Now I have asked this question over and over again and not one Libtards has had the gonads to take the question on.
I understand workman's comp but I do not understand why any business should have to contribute to any employees health care much less his spouse and children.
Let's say I go out hunting, fall out of a tree and break my leg. What does the people I work for have to do with it?
Come on now, any of you have half a brain?
And just why should we follow the other 33 OECD countries. We are a country based of individual freedom. Yes, you can reduce doctor fees and surgery expenses but at who's cost?<quoted text>
Queston is irrelevant. The US should simply follow the lead of all other 33 OECD countries and have universal health care, no premiums by employers OR employees, and funded from the public purse. And lower those doctors' rates and surgery by at least 50% immediately. Highway robbery.
You do know taxes will have to go up, don't you? Oh, increase tobacco taxes but what about marijuana? And if my religion says that abortion is wrong, why should I pay for someone else's abortion?
And then there are the One Percenters who can go anywhere and with their money buy what ever health care they want. Sure, universal health care is great for the poor as they don't have to pay one red cent so it is the middle class who will pay the majority of the bills while getting second rate care themselves.
Unless you are politically connected and then you will get POSH treatment.
Oh, do you know how the word "Posh" came about? "Port Over, Starboard Home"!!! Yep, before they had air-conditioning on ships you would want to be on the shady side of the ship. From England to India that would be the Port (left) side and on the way back you would want to be on the Starboard (right side) of the ship.
Sooo, you have First Class and then one step above that was the shady side of the ship. Port Over (to India), Starboard Home (to Merry old England).
