    In Germany most dentists are private practices. But they are nevertheless free for the people to get their dental check and get necessary dental work done.

    Not cosmetic dental work though.. That still has to be funded privately.

    Find a good-functioning universal healthcare law in Europe that belongs to a federation -> Germany.
    Copy-paste it entirely and then just modify the names of the states. From Thuringia to Virginia. From Saxony to Kansas. From Hesse to Texas, etc. And make 50 of them. Then pass it.

    Republicans would be happier because universal healthcare in Europe is cheaper than in the USA. Germany is in the top 10 countries in the world in terms of healthcare and it costs HALF of what healthcare costs in the USA and it's ranked much better.
    Democrats would be happy because they'd learn how to read and write a successful piece of legislation.
    Obama would be happy because he wouldn't have to deal with Congress for another debt limit dealing during his term and the people would be happier because of 2 reasons:
    a) congress would actually DO something
    b) they'd get better healthcare.

    Ideally I'd say copy France's. Those frog-eaters have been in the top 3 with a preponderance to be #1 in healthcare for 20 years now. But they're a unitary state, not a federation, and trusting Congress to implement that law for a federation is too risky and too demanding, considering the intellectual capacity of 90% of Congress.
    Germany has a fantastic healthcare system in my opinion. And one of the most innovative and efficient ones as well.


    I am for open healthcare. And I am happy the US is taking steps in the right direction on this.

    Hehe, or perhaps they are just evil because they are profit seeking monsters.

    What does open healthcare mean?

    Secondly, the US is not going for universal healthcare with obamacare. All obamacare does is make people who don't want to have private insurance get private insurance and up the premiums on those who already have it. It does one good thing and that is allowing people with pre-existing conditions get healthcare. But that one good thing is drowned by all the bad thing it brings. What good is having insurance if you're going to go broke PAYING it. Before you went broke if you had to go to the hospital and didn't have healthcare, now you're going broke before you even get to the hospital.

    It's not universal healthcare. It's mandatory insurance. And that means that private insurance corporations will make a killing.

    I agree, but it is a good first step. The US just need to end the closed door policy and the huge bills to private individuals to attend to their health.
