    Default Tell Your Senator Not to Gut Health Care

    Republican leaders in the Senate are moving fast to pass a terrible new health care bill that would take away health benefits from tens of millions of people and allow insurance companies to charge people with cancer, diabetes and other illnesses tens of thousands more for care they need to survive. There is a chance we can stop it, but your senator needs to hear from you.

    My senator knows where I stand on healthcare..I don't know of any one on this forum that has been on Obamacare and is happy with it.. Most of you are on Union insurance..Personally I can't wait for the Republican plan.. It can't be as bad as Obamacare.. And for God's sake stop listening to liberal scare tactics.. Obamacare is collapsing all by itself.. If the Republican plan doesn't get passed just how many then will be without insurance??

    We are not on union healthcare in this household, and it costs us dearly ... every year. Our for-profit healthcare SUCKS !

    Yes it can.

    Easy to fix. We need to remove profit from our system of healthcare. It works all over the world. Why not here ?

    I have been saying the same thing for years on this site. But because I agree and support Bernie on this subject, it makes me a socialist or even a communist! What kind of system profits from people's illness on such a huge level while people are denied certain coverages or no coverage at all and are left to die from their diseases or go bankrupt from the cost even when they have paid for insurance coverage for years?

    Whether you have insurance through a "for profit" insurance company or from the government you will indeed pay for it.. It is not free as so many on here think.. People in all the so called free medical countries have "other" insurance as well.. Ever wonder why?? It is not the insurance companies as I believe it is more the providers.. Maybe the government should set pricing like they do with medicare..

    OK, that would be a start.

    Now it's only about certain people who can have healthcare, like the politicians and the elitists.

    To my knowledge the only members on these boards that were touting "free insurance" were the mouthpieces damning the Sanders plan.

    Don't we already have something similar in the form of Medicare? Tax based, and if I am not mistaken, supplemental coverage is required?

    Medicare is a insurance that most people pay "INTO" for nearly 50 years before they can start using it.. Medicare only pays 80% and although a supplement is not required it is a good thing to have.. So yes you can say it is tax based.. IMO there is no fair way to do it.. Personally I think everyone should be on medicare and for those that work let their companies pay for the supplement..
