    I realise that politics is frowned on here and I haven't looked into it in any great depth . . . but it always struck me as odd why people were so up-in-arms about Obamacare!

    The NHS isn't perfect and is severely underfunded but I'd rather have that than nothin' or being forced to deal with shady fuckin' Insurance companies in a time of crisis.

    BTW VAT we can live with. Import Duty and 'handling fees' are what really pisses us off!

    This is inaccurate. Nearly every country besides the US has national health coverage, with taxes much lower than that. The US does not because the insurance companies and drug companies and hospitals want to fill their pockets, and the politicians are complicit.

    The worst part of it is, with its privatized system and incredibly high costs, the US has some of the worst healthcare outcomes, and life expectancy is actually falling.

    I hope the US finally joins the rest of the world at some point and adopts a national system.

    Fuck rich people manipulating the poor. Health care is a basic human right, that all people deserve an equal chance at.

    much lower? 60% is Sweden, if you can find examples of any country with a national health plan & a tax rate below 45 - 55%, I'd love to see them.

    believe me, I'd love to see my existing taxes put to better use but I can't think of any industry that improved after government takeover.

    I don't miss that part about living in NYC. God bless those guys, whoever invented the Broker's Fee is a genius. Just sucks for those of us who have to pay it.

    You get the idea.

    I think to be perfectly honest you should abandon well worn concepts like "socialism" and "government takeover." They are largely pushed out there by think tanks that seek to coopt the discussion and weaponize responses to important issues.

    I'd just encourage you and anyone to avoid the general thought tripes, abandon the "America is the best, no matter what" way of thinking, and look at the reality of the situation on the ground. Look at life expectancy, for example. The truth is the truth. No spin. No agenda. Just people and their lives. That's all that matters - not this left vs right bullshit that's used to control the discussion and fatten the wallets of industries and politicians.

    Right? Bloody smart guys, but it leaves a bad taste for sure. I'm actually getting a good selection of no-fee places in Brooklyn, just trying to find a room that's big enough to fit some serious sofubi shelving and some nice lighting. I could afford to spend almost twice what I'm trying to on rent, but I figure there's no point blowing a lot of money on it if I'll be travelling for work very often

    Misdirection and missing the point. I listed Japan, Korea, and Taiwan, and instead of reading my whole post you looked for a chink in the armor, misdirected, and threw up a red herring,

    Your insurance costs, drug costs, and cost of living will continue to skyrocket, while private companies, which have hijacked your government, will continue to make record profits. You will need medication or an operation, and the insurance company will fight you, potentially to your death, to prevent you from getting the care you need. In the meantime, all you want to discuss is the homogeneity of one country vs. another.

    Throw off the red vs blue bullshit and open your eyes to the reality of what's happening.

    All I can do is paraphrase and slightly adjust what Gandalf said: I'm not trying to hurt you. I'm trying to help you.

    Yeah, but I heard Gandalf has all of his money in off shore bank accounts. I also saw a video of him doing some very unsanitary things with a couple of hobbits and his staff.

    I asked for examples & you provided them. they're not the best examples but examples none the less. no one is talking politics other than you, so save the strawman argument. Did I say the US healthcare system was the best? Did I imply it's the best because 'murica? It is what it is, & it's what we have to work with. I will leave it at that.

    The reason I began mentioning politics - in a broad sense and not singling out either party - was because of your loaded phrase "government takeover." That's code, which was generated by a think tank, which is part of a system designed to brainwash you.

    I agree everyone should work hard, but I do not buy into the contrived notion that national healthcare = a government power grab. Again, it is an argument contrived by an industry that wants you to pay more than you should for sub par care.

    Big fuck you to my sister that doesn’t take care of herself. She had a heart attack that required a quadruple bypass surgery, she’s only 38. The kicker is she had it all the way in Arkansas, but she lives here in California with my parents. So my parents had to drive all the way out there to take care of her and now probably have to pay for all her medical bills. She would have been better off dying at this point. If you have children or parents and don’t take care of yourself, fuck you. Your not just hurting yourself.
