    [quote user="DavenIII"]Also I just saw a claim recently.

    it said the average cost per month for healthcare in Mass (which has done what Obama care is supposed to do just on a state level)

    600$ Month - Average wait for an appointment 50 Days - Boston

    it was compared to Atlanta which is a more "average" health care system.

    200$ Month - Average wait for an appointment 11 Days - Atlanta

    so why is the statewide healthcare plan in Mass considered a success if it's increasing cost and lowering quality of care...and if that's the case why did Obama base his plan off that one...and is that what we can all expect for everyone once it starts being implemented on a federal level?

    I live in Mass Daven. I call my doctor at 9:00 and he can see me no later than 11:00. All the Mass. HC law does is insure the small minority that aren't insured now. It has absolutely NO EFFECT on the 95% of people who already have insurance.</P>


    My insurance is great actually. We have a low deductable and no co pay. Its because we have good insurance through the market system.</P>


    I have no idea where these numbers of yours come from. I live here.</P>


    [/quote] I've never even heard of that. That number is simply for the Obamacare he's quoting, right? I love my insurance, and my company has done a kickass job of making sure we don't get cornholed on the premiums. little to no copays, free prescription drugs basically. My one gripe is with dental coverage, but i've never heard anyone say they like their dental insurance.[/quote]</P>


    I have great dental insurance.</P>


    [/quote]

    further proof that your experience with healthcare isn't a good sample of the restof the country...

    or were u just davening?

    Now you get to be forced to buy HC insurance whether you can afford it or not. Didn't you say last year that you didn't have it because is was too expensive? Starting in 2014, you don't get to decide for yourself. You will be forced to buy insurance from private insurance companies thanks to Obamacare.</P>


    My point is that the HC law in Mass. has no effect on the 95% of residents that already have insurance.</P>


    [/quote]

    yes but, not at 125 dollars a week. Lando was the one that can't afford the insurance. Two jobs ago when I was working for a window and door gallery 7 years ago, I think I was making like 13 an hour on a 40 hour week and it would of cost me 125 bucks a week for insurance.

    This is for people caught in those situations and with the unemployment the way it is people who are out of work. So many countries do this and have success. Much like the way Daven started spilling stats of Mass, you had to correct him. Its the same thing that happens when people start talking about how health insurance is other countries that have national healthcare. THEY ALL LOVE IT.

    Infact the canucks have poked in on these convos when we have had them multiple times to say they can't believe the amount of people that are against this idea in the states.

    It seems like your in a good situation and i'm glad for you and you SHOULD vote against this because obviously it doesn't make sense for you personally - but that doesn't mean it doesn't make sense for ALOT of other people. I can't get into the debates with you because I don't know enough facts to argue it because I haven't really been following much lately. But i'll just stick to my general rule of thumb: oppose anything that pappy and daven say

    EDIT: isn't obama care being modeled after a successful healthcare model (Mass situation) in which you have just said works for you, but yet ur still not for it??

    My daughter ilves in the UK. She gets the choice of the UK HC system or private insurance provided by the US gov. She says the UK HC system is a nightmare. Essentially any non life threatening conditions usually take 4-6 months for an appt, Obviously, all the US gov. employees choose private insurance.</P>


    You don't know how bad it is there Matt. This comes from someone who is there. Not bogus studies by posted by Daven. Her Brit friends all hate it.</P>


    You don't understand how inefficient things get when huge bureaucracies run them. Its not idealogy. Its just the way it is. We need more competition in the system, not less.</P>

    [quote user="JPizzack"]

    [quote user="MattMeyerBud"]BTW - i think im going to be removed from the mod team because we break too many rules in here and i call people morons too much lol

    just a heads up
    [/quote]</p>


    lol. as long as we dont get regularly banned...and youre ok with your demotion....whaaaatever!</p>


    they say something?</p>[/quote]

    yea i got an email saying that that they don't want me not to be here but we have to hold our selves to a higher standard... bla bla bla...

    so i responded and said what I had to say, but **** that man. We were suppose to get some swag and **** like that and never did, so basically i do the mod'ing completely free. Which I don't mind btw, but i'm still going to say what I want to say. People get butt hurt over the terms idiotic or moronic then that sucks for them. But with the way some of these othe rmods abuse their power and just give bans to people they don't like I think is horse****. I mean how long did it take me to boot ManningBowl. I mean he literally was spamming every thread after COUNTLESS warnings.

    I dunno, hope nothing happens but if it does then I think im on my way to BBI. I can't stand their message boards though

    [quote user="JPizzack"]After watching a handful of documentaries about how nationalized healthcare works, and how people love it, and how doctors love it because they are compensated sometimes even better than our private doctors.....I'm kinda for it. Not that I can speak for the doctors in england and canada, but they in interviews say their jobs are satisfying because they know they have the ability to help everyone. Not just people with insurnace. Well, they said that when asked, so it was prompted obviously, but, it makes sense. thats how you know youre making a difference.[/quote]</P>


    Doctors love it? Where in God's name did you read that. Do you know how many doctors drop out of Medicare because they can't get paid AND when they do its crap amounts?</P>


    Look at the research, doctors hate the Medicare system and Obamacare is Medicare on steroids.</P>

    I just disagree with your general assessment that Americans are self reliant. You have some pretty scary views moorehead, not going to lie.

    And I think your living in the past. Americans arent' self reliant anymore.

    And its all a moot point. The American people would never stand for it. As I said, we are a self reliant people. Generally Americans have little or no interest is giving up the freedoms required here to have a single payer system.</P>


    </P>


    It is what has always seperated us from people from other countries. Self determination is the essential tenent of the American experience. It is precisely that that has created the most prosperous and just society on the planet.</P>


    We will NEVER support a more entitled society. We will always choose to control our own destiny. That is what makes us inherantly American.</P>
