@TheCobbler,
The affordable health care act was to designed to fix a problem that didn't exist. And of course it made healthcare unaffordable for many more people. Besides premuims, Deductibles, copay and patient' portion of costs have increased dramatically. The U.K. Warned us not to get into a national health care system. Theirs has driven inflation and kept wages low for years. In fact, the U.K. Would not have been able to afford their health care if it wasn't for the U.S.

The quality of care decreases so too. Long waits for surgeries, much more red tape etc. my friend the Canadian waited six years for knee surgery. She was in agony and could no longer work. The average American can have the same surgery in less than six months.

Senator Chuck Schumer was live.

Announcing new legislation – The “No Hearing, No Vote Act” -- to hold Senate Republicans’ feet to the fire and require that any legislation going through the fast-tracked reconciliation process, such as the Trumpcare bill Republicans are currently drafting in private, have at least one committee hearing and be reported out by at least one of the instructed Senate Committees before the full Senate is permitted to consider it.

@cicerone imposter,
What Medicare pays for your doctor visits is what has driven the cost up for everyone. When everyone is on "Medicare" our taxes will be sky high just like every other country with nationalized healthcare.

Don't forget the 600.00 hammer. When there is only one supplier to choose from The People have NO power.

I don't understand why this generation feels so insufficient. Is it because you were raised in daycare by divorced parents?

Clearly you have no idea of what you are talking about. Helathcare costs in the other developed countries per capita are half what we pay. If their taxes are higher, which is debatable, it's got nothing to do with healthcare.

Taxes have nothing to do with healthcare? Pass the blunt, that must be some good stuff. WOW I can't believe you said that out loud. Just typing it must have be very hard.

@MontereyJack,
Who do you think D45ist used to be? Sounds very familiar in an unhinged sort of way.

Knee surgery waits in Canada are ... right now ... about a month - sometimes less.

Two of my dance friends have had knee surgery less than three weeks from meetings with the surgeon (and those appointments were about a week from the meetings with the g.p's who made the referrals)

@MontereyJack,
Taxes pay for a number or different things, and if their taxes are higher, which is questionable, it is not because of healthcare, which actually costs them considerably less. We pay far more per capita and get less benefit from it than covernment unoverseen healthcare.

@MontereyJack,
Yes, we have tax handouts planned for billionaires who pay no taxes, paid for by young adults so the elderly can be charged more for healthcare. (cynical)

You have been reading the fake news, published by the very same conservatives who have decimated U.K. health care for the last umpteen years by stealing from the healthcare system and furnishing the stolen revenue to the elites.

We in the U.S. cannot be denied insurance for pre existing conditions and we cannot be thrown off insurance when we get sick... Thanks to the Dems.

What exactly is your problem with that?

@TheCobbler,
From THE HILL:
Quote:
The quality of the USA’s healthcare ranks last among the top eleven richest countries. We’re not getting better quality of care despite the expense. A major indicator of quality of healthcare, the USA has the second highest maternal mortality rate among high-income countries, and the rate in Texas recently doubled. Of course, some of our providers, capacity and innovation is truly enviable; but overall, we’re not better off despite the costs.


From my personal experience of spending about one week in the hospital for kidney failure, I felt I received the best medical care. As a senior, my cost was about $100 per day, a real bargain.

We live in Silicon Valley, and our hospital, Kaiser Santa Clara, is only one block from where we live. Many of the staff including doctors and technicians were trained at Stanford and USC.

After being on dialysis, I'm back to 44% kidney function.

@TheCobbler,
I didn't read it, I lived it. Half my family (by marriage) and many of my friends are Canadian. I can compare tit for tat. 76 yo Canadian woman colon cancer is told too old for treatment. Dead. 78 yo American woman gets surgery and chemo. 7 years later is fine and still works.

3yo child broken arm waited 6 hours in Canadian re for treatment. That would never happen here.

Canadian relatives cannot believe how cheap it is to live in U.S.

You are the one with the false info.

Many people in the US are told they are too old for surgery.

It all depends if you have strong enough vitals to survive surgery.

Your "stories" of healthcare in Canada are simply deception.

Yes someone can also wait for 6 hours here in the US with a broken arm, especially if the emergency room is treating a busload of kids who went off the road, brain injuries come before a broken arm.

I personally waited four hours once to get stiches when I tore nearly the entire top of my finger off. The emergency waiting room was packed at the time, it look like a war zone.

What you are saying is simply crap...

Yea, fake news.

Skew a few details and you can make an apple clearly seem like an orange.

It is round, it has seeds, it is a fruit it must be an orange...

I’ve read the Republican “health care” bill. This is blood money. They’re paying for tax cuts with American lives.
