Ok I know most Americans absolutely abhor the idea of U.H.C but I want to know why? I mean say for once the government doesn't screw up royally, and they get something right? Then everyone would be insured and then I wouldn't have to be scared about getting sick or having to see a doctor and how much it will cost. Now we do have some form of health care again my mom got a job at a factory, but seriously I'm 18 I haven't been to a dentist in 6 years, I went to a regular doctor for the first time in 6 or 7 years a couple months back because I got really really sick. If you even dare think that my parents are lazy kick yourself right now. My parents work their butts off every day, I cant remember the last day my dad stayed home from his business. My dad has always owned his own car care business and he never even graduated high school. So I don't want to hear any of that well bums will be able to get the same care as me b.s. Shouldn't we want everyone to be treated equal(had a funny feeling that's what our country was founded on)? Don't you think that if the 'bums' could get proper care that they could be healthy and try to get jobs, not that there really are any to get now a days but still. I understand that we would still pay for our health care, in taxes. But then itd be taken straight out and you wouldn't think about it. Ok, my uncle for example, got into a terrible motorcycle accident, not his fault, he wasnt even moving, an 83 year old man did a U turn and hit him. Within oh a month or two if that my dad and aunt added up the costs of what they knew about and he was up to half a million dollars and rising. He has afflac but he's going to need care for quite some time. If we had UHC then people like him wouldn't have to be worried about the debt for their whole lives. He also is a terribly hard worker owning a car repair shop as well. But He doesn't worry about the debt, with the brain damage he doesn't worry about much besides remembering things. So Can someone just explain to me UHC? I don't want to hear anything form Americans, I want to hear from Canadians or anyone who has UHC Americans knowledge is tainted.
