We have reached the Rubicon and in order to cross it we have to use Single-Payer, or Medicare for All Healthcare to solve this problem. Everybody PAYS and Everybody GETS. Remove the Insurance Companies and the high cost of Drugs and there is money to be saved...
So the Republican plan is to help NO ONE
as a Christian , contribute to charities.
Dat woman in the background raising her hand is SOOOO CUUUUUUUTE X3 I just want to pinch her cheekey weekeys like an aunt does to her neice or nephew.
Just watched this bullshit, republicans are liars.Almost nothing they say can be taken at face value. They want us to doubt ourselves so that we distract ourselves, then they can get on with the business of destroying our way of life. How can they support legislation that they know is going to cause the deaths of thousands of people for lack of medical care? All for money? To be re-elected? This is wrong on so many levels it makes my head hurt just thinking about it.
Instead of fixing Obamacare; why don't we fix health care itself?Seriously, there is not reason an MRI should cost $3,000 at one place and $4,500 at another?Set regulations so that heath care providers can not profit off of the sick!
Over 250 years, the 'system' has become rigged to accommodate corruption without consequence to the point where it's uncertain that it even can be undone. as the rule of law and equal application of the law does not currently exist. We live in a Post Constitutional America. BTW, The ' partnership of Govt and Corporation, by means of corruption, is the textbook definition of fascism.
You are right. But we elect the politicians and need to focus on "They represent us!"
pretty familiar with how big pharma works the system. why the confidence in bureaucracies and politicians? Big Pharm,as a result of yuge 'contributions' , writes the legislation that politicians pass , political appointees in the bureaucracies are directed by their political sponsors to craft the rules. The system is the way it is because of that partnership. The current system is constructed to cost as much as possible, and deliver as little as possible.
That is f*cking idiocy in it's finest for. Thank you for pointing out how stupid people in america are. Have you done any research on the Big Pharma mark up on things? Most likely not. Do you need any on going medical treatments? Justify your ignorance any way you want, but don't share it with the rest of us.Why don't you share your ideas on how to begin to fix health care. Maybe you are right; remove the mark up on snow blowers. That should do it.
seriously, how can the same snowblower be $129 at one store and $179 at another? have a govt regulation that sets the price of snow blowers.
She is talking about single payer. I don't think the person answering the question understands it at all...or she just doesn't want to.
No Government, has the Right, to FORCE its Citizens to purchase ANYTHING! Let the FREE MARKET set the prices, and THE PEOPLE, make THEIR OWN DESISION! KEEP THE GOVERMENT OUT OF MY DOCTORS OFFICE!
it is because that's why they're paying the fine so when they do their taxes it's going to come up they don't want to give free money they don't want to get penalized again so they pay the fine to get medical insurance it's better like that then have this whole nation running around with diseases and viruses and we're going to kill ourselves
Average IQ of teachers is below 100. It's why they always go for the easiest degree above communication and theology. Enough of teachers unions and allowing sub I Q people to indoctrinate our children. 😂😂
The teacher's right. Republican governors who refused to expand medicaid have caused the most issues with Obamacare for the people their states and those are the states that are collapsing right now. My state, for example, is not collapsing and we have a Republican governor who actually does not support getting rid of the Medicaid expansion, which helps hundreds of thousands of people have insurance.
THIS GOP LADY IS SO DUMB. SHE IGNORED THE QUESTION. WHY ARE WE PUNISHING THE MOST SICK? WHY IS THIS LADY TRYING TO DEFEND PEOPLE WHO DON"T NEED INSURANCE WHAT IN GODS NAME IS WRONG WITH THIS LADY.
Jessi you are proceeding from a false assumption: that the GOP cares about Christians. They don't, once they get your vote then they only care about the medical, pharmaceutical and insurance lobbies. Now that they are in power, expect pre-existing conditions to come back and other coverage to go down. Remember during the Reagan Administration when healthcare was increasing in cost about 20% per year and the GOP was saying nothing about it? That's the way they like it. If you are in the middle or working class and you cast your vote for the GOP you are screwing yourself.
