Americans do. Unfortunately, Republican liars, corporate thieves, and the insurance industry cartel have conspired in one of the biggest propaganda machines since the Nazis and The Big Lie. Indeed, Goebbels himself would have been proud of them. They took an idea with 70% approval, lied continuously about it for months on end with the complicity of Fox 'News,' and managed to convince Americans ON MEDICARE that 'socialized medicine' would deprive them of care, even though that's what is providing most of their care now. It was an astounding thing to watch, and now that corporations have been granted free speech rights and the right to buy elections, I hate to think what will happen. Now multi-national corporations based abroad can pour billions into our elections in order to buy policies that will ensure our continued economic enslavement. I actually heard one of the right-wing talkers talking about 'union scum' being the biggest threat there is to our democracy. That really scares me.
I have health insurance through my employer, can't afford to use it. $500 deductible before they pay for anything, and 75% reimbursement up to $4000. I only make $11 an hour, and pay about $1/hr for insurance, how the hell am I supposed to afford that and still eat or have a place to live? So I will probably be dead from prostate cancer in a couple of years because I can't even afford the biopsy.
EDIT: All you jackasses that give me a thumbs down obviously don't have to live through it. Another case of the 'haves' saying 'too bad' to the 'have-nots.' I have news for you - I bet I work harder than you do.
