and see if you enjoy living in this country! When is the GOP going to realize that the health and well being of the worker bees is directly related to productivity and a advancing GDP. You can't run the country when all of the citizens are ill or bankrupt from healthcare costs!
Jeeze...if you can't lead in Washington get out of the way! Stock price growth simply by passing ever increasing premium costs down the line has ended!
Well it is a fact that the German economy and their industrial base benefit from a nationalized healthcare system and a healthy work force. I have never demanded or proposed a free lunch! Get the profit centers out of the healthcare industry, ie bonus checks to the insurance executives, not for inovation and productivity but just because they have been able in the past 50 years to pass yearly premium increases onto companies or the companies employees. That model is now broken! I could run a very profitable insurance company if I could exclude everyone who might use my services and just collect the premiums!
Everyone insured and everyone paying a premium proportional to their income and for God sake, get Wall street greed out of this industry!
andym you are so right but there are way many right wingers posting on these boards than Ind or Dem. Republicans didn't have an answer for health care except vouchers,. We know how that works. $1000 a year and health care goes up 20% a year 5 years later you still get $1000 in vouchers but health care went up to $2000 a year. Result? Only 20% of population can afford HC. Good job repigs.
Canada and Europe don't quite have 'free' healthcare, and they already can't afford what they're doing.
As to the drugs, I suppose 'because the can'. There should be some way to equalize that.
Sentiment: Strong Sell
Could it be because our childish faith that free market forces always "work" more efficiently than government administration is misplaced in the market for health care? Nah, couldn't be that. Anyone with much experience with shopping for insurance and medical care knows that the market power is in the hands of us informed consumers and the suppliers are fiercely competing to be efficient and win our business.
Worker bees? Who works in this country anymore? I always worked and I always had health care you are talking about giving free healthcare to those that want to sit on their but and eat cake and watch tv and talk on their cell phone at my expense.
