I agree America has fantastic Hospitals, Doctors, and Nurses which are second to none.Oh man, oh man, oh man...OMG!!!!
Why people don't investigate how health care system is working for Canadians and Europeans.
University hospital, one of the best in the country, where I'm the patient and my family...talking about how people are coming from Canada looking for treatment in U.S. when it's too late...they wait for 6 months and more for a treatment ...when you finally get it, it's to late for you...in Europe, if you are over 60 and see a doctor for a surgery like hip, knee, etc. they laugh at you...if you go for a surgery, you have to bring caterers with you...no one calls for ambulance. Doctors have too many patients and if you need help, you have to bribe a doctor. Doctors have to listen to their government or will be penalized.
There is NO such thing to "bring you back", if you die ...even young... when they see in American movies how nurse will bring you in the wheelchair to your car, they say...we thought that was only in the movies ...Please people don't destroy something so beautiful ...
On Obama and his association with Bill Ayers, Rev. Wright, Frank Marshall Davis/Obama's hero and a mentor, Saul Alinsky, Louis Farrakhan / Nation of Islam, did I forgot anyone? Obama saw his father twice in his life...Obama has his father's DNA...a low life ...Obama's mother was a "leftist"...Christia n woman from Kansas married twice to a Muslim ...Obama talking about doing drugs and drinking heavily in college..."really good example" for our youngsters ..."if any bum like Obama can be a president, I can be too"...
Enough ...please ...I don't have patience for ignorance! When he BOWED to Saudi King, I lost it...I was embarrassed ...when I called my family and friends in Europe, they asked me..."WHAT WAS THAT ALL ABOUT"...how can you support something like that...I DIDN'T NOT!
But our cost are much higher worldwide than any other country.
Single Payer Medicare For All, would have lowered our cost.
Obama and the two Democratic Senators from New Jersey killed it.
Who's Blocking Health Care Reform Now? Blue Dogs? Senate Dems? House Progressives? Or the White House Itself?/ Obama is not liberal

Anyone who can add knows Republicans are not blocking universal health care. The performances of Republican teabaggers at a few town halls notwithstanding, there are just not enough Republicans in the House and Senate to block anything. The president and his party can roll over Republican opposition any time they want to.
Blue dog Democrats aren't to blame for blocking the White House health care bills either. The political careers of many House blue dogs are the creation of White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel, who as head of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee dispensed them bags of corporate cash to win primary elections against left leaning Democrats. The interests that owned Rahm, and still do, own his successor at DCCC, so the blue dogs are White House puppies it can rein it any time it chooses.
If progressives like Donna Edwards can be blamed for blocking health care reform, it's only because they are choosing to follow the White House lead and settle for “health insurance reform” instead. The White House itself, and our First Black President are the biggest political obstacles to achieving health care for every American, along with the corporate media which controls the public debate.