Republicans don't have a clue how to deal with putting together a fair, decent healthcare system for all. Most of the voting base that elected Trump are going to suffer most from the callous, insensitive policies that are soon to be rolled out by the orange haired clown. The only way forward is for the Rep Party to negotiate with the Dems to salvage what they can from Obama Care. What's there is a start just work on improving it! Baby Jesus would agree I'm sure.
the point of obamacare is for poor people who needs healthcare have access to healthcare
Imagine if we treated policing like we do insurance... When you call 911:"Please, help me! Someone's in my house!" "Ok ma'am, can you tell me your policy number?" "Oh, sorry ma'am, under the only plan you could afford, break-ins aren't included, only murders are so your neighbor can call us back in 10."
False argument Rep. People have a right to refuse.
the gop doesnt care... trumpTARDS are just mean-spirited
Get a single payer system like Canada and the civilized world. It is the only way! The rich will take care of themselves, no worries there!
Titanic have his hands up 😂
Wow the rethug woman actually made the teachers point, what the fuck?
We can't have a National Health Service for all americans because Useless Pointless US Health Insurance Corporations won't let it happen. They have bought their politicians and we're screwed. We have the most expensive per capita health care in the world yet are the only first world country to not have Universal Health Care. I paid no more out of my paycheck in England than here but here I have to spend $10,000 a year more paying Health Ins. Corporations and can still go bankrupt from med bills
We have to face the fact that too many Americans are motivated by money. Society is not going to profit monitaraly from Gov. sponsored health care. That is not the goal. The goal is to take some of the money we give the government, (like we do anyway) and provide a healthier society and better medical techniques for us, our children, and every other being on this planet. Empathy.
that public official is a idiot
Everybody having insurance is not going to happen. We have to deal in reality. We seen to always push aside human behavior. No human is going to build a hospital for free. No surgeon is going to preform surgery for free. Nobody is going to build medical equipment for free. It's just not going to happen.
anytime you've got a politician talking....you've got incompetence...
Flip Flop Trump Anti - Christ
WTF do they not know how insurance works, healthy peoples premiums go to pay sick people medical expenses, the company is betting you wont get sick, their actuary's figure out the odds to base the rates on to cover their pay outs and rake in a very healthy profit.
Not a Christian, just another Communist.
So this is something that I have never understood from Americans. I am Swedish and we have exactly your kind of health care system on our animals. So say if my dog gets a kidney stone. Operation cost 5000$ insurance pay half so it's only 2500$ and if I get a kidney stone I pay 50$ why in the F he'll do you guys chose 2500? Makes seriously no f sense
The congresswoman proposes to put facts out for the public . When people pay the tax penalty for not purchasing insurance that money is used to spread around to cover the needy so the idea of them paying a penalty has nothing to do with them having insurance it's the financial remedy for those who are not joining the system . Republicans have their BS so coordinated every word out of every single mouth speaks about access and choice access means you can't afford it choice means you get crappy coverage let's get behind some people who care about the middle class vote Democratic
The issue with the individual mandate is a) just because it is the Christian thing to do does not mean that I may be compelled to do it and b) it represents the government compelling me to enter into a contract with a commercial concern. These are wrong in America.
the yes pieces of shit politicians really need to go
.LIKE HEALTHY PEOPLE DON'T HAVE ACCIDENTS OR BECOME ILL......LOL.....THE RACIST MONEY-HONGERS JUST HAVE NO HEART, AND THEY'RE IN ABSOLUTE POWER NOW!!!!!!... AMERICA!!!! YOU'RE GOING DOWN FURTHER NOW.....
