Nine Thousand Dollars For A Bandage

Post  News Buzzard on Sat Aug 09, 2014 12:38 pm

This article sums up what's wrong with healthcare in this country. The default position of the Republicans is to blame Obama for everything, but in the end the entire system needs reform:

That is exactly what we have been trying to tell YOU, NB. The whole system needs reform! Obamacare does nothing except make some pay for the health care premiums of others. This is not reform, this is another welfare program. Glad you finally agree with us!!!

Not so fast, WHL. I don't agree with you at all, and the Republicans have never come up with a solution. The old tort reform, buying insurance across state lines routine is tired and old news. My idea of reform is single payer, like Medicare, because Medicare has been working for 50 years. In the meantime, I think Obamacare is a vast improvement in our healthcare system which will eventually get us to a global payment system, where hospitals can't charge 9 grand for a bandaid!

Exactly but it will not get any help from the Repubs, only bitching about the flaws and no solutions or willingness to come together on workable "fixes"...just constant bitching but offering no help? We all know why that is, the "sacred cow" insurance industry would have to reform and that's not going to happen when most of our politicians are taking money from insurance giants....and we won't even go into the price gouging of the all-mighty pharmaceutical co's!

Exactly, Red. The only thing we are blaming Obama for-and all the rest of them for that matter- is not fixing the problem.

H-E-L-L-O.....how can the problems be fixed when one party has voted 50 times to repeal it???????????????????????? Which is it, "fix it" or "fail it", time for your party to quit acting like losers on the playground.....  decide which works best for our country!

No, you are totally wrong on this one. OBAMA got the law her wanted passed and the Republicans did NOT block it! The trouble is, his law-Obamacare- is not what we needed!!! It did nothing good. You cannot blame the Republicans on this one.

Over 10 million more people in the country have health insurance now! How did Obamacare not work? The Republicans have tried to block Obamacare at every turn, WHL. They came close to blocking it when Scott Brown got elected. They took it to the Supreme Court in 2012, they're in court right now over it because of a typo, and they tried to repeal it more than 50 times. How about trying to fix the quirks? Every new law has them.

Obama can take executive action on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, NP. If he tries to do so on the other 4 days the Republicans sue him. Don't you know how it works??  Very Happy
