POPS, I'm Outraged!

You are assuming an individual is nothing more than an irresponsible vagrant if they don't have health insurance. This is the furthest thing from the truth. Many Americans cannot afford or are denied coverage for a number of reasons. To say coverage is available to all Americans is preposterous. The health care industry sets the rates and the rules to maximize profits. As you well know, the main reason for bankruptcies in America is health care costs. This situation does not exist in any industrialzed country in the world except America. No one in America should be denied health care for any reason. I see no reason to comment on the new health care law. I have no proof the law will harm the financial condition of America. It may not be perfect, but is a step in the right (or left) direction.

  1. "No one in America should be denied health care for any reason."

    Nor are they. That old trope about using the ER to get your kid's sniffles taken care of is absolutely true. I dated a "welfare queen" some years back who would do exactly that. No dummy she, (actually working towards her PhD in Political Science, I'm not lying) the woman knew how to game the system. Nor was she an isolated case, at the time I was personally acquainted with the "poor" of the city I lived in.

    The word is in parentheses because our "poor" make much of the world envious.

    Just keep working America, millions on welfare need your money!

  2. Sorry but that is not true. People are turned down for all sorts of reasons and can't obtain insurance. Please scroll down and watch Sick Around the World * Japan. It's enough to make you sick...

  3. Obtaining insurance coverage and being seen by a physician are two different things. I accompanied my HIV-positive assistant pastor to the ER when he had a bit of flu. The man received quick, up-to-date care. All of it was free of charge, courtesy of the American taxpayer.

    By law, nobody can be turned away from a hospital ER with a potentially life threatening condition. All a welfare queen has to do is fudge a bit on describing the symptoms. As an example; non specific chest pains may signal a heart attack, they may also indicate gas. Tell an ER physician you're feeling such discomfort and they'll go for the worst possible case.

    Been there with my welfare recipient friends, know what I'm talking about.

I WORKED FOR THE DEPT OF JOBS AND FAMILY SERVICE AND BELIEVE ME NO ONE!! NO ONE!! IS DENIED. This is the furthest thing from the truth. Many Americans cannot afford or are denied coverage for a number of reasons. THOSE REASONS WOULD BE?To say coverage is available to all Americans is preposterous.REFER TO MY FIRST ANSWER. The health care industry sets the rates and the rules to maximize profits.YES, THEY DO MAKE A PROFIT IT'S CALLED CAPITALISM! As you well know, the main reason for bankruptcies in America is health care costs.NO, I WAS NOT. PLEASE TO CITE CHAPTER AND VERSE. This situation does not exist in any industrialized country in the world except America. No one in America should be denied health care for any reason. REFER TO ANSWER #1 AGAIN. I see no reason to comment on the new health care law. BECAUSE YOU CANNOT JUSTIFY IT OR THE COST ASSOCIATED WITH IT.I have no proof the law will harm the financial condition of America. GOOD POINT. HAVING SAID THAT MANY ECONOMISTS HAVE SAID THAT.It may not be perfect, but is a step in the right (or left) direction. I LIKE YOU, ALWAYS WITH THE GOOD PUN. I THINK YOU MAY BE RIGHT IT WAS TOO FAR TO THE LEFT.

  5. It's true people with no insurance have access to health care if you believe showing up at the hospital is somehow the same as health care. I think you forgot to mention you most likely will be bankrupt because of the inflated hospital charges. Somehow, that doesn't seem fair.