The man in the back with the orange shirt is so rude. Someone else is talking, just wait your turn instead of just floating in the back with your hands in the air.
the rules have to be changed. If you are diagnosed with cancer then you should be able to be covered thru and thru, but if you are a hypochondriac calling the ambulance ever time you hiccup once a week, then you need to be in your own healthcare pool of hypochondriacs. Also when the insurance says no, we aren't paying $60K for this surgery already performed, then there needs to be a law that says the hospital can't turn around and charge the patient. This will keep costs and hospital fraud down.
so who does she want to steal from to pay for it? oops isn't that a commandment? game, set, matchnot saying we shouldn't take care of people, but i can't stand the fake piety of some people...
it's all a scam our government got Pissed because they weren't making a profit off of Obama care
I like your videos and reports, but will it be possible to show more clips then describing them, just a suggestion. But thanks for your great effort man...
THIS IS A REAL DANGEROUS FUCKING GAME THEIR PLAYING!!!
That senator is full of shit. We live in a state run by a republican so he did not expand Medicaid. My some makes 12,000 a year but does not qualify for Medicaid because he is a single man. He went to the website and that told us to go to Medicaid. And insurance would be 250 per month on the website which he could not afford. So if he could have gotten it he would have. She is full of shit....and trying to make excuses for giving the rich more money.
Oh I think a lot of folks in congress are going to be looking for new jobs after 2018.
US is so behind in health care. Life expectancy rated 50th, Health care 37th in World Health statistics. Shame on you GOP
I am amazed the level of entitlement that most Americans have.
yes shame on people desiring help when they become ill .you are not responsible for the poor choices that led to them being unable to afford to live or exist without pain . its not like America has vast resources or is one of the wealthiest nations in the world.you haven't got time for these poor people burdening the state we have enough to deal with expanding the military to the tune of 54 billion .in reality i believe we have duty to our fellow man . i believe a person looking at oblivion does not feel entitled to help i believe that person believes they might be entitled to ask for help from a society that can easily afford single payer health care ..but then im not a total cunt .i hope you never have a child with cancer and find yourself,for whatever reason, unable to afford the care the child needs .but i guaranty your views would change if you did .and who knows you might find yourself less of a cunt for the experience.but then may be not cunt .
So did the congress lady pass it off or cancel? Get rid of stupid, lying congress people.
The fine goes to paying for emergency visits. It's not like the fine goes to nothing. It helps those who are not covered and have to goto the ER. Republicans hated free loaders and now that ACA helps bring in funds that wouldn't normally be there and prevents possibly future costs but it's still not good enough.
that dumb representative bitch. most of those who paid the fine did it because it's less per year than coverage would cost, which they cannot afford.
So this guy knows she has a lot to say and he still raises his hand and keeps it raised.
The women makes a great point and I agree her , except for one thing . It's not the fact she is a christian that makes her want to help others . It's because being kind is part of her nature . If we're honest about it we should all realize their are good people and bad people in every religion and the same goes for people who are not religious at all . If this women wasn't a christian , she'd still feel the same way .
That stupid republicunt doesn't get that most of those exempted, who chose not to participate in Obamacare, are US citizens living abroad, like me. There are millions and millions of us! We get exemption because duh, you can't use Obamacare if you live in another country, hence you're exempt. She's saying that we didn't get it because we didn't want insurance! Bullshit! We get free healthcare here in Australia, like every other developed country. Even non citizens can get it if they have the right visa. When we move back to the states, we will absolutely be participating in Obamacare. Ignorant bitch.
I just like the fact that Republicans are gunning to pass a very liberal bill. They and their dumb ass constituency don't realize that if they were told that the GOP were passing a bill to expand Medicaid, provide tax credits for health insurance and prevent discrimination based on preexisting conditions even 10 years ago, they'd flip out. Governance is not reaction to the last guy.
The Republiclowns don't even know what the rules are in Obamacare OR GOPcare. They didnt read either bill. And yet that doesnt stop them from repeating the same old lies over and over again.
We can help both groups at the same time.... right after we let all the poor people die off.
This is what happens when u vote Republican. Or when you dont vote at all (Sanders supporters).
