    I just LMFAO at the absolute BULL SH!T that Americans believe about universal health care. It's not perfect but at least every citizen is cared for.

    I live in a country with universal health care and my daughter suffered a brain aneurysm. She received state of the art surgery the very next day, when swelling in the brain was under control. She received excellent aftercare and now receives regular check ups, brain scans and medication. I didn't need expensive insurance and I didn't get a hospital bill.

    The USA is #1 in expenditure per capita for health care, yet ranked 37th in the world as a health care provider.

    Is seems that the health care insurance companies in the USA have done a great propaganda job on Americans.

    Well, I've been to over 30 countries, and I can say your full of crap.

    What exactly is the low standards by which you call "working" leftie ?

    Pregnant mothers encouraged not to show up at UK emergency rooms ?

    6 month waiting periods for treatment in Canada for ailments like Cancer ? 6 months could mean the world as to whether you live or die.

    Or maybe you want to con everyone into giving up 90% of their income for the grand and excessive exploits of Sweden ?

    Don't Demonize Republicans all because they are standing in the way of this piece of crap President and are on the side of the citizens of this country. Do you moron lefties realize you've been paying for Obama care for a few years now but the major provisions aren't even going to be enacted until 2014 ?

    And what of Obama gutting Medicare to pay for it ?

    Or the various laws leaking out to the people and media which tells a totally different story than Obama's LIE's........like keeping your policy, lower premiums, keeping your doctor, etc, etc.

    Why are liberals and progressive scum so stupid they can't admit Obama is a LIAR ? Or that they were fooled with that 'hope and change' BS ? Your on a sinking ship, insisting that the captain of your Titanic was right. And if it were just you, i'd throw you an anchor and be rid of you forever, but we are all on this sinking ship and you can go F**K yourself for all the lies you've been telling and propaganda you spread to try and change the minds of 70% of the nation that said NO to Obamacare

    Just how stupid must you be to ignore the REAL news about Obamacare.

    Like the fake accounting ?

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/right-turn/pos...

    26 of 50 states (57 if your Obama) won't implement this crap legislation.

    The 21 tax increases that it calls for ?

    The shenanigans for getting it paid for, not only gutting medicare, but with fines for non-policy holders and other 'creative' fee's which can only be described as government enforced THEFT.

    The average cost to the young whom won't buy Obama care due to how expensive it is ?

    http://online.wsj.com/article/SB100014241278873246...

    Or how illegal immigrants aren't required to be covered by it, therefore it might inspire hiring over American citizens ?

    Perhaps you need to pull your head out of your (_I_) and research a little bit longer.

  • it does not work,unless you consider letting gramma die because she is too old to be revived....the old stand by of the doctor reviving a patient does not happen if they are past a certain age in countries like Britain and Canada,even if she could easily be saved...i do not want a democrat making decisions for my family,especially when they wil use the irs and any other power they have to attack their enemies...and oh yeah,...the IRS will be making those decisions,...sparky...

    It doesn't "work".

    There are tons of problems with socialized medicine in other countries. If you don't believe that, you are living in a fool's paradise.

    So you like waiting in long lines and having bureaucrats determine what treatment you get--if you get it at all?
