    Absolutely. It's about time we got some sort of change in our healthcare. We're the "greatest country in the world" and we have people suffering because they can't pay their health bills. Doesn't make any sort of sense.

    Re: Do you support Obamacare?

    I think it should be dumped and replaced with UHC.


    That said I believe as Obama said himself the ACA is only a step toward UHC. I suspect they made a mess of it intentionally knowing that it would get their foot in the door but end in catastrophe. They will claim that the ACA simply did not achieve all that is needed and we need to move to UHC to truly accomplished what they set out to do.

    However I believe the US government lacks the backbone to make a UHC system work here. They will largely keep our current system in place and use government funding to pay for it. This scenario in my opinion is doomed to fail. It would simply be to expensive and bankrupt our country quickly. I feel to make health care truly affordable and acceptable to everyone we are going to have to non privatize the entire system from education to clinics and hospitals. Our system being a for profit system has so many hands in play every step of the way all taking a profit. This for profit system is one of the main reason costs are so high here. Compare the cost to educate a doctor in our country and compare it to the UK, the difference is astounding. Every part of our system from start to finish is way more expensive then it need to be due to profit taking. But I just cannot imagine that our government or the people of the US would go for a government takeover of the entire system not to mention the upfront cost that it entails, trillions I am sure. I just cannot see a likely scenario where the US could have a UCH system that was affordable and acceptable to the people in my lifetime.

    When it came to "giving inches" the dems gave a lot of inches. Hell they didnt even want a short term CR but thats what they got and they gave sequester level spending cuts as well...

    I mean before one side gave in, as in, the reason the shutdown lasted as long as it did - neither side gave, so it kept being shut down.
