ITT: Conclusive proof that americans are mentally retarded.

Personally, I think it should be repealed. Not because of some bullshit socialism argument, but because I like the idea of idiots having to choose between food and medical attention. They deserve it for being so moronic.

This is almost as bad as the people who said the Japanese tsunami was God's revenge for Pearl Harbor.

While yes... Mr. Obama was raised and successfully inculcated into the Fabian ways, and yes, he is not smart enough to do much more than read what he's told to read off of the teleprompter, the average "American" that DH refers to (he does understand that Canada is part of North "America" right?) is just pissed because somebody told them that their side should be pissed. It's certainly not because they have even a passing familiarity with the Constitution of the United States, or most especially, any understanding of the "Commerce Clause" of Article 1, Section 8. Probably 95% of them couldn't find it in a library with a gun to their head.

This is all part of the orchestrated designs of the rulers to keep the sheeple distracted and divided while they carry on fucking them in the ass. They should be scratching there heads and asking why the healthcare industry never cried about the bill, or why the Supreme Court decision resulted in their sector of the stock market scam attracting billions more in capital since. Of course that would require that they have developed some semblance of critical thinking skills that they have ever increasingly been "educated" to ignore. Rockefeller's "good workers" are not the type to think, they are the type that have little else to fill their lives but endless toil, broken up by little bits of NASCAR and NFL distractions, and sotted in pissy fizz, whilst they point fingers at any and all that they don't understand screaming "illegal" or "terrorist".

The "system" that controls and rules us works quite well, and none of it is the result of anything as altruistic or idealistically random as democratic choices or the will of any of the proletariat. Everything that they allow to happen occurs for a very specific reason, and none of it is ever good for us. They have their club of corporate sociopaths who are no more socialist than I. What they are is fascist, and the entire healthcare debacle is just another not so cheap trick to keep the kids looking the other way while the pervs fondle their junk. Anybody want some free candy? How about you little girl?
It's all the same fucking thing.

The issue with the Swiss and Germans is that they have at least attempted some semblance of a fiscally responsible approach to socialism (an economic oxymoron), but the underlying corporate fascist control is never really far from exposing itself. Nothing happens in those countries either that their corporations aren't being served or protected in some greater sense every time their serfs are tossed a bone.

None of this has anything at all to do with caring for anyone's health. It's beyond irony.

First right thing you've said this decade.

Americans feel so 'entitled'.
Why is that?
Entitled to unaffordable healthcare, to ridiculously cheap energy costs, to force other cultures to become consumer societies.

Try the British National Health Service for an example. Long waiting lists for appointments with specialists, longer waiting times for treatment and either old crumbling hospitals or modern badly built hospitals that are falling down, but it's FREE.

Any country has an obligation to provide it's citizens with complete, basic health care.

The emphasis being on 'basic'.IMO that means essential medicine costs, hospitalization costs.
If people want 'extra' they should be prepared to pay for it or pay for private insurance.

Doctors should be forced to stop overtreating and over prescribing by law.
Doctors need to become government employees, be covered by gov't malpractise insurance and not allowed to accept any presents from pharmacutical companies.
