government intervention.

    Everyone wants to have healthcare no one wants to pay for it. Want healthcare go buy a policy. The alternative that most are talking about is having the government pay for it. The problem arrises from thinking that it will not cost. Want the government to pay fine demand the government double your federal taxes.

    And that is all perfectly fine with me. At least if it is paid through taxes, you have the transparency and accountability of which I spoke....or at least the pretense of it. At the end of the day, however, if the doctor can treat my gashed finger for $200 total when I have insurance, charging someone without it $750 is racketeering as the insurance industry's goon.

    The government took over the College Tuition plan, Mad Maxine was grilling the bank CEO's about how college kids had obscene debt and what the banks were going to do with it. The CEO's reminded Mad Maxine that in 2010 Obama took over the tuition plan, talk to him and the debt the kids have....Open mouth insert foot, Mad Maxine.

    I take it you really do not understand how insurance works. The $200.00 is what you pay, insurance pays the rest of the $750.00.
    Do you call the auto industry goons just because it only costs you $500.00 to get a car fixed that costs someone without insurance 1200.00?

    You need to talk to the rest of those yelling for things like Medicare for all because they don't seem to understand that it is not free. When you have to pay for a house, car, food and everything else I think you will be very upset if someone suggests doubling your federal taxes.
