Not being in debt for something unexpected like cancer happening should not be a thing Log in to Reply It isn’t “free” Healthcare. We already pay more than enough in taxes to cover it. Take away four wedding bombings by our military and we’d be golden. Log in to Reply Sort of, I don’t think it should be free, I think the us should do like what lots of other countries do where you pay for medical services through taxes, so when you do need a hospital bed, you don’t have to pay a bill on the spot Log in to Reply Universal healthcare is one thing I’d be happy for my tax money to go to. Log in to Reply I have national healthcare in Taiwan. It’s cheap and convenient, people think the US is crazy for putting up with such an expensive system. Log in to Reply I love having it. Log in to Reply If you mean a socialize health care system, I’m for it. Even though taxes go up we all stop having to pay out of our paychecks for our health insurance, which would likely have us all break even (even if you don’t meat your current deductible) and our employers get their (usually larger) share back to either invest in the business or put back into our salaries (ahahaha.) The overall cost of care should also drop because the insurance grift that caused prices to spike over the last 20-30 years goes away. The only bit I’m curious of how to tackle would be the overnight dismantling of the health insurance industry. And I don’t mean the poor sad billionaire board members, I mean the thousands upon thousands of office workers. I’m not proposing the whole broken window fallacy here but I imagine we need a transitional period to make sure we don’t trigger a mass unemployment event all at once. Log in to Reply Yes. We need to separate health insurance from employment. I don’t need a job to get car insurance. Log in to Reply No man should ever have to lose his house trying to keep his wife from dying of cancer Log in to Reply Nothing is ever free…. We always pay for it… Unfortunately, the American health insurance companies have managed to develop a system where 99% of Americans can’t afford healthcare. By saying free healthcare, you mean government subsidized healthcare, which means healthcare paid for by taxpayers. Log in to Reply It’s not free, it tax-funded, in my country is payed with contributions from employers and employees (deducted from our payroll every period) Log in to Reply Im more of “affordable health care” kind of guy. I don’t mind paying for insurance if that means when I have to go to the doctor or I have an emergency, I don’t have to worry about medical bills because the insurance will take care of everything. Having to pay insurance every payday just for them to tell you your ambulance ride, X-Rays, lab work and certain surgeries are not covered should be a crime Log in to Reply My family in Canada has had bad experience with universal Healthcare, instead of waiting a year + they came here and had the operation in a month. We prefer private insurance. Edit: I forgot to say I don’t care if you have free Healthcare, I want my private Healthcare Log in to Reply I would settle for affordable, but free is the ultimate goal. Divorce profit from the necessities of life, it has no place there in this age. Log in to Reply Yes, but it has to be higher quality than Canada’s for instance. My mom’s friend played for the raptors and said he’d always drive across the border to the USA to go to the doctor. Lines were too long and service was poor. Most likely because it was free Log in to Reply One thing we can all agree on – American healthcare absolutely sucks. Log in to Reply I live in Australia. We have universal healthcare and subsided medication. We pay for healthcare through our taxes. I earn $110k/year. Out of all the taxes I paid this year, only $2,500 went towards Medicare (our health system). I have been to hospital three times this year due to various illnesses and paid $0. I saw top notch surgeons and Doctors. It is by no means perfect and needs some reform but I’ve been able to receive great healthcare and it hasn’t sent me bankrupt. When everyone gets the proper medical attention, the nation is happier, healthier and more productive. Everyone should have it. Log in to Reply Good. Yes. Log in to Reply Only on Wednesdays Log in to Reply Ask yourselves, why shouldn’t everyone get access to healthcare for free? Log in to Reply It’s not free. It’s paid for with taxes. Yes, Universal Healthcare should be the law of the land. Log in to Reply Everyone except my enemies… Log in to Reply Yes /thread Log in to Reply Yes of course Log in to Reply I see a lot of comments about Healthcare not being free because we pay for it in taxes. Free For All. This also includes poor people who pay less than you, the unemployed, the elderly, people who have a ton of kids, drug addicts, and people who knowingly ruined their own health. You would think it would also lower your car insurance because accident victims would be covered by the government and not the insurance company. Log in to Reply And Oh yeah, Burial and Cremation should also be covered. Log in to Reply Everyone should have it, it’s not free by the way. Log in to Reply yes everyone should have it and we, the Americans, need to get these fucking insurance middle men out of the equation…what do they do? they sit in between you and your provider saying “fuck you pay me” like Paulie in Goodfellas. Log in to Reply Healthcare should not be tied to a job IMO. It’s a conflict of interest for employers to provide health insurance because it cuts into their profits. Log in to Reply Yes. Speaking for the U.S. we annually collect more than enough in Federal taxes to cover the cost. It’s shameful, really, that we don’t. Log in to Reply Should be a humanright. Log in to Reply FeelsGoodMan. Yes. Log in to Reply Yeah. The problem is healthcare in the US is overpriced. Log in to Reply It’s not “free,” it’s “universal” Log in to Reply Yes. With good taxing strategy and public-private partnerships, it is possible. Healthcare should be a top prioritized destination to public investments, alongside education. Log in to Reply If it is free for one, it should be free for all. Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
