Do you think national healthcare is the way to go?
Considering the rising healthcare premiums, loss of jobs (including job related insurance) and the influence of rich healtch related corporations over governemtn policies, do you think private health care should exist. I think it is time to make healthcare a government provided institution. All the current serves to do is punish the poor and increase the wealth of doctors, shareholders and executives. Too bad the current American political landscape will make it impossible without a referendum or something. Yes, national healthcare can create waiting lists, and difficulties receiving timely treatment. At least you are guaranteed treatment. If you agree let me know, or let me know why not.

If you want no health care, it is the way to go. Wait 5 months to see a doctor and 9 months for an operation---hope you can care for yourself in the mean time.

It's "the way to go" if you want to go broke. Who do you think is going to pay for it? You and me unless you don't pay your taxes.

How do you think we will pay for this National Health Care program? One way of doing this straight from Obama's mouth is Preventive measures. This means that we will be governed on what we eat how we exercise, drink, and smoke. Now if you break the rules in any game you are thrown out. Just as this will work to. So I... More

No, I do not agree. The government should not be in control of our healthcare. There are private plans out there that are low cost...or at least reasonable cost, mine is 120. per month and that's private, Not from an employer. It is worth every penny to have quality healthcare and not some government official in charge... More

Have you seen what a mess the VA hospitals and medicare are? Do you seriously think the government would be able to do a better job? Sorry don't want the government in my health care.
Answered By: Low Gear - 2/3/2009
No we already have programs that are similar and they are bankrupt. Expand that and you'll bankrupt the entire country.

Once again, no. I do find your entitlement attitude interesting. Health expensive, no jobs, so lets have the government pay our way. Don't worry about the fact that the government is broke and does not have the money, just print more and borrow the rest, who cares as long as you get something for free. While we are... More

No country with the population of the United States has a national heathcare system. I want to say yes, but I don't see how we could make it happen.

Go to a VA hospital if you want a good taste of government health-care. If that was the only form of health-care in this country I would be a supporter of assisted suicide.

There should be some form of national healthcare along side private health insurance. We shouldn't have an either or system like in Canada. The two can exist at the same time even though it'll piss off the insurance companies and people who want to completely nationalise it. People say it'll bankrupt the country, but... More
