Single payer is here.
Single provider... isn’t quite like “single payer.” But, getting there. /S
All red states.
This issue alone should be enough to spark a Revolution....
Talked to a person last week who lamented that it didn’t make sense to go to work. They would get hit with $1800/month obamacare premiums (might have exaggerated). They would lose Tenncare and have to pay 20% copays on upcoming surgeries (3) (Probably not an exaggeration).
Frustrating when people want to work, but can’t because of stupid insurance design.
Obama’s ‘marketplace’ offers as many choices as China’s.
yep. but by all means people, keep voting for clinton /s
5 down, 45 (or 52) to go.
We are getting to "single payer" by default
HealthCare, prior to SCOTUS determining that ObamaCare was a "tax", represented 20% of the national GDP .
With bankrupting the heathcare industry by ObamaCare ,
and a 25% increase average increase across the Nation ..
who is going to get bankrupted altogether first ?
The industry , or the common citizen ?
By design-—we are being forced into a totalitarian (Marxist) State which is totally unconstitutional.
Top Down FORCED “health” (death) care so the State has TOTAL control over Life and Death of every single person in America. The State dictates who we can or cannot see and a bureaucracy of billions of dollars will destroy what “health” care is given.
Same with “eduKation”-—Top Down total control of every single young mind in America to force an irrational (group-think) collectivized mindset.
All ideas of Free Will and Natural Rights from God ONLY-—is GONE!!!!!!!! Of course, with the Federal Reserve and Income Tax-—both Marxist concepts—we lost the Constitution in 1913. Just a matter of time for creating the Elite psychopahic Masters who will control everything on earth....and they will DICTATE what YOU CAN DO AND SAY AND THINK like they do with monopoly of Information (MSM). You are sheeple/cattle to be culled, herded and killed, when you become a useless eater or display true masculinity, like a Finicum. The Obsolescence of the Concept of Freedom in Man, since the USA was the only spot on earth with the most perfect and true Justice System possible on earth.
In this “culture”, children will be incapable of a worldview like Newton or the Founding Fathers. They will be conditioned to be irrational and slaves of the State where Evil is Good.
Welcome, to the Brave New World run by Lucifereans (satanism is the only religion allowed in the skools and public square)-—and they WILL demand the little boys for their orgies and sacrifices, just like in Babylonian days and in Hollywood’s back rooms and in the Sex Rings like in the White House and Penn State (Franklin Cover-Up). Just like the Bank of London’s “Jimmy Savile” who was best friends with Prince Charles. (That was always the endgame-—to get YOUR children. Destroy the Natural Family so they had total control over all Minds from cradle to grave-—and parents now could care less who or what raises their children and what worldview is created inside their vulnerable minds. But that system of education and “culture” in America since the 50s, was to always normalize vice and evil, to flip 2000 years of Ethics back to the paganism of Spartan Man/Boy “love” days-—like present day Afghanistan.
Trump needs to pounce on this and provide details on his solution that will replace this mess. He needs to announce it like he did with his plans for the first 100 days at his Gettysburg speech.
Single payer = government? Socialized Medicine.....better read what is written very carefully....I think once the line is cast, the hook is not removed or very hard to remove.
We knew this would happen. The left ALWAYS triumphs because the GOP does absolutely nothing. Furthermore, it took just a few spineless politicians (Merkley, Nelson, Warner, if I recall) and an absolute joke in a Supreme Court justice (Roberts) to give Obamacare the push to the finish line. Obamacare (ACA) was fully known predictably to fail on inception. It was no secret since FDR that single payer, universal, socialized medicine was the goal.It is a key ingredient into the recipe for power and control and a delimiter of personal liberty. We are way past the spark of revolution. America as she once was is in the wasting away phase. Even a Trump victory may not be able to return any resemblance of order ,dignity and constitutional adherence of our federal and state governments overall. In my estimation, unless we want to play out further generations to this tyranny until the USA is only a shell of itself, there is only one solution. That solution is not pretty as history has shown.
I was working at a call center for Obamacare when it first started. A woman called from Nebraska to say that there was only one company offered to her on the web page and the only doctor that accepted that insurer’s coverage was located in Omaha - over 100 miles away.
The mission all along was to fail...so they can put final nail in coffin for only one size fits all government insurance.
So sad, American people have been lied to and/or fooled themselves into denial as to where this was going...At the beginning, meme was Congress will repeal it; they did not...and House won’t fund it; they did. Then in 2012, Romney will repeal it, etc.
I remember RINOs like Ryan and my Congresscritter and even some Freepers confidently stating no need to defund it...don’t worry, problem will take care of itself... Obamacare is going to implode, not going to be a problem, etc...Now we have states with 1 provider and premiums rising — not sure the highest, but heard 25%.
The ignorance and gullibility of American people is frightening!
Think of the bumper sticker on that slow-moving rust bucket holding you up in traffic. "I may be slow, but I'm ahead of you."
These people vote themselves money out of your pocket and they're ignorant?
Actually, there is no pay. Deductibles are so high, there is no insurance except for catastrophe.
Only a fool or someone very very unhealthy would even consider Obamacare
