Virtually all advanced countries have comprehensive health care systems, e.g.
Canada, Britain, Norway, France, Germany etc. They have such because the only
way to run health care economically is to have a unified system for all, where
all share in health risks. This Obamacare tries to do. Obamacare could be a
lot bettter, but it is the best we could do in a lobbyist run system. Without
Obamacare forcing shared risk, medicare for seniors will become unsustainable.
Oh, and BTW, the tea party, i.e. Paul Ryan, have made no secret of their desire
to end medicare.
I agree with ljeppsen...and there was a time that Medicare was similar to
Obamacare. People thought it wasn't a good idea to have this
"government run" Medicare! It has come a long way, but still has
it's problems. Obamacare is giving citizens coverage that otherwise
couldn't have it. Seniors are not the only ones to get sick....
One health care system for everyone. No insurance companies, or employers, need
Thanks for addressing ignorance and misinformation about Medicare. Sorry you
had to perpetuate ignorance and misinformation about Obamacare to do it.
