It isn't Universal Health Care, it is Mandatory Maximum Health Insurance Policy.
It will do the same thing that mandatory auto insurance did, raise the cost of auto insurance 10X.

It would be nice if they allowed policies to cross state lines and let people build their own plans. Instead they have mandatory coverages. My state mandates that my insurance covers Mammograms, masectomies, and breast augmentation. I seriously doubt that I will be getting any of those procedures.

Yup. It is only to make Insurance Companies more money.
It would be interesting to know how many politicians have Insurance companies in their stock portfolios....and Insurance lobbyist money in their Swiss bank accounts.

Sorry to butt in but we have free Healthcare for everyone here and it's great, especially for the poorer demographics. America should definiely have something like Medicare, imho.

Not gonna happen. The reaction we've seen here is a good indication.

Americans have actually been convinced that, although government-supplied police, fire and emergency services are good, government-supplied health care is bad. They resist it at every turn.

The power of groupthink.

I pay a total of $7k a year into SS alone.
My own retirement plan which will yield 5X as much in 1/4 of the investment time is $8k/yr
My own Medical Plan (HMO) which pays 100% of everything is $1K/yr

Yep. People will generally believe whatever "their" political party tells them to believe. Much like religion, isn't it ?

It certainly seems that way. Brazil is even worse, a few years ago my cousin died of Meningitis because my Aunt couldn't afford the vaccine. Meningitis ffs!

What makes you think that I agree with government supplice law enforcement, fire and emergency services? There is such a thing as a volunteer fire dept. Hospitals can provide emergency services which can be covered under a private health plan. As for police I would prefer a well armed and trained community watch group over that of a gang of thugs payed with stolen money that think that they have more rights than those that they are menat to "protect and serve".

Sounds to me like a whole range of new subjects.

You remind me just how glad I am that I moved to the UK some years back.

I just do not like the government taking my money to pay itself so that 20% of what they took could go to actually paying for the service that it was supposed to provide.

This works much better.

S.S. pay in $300,000 (over 45 years) and get $120,000 (over 10 years (ave.)) back.

The worst retirement program ever.
