+2,176It would be cool if the commercial break was made up of one big commercial that included all the products you normally see in a commercial break. Like a family riding in a Ford Fusion go out to State Farm to get life insurance. One of the kids is playing with a Barbie doll in the car. She starts to choke on one of Barbie's shoes and they have to go to St. Mary's hospital. Then, once the child is revived, they end the day with dinner at Applebee's. Amirite?
+145Americans have been grossly misinformed on the topic of socialized medicine and universal healthcare --- to the advantage of insurance companies and health lobbyists. amirite?
-14My dad does pretty well. He works over 14 hours a day, I don't really see him unless I'm up really late, or on the weekends. He got a really good job by working extremely hard in high school and in multiple levels of college, earning degrees, including masters. He makes more money then some people. Why should he have to pay more in taxes to cover someone else's health insurance,for someone who may have partied in high school and college, for someone who may not have worked as hard, for someone who may just not have tried. Yes, people should have health insurance, but just because someone makes more money doesn't mean they should pay more in taxes. (I know there are people who work hard who don't make a lot of money) My dad works hard for his money, the same way many others do. More
+245how about instead of forcing us to buy health insurance, the government could actually abide by the constitution they swore to uphold. amirite?
I feel so happy to have been born in Belgium, Westearn-Europe and not in the USA. People here accept and respect other people's differences. Being fired for being LGBT is unheard of here. It's even illegal here to discriminate against people with a different sexual orientation or gender identity. People who disagree with respecting LGBT people's gender identity or sexual orientation are shunned here. Nobody makes a problem if someone in their friend circle is gay-bi-lesbian-pan or trans. LGBT people here don't have to fear discrimination on a job sollicitation. It's illegal to discriminate based on sexual orientation or gender identity. People being killed for their sexual orientation or gender identity is also unheard of here. Religious folks cannot spread their believes publicly. They can only talk about their religion in small, intimate circles like the church which almost nobody visits here anyway. Almost nobody is religious here. Especially not the younger generations. Spreading your religious believes on the work floor or in any other public place is illegal here. Our health care insurance, which everyone has here and is very affordable, covers all kinds of procedures and doesn't exclude procedures for transgender related care. It's illegal to do so. This is a very very liberal area and I am very greatful to live in such an accepting and supportive environment and not in the USA.
How does it work in America? When you go to the Doctor or the hospital? In Australia if you go to the GP it's covered by Medicare EVERYONE. If you go to Emergency you are covered by Medicare EVERYONE. I'm watching an American TV show the woman fainted was rushed to hospital was ok then she left, that cost $500 because they had no insurance.....that's insane ...
+117It's hard to understand why men pay higher insurance rates when you see a woman cut across 3 lanes of traffic without using a turn signal. amirite?
+485There should be a compulsory course in high school that teaches you some important life skills like how to do your taxes, managing insurance, medical aids and other utilities on a budget, etc, amirite?
-1They estimate 12% of drivers don’t have auto insurance in the US. Why don't they take steps to fix this? More
+786If women are worse drivers then how come men are a higher insurance risk? amirite?
+169So it's okay for the government to ask you to prove that you have health insurance or be punished, but it's not okay to ask someone if they are here legally and then punish them if they're not? amirite?
