You do realize when they say it will be "weeks" before you can be seen by a doctor they mean for elective surgeries like boob jobs or liposuction
@DarthIvan, or just any non emergency work, checkups take for ever
@DarthIvan, my english cousin broke his spine, it took them 3 months to see him...
@DarthIvan, maybe he needed a boob job to survive
@DarthIvan, and they decide what is considered an emergency. People HAVE died waiting on that surgery to be designated as necessary. Socialism never works, guys.
@punsnipermark6, I don't get why that waiting time has anything to do with socialism falling you? There are already waiting times and if those rise due to free health care then it's because more people are recieving care. Seems a lot more fair than you not having to wait because you have more money than others that also need medical attention.
Now I'm not defending socialism, just the health care.
@DarthIvan, said dying veterans of war going through the V.A hospital system.
@intergalactic snep, that's maybe 1/10 of 1% why wait times are longer. Bureaucracy and rationing are the rest of the 99.9%
@intergalactic snep, I say that because "universal health care" is a tool of socialism"
@DarthIvan, I'm English. Can tell you that no matter what you have, unless it will kill you in a day, you're waiting.
@punsnipermark6, but what about any Scandinavian country they seem to be doing just fine in terms of healthcare and education
@big freedom, the VA system is flawed because of the corrupt bureaucracy that perpetuates the system of illegal wars, also vets are already not receiving the help they need, so changing the system could only benefit society and would stop billion dollar corporations and insurance companies from charging people thousands of dollars in medical fees such as 800 dollars for an 8 dollar bag of saline. Ps the victims of the Vegas shooting had to start a gofundme so they don't go into medical debt and have to declare bankruptcy. Pss they won't get a golden parachute like Wall Street bankers, pharma ceos, and insurance moguls
@DarthIvan, google “iron law of bureaucracy”. Do you honestly think that other healthcare systems under the same federal system would be better than the VA? It’ll be a bigger (more corrupt, but I repeat myself) bureaucratic nightmare. You’re right very few will have the golden parachute like Wall Street bankers and pharma CEO’s.
The Vegas victims started go fund me sites before insurance could even begin the process.
Ps our insurance is overseen by the same gigantic bureaucracy that oversees healthcare. How’s more regulation helping those victims?
People that put their faith in the government to solve problems baffle me. WhT have you ever seen to make you think they will help? Poor vs rich gap is bigger with more government. Gun violence is higher, drug problem is worse, suicide rates are skyrocketing. More and more regulations during all of this. Show me where government bureaucracy fixes these issues!
Huh, it's interesting. I've never seen as much Sanders hate as this app has produced
@SkizleDNizleS, I mean after he said he was going to make college free then he did kind of open himself up to ridicule. I mean anyone can tell you that would drastically raise taxes and would be a less than ideal solution. I'm just saying you gotta think things through before you promise them in a campaign or you become a joke candidate. Which is a shame because he managed to make himself a bigger joke then trump and Hillary which seemed impossible until he pulled it off.
@George Feeny, that is all I know about his presidential promises to be fair. Once I heard him promise that I didn't need to hear anything else I already knew he was done for.
@George Feeny, Congress just approved an increase to the military budget 700 billion dollars. Don't tell me the money's not there
@George Feeny, Yeah, it wouldn't ever be 'free'. I would harshly disagree about him being a bigger joke, seeing as how he was able to shake up the Democratic Party and scare a candidate that should have won it by a mile, but to each their own
@SkizleDNizleS, I agree with the whole to each their own. I don't intend to insult your views if you liked him as a candidate as, and I can't stress this enough, I stopped paying attention to him when he said he would make college free for everyone and increase minimum wages. I mean to say that his plan was less then possible and while every president promises stuff you know their not going to deliver his promise was quite literally to raise taxes which seemed like a laughable promise if you're trying to get elected. Again that is all I know about his promises though so I won't argue about if he would have made a good president or not as I don't have enough information to argue it.
@Hoopscallion, we are literally in so much debt we will never pay it off. No the money is not there. I don't control Congress's spending but I would rather not add on to what I already out in taxes.
@George Feeny, his point is that we could move that money from the military to decreasing the cost of college. Not pay for both.
@George Feeny, the government is not Santa Clause?? As soon as the socialists get that through their mind we'll all be better off.
... Wake up and it was all a happy dream. I'm back to the nightmare of Trump's America. I close my eyes, hoping to feel the Bern for a few more minutes before the North Korean missiles get here
@LeShook, if you really think trumps America is bad, you truly don't know how good you have it here.
@LeShook, now you can feel the Burn when they arrive.
@LeShook, realizing it was the failed administrations of the last 40 years that led us to this place. But of course it's "Trump's fault"
@big freedom, this is the first time I've ever wanted to upvote and downvote a comment but you can't do that I guess. You make an excellent point which makes me want to upvote. However, trump certainly isn't making things better. In fact, he's making them worse, particularly on the international scale by not understanding that sometimes you shouldn't play hardball everyday all day. That makes me want to downvote. It is an interesting conundrum.
@Jauffre, oh I think he makes some of the dumbest mistakes I've ever seen... don't get me wrong. But people that have his weird idea that the government was all rainbows and unicorns before him are delusional.
