What is it that you think "they deserve?" Why does a 65-year old millionaire triple-pensioner "deserve" to pay essentially nothing for healthcare, whereas 40-year old parents of 2 young children who earn $130,000 "deserve" to pay $30,000 a year just in health premiums to an insurance company? Why does one type of American "deserve" something so drastically different than what the other type of American "deserves?"the current system will not work if the citizens are to get the benefits they deserve.
Well-to-do senior pensioners are raking in the benefits and their burden is unreasonably small. The poor will never pay anything -- they're poor. As the boomer generation fully enters retirement, the cost of health care and pension liabilities is going to absolutely crush the millennials. The "concentrated wealth" liberals incessantly complain about? Most of it is owned by older Americans who happen to consume most of the federal budget with their entitlements on top of the fact they're storing enormous sums of wealth.
The need for health care reform is part and parcel of the need for entitlement reform. We have too much welfare money being sent to the rich who too many people think "deserve" to not have to bother consuming any of their amassed wealth.
pragmatic. Pure, unadulterated, USDA Prime bullshit.
I simply do not believe that it would be crushingly expensive, to the point of unsustainability. Every other First World country in the world affords UHC. Nearly every Second World nation can afford UHC.
Why can the USA not afford to pay for the healthcare of it's citizens. Are we somehow less inventive than all these other nations? Are Americans more stupid than all of these other nations? My God, we helped win two World Wars. We put a dozen men on the moon, and brought them home again.
What makes it more exponentially difficult for us to find a way to get to UHC, when dozens and dozens of other countries on Earth have found a way?
Please, tell us all why it cannot possibly work here, without destroying the country...
