We had a health care system long before Obama turned it into a health care tax system. I'm not saying it was great but it sure was a lot cheaper before Obamacare. Do you know anyone that didn't have their health care at least double if not triple during his presidency? Don't worry though I am sure somebody you like better will be in office sooner or later to help us all toward socialized medicine and a universal living wage.
PS The ACA is still going strong, drumpf and the republicons have failed at killing it but they did decrease rich peoples taxes, go figure.
Keep drinking the kool-aid and make sure to only get your news from Fox Noise/Britebart.
Too funny, I don't watch Fox nor do I watch any of the channels that I'm guessing you're watching. I know most of what I know about Obamacare from experience. I see it on my check every two weeks. I will take what you say on faith and assume that we must be on the other ends of a few spectrums. Can't say that I am happy for you (or your friends) paying a tenth of what I pay for the same coverage. Now why is that? Going out on a limb by what you have just stated that must mean I am making ten to twenty times what your friends (and you) are making per month. WTF! That would mean you are actually working in some sweatshop in China? Are you? If I do the math... divide my wage by ten... shit, you must be in a third world country working for damn near nothing?
Seriously though, please, research Venezuela. I know they don't even show that part of the world on the map let alone talk about what is happening there currently on those channels you're watching. Just in case you are still not up to speed on socialism... it doesn't work.
The company I work for now pays just shy of 2k a month for my health care. Just me? Yes, just me. I had to drop my wife from my coverage or be forced to pay more than twenty times what you and your friends pay per month. Of course since the government and health care industry are forcing them to pay more... I pay more. Socialism will never work. Do some research... history has proven that repeatedly.
Look I am an average guy. I am not rich. What I have in life is from my continual effort to provide for myself and my family. I've busted my ass and ruined my back working hard my entire life. My last two years of high school I went half days. I worked the other half until the lumberyard closed. Then I went to work at the pizza place until they closed. Saturdays and Sundays too. That is how I was raised. That is how I got what I have. So I don't sit here wishing that those above me on the economic ladder will miss a rung and fall off. Why would I? Again I'm no rocket scientist. I'm an average guy. Still I've known for most of my adult life that the government can not give you anything without first taking it from somebody else. But hey, keep that dream alive... Bernie in 2020!This comment was edited on Dec 23, 2017, 12:49.
