    It is not a "quantitative" issue. It has to do with "real income"/buying power. Tax cuts to the wealthiest are always coupled with the Republican idea that the money will "trickle back down" into the system. The problem is.....the wealthiest tend to hoard and do not reinvest and thus the money is taken out of the system, doesn't "trickle down" and as a result, real income falls. It is basic economics.

    Hospitals write off billions and then charge the rest of us to make up for it. I'd prefer we have single payer or extended Medicare for all Americans, thus reducing the write offs for those who aren't covered.

    For now, those who don't pay, but can, are dealt with via collections, trashing their credit.

    Those who can't pay also have their credit destroyed, even middle to upper middle who have hit their coverage limits with their insurance, owing to a catastrophic illness. Getting sick/hurt shouldn't bankrupt a person.

    Might be worth mentioning again that REAGAN signed the legislation that forces hospitals to accept ER patients whether or not they can pay for their care....

    Absolutely true....the Reality is that the GOP is more concerned that their base can make their supply of truffles and caviar...than they are the working Americans are supplied with basic healthcare.

    The only way what you said could be construed as accurate is if they hoard it in their walls, or under their beds.

    There is nothing basic about your view, it is ignorant populist crap.

    Right, all that spending and we get fewer employed, a reduction in labor force, lost jobs, lower economic growth, and greater debt. Thanks Obama

    And the costs of ER care is substantially higher than the cost of clinic care....which is exactly why a single-payer system makes sense strictly on an economic level.

    What I find mildly confusing is how people didn't see this coming. It was clear a long time ago that the far left had taken over the Democrat party. All the info was there as to what the President's positions would be. And yet, these fools were voted into office, first with Democrat control of Congress, then the White House. And just now the average person is getting upset and thinks they're doing a poor job? How could they not? How, with no evidence to support it, did anybody think this was gonna work? The people have gotten the government they voted for, and they had to take it in the teeth to see what it was they voted for.

    My high risk coverage goes up to 2.2 million. That might sound like a lot but when you are looking at an LVAD (roughly 400k not counting follow up) and a heart transplant (roughly 1 million first year not counting medications) one can spend those health dollars rather quickly.
