"Universal Health Care"--a humongous lie?

People are desperate to believe that a government-run health care system will be a good thing. No matter what you assume, or are led to believe,to be true, the facts prove that the government does not run the health care programs is has now. Both Medicare and Medicaid are actually run by the same private insurance carriers who routinely deny claims for both everyone.

Update 2:

The British system is, as one would expect, reflective of British thinking: there is a class system in Britain and this could not be more evident than in the way they finance health care. They do it through a payroll deduction scheme. This means, of course, that only the workers pay for the entire cost of the health care system while the wealthy, who usually do not earn wages, and whose investment income is not subject to payroll deduction, escape.

    The idea makes me a little nervous. I have a friend in Canada who recently discovered a breast lump - and the wait was FIVE MONTHS for her to even be seen for tests! That's crazy.

    Tax payers pay for 'free health care'. While I don't think we should have a system like Euro/Commonwealth countries, something has to be done about the COST. Every American should get preventative health care. I cannot be the only American that has received a 'hard sale' at the dentist, optometrist, etc. The medical and pharmaceutical industries are like car salemans now.

    It is a well known fact in UK that the US has no national government-run health program that is comparable to the UK's National Health Service which is financed by National Insurance contributions deducted from wages and salaries

    i've got not got self belief there is any New testomony origin for the widely used salvation concept; many passages seem to point that concept in Jesus is significant to get saved. even nonetheless the belief of each and every physique getting saved is for sure very beautiful. the concept-approximately everyone enduring misery of an eternal sort is grotesque, regardless of in the event that they have been provided many opportunities to flee, as i think is the case. i think of people who argue for widely used salvation by and large argue from the revelation that God is Love in John's first epistle, and additionally shown in passages including a million Corinthians 13. so as that they are asserting how would desire to a God of affection possible reject human beings finally. even nonetheless those passages are no longer the whole of the image - John's gospel makes it very clean one does would desire to have self belief in Jesus to be saved, plenty extra so than the different gospels, and Paul's letters are very organization on the element that faith in Jesus is mandatory for justification.
