    I like Bernie but I do not like her one bit. I would enjoy seeing her fail miserably in a presidential primary though.

    I have no control over where or who my money goes to. Maybe some of it goes to a good cause, maybe some of it goes to a person with a problem due to a vice. Do I have a choice? Nope.

    Look at this article from cbc (I live in Canada): http://www.cbc.ca/news/health/alcohol-hospital-admissions-1.4172091

    It states that in 2016, there were more hospitalizations due to alcohol related conditions than heart attacks.

    Also from the article:

    "For instance, in 2014–2015, the average cost for hospitalization that was entirely caused by alcohol was estimated at $8,100, compared to the average hospital stay for other causes at $5,800. That's mostly because of longer stays (11 days on average compared to seven days, respectively)."

    Nice to know my money is being spent on people because they want to drink too much. Especially when I haven't used any healthcare in a decade.

    Dems and Reps both want big government bullshit, they just want all the credit for starting something and pass the buck when it fails.

    Shut up. Im making good points and you are just talking shit. Both those guys have always towed the republican line and often get scapegoated because no one is pure enough on your side of the yard and Ryan is in an impossible position with the things republican voters believe vs what he can actually pass because most of that shit will be insanely harmful if you actually do it and hes well aware of it.

    I am positive that a working class man with a family such as yourself would benefit greatly from a solid national plan and yet you act as if it it ever gets passed the government is going to come to your house and murder your family when in reality your life wouldnt change at all except for the fact that you would have more money because you were no longer being robbed by an hmo and your employer no longer has to bear the cost of a healthcare plan that is funding everything once the check clears but actual fucking healthcare.

    Also it isnt free its tax funded same as the roads you drive on cops that protect you soldiers that kill our enemies and the politicians that oppress us

    Consider yourself clued in Fam

    Comment was informed by several years worth of observations of her comments, tweets, media appearances, etc.

    I just want them to do things that will benefit the country. Preffribly at their expense. Im fed up with em always bitching and coming up with no scams to fuck up our lives while never ever throwing us a bone. Healthcare needs to get fixed we know what will more than likely do it but for reasons it never seems to happen.

    And on top of that I get to hear working class plebs whos lives would be greatly improved by such a thing whisper about it in fear due to the amount of propaganda out there and its just all very irritating to me and im tired of it. We shouldnt even be having this debate we done shoulda fixed this way back in the 90s and moved on to the next thing

    Nothing. Gunny just doesn't like the fact that she's a minority woman.

    Yep. It's pointless to even discuss it without the numbers. This is just grandstanding or if you're more charitable a statement of principle.

    Are you aware of the history behind the ACA ?

    Richard Nixon proposed something similar back in the 70's and the Heritage foundation (the right wing think tank) backed a similar plan that many prominent republicans championed in the 90's

    The ACA was an attempt to gain bipartisan support , most dems wanted universal , this was compromise

    These idiots in Washington have no idea what they are doing, which is why they need to be in control of as less as possible.

    Im sure they can find a real live grownup that can implement such a policy after it is enacted while they play their power games and rip us off

    Come on. The ACA was brilliantly designed to deal with real-world issues, including political constraints. You can criticize it all you want, but this kind of comment just betrays a total lack of knowledge. This is classic Dunning-Kruger.

    Good. About time America starts catching up to other countries in the health care department. #MakeAmericaGreatAgain (for real, not that Trump bullshit)
