    The whole nation should go after Republicans on healthcare. They want to destroy everything that helps We the People and especially our successful and working Healthcare Law. Why do they tell so many lies about it? Because Republicans are bought and paid for by the health insurance industry and the healthcare law cuts into their profits since they can no longer legally deny coverage to people with their "pre-existing condition" game. The Healthcare Act is already saving lives, stopping the bankrupting of families when they save the lives of loved ones with required expensive medical care, allowing more than 3M people and rising to be able to buy healthcare insurance now (which lowers costs for all of us the more people have insurance coverage) and has begun to lower the very expensive use of the ER as a primary care facility for the uninsured.

    Vermont just passed a full universal healthcare law for their state. MA, where Romney passed universal healthcare laws years ago is seeing incredible benefits for their citizens because of it - people love it, all people are covered, costs are down, care is up.
    Whenever Republicans are violently against something and tell outrageous lies about it - it means they are terrified of it and what it is doing to the profits of their corporations they work for. Republicans don't give a damn about you or any real person other than themselves.
    Ever ask yourself why Republicans in Congress still take government taxpayer-funded healthcare coverage and full lifetime pensions but claim the same coverage for you is evil and needs to be destroyed??

    Learn the facts on our Healthcare Law. It is not government-run. It just sets up protections for YOU from the abusive health insurance companies allowing you to buy health insurance you can afford, allowing you and your doctor to decide what treatment you need and get it, and all children are covered now so no child goes without proper basic healthcare.
    Until now, we were the ONLY civilized major country without healthcare for all as a basic right. It's not evil. It's not killing jobs but creating them in the healthcare industry. It's not socialism - it's called being human - something Republicans know nothing about. Their mantra is money over people every time.

    If Republicans hate this Healthcare Law so much - what is their plan? Oh that's right - NOTHING plus killing Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, Veterans healthcare, and even school lunches for poor children where it is their only meal for the day.

    We need to scrap ObamaCare in favor of the Whole Food Recommendations. We have one more election to see if we continue as a free country -- or not

    We are also the only industrialized country in the world without a regressive VAT, do you think there might be a cause/effect relationship between those two facts?

    He's a fucking idiot and liar. He looks at UHC with rose colored glasses like every other proponent and likes to pretend the other industrialized nations and even the U.S. states that have it aren't experiencing some very real problems as a result. There is so much wrong practically and ethically with UHC there is little point in getting into here. Especially with someone as close minded as Chris.

    The only industrialized country in the world without national health insurance

    And the right wingers are Damn proud of it.

    Seems like we also pay lots more per capita for health care than the other industrialilzed nations?