@big freedom, straight up upvote on that one my dude.
The dig about 3 week wait for a doctor..... Is this what Americans think will happen if health care is free? Cause is a load of crap. Live in UK and in the very unlikely event of being shot I wood be treated by world class doctors on the spot. But it's ok America you keep living with a medical system that's one of the worst 1st world systems.
Maybe I need sleep as this angered me way to much lol
@tinbottom89, whenever a debate about healthcare pops up, detractors generally point straight to some accounts that the Canadian system sometimes takes a while to see people for stuff like disease treatment, ignoring the fact that almost every other first world country has it and it works just fine for everyone involved. Debates are annoying when nobody involved allows their opinion to change at all.
@tinbottom89, that's not what Americans believe, just conservatives. Somehow they think that things working well in other countries means that they'll destroy America. I blame Fox News and multiple generations of indoctrination.
@tinbottom89, why does our healthcare make you so angry? It really isn't your business
@Osama bin Dead, he said in his comment. Because we're lying about his healthcare when we say it takes weeks and such
@Welcommatt, not to start a war here, but I see this all the time and I have to ask. If people want what other countries have so badly, why don't they just move there?
@Caine, because they aren't america, they're doing something better than we are, not everything.
@Caine, Because as we all know, gathering up the money to leave all your friends, family, and culture while trying to successfully get citizenship and emigrate to those countries, and readjust to their culture and systems is just a walk in the park right?
@Dexios S Divine, no, in Australia pretty much everything is better...
@Welcommatt, I'm not a "conservative" and I never watch Fox News. I've seen the level of incompetence in our government's ability to effectively run a healthcare organization.
I blame congress and president for getting involved where they shouldn't be and not getting involved where they should.
@tinbottom89, You can tell a comments political by the downvotes each comment has in this chain
@DeadStroke, so rather than worming hard to move somewhere that has something you want, you make an entire nation pay for it to be in their country. Makes sense buddy.
@Dexios S Divine, just lol.
@Caine, The logic. We pay more for worse healthcare than everywhere else. You wouldn't need to work hard to not die if we had the systems other countries had but changed a bit to fit america. You pay taxes for schools, roads, busses, tons of shït. America isn't void of socialist programs.
@Dexios S Divine, strange that argument. Because I had better coverage for less money before the shït we call Obama care hit the fan and sprayed everyone in the face.
@Caine, considering repubs did everything they could to sabatoge it I’m not surprised. OC is shït now and instead of fixing it they’re trying to get rid of it, well tried and failed to replace it with something worse. Blame the repubs for the shït health care we got right now
To be fair, Sanders wasn't a gun-grabber, at least not overtly.
@Doctor Krieger, he was actually pro-2A in pretty much every way he just wanted to enforce existing laws.
A lot of this meme is just pure ignorance of what he actually stood for and instead based off fictional socialism and extremes.
Made me chuckle though so there's that!
You ever see a picture that genuinely made you laugh, but you know you can never share it because everyone's just going to argue the politics of it? This is that picture for me.
Sounds like such a fantastic world yay socialism
Bernie's plans worked out in terms of economic math. All his plan was accounted for and it wouldn't have raised taxes for the majority of Americans. I don't get why people assume he has radical and impossible beliefs; at least look up what where he would get and spend money from before criticizing him
But muh college
When will there be a bipartisan president in office for the good of the people instead of filling companies pockets
@UncommonSense, there already was. his name was obama
@Hoban Washburne, Bipartisan, as in both sides. Obama was hardly for both sides
@UncommonSense, When people decide to elect someone on criteria that extends the primitive trait of "Uh, is he red? My daddy told me to vote red just like his daddy did and his daddy before him cause we don't want no demoCRAPS in the office."
Or "Uh, is he blue? I'm only voting blue cause I don't want a Republi-CANT in the office!"
So probably never, to answer your question.
@Hoban Washburne, Obama was one of the most liberal presidents we have had
@Commandshark, he was decidedly a democrat but he worked to appease all americans as opposed to the man who acts as though democrats are a disease
@Hoban Washburne, LOLOLOLOLOLOLLLOLOLOLOL
Well written, 10/10
Bernie would have cleaned Trump' s clock in the general if the DNC hadn't nominated Hillary. Instead of working to defund millions out of medicare/Medicaid, our white house would be drafting a single payer system with the potential to cancel out billions of dollars of hospital debt.
HA. It's funny cuz it's absurd, and not at all what Bernie and supporters want/believe in.. right?
I laughed at this greatly! But in all fairness, the Bernster was not anti gun at all he was very sensible on the topic
I read that in the appropriate thick southern accent. I can almost here that fragile masculine twang!
This is so stupid I cant even
Thank god Bernie isn't president. Otherwise we would still have Obamacare, there wouldn't be a wall, and we wouldn't be starting lie based wars.
In this, "colored gentlemen" is a euphemism for the "N word", which is what the writer really means.
He said a few colored gentlemen but you know he was thinking njggers
Waiter! There's slightly outdated polotics in my funny pics! I demand a refund!
I'm not sure if it really applies, but I want an excuse to use it.
