How would you like to wait 4 1/2 months for medical treatment?

England:
"How poor is access to care in socialized systems like the NHS? Access problems are so widespread that the government was compelled to issue England’s 2010 “NHS Constitution” in which it was declared that no patient should wait beyond 18 weeks for treatment.

Quoting 4EverLoyal:

Sir!

New cases of PTSD is not the result of "Obamacare".  PTSD is now in the DSMV as an illness, therefore, ensuring that people have insurance for treatment is very important.

President Obama is on his way out of the White House, you may see more conservative leadership in 2016,

who knows!!!! 


Our country cannot handle another three years of Obama. He is far from being on the way out, unless he gets impeached which I would gladly welcome!

My 2 cents:

As a responsible individual Ive always paid out of my own pocket for my health insurance policy. People need to get rid of the cable tv and the fancy cell phones in order to afford their health care. It should be their #1 priority.

Amazing!  I will be getting $146.00 more on my check this month.  I was aware that my company got a rebate from our insurance carrier due to over collection on premiums, but I didn't think they would pass it forward to the employees.....but they did.  Yipppeee!!

 

It seems that one of the Obamacare regulations require insurance companies to spend 80% of collected premiums on healthcare delivery.  If they collect more than a 20% profit, they have to refund the money.  They can't just give the CEO a bigger Christmas bonus.

 

Can you imagine how much the insurance companies were making?  We're just one small independently owned company.

DIVORCE AGREEMENT

Dear American liberals, leftists, social progressives, socialists, Marxists and Obama supporters, et al: We have stuck together since the late 1950's for the sake of the kids, but the whole of this latest election process has made me realize that I want a divorce. I know we tolerated each other for many years for the sake of future generations, but sadly, this relationship has clearly run its course.

Our two ideological sides of America cannot and will not ever agree on what is right for us all, so let's just end it on friendly terms. We can smile and chalk it up to irreconcilable differences and go our own way.

Here is a our separation agreement:

--Our two groups can equitably divide up the country by landmass each taking a similar portion. That will be the difficult part, but I am sure our two sides can come to a friendly agreement. After that, it should be relatively easy! Our respective representatives can effortlessly divide other assets since both sides have such distinct and disparate tastes.

--We don't like redistributive taxes so you can keep them.
--You are welcome to the liberal judges and the ACLU.

--Since you hate guns and war, we'll take our firearms, the cops, the NRA and the military.
--We'll take the nasty, smelly oil industry and the coal mines, and you can go with wind, solar and biodiesel.
--You can keep Oprah, Michael Moore and Rosie O'Donnell. You are, however, responsible for finding a bio-diesel vehicle big enough to move all three of them.
--We'll keep capitalism, greedy corporations, pharmaceutical companies, Wal-Mart and Wall Street.
--You can have your beloved lifelong welfare dwellers, food stamps, homeless, homeboys, hippies, druggies and illegal aliens.
--We'll keep the hot Alaskan hockey moms, greedy CEO's and rednecks.
--We'll keep Bill O'Reilly, and Bibles and give you NBC and Hollywood .
--You can make nice with Iran and Palestine and we'll retain the right to invade and hammer places that threaten us.
--You can have the peaceniks and war protesters. When our allies or our way of life are under assault, we'll help provide them security.
--We'll keep our Judeo-Christian values.
--You are welcome to Islam, Scientology, Humanism, political correctness and Shirley McClain. You can also have the U.N. but we will no longer be paying the bill.
--We'll keep the SUV's, pickup trucks and oversized luxury cars. You can take every Volt and Leaf you can find.
--You can give everyone healthcare if you can find any practicing doctors.
--We'll keep "The Battle Hymn of the Republic" and "The National Anthem."
--I'm sure you'll be happy to substitute "Imagine", "I'd Like to Teach the World to Sing", "Kum Ba Ya" or "We Are the World".
--We'll practice trickle-down economics and you can continue to give trickle up poverty your best shot.
--Since it often so offends you, we'll keep our history, our name and our flag.
Would you agree to this? If so, please pass it along to other like-minded liberal and conservative patriots and if you do not agree, just hit delete. In the spirit of friendly parting, I'll bet you might think about which one of us will need whose help in 15 years.

