    Worked fine in Massachusetts, but watch the costs triple once the South and Southwest states are forced in. Not to mention wait times for a dr. appt. will be about 6 months to a year unless the Dems have a secret “doctor tree” they’re not telling us about.

    Wasn’t ‘Obamacare’ based on Gov Romneys Mass health care plan?

    We should have universal healthcare in the USA like all the other industrialized countries have. It’s a disgrace that we don’t.

    Education (especially for doctors) should be FAR more affordable. There are plenty of damn good nurses out there who should be medical doctors, but couldn’t afford med school. You have for-profit insurance companies, for-profit schools, and for-profit hospitals here…you REALLY think that’s a good idea?

    We need a way to get the education to those who are both able and willing to take up medical professions.

    Yes. Obama wanted single-payer, but knew he couldn’t even propose it, so instead he proposed a nonprofit (but self-paying) insurance company backed by the government. The so-called free-marketers didn’t dare threaten the insurance industry by having, you know, ACTUAL competition (despite “private industry is more efficient than the government” bushwah), so he went with Romney’s plan, which was praised to the heavens by the GOP a few years ago.

    “Not to mention wait times for a dr. appt. will be about 6 months to a year unless the Dems have a secret “doctor tree” they’re not telling us about.”

    And why would that happen?

    @Jase99 I did some cursory research on this, and It seems to be a fact of life with socialized medicine. Some of the sites used the median wait time instead of the mean. (usually a technique to hide how bad the numbers really are) They also break down their numbers into emergency, acute, chronic, etc. categories. Good hunting!

    Let me explain supply & demand. Take X number of doctors, add XXXXXX number of patients. Only so much time to go around. Got it now?

    Obama’s is a mirror on one side and a teleprompter on the other.

    Let me explain the free market to you. If there were more doctors the patients would have more choice and the price would fall. But they want to keep medicine as a gild to keep the price up.

    Ask your friend how well it was working during the influenza outbreak of 1999-2001, when I was working in Manchester. 21,000 people in the UK died from the flu and the wait time to see a doctor exceeded 72 hours.

    We have wait times like that now if you don’t have the proper insurance. I have a scar from a bullet wound from when I was seven. They weren’t able to stitch it because I spent 13 hours in the emergency waiting room waiting to see a doctor. The infection had set in by that time, and now I have partial blindness in my left eye as a result.
    My insurance prevents my wife from seeing an endocrinologist for her diabetes, because they will not cover the endocrinology clinic in our state. Wait times for specialists can exceed six months now. I even have a three month wait time to see my own doctor, so I generally go to the emergency room and he does the follow up. I would love to have something as efficient as the British system.

    I’d like to see your source on this.

    Flu outbreaks overwhelm our system, too.

    This can’t be said enough: Obamacare was the conservative alternative to a national, single payer.

    In ten years, we’ll see Republicans campaigning as ‘Defenders of Obamacare’.
