Complete overhaul, replacing old system with European-style universal healthcare.
Partial overhaul, including expansion of Medicare, reworking of profit-based insurance system.
Sparse overhaul, based around getting rid of the profit-based private insurance companies.
Nothing needs to change, the US system is good the way it is.
Be sure to work hard and get lots of overtime. People on welfare want more steaks and free upgrades to smart phones with unlimited data packages.
“If we must have an enemy at the head of Government, let it be one whom we can oppose, and for whom we are not responsible, who will not involve our party in the disgrace of his foolish and bad measures.”
- Alexander Hamilton. Spiritual father of #NeverTrump
To level the playing field, it might be a smart move for the US to tax health care products exported to other countries, and levy a tax on those coming here for the superior care.
Sometimes I think we're alone. Sometimes I think we're not. In either case, the thought is staggering. ~ R. Buckminster Fuller
USA should change Mr.Freedom identity. at least domestically
The Euro is in no danger of collapsing, despite what your fearmongers tell you -- as I said, there was an article literally yesterday on the BBC explaining how the Euro is safe now.
In your own Time magazine, there was a piece on the renewed strength of the Eurozone, and even the Economist, which is decidedly right-wing, admitted there's little danger of failure anymore.
I don't know where you're getting your information -- 2009?
Anyway, as for Democrats vs. Republicans, I can't help but laugh at what you said. Yes, in fact, I do consider 52% a majority. That's literally the definition of a majority.
The Republican Party is dying of its backwardness and older support -- and those Tea Party nuts are not helping. Texas is projected to be a blue state (Texas!) by 2030, due to immigration and urbanisation -- and if it can happen in Texas, it can happen anywhere.
You may not think of us as your brethren, just as a rebellious teenager rages at the parent, but we are the same. We speak the same languages, we have the same laws, we have the same forms of governments, the same political ideals, the same social ideals, the same religions, the same hobbies, the same enemies, and the same lifestyles.
Are there differences? Sure. Maybe I love haggis, which you would find repulsive. Maybe you enjoy shooting guns, which I would find antiquated. But our cultures, or rather, culture, is in total agreement that democracy is the way to go, and that people should have rights, and that the legal system should be fair, and that there ought be checks and balances on the government.
You say half the country hates us -- I don't think so. Why else would Europe be the Number One destination for American tourists? Why else would Americans watch so much British TV? Why else would they go absolutely insane over the Royal wedding? Why else would Americans both to learn European languages, or buy European merchandise, or read European literature?
You're a bigot, and it does not cast you in a good light. We bear you no ill will as a people, and I think the majority of Americans bear us no ill will. Why are you so hate-filled?
