Little bitch is hiding our healthcare from us
@Devils Avocado, She probably works for Goldmen Sacks.
@Idiot, 😒 HILLARY!!!
@Bernard Sanders, BERNIE *takes out boxing gloves* ILL PUNCH YE IN YER GOLD-MAN-SACKS!
@Real Bill Clinton, Make sure you steal his jew gold while he's down.
@Vakidis, I think one of you two will be disappointed...
@Swolekage, heh heh
@dwnzsnwlion, I know right
I like his ideals, but I think they would break our country if we put them in place. As it is, hospitals absorb millions of dollars a year from people who don't pay for their visits, and Obamacare, though a "nice notion", simply didn't have anywhere near enough planning to effectively integrate into our already broken healthcare system (referring to the debt, not the quality). With that said, I don't have any solutions for this hole we're in, except to do our best to live healthy lives (eat right/exercise), since many diseases that plague us today are preventable with the proper lifestyle, but that's up to the citizen, not the government
@Lady Ninja, to a great extent I agree with you, but it's primarily mental health issues that face our nation, and most insurance providers fail to provide enough help. Ptsd, schizophrenia, and bipolar disorder severely inhibit one's ability to get a job and afford treatment, leading to a viscious cycle of unemployment and worsening mental health. While I understand that someone will have to pay for it, I believe it's worth it when it goes to help our veterans who are transitioning back into their normal lives, and the mentally ill who have been abandoned and left to fend for themselves.
@Lady Ninja, Statistically speaking, not every person who lives healthy will go their entire lives without any medical expense. You're approach is to simply think to yourself "I just won't get sick" and that somehow gets rid of the problem. It's not always so simple though, and there are millions of Americans who would benefit from universal healthcare. Don't believe me; ask someone from Canada or any other country with these policies in place.
@Gadgets222, well, lady ninja said "many", not "all". Are preventable with a healthy life style. Of course people will get sick, and I believe lady ninja knows this. There are many problems with sanders proposal that are being ignored. But, it's too lengthy to get into. Let's just laugh at the pics together!
@Lady Ninja, *cough* it's only integrated poorly because both sides have a culture of intentionally sabotaging legislature so that when it fails, they have more power for their arsenal against the opposite side *cough*
Man I really need to get that cough checked out, it's been like 200 years.
@Gadgets222, true enough, there are many things beyond our control, however a vast portion of healthcare goes towards diet related diseases alone. Of course I understand that diet and exercise alone are far from fool proof, but educating ourselves on healthier choices (no I don't mean diet fads, and every individual has unique diet requirements) can go a long way
@Gadgets222, I also agree that some basic universal healthcare is a human right, however our system simply cannot support the kind of healthcare many European countries have, or not at least as it is right now. We need to find a way to increase our revenue, and I don't mean by just taxing the rich. Of course there is no easy solution that won't involve stepping on toes, nor am I educated enough to make the most prudent decision
@The Megaton Bomb, Thank you. You're the real hero this world needs.
@Lady Ninja, to make a lengthy comment short, the government wastes trillions of tax dollars on things that never actually see the light of day, and a lot of times intentionally just to see "what if."
Plus. Take the time to look up how many corporations actually use tax havens and how much tax money the government isn't receiving as a result of it.
Finally, if you look to your left, you'll see that economists actually support the notion that taxing the top 1/10th of the 1% a 90% tax rate still leaves room for an incentive to produce more and make more, given that we taxed them 95% during world war 2 to pay for most of the war.
@HyperViolentPanda, indeed, the stigma of mental health is not something easy to deal with, and unfortunately their voices are often unheard and misunderstood, or worse, altogether ignored. Unfortunately our prison systems more often than not turn into an asylum for the mentally ill, and while they may get treatment while incarcerated, once they get out it's very difficult to find a job to pay for their meds, so they often end up back in prison
@Casual Mad Scientist, I am fully aware of how unfair the system is; as a lower-middle class citizen, seeing the waste of money is outrageous because I know personally how difficult it is to obtain/use properly. I understand why taxing the rich is so enticing, since even if we taxed them 50%, they could still live relatively comfortably (by the standard of the less fortunate at least), but unless we fix this system, then all of that money will still go to waste. I totally agree with you that some superfluous things should most definitely be cut
@Lady Ninja, America is already on the path to socialism; we should just Accept the Bern and embrace the inevitable Second Depression with a government ready to stop wasting money on bullshjt and start using it responsibly.
