    Pay now or pay later. I managed to get a fairly small hospital bill for my eye. No insurance since I was tween jobs. I am paying it off. I’ll vote for a change. Go Hillary. Nothing so screwed up as American health care. Envious of Canadians. They don’t have to worry about affording or avoiding the doctor.

    My personal feelings about Hillary aside… (I hate her, fwiw)

    The fact that you link to WorldNetDaily just proves you are an idiot.

    How is she going to decide whether you can afford it?

  • author

    I don’t know how she’ll decide. I guess it will be based on your taxable income.

    Hank, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with the article from World Net. There’s no opinion in it at all, so I dont know what your beef is with the site.

    Also, I expected the hateful comments today. Let’s try to keep it a rational discussion. Thanks for the comments!

    I think what Hank was saying is that anyone who uses informative sources for their information instead of random conjecture is an idiot.

    Nonetheless, I appreciate you having done so despite that. There are a couple of things to remember though in defense of Hillary. She rarely ever keeps her promises, and changes on a whim anyhows, so it’s a very small chance that your wages will be garnished to provide your own Health Care. Or, if it is, it will be because of the rest of the Governing body (Senate/House).

    She was just caught a bit unawares in that discussion, not having actually planned out how Universal Healthcare would be achieved, just saying what she knows she needs to say to ‘win’. The actual method to do it would likely be quite different than her proposal.

    when you vote today, or rather in November, it comes down to one simple question really: who should be in charge of taking care of you?

    if you think you should be in charge of taking care of you, vote red.

    if you think someone else should be in charge of taking care of you, vote blue.

    – Romney ’08

    I don’t know how she’ll decide. I guess it will be based on your taxable income.

    In that case, it looks like I’ll escape her clutches.

    In response to the health care, I voted for Hillary for the simple fact, the state of Massachusetts where I am from is already MAKING people get health care. If you don’t have it you are penalized by a federal fine. So it makes no difference to us. Our state has already implemented that law and let me see, it was the governor who is good friends with Obama that implemented it so be careful who you vote for be it Governor, senator and congressman it’s not just the president that has the power the other guys do more so because everything passes through them, so think about it. The President can only go so far and then it’s up to the other people you elected to pass it.

    I have a serious problem when someone like Hilary says she will garnish my wages for healthcare to insure that her plan for universal health care covers everyone. That takes away everyones freedom of choice. who is she to say it will be affordable to me. I find it very ironic that she only says in her speeches everyone will have universaL healthcare. but she never says I’m going to ensure that by garnishing everyone wages who can afford it but elect not to get it. Tell the whole truth hilary not the half truth, thats exactly why you are not getting my vote in texas on march 4th.

    i couldn’t agree with you more Sandy.

    Well, flash forward 2+ years and now we have passed a massive health care bill. And not from Hillary, but from Obama. And the language to enforce health insurance coverage is in there, but I don’t know to what extent.

    How do I feel about this? Well, I wish the politicans attacked the health care problem from a different angle. Like ensuring that patients receive proper coverage, rather than excessive coverage. Look at the core cause on why health care costs so much. Instead, we’re just putting a band-aid on the problem.

    Make sure you keep flapping that red cape, Erik. You’re sure to find one person who will fall for this.

    funny this article was written years ago, but now see how it turned out. IRS involved and even liberals are upset that they lost their coverage and thrown on the exchange and were happier of what they had before, and have to pay even higher rates. Like Guber said, he specifically refers to American voters as ill-informed or “stupid”. In the first, most widely-publicized video taken at a panel discussion about the ACA at the University of Pennsylvania in October 2013, Gruber said the bill was deliberately written “in a tortured way” to disguise the fact that it creates a system by which “healthy people pay in and sick people get money”. He said this obfuscation was needed due to “the stupidity of the American voter” in ensuring the bill’s passage. so, who are the STUPID people? Democrat voters or Republican voters?
