    Is your father a corrupt politician bending over Americans and ****ing us up the ass?

    Nobody here is interested in your personal drama. Take it to Dr Phil.

    Well, as a matter of fact... yes. Try to guess which one he is.
    Go look at her picture in the photo thread and try to guess. He looks just like her, except old, and male, and politician-y.


    So now do you wish death on him?

    Eh. Democrats won't give up their system and Republicans won't apply their privatization mantra to their system.

    If either party really gave a **** about the American people, they'd agree to be covered under the same plan. That won't EVER happen. At least in my lifetime.

    Actually, NO. I wish your father a speedy and full recovery.

    If however, your father, like my liberal brother is 100% for this Bobo Care stupidity, then I also hope he gets all his treatment prior to this stupidity being approved. If your father had this cancer under the Bobo Health Care plan, in all likelihood he would die and not die well. Sad that you and your father can not or will not see this.

    My Liberal brother up in Iowa had a recent scare with a heart problem. The doctor up at Mayo said it was a good thing he did not delay his treatment, for at the time of the operation, he, the doctor, said my brother was within two weeks of a fatal heart attack. The sad thing is that if this had happened under Bobo Care my Liberal brother would be dead. He too, will not open his eyes and mind to a critical review of Bobo Care and see that, as in the case of your father, Bobo Care would kill him.

    p.s., Senator Dodd does not care about my brother or your father. so long as he, Dodd, has his private insurance, the rest of the country can just go to hell.

    What are you guys on about?
    Every other industrialized nation besides the US already has some form of universal health care.
    And according to WHO and other reputable sources, citizens of every other industrialized nation in the world (and a few developing ones) also have a higher median life expectancy than the citizens of the US do. The US also has higher infant and maternal mortality rates than any other industrialized nation.
    These are the classic yardsticks by which a country's health care system is measured: how many infant deaths per 100,000. How many maternal deaths per 100,000. And what is the median life expectancy of the nation's citizens?

    Every other industrialized nation has universal health care already in place, and for all their alleged problems, they're kicking our asses when it comes to protecting the health, longevity, and quality of life of their citizens.

    It is simply doltish to ignore such statistics and what they're telling us.
    I was uninsured my whole adult life, up until last year. My husband's still uninsured, and always has been. My older son is now uninsured too.
    I have insurance now, but nearly a quarter of Americans don't, and I don't want it at the expense of all those other Americans.
    I want everyone to have medical care, even if I have to have less, even if my entire family has to have less.
    My father, who is insured and chronically ill with diabetes, feels the same.

    All I can say is that I sure hope his diagnosis is accurate and that his doctor isn't just out to make an extra Buck off of Dodd's diagnosis.

    Which is precisely why our system is better than theirs.

    And according to WHO and other reputable sources
    The WHO is not reputable. That report that all of you greedy Socialists like to point to has weighted rankings that have nothing to do with health care quality whatsoever.

    citizens of every other industrialized nation in the world (and a few developing ones) also have a higher median life expectancy than the citizens of the US do.
    Which has to do with a lot of other factors that don't involve health care quality.

    The US also has higher infant and maternal mortality rates than any other industrialized nation.
    That's because we count every single birth. In other nations they don't unless they meet certain criteria.

    These are the classic yardsticks by which a country's health care system is measured: how many infant deaths per 100,000. How many maternal deaths per 100,000. And what is the median life expectancy of the nation's citizens?
    Which is what makes it a flawed analysis because none of those are affected by health care quality.

    Every other industrialized nation has universal health care already in place, and for all their alleged problems, they're kicking our asses when it comes to protecting the health, longevity, and quality of life of their citizens.
    That would be your little secret.

    It is simply doltish to ignore such statistics and what they're telling us.
    I'm not the ignorant one. Look in the mirror.

    I was uninsured my whole adult life, up until last year. My husband's still uninsured, and always has been. My older son is now uninsured too.
    I have insurance now, but nearly a quarter of Americans don't,
    That's their problem and their fault, not mine.

    and I don't want it at the expense of all those other Americans.
    Then why are you asking for it at the expense of other Americans.

    I want everyone to have medical care, even if I have to have less, even if my entire family has to have less.
    You're free to give that up if you want, but who the hell do you think you are to use the government to force everyone else to do the same? I don't want less. I want to be healthy and be treated with high quality if I get sick. Me and my family come first.

    My father, who is insured and chronically ill with diabetes, feels the same.
    Yeah, so? Is there a point?

    Maybe that is all true, and maybe it is not. (Besides who says WHO is a reliable sourse?) Now I would like you to answer for me a simple question:

    How is it that these nations can afford this natioanlized health care?

    I'm afraid it doesn't matter what you want.
    It's coming. You can get onboard, or be bulldozed.
    Those are your only two choices at this point.


    Me and my family come first.
    This is the mantra of everyone and their family (or at least, every conservative and their family).
    Don't worry. Obama has a solution: every family will now come "first".
    Hooray! Everybody wins.

    You don't have to like it. You're free to turn to alternative medicine, at your own expense.

    Higher taxes, of course.
    And rearrangement of their priorities.
    The US spends a far greater amount on "defense" and military spending each year than any other country in the world.
    Some of that, for instance, might have to be allotted to health care.
