Japan is in Asia.
YOURE ALL WRONG.
canada isn't in europe...
It sort of is government-wise.
Dude, you need to watch that. Great Britain is an island.
But hey, it still has a better health care system than you.
why does an island make a difference? Ever been on a boat or plane buddy?
You obviously have no idea that your country also contains Northern Ireland.
You forgot Australia, we have very good health care.
It wouldn't necessarily end unemployment because there aren't any jobs.
And raising taxes on the rich would just make them want to leave. Paterson in NY rose taxes for the rich, and they all moved, essentially making NY a lot poorer than before the taxes were raised.
I don't believe it's the government's job to make sure we're happy. They're people, too. They're not supreme beings. They only care about themselves most of the time. I, personally, wouldn't trust them to keep me healthy and protected at all times.
Right, because compared to the insurance companies, putting your trust in government is a no-no....
Call me crazy, but I trust insurance companies more than the government.
How so? Last time I checked, insurance companies and businesses in general are there to protect the profits. Government is there to protect the people.
You could say " government is so badd. It's done nothing for me", but really, where would we be without it?
I do recognize a need for a government, don't get me wrong.
And they're no longer for protecting the people, or at least as much. The House keeps trying to raise their profits, which compromises the money given to schools and programs designed to keep roads safe, etc.
And, they don't know much about insurance overall. At least insurance companies know what they're doing. Yeah, they're stingy and money-hoarders, but they know how to handle money and make sure we get our benefits. The government hasn't been very successful in much in the past decade or so.
Also, the government can barely do the jobs we elected them for, why are people so sure they can take on another responsibility?
And they would try to drop you in a heartbeat if you come down with an ilness that requires extensive and expensive treatments.
Handling money? They run out of money just as much as the government. Only difference is, they can raise up the price- sometimes by large amounts.
If the government ever did something like that, the Tea Party would go crazy.
If the government ever recieved from everybody each month, the amount they pay in premiums, do you think we'd be in that much of a debt?
Only if you didn't mention it and it was a prior condition.
My mom has had 2 expensive stays in the past 2-3 months: One was a surgery that cost $70,000, but was only a $50 emergency room copay, and the other was a $35,000 stay at a hospital, but it was only a small copay. It's because the insurance company knew of both [just looked up to see if they could drop you now, so I might be off]
At least with insurance companies, though, they won't raise our price if someone else gets sick [With the government, if so many people get expensive treatments, taxes will go up even if you, yourself, never go to the hospital]
And, probably not, but people who pay a lot in premiums usually like their service. If not, then, oh well. They chose that company. I just don't understand why people that make money and want different coverage should basically get punished because they worked hard for their money.
Sorry if I'm missing any of your points! I'm multitasking right now
So do I, and I'm being sued by an insurance company.
Wait I don't understand this post someone please explain?
You also forgot Costa Rica.
I like our health care system.
Partially because changing it could really mess us up.
1. Our government [no matter which party it is] is corrupt, and they can't run shit. See: Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, THE COUNTRY
2. We have 300mill people, give or take a few mill. That is a lot. Changing health care for EVERYONE would be difficult.
3. We're broke as it is. In fact, we're trillions of dollars in debt. How can we afford this? Taxing people isn't really an option because...
4. 10% of America pays 97% of the taxes, or something insane like that. The other 90% of Americans would be the ones needing the health care services, so it's money being sucked out of the system.
I see what people mean when they want everyone to have health care, but at this point in time, I really don't believe it's plausible. Plus, how they're trying to go about it seems unconstitutional IMO. But that's just my two cents. Feel free to agree or disagree.
canada's healthcare sucks
But it's free. Free is good. Means more money for beer.
