I agree-- ACA does not go far enough.<quoted text>I'm not a big ACA supporter, because I don't think is does enough, but it is a start.
I like the fact that big insurance can't turn you down because of preexisting conditions and I can cover my kids until they get though school but I'm afraid it isn't much good otherwise.
I'm more of a socialized medicine person.
But I feel that our education system is what needs to be scrapped first and it needs to be socialized. Education and health problems is what is going to cause us the most problems going forward. But most people are me now thinkers, and aren't looking down the road at where we are headed.
Karen thinks the same way, but the problem I have with her is that she treats her employees like crap, and has even admitted it. If she is going to talk the talk, she needs to walk the walk.
I'm a registered Independent, but I'm Union Blue thru and thru.
But, again, it's a start.
I think that basic healthcare ought to be free for anyone who's human-- that ought to be the single criteria-- human, no questions asked.
Sadly, there are too many folk who are greedy to their last breath-- they got theirs (usually by inheriting it--not by anything they actually did) and to hell with anyone else.
As for our education system? Yes-- it's messed up, but it *is* basic socialism. And it's a damn sight better than a for-profit system would be.
For profit has it's place--like selling cheezeburgers or automobiles.
But it has no place in medicine or education-- those ought to be free to anyone who asks.