Excellent write up about enabling people Dak.

There is a old country saying about "that dog don't hunt".. But, it seems if you quit feeding the dog, there is a good chance that it might start hunting.. People are the same.

And I totally agree that voucher cards are a bad idea except for perhaps people that are disabled or elderly.   Too much abuse.

Quoting Dakota35:

Diana, you just don't get it.  In my life I have never had insurance much. Because of that I have saved a huge amount of money.  You obviously do not realize that a large majority of the poor public does not have health insurance. You are a nurse you should realize this.  

 

Actually, I my insanity is getting better...I found a solution, just hoping it keeps working.  But I'll be cautiously aware that I could digress at any time...and if I do then I should apply form mental disability. LOL  Isn't everyone crazy in their own way?  If you answer "no" you may not be self-aware.


 

Yes Dak….I am very aware that poor people do not have insurance.  I took care of them for years and years in a previous life.  I watched them shuffle in to the clinic clothed in their raggedy and sometimes smelly clothes, the elderly women who hadn’t had a perm in maybe a decade or two, the men with their rotten, decayed teeth and gnarly crooked fingers.  I remember one old woman that was a chronic patient who used to say, “Miss Diane, do you have any food?  I’m so hongreee.”  I’d go back to the break room and draw some hot water from the faucet into a Styrofoam cup, tear a package of powdered bullion and crumble up some crackers if I had any.  She would thank me so profusely as if I had given her a steak and say how good it was.  Then I would stick two needles in her arm and deliver a life-saving treatment that made her feel even sicker.  One old woman, who was crippled and confined to a wheelchair…..would come to the clinic and once she got settled, would start rummaging in her purse.  The roaches would just come boiling out of her purse….the little brown nasty ones…but sometimes one of those big water bugs.  We had to try to smash them before they got away into the clinic.  I’m sure her house was infested with them.  This woman had no teeth and just ate oatmeal three times a day, every day!

 

I have so many other stories of poor people and their wretched lives.....but mostly it was the women that suffered the most.  I remember all their faces.  Never the less…..we gave them the best care we could…despite the fact that they were poor.  They were grateful....and they loved us.  That was my experience with the poor in this country!  I think YOU just don't get it.

Today, I am officially uninsured.  Thanks Obamacare for saving me on my health insurance....I'll be saving $300 a month.



Well....you always have said that you're crazy.  I hope you prove whatever it is that you're trying to prove.  Never the less....good luck Dak.

Check the local clinics to see if they have any monthly pre paid plans.  Many do..

I admit that there are many valid disabilities that are almost invisible, such a fibro or chronic fatigue, and probably others for which there is no real diagnosis.. I confess I don't know what to do about those.. However the people who can hunt, fish, play sports, party all day or night, or shop for hours really don't seem to have valid reasons for being on disability to me..  There are plenty of those.

Good write up Dakota and that is the way I see the problem.  I would guess that a large majority of people on disability don't belong there, and like you said, if you have a education but actually can't work you cannot get it.  My cousin, who was a TV broadcaster, fought cancer for over two years before she died.  Her disability was approved after her death.  A older couple who were fans of hers paid for all of her surgeries and cancer treatments, hundreds of thousands worth of bills, bless them.  My cousin should have been on medicare but a lot of that money seems to be allocated to alcoholics and drug addics. It's out of control.

Quoting Dakota35:

Don't worry about he ICU cost, I'm going to sign up for Medicaid!  It's all the rage and Obama is giving some no choice.  (Like the guy that owns a 5 million dollar home and just got signed up against his wishes for Medicaid)  So I say "if you can't beat them join them"  I just wonder who's going to pay when we all are getting it for free.  Keep working Diana, someone has to pay for my ICU, right?  LOOPHOLES!!!  Got to love them!!!  :-)  I wonder if I can get on mental disability???    

 

 



Dak,

Can you please provide more information on the guy with the 5 million dollar house? I would like to verify the story.

