"I'm a Canadian and I DO NOT like our healthcare system. It's 'good' but not as good as many other nations. Waiting 4 months to JUST SEE a doctor? = not good."

As a man married to a Canadian and living in Canada I've never had to wait 4 months to see a doctor here. I make an appointment and I get serviced just like I do in the States. Not sure if you are living in some backwater part of the Country up in the northwest territories but here in Ontario I don't have those problems.

Yes the people of Canada are mindless drones under the strong arm of the government with no freedoms right?

@HG: Um, yes, we are! We're taxed MUCH higher than y'all. I don't mean 'rates' I mean the end result of PST, GST, CPP, gas tax, 'sin' tax & etc. Our "tax freedom day" is like 40 days later that in the USA.
And we're STUPID about it! Everyone figures someone ELSE will pay, not them!

I'm a Canadian and I DO NOT like our healthcare system. It's 'good' but not as good as many other nations. Waiting 4 months to JUST SEE a doctor? = not good.

"I provide for myself and my family."

You really don't probably. You probably don't pay enough in taxes to cover your family's share of the federal, state, and local government services you utilize. If you add up things like national defense, public schools, fireman and police, public roads, and all other public non-assistance programs (so not including things like welfare and food stamps which you don't use) the number is over $5T annually (If I remember correctly). That is roughly $17,000 for every person in the country.

So if you have a wife and 2 kids, your family should pay $68,000 to truly provide for yourselves. If you don't then other people are paying for the services you use.

Not trying to be argumentative, just something to think about it.

All I know HG is that a government that has the power to give you anything you want has the power to take from you everything you have. I provide for myself and my family. I'm not trying to argue with you. I see your point. It's just not for me but I won't be able to opt out. I don't need government assistance. I don't want government assistance. But under PBO I have no choice.

As for SS...I could invest that money better than the fed and as for public Ed, since the mid seventies and DOE things have gone straight to hell.

I believe in individuals free to pursue their dreams, not a bloated federal government empowered to "take care of everybody."

"There's no such thing as free health care. That's just a myth perpetrated by politicians who are willing and able to control your whole life if you're stupid enough to let them. "

Yes the people of Canada are mindless drones under the strong arm of the government with no freedoms right?

Have you ever lived anywhere else? Have you ever traveled much to foreign countries?

I have and I tend to ask people about it. I have never met a single person in Canada or Europe that complained about single payer healthcare. The people who have it like it. If we had it you'd like it to. It seems un-american to some I suppose, but so is social security and public education by that standard.

"What in the world of f*ck is wrong with free healthcare? It's great!"

Simplified explanation: Rich people in this country have convinced some middle class and poor people that really need healthcare to fight against it so their taxes don't go up.

Hahahaha. K.

The Jesus thing was COMPLETELY subjective. There is no winner in a subjective debate since it is all simply opinion.

The electoral college thing? What part was the smacking around? You said "THAT ISN"T EVEN POSSIBLE" To which I said oh gee no s.hit.

"Face fact @HG: You been PWN'D!"

I guess you are welcome to think that. I really couldn't even tell what you were talking about. I had to decode. Rims = transportation and buying health insurance = getting things free from the government.

"@HG: Food, clothes, transportation?"

Huh? Delivery pizza, rims, and designer jeans are what you are saying are food, transportation, and clothes? Those are frills and extras, not necessities.

"Those repubutards spend money on stupid stuff! They should get it all for free from the government like NORMAL people do!"

1. Most of my friends that don't have health insurance probably vote democrat. Most people that don't have health insurance probably vote democrat. This isn't a partisan thing. Stop making everything partisan.

2. I'm advocating people buying private health insurance how does that mean I'm advocating getting something free from the government?

"our money" "we do"

Are you finally admitting you aren't canadian? ;)

They sent millions of jobs overseas and then blame those same folks for being unemployed. Meanwhile they're making money hand over fist with their foreign investments and hiding it untaxed offshore while the small businessman has been shouldered with making up for the massive tax cuts they received. Small business owners; You should be on the same side of this issue as the middle class,working poor and the welfare class. As long as the wealthy continue to receive the Bush tax cuts YOU will have to carry the burden of making up the difference. If you insist on cutting welfare, corporate welfare outstrips domestic welfare several times over.And another thing,Demand is what creates jobs. Give the tax relief to the middle class and below. They'll spend it. Tax relief to big business just goes into the coffers, not into creating jobs. Big business has time and time again negotiated,through their congressional operatives,tax relief with the promise of creating jobs only to pocket the cash.

Right @HG?
You're telling us, clearly, that the Gov't knows how to spend our "redneck money" better than we do. For our own good, of course!

"So when Romney makes an off handed remark about PBS is seems kind of important but when you do it we're taking you too literally."

HAHAHAHAHAHA

Yes. A comment on a post on the internet on an entertainment site at 11pm is THE EXACT SAME as a comment made during a nationally televised debate to be the leader of the most powerful country in the world.

Awesome analogy ace.

HolyGod's greatest hits.

Obama said he wanted specifics.
Romney said he would cut PBS as one of two specific things he actually pointed out.
His biggest things are adding jobs and cutting the deficit.
He is saying he can do both by making budget cuts.
PBS is one of only two things he actually said.
How is that "off handed"
Seems kinda important to me.



If you can afford X-Box Live and Netflix you can afford health insurance.


You guys took that a little literally. I was simply saying people spend money on all kinds of frivolous stuff but not on health insurance. I named a couple. I didn't mean to insinuate that the cost of healthcare is equal to those. They were just two on a list.

People still don't realize that it doesn't matter who you vote for. There is no left and right wing. There is a central agenda being pushed by those with the wealth who have taken the liberty of dividing the people into "parties" so that they may fight over the illusion of choice. Their mission will move forward, no matter which puppet you prefer.

BINGO.

"Doctors are overpaid and they don't have to take any responsibility for their actions when they do something stupid and kill someone."
The most uninformed statement I've seen today. Doctors are always being held accountable for the smallest things they do, especially in this sue-happy society. They pay out the butt for malpractice insurance and go to college for years and years, taking on tens to hundreds of thousands in debt to get that job.

Go ahead and add delivery pizza, cable TV, beer, video games, DVDs, iPhones, designer jeans, rims, etc.

The point is, I know LOTS of people that don't have health insurance and can absolutely afford it.

I challenge you to find a plan that costs $13 a month.

The math:
Xbox Live subscription fee:
$60 per yr /12 = $5
Netflix basic package:
$8 monthly.
