Health care system in America- the truth.
America’s health care system? What health care system. We don’t have a health care system. We have a system of if you can afford to pay outrageous amounts of money for medical insurance then you will get your health care and find out, guess what, you need insurance for insurance.
“They” say the people that cannot afford the high cost of medical insurance want something for nothing. I don’t understand how they figure if we received a government health plan we would be receiving it for nothing when we pay half of our money in taxes of some form or another. This is the reason we cannot afford their inadequate insurance in the first place.
Not that health insurance means your covered, in most cases your not covered for this that and the other thing anyway, and find out after a catastrophic illness you owe tens if not hundred of thousands of dollars.
The third biggest scam and transfer of wealth in the history of the world in my opinion is America’s medical network. It consumes Americas wealth from cradle to grave, only two other scams top the medical network, first the international bank system and second war (the military industrial complex).
Imagine working all your life and having insurance and a meager nest egg to get you through retirement with some left over for an inheritance for your children, you get sick and find out only eighty percent of this illness is covered. There is always something not covered leaving you with the only option, to spend your life savings for care, or in some cases death results and the medical network steps in and takes everything.
Should have had insurance for insurance! This is happening, many have lost everything.
“They” are saying how bad health care is in countries that have national care and how much better our care is here in the U.S. What “They” don’t understand is not everyone is well off like “They”are. Look these people don’t even know how many properties they own and are promoting buying gold, Cadillac Escallaids and bragging how “They” are on their sixth or seventh one, good for them but many are not so fortunate.
These day’s “They” would have us believe the average income for middle class Americans is in the neighborhood of fifty to eighty thousand dollars, can you say la la land?
Earth to “They” the average middle class income is around thirty thousand and after taxes and the cost of living the middle class cannot afford Cadillac Escallaids, gold or medical insurance, and the meager insurance we make ourselves afford does not completely cover us anyway, leaving us in a quagmire of perpetual debt.

Hip replacements, knee surgery etc? It is to the point now people from America are going over seas and receiving these surgeries for fifty to eighty percent below the cost here in the U.S. it is either this or suffer.
Has everyone forgotten Americans would go to Canada for care and prescription drugs ?
“They” have been on a campaign to demonize foreign health care systems, the reality is none are perfect for sure, but at least they have a HEALTH CARE SYSTEM for their tax paying citizens. What “They” are not telling you is most, such as the Canadians, ferociously defend it. Come on, what’s the alternative ? Remember “They” are professionals and experts at demonizing anything in the way of there views and agendas..
Please believe me I am like the last one who would defend a government run health care system or government run anything for that matter, but something has to be done. We, the U.S., are the only industrialized questionably civilized nation that has no health care system and with the amount of taxes we pay we should have something for the people who cannot afford three hundred dollars per person a month for insurance, that in reality doesn’t completely cover you anyway, and protection from losing everything we have worked hard for from something that is inevitable, loss of health.
The reality of this issue is “They” are protecting ultra high profit organizations from being excluded from atrocious profiteering that the average American has no way of escape.
This has forced me to have no other alternative but to agree with America not only needs to have, but must have a national health care system. It is way past time to stop the pain and suffering of the less fortunate.
The greed can be seen everywhere, where is the shame?