Don't be fooled. They're trying to protect the small percentage of the rich that will have to pay taxes. That is the absolute bottom line. Obama care isn't even a traditional Democratic route to solving an issue; it's Republican-ish strategy and their still in limbo. This is about vague allegiance ego...nothing more.
people is the biggest asset that a county has. why not the government pay for it with income tax like the rest of the world..so sad to see your county in the stone ages.
Republicans don't lie. They just don't tell the truth!. Obamacare would have worked if 19 States hadn't opted out of the medicaid expansion. If ALL States had joined in it would work smoothly! republican governors intentionally didn't sign on so it would make it look like it wasn't working! Selfish, greedy repugs! When are people going to stop letting them manipulate you! WE PAY TAXES and Corporations don't!
You voted for Trump and you got dumped, deal with it. *shades on*
These rednecks voted for him...why are they crying now?? you get your so called job but you loose you or your family members life...so what??!! you win some you loose some.
We will NEVER have healthcare for all until the greedy , money grubbing , pay the CEO 20 mil a year insurance companies are no longer part of the equation.
...maybe they couldn't afford healthcare and the fine was cheaper? Maybe we need to raise the minimum wage to a living wage? Single payer system? This is ridiculous.
Ok then how Does Australia do their healthcare? maybe we really should look more deeply at how all of these other society's manage to give all of their citizens healthcare. ..
That excuse makes no sense. What a load of Bullshit. The 20 million who paid the fine are not a factor in anything. You are not going to get them into the new Trump system when insurance is more expensive. If they are young they won't buy insurance and if they are old they have preexisting conditions. They can't afford it. Just sick. Why do these con artist republicans still get elected?
It sounds like y'all miss having a qualified and ethical president.
That's a smart idea
I'm waiting for someone to say " I want the same insurance that you have, since I'm paying for yours "
slimy republican cunt
oh the premise did work, cunt. It works EVERYWHERE ELSE and most in congress are too cowardly to admit they got into politics to GET RICH. Fuck you and your pockets, when the public is so poor that they cant afford to eat, expect about half the country dragging you out of your comfy washington seats and burning you on a cross, you fucking pieces of shit
Take Insurance Away From The American People, And Give The Richest Of The Rich Billions in Tax Cuts. That Is Bullshit.
That's not true. They didn't get in because the GOP has lied about the ACA insurance from the beginning (DEATH PANELS) and the ones that don't are uninsured out of ignorance. If it's so terrible how come all these representatives that voted to take your coverage away exempted themselves from losing ACA? WE SHOULD HAVE HAD UNIVERSAL LIKE OBAMA WANTED. This current plan is based on a Romney GOP plan thanks to the obstruction for 14 months from the republicans. NOW THEY'RE Taking that $800 billion and giving it to his billionaires club buddies that have made more money in the last 10 years than the previous 40 years. Shameful lies.
THIS is a Christian; not the morons in Congress.
"Both groups" it's always about serving both groups even if their privileged, some Republicans I swear
Weren't companies able to get lengthy deferments (while citizens weren't), meaning even less money in the pool?
I'm a true liberal but I am sick and tired of liberals who can't muster up enough FACTS to offer rebuttals for the right-wing nonsense. The conservative usually grabs the mike and that's it. You see this all the damn time.Grows some balls people ! Be rude like them or you will not be heard !
The government would never give Medicaid to the public at large. The insurance companies would fold and we can't have that or will never let that happen because of the old boy network.
why am I paying for double coverage on car medical and regular medical. The gov-corp is making record profits off us.
Yes, fine aka 'tax' the working poor that cannot afford health insurance. FFFFFUUUUU
Diane Black calls the individual mandate a "fine" but the republicans put so much effort into painting it as a tax to make it unpopular. Which is it?
I'm sending this filthy bitch Diane Black straight to Hell.
Diane Black is a typical Republican cunt who doesn't give a fuck about anybody except the rich. When are people going to wake up and kick these jerks out on their asses?
That's for sure!