Quoting Diana3316:

Indeed WWWW.  County hospitals are great!  I have worked at two of them in two different TX cities, including the big one here in Dallas.  I loved my work and the Drs were some of the best I've ever had the privilege to work with.  But I thought you didn't like socialism. 


In Texas the county hospitals are mostly funded by a type of insurance. Every home owner pays taxes to the Hospital District.  It is partly socialism, mostly insurance..  If you rent and don't own the home, in essance it is included in your rent..If you are low income then you are covered.  It is not a insurance program for high wage earners.
No, I don't like socialism in large doses..  Some social programs are ok, but the idea of taking from the high earners and giving to the people that don't work, but could work, is totally WRONG.. Programs to help the disabled, etc. are fine with me.. SS and Medicare are not socialist programs. They have been paid for by the taxpayer.. and many never live to collect what they paid in.   Actually they are run now as a Ponzi scheme. They should be a program such that if you never get to use SS your heirs should get back the amount paid in..To the people that never get to collect a dime, SS and Medicare are indeed socialism - or theft.

Quoting wwww12345:

There are many charity hospitals that will take care of you in a emergency.

We have a huge county hospital here for poor people.  Probably the best trama center emergency care in the state.  Every state could have one of these..

And then there is medical bankruptcy.

Quoting Dakota35:

Ah yes once again hell is getting very cold as we agree on something! :)  Later you will join me in my dislike of Obamcare.  I'm dropping my coverage and I'll just pay the penalty.  The American citizens are dealing with two crooks, the insurance companies and the government.  These two crooks are now in a battle in which the citizens are the looser. 

 

I don't smoke, drink, use drugs.  I eat healthy and small portions.  I exercise regularly.  I haven't been to any kind of doctor in years.  Why should I pay more for my insurance?  Why should I pay for someone that smokes, drinks, uses drugs, over-eats and/or generally lives a unhealthy lifestyle?  I don't agree with this lifestyle.  I feel that I pay more than my fair share of taxes.  My accountant (now fired) once made a mistake and I paid my taxes twice in one year, around 50K.  My business runs 7 days a week, so my weekends are sacrificed and my income is more...thus my taxes are more.  For my hard work and sacrifice, I'm rewarded by paying more in taxes.  How is it people will continue to sacrifice, work harder and longer only to be punished with increased taxes/fee/regulations?  Slowly, these people will wake up and smell the roses, either completely stopping work or slowing down.  Most have already achieve success.  At that point where will the tax dollars come from to run this country?  So what would happen if my taxes were lower?:  I would have purchase more equipment, my business would grow, my workers would be paid better.  But instead, I'm rather sure that one day, maybe sooner than later, I will shut down my business.   I will stop spending money on equipment, fuel, etc and my employees will have to find work elsewhere.  The world will never notice as I'm so small but if a million businesses shut their doors, then the world will notice.   

 

A system that punishes people for hard work and sacrifice and rewards those that do not, will ultimately fail.



Dak~

That is very good that you practice healthy eating and behaviors.....however that is still no guarentee that some illness will not befall you.  You could have a car accident.  If you want to gamble with everything that you have worked so hard for....well....I guess you can.  One trip to the ICU at $2500+/day could possibly wipe you out and you could lose everything!

 

 

From PubMed.gov published Jun 2005:

Daily costs were greatest on intensive care unit day 1 (mechanical ventilation, 10,794 dollars; no mechanical ventilation, 6,667 dollars), decreased on day 2 (mechanical ventilation:, 4,796 dollars; no mechanical ventilation, 3,496 dollars), and became stable after day 3 (mechanical ventilation, 3,968 dollars; no mechanical ventilation, 3,184 dollars).

@Dakota..  I agree with you totally.  The people that work 100 hours per week, take financial risks, are considered rich by the people that don't work, so they think you should support their laziness. What a idea.

Yes, such a socialism system will fail, they always have, they always will.    It is a total shame that the socialist libatards in this country are to ignorant to realize that fact. They are hurting their children, grandchildren, and all of their relatives children.   Totally stupid and they are the enemies of all hard working people.

I would save money if I went on the exchanges rather than use my employer subsidized health care plan.  I have not switched over.  Don't yet trust the stability of the political situation.