@Lady Ninja, because the best way to fix the "already broken healthcare system" is to not try anything and then die of a basic illness that we can't get checked up on because your job building a giant wall finally got finished and you have no money
@TheGoogler, I know that his proposal is far from perfect, but we need to start somewhere. And don't worry, I am laughing :) I just enjoy conversation as well!
@Lady Ninja, The sad truth is many Americans don't see it as a human right and consider universal healthcare as a socialist idea rather than a progressive idea. Even if Sanders were to be elected, I doubt we will see universal healthcare during his term and possibly during his life. The entire medical system would need to be rebuilt to accommodate his ideas, and some crazy rich people in the pharmacy business will not accept change and neither will the politicians they support.
@MOBEAR, personally I think building a giant wall is not only stupid but a waste of tax dollars. Throughout its history, the US has found an immigrant group to scapegoat, and while some of the claims certainly have basis, appealing to the emotions/fear of the public is not the most efficient way to deal with problems in the long term, they'll just shape into something else. I never said we shouldn't do something about our healthcare system, I'm just saying if you look at the reality of how it is versus what politicians are trying to sell to us, even if they mean well there's no simple way to fix it
This man is saying what we are thinking! *Waits in anticipation for America to become Socialist*
because healthcare is NOT a right, saying it is a right means people are obligated to care for ypur health. Nobody is obligated to do anything for anyone else because then they are forced to do it. Healthcare is a service, you pay, they service you by providing healthcare.
@Light Skinned Brotha, and if you get sick and can't afford it? Too damn bad. You're dead. It's your fault. Should of thought of that before you got poor.
@The Real Truth Fairy, ok lets just make it so its impossible to be poor and impossible to go without services like healthcare, that will make everything better, everyone can just quit their jobs and let the government do everything for us....
@Light Skinned Brotha, no one is quitting their job to be a bum because they have access to single payer Healthcare. Of course, If people had easier access, no longer will people be forced to take/ or not take a job solely due to health insurance.
@The Real Truth Fairy, when you have people providing a service you cannot force them to do something to be "fair" because forcing somebody to do something is the opposite of fairness and freedom. if you consider healthcare a right then you must feel that somebody has an obligation to take care of you, which they dont
@Light Skinned Brotha, to be fair, the idea behind Obamacare was "affordable" healthcare, not "free" health care. Of course, it has many flaws, but I do think basic healthcare is a human right. I understand why the healthcare system is so expensive; even if hospitals didn't absorb millions of dollars, insurance companies are costly because health services in general can be expensive (plus the drive for profit also drives up the price). With that said, I think the price of medical insurance is absurd (my dad, who has excellent credit and overall health, had to pay $750 a month for only basic health insurance. I completely agree that healthcare shouldn't be for free, considering the amount of time, money, and resources that medical professionals put into their work, but there should be more affordable options
We are the only one because we are freaking Americans. America is basically the only FREE County. We would rather feel the fire of libertarianism and free markets then we do conforming to less privileged countries that are full of socialism and feeling the Bern.
@honestliar, Bernie Sanders is a socialist...
@funny pics veteran, your right!
@funny pics veteran, you are right!
You're getting your college tuition
Bernie, I'm only 6
FEEL THE BERN!
@MrWonka, Your getting your college tuition
But Bernie, that devalues college education.
FEEL THE LOGIC
@4Chan Ambassador , the logic smarts
It's simple. Americans hurt themselves so often knowing they'll have to pay for it, if it was free we would be in debt so much greater, it would make our already high debt look like pothole compared to a pit to hell.
@CueXFilesTheme, well I can't go to the hospital even though I'm suicidal because of the ridiculous cost that would be incurred on me so I don't really know what to do.
@CueXFilesTheme, this was a roller-coaster of a comment
@CueXFilesTheme, my sister needed to life flighted to another hospital, they charged my parents $400 for a ambulance ride across the parking lot to the helicopter... That is just ridiculously stupid. The helicopter flight cost 40k before insurance... WTF
Yes, but socialism takes away all motivation to work harder and try to push forward to that next level. If the wealthier you become, the more you are taxed, simple as that, you lose all reason to step up your game. We lose so many doctors, farmers, lawyers, a pure socialist country would be horrendous.
Feel the Bern
See how this girl did it with just 5 steps. Call now!
I love how this app has intelligent people who understand that Bernie and Hilary are horrible candidates! Keep it up guys!!
We can only imagine what he would do if she was a skin head
Because we can't do a Canada