"It's a good thing Jesus loves you because everyone else thinks you're an asshole"
insurance for all
Let's get this straight up, once and for all. When any entity forces one to buy a product, or get fined for not doing so. It means they will collect, no matter what. I call this extortion. Plain and simple. No excuses for what it really is.Only those on the collection end will disagree. And it's evident that those people are:1. The insurance industry 2. The pharmaceutical industry 3. The Doctors4. The Hospitals
gee CNN, why don't you give a little MORE coverage of the bullshitting politician babbling discombobulation? why don't you just come out and SAY "CNN is a huge corporation and we don't want people edging out big corporations, so when our buddies the medical insurance corporations buy off polititians to keep themselves in business and ROBBING the american people in a way that NO OTHER DEVELOPED COUNTRY IN THE WORLD allows them to do... we'll just give that bought off politician ALL THE FREE COVERAGE WE CAN THROW AT HER!" our politicans are all garbage! JUSTICE DEMOCRATS!!!
Obamacare is the dumbest piece of legislation ever passed in American history. A total clusterf___!
How about if he Trump stop golfing and his kids and wife stop costing millions of dollars a week and put it to health care we all be fine smdh they don't care about us and never did I will never vote republican ever there views and hypocrisy is on another level we see all the lies but it's fine because he's white let a long he can grab women by the pussy and it's cool too he gets the blind eye with everything he says and does it show how crooked those re pubs are and another thing you can't tell a Trump supporter shit they always trying to justify Trump shit. We live in ameriKKKa people don't forget it showed this last election
Of course you have to inconvenience some people. That's exactly what the teacher said. The healthy prop up the sick.
Health Insurance is not really healthcare. why don't we focus on care
You know what would work? Medicare for all.
hey but tell the public you want 56 billion more for "offense" I mean defense, corporate welfare, bank bail outs, gas company subsidies or billions in aid to other countries example 38 Billion to Israel (not exactly an poor country at the verge of famine and starvation who is dire need of food), and many more examples. Billions wasted in illegal wars for profit......hey but thats ok we all wave a flag at that right, ....but healthcare on our dime.. fuck that..., that's going to far......wow only in AmericaMost other developed nations have some taxpayer paid safety nets for their TAX PAYERS so the same people who pay into the system also benefit from the system at one point or another. Here in the USA its like we say fuck my neighbor and anyone else but ME, as long as I'M doing good, then you and others can rot, die, starve, etc. No one stops to think that one day they might need that same safety net, or that healthcare insurance program, no ...of course not because we all are masters of the universe and no way will we ever need any form of assistance...... with that mind set lets not have taxpayer funded police, fire dep, corps or engineers, a military, nasa, municipal water facilities all those are taxpayer funded services that service everyone in the community.......fucking mental disconnect here there should not be any extra fee to us to provide us healthcare insurance it should simple be there because we pay our taxes already which is supposed to fund public programs not millionaire salaries for congress.
Answer the question, Diane Black..
I love it having no logical answer it is just laughable the way they passed the question on.hating ACA not willing to fix. insisting on replacement. these Republicans .sad
I STILL don't have health insurance, not because I don't need it, but because, even with the ACA, I can't AFFORD, it. A new car is more affordable than health insurance.
I wonder if liberals were more pissed than I was when a study came out that showed liberals donate less to charity than republicans. I am sure we were pissed about two different things. Liberals, so liberal with your money.
so the US is like. "Ya the republican party is done for, thanks to the Democrats knowing who to specifically target, and that our last 3 president candidates where all bad at their job, or corrupt." after obama. the US was like "lets just go ahead and fire off our last little bit of Republican and get it over with" *one month in with trump and the US has had it with republicans* 35% approval rating for the orange man
this is beautiful. For the first time in a republican's life, they are going to be held responsible for America. Prepare for the clusterfuck.
That teacher is very pretty.
yes he is a peace of shit I don't Like him racist bich mother fuker
To people, what is there to fix with obamacare?
