    Everyone in MA is covered and has access to healthcare, that is universal. How it is funded is irrelevant. Universal Healthcare is about access, not funding.

    No, most are. Not all. And how it is funded is part of the definition.

    a health insurance program in many countries other than the United States that is financed by taxes and administered by the government to provide comprehensive health care that is accessible to all citizens of that nation.

    I highlighted for you. Does that help?

    What it helps show is how out of touch with reality you really are? There aren't any taxes in this healthcare bill? The Govt. doesn't set up exchanges? All people in MA aren't covered?

    You really are clueless and unfortunately aren't alone. It is pointless to argue this point with you as you apparently are certifablly hopeless. Keep digging your hole deeper.

    People in the US can also not afford US health care costs. That is the whole point of needed health care reform.

    If Costa Rica can afford a UHC system rated with better outcomes than that provided in the US, than we can afford it as well.

    Goes to show how far to the right some in this country are that they think the conservative idea of health insurance mandates is socialized medicine.

    Perhaps a trip to Costa Rica with the entertainer that recently boasted he would go there would open their eyes.

    90% of Americans can afford healthcare in this country, a fact that you ignore. You want so badly to buy what you are being told and for what reason? Do you have healthcare? Or is this typical of people like you the false claim that you truly care about someone else. If you truly cared you would apply tough love and generate results. Nothing liberals do create positive results but do create dependence.

    Stop comparing this country of 308 million to a country the size of Costa Rica. That is disengenuous and just shows eactly who you are.

    The number of people in this country that support this POS legislation is decreasing so tell me what you know that they don't? what happens if you are wrong?

    Please pay attention and look at the facts.

    I know. But I doubt it would help.

    I have looked at the FACTS, but you seem to not understand the difference between a fact and an opinion. Not sure what is wrong with you but you certainly have a problem with reality.

    You offer opinions and I offer verifiable facts. You don't know the difference. I asked you what happens if your opinions are wrong and you divert. Answer the question or run as usual.

    Why don't you take the trip for us and then tell us how great it is?
