Oh shi-

Hahahahaha, do you actually think it covers everyone's healthcare? Newsflash- IT DOESN'T!

@horsechick Hahahahaha, do you actually think it covers everyone's healthcare? Newsflash- IT DOESN'T!

Actually, the law require that insurance companies must cover everyone for a fixed price.
Essentially, if you're like me and you were born with a pre-existing condition (or if you were diagnosed with cancer in your childhood, like I was), health care companies still have to provide insurance to you at a price that won't empty your bank account.

Let me put it this way: I graduated with a Master's degree in Applied Mathematics, and I currently work at a Silicon Valley tech company. No insurance company has been willing to offer me insurance at a price I can afford, so if something ever happens to me, I have no idea what I'll do. Thank goodness for health care reform.

Ok great everyones got healthcare but its unfair to all the people who have worked and paid for their healthcare in the past for everyone else to now get it for free. Also doctors are going to be limited to what they can do. So all you retards who think this is a good idea go fuck yourselves when you bitch about the health care sucking dick

No, Doctors will stop working because they aren't paid enough to deal with their student loans and stuff.

The law requires insurance companies cover everyone for a fixed price. So if you get cancer, you can call up the insurance company, make them cover you, tell them you can only pay 1% of your income (or none if you're broke), and they have to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on your treatment.

This'll kill private insurance, and the government will be forced to step in and become the only health care provider in the country.

Don't people have an even minor grasp of economics???

but it's better to have billionaires become millionaires than to have people with cancer go broke, isn't it?

except it's not just the billionaires going broke! it's anyone who legally makes a living in this country and pays taxes. people with cancer shouldn't go broke, but this sad excuse for a piece of legislation was NOT the way to fix it. we need to start over, first by ousting everyone in Congress, from BOTH parties

actually, this helps our economy much more than it hurts it. usually, if someone was diagnosed with something like cancer, their insurance would drop them, and they would go broke trying to pay for it, or the government would pay for it once they had to go into urgent care. in addition, people without health care could only get taken care of if they went into urgent care, where once again the government would pay for it, and then the person would usually not be able to pay it off, wasting tax dollars. plus, the people without health care will be able to get preventative medication now, and that saves a LOT of money.

Actually, in Canada, we have universal health care covered by the government, and I've never heard anyone complain about it. I've never had any problems with it. Oh, and our companies who provide private insurance are doing just fine, thanks.

I was in a club meeting the other day and we watched a video about the positives and negatives of healthcare in other countries. It really does seem as if the U.S. has the worst system. This is in comparison to Britain & Germany (there were others that I can't remember/we didn't watch). This could totally work. Why don't you try it out? Change CAN be a good thing. Adapting is a good skill to have. By the way, using vulgar language doesn't do anything to help and it really just irritates people. :)

(girl-on-fire): some of the people who "live off of welfare with no intentions of making something of themselves" may have gotten to that point because they had to pay for their health care, as most insurance companies will drop you if you get diagnosed with something like cancer, even if before you were one of the "good honest working people".

(girl-on-fire): I know a couple who are "good honest working people" who work hard every single day and can't afford healthcare. If you haven't been in that situation, you can't judge. Stop generalizing. Also, if the people who "live off of welfare" get proper healthcare, they might actually be able to make something of themselves. I understand that some people may take advantage of it, but don't let that take away from noticing the good that it's doing for the people who, from some adverse situation, can't afford to pay for insurance and food and shelter.

All you people saying that this is going to ruin our country's economic system need to take a look around at the rest of the world. Both Frnace and Canada have a universal health care system, and neither country has been declared Third World yet, so i would think about the other examples before you predict what will happen to our country.
