The minute you stop promoting the idiocy of "Progressivism," you are banned.
Of course, the minute you START promoting the idiocy of "Progressivism," you become utterly USELESS to the world in general. You actually become a millstone around the neck of the world.
This morning I received a reply to a comment I made on a You Tube video about "Universal Healthcare" being needed in this country. Of course, the people that BELIEVE IN government run medical services have never understood mathematics, science, medical services, or basically anything under the moon. I have debunked the President's ridiculous numbers so many times that it boggles the mind. AND! I used current numbers and costs for the Medicare Program in Mississippi, a KNOWN quantity. You know, FACTS?
Anyhoo, misinformed moron says:
@architect39042 Admin costs are high in insurance provided care as well, plus did you know company CEOs make from hundreds of thousands to tens of millions in salary and bonuses(depending on the size of the company)? Also Americans pay 1.5 times what everyone else pays for care(and profits aren't the only added cost making private care so expensive) and everyone else has public systems. 45,000 Americans die per/year due to lack of coverage (the only nation where this happens).
My response to that was too tame, so I decided to add to that comment here.
First, the one point five times stupidity. Currently 47% of the country pays ZERO for medical services, so from the jump, they do not count. If you double the number of people paying the costs per person that the WHO Reports cites, which is GOOD MATH, the cost falls BELOW the LOWEST costs for medical services on the planet, but that is beside the point. Also, when you back out the numbers that are added in the WHO Report for research in the United States, which is the only country that WHO adds those numbers for, our costs per person plummet to so FAR below the rest of the world it is unimaginable.
Plus, if you think that for one stinking minute that a private industries overhead is one hundredth of the cost of a government program, you are RIDICULOUSLY insane. Folks, all you have to do to see the stupidity in government is to check the cost of the new visitor's center at the National Capitol Building. Five years late and over one thousand dollars a square foot!!!
Oh, here are the numbers of PRIVATE v. DEADBEAT medical services. Public medical services are only about FOUR TIMES more expensive.
And if you want to study the ideological reasons on why government run medical services are wrong, I kinda wrote about that, too.
Finally, people have cited wildly different statistics for all these people dropping dead from lack of medical insurance. One idiot even commented on one of my posts way back when that at least "in Australia they did not have to step over dead bodies to get into the hospital." Really.
This dude responds another time, and it is even DUMBER:
@architect39042 45,000 die because they don't go for check-ups (because they lack coverage) and wake up in pain one day, go to the doc, and find out they have terminal cancer or something, google it.
"receive FREE medical care that is paid for by taxpayers" so i guess it's not really "FREE" if someone pays for it. Every other nation has "free" care and pay 1/3 less (on average per person). YOU are the one who's misinformed.
So, it is this person's argument that people do not go to the doctor because they do not have medical insurance? Seriously, I have never paid for a doctor's visit IN MY LIFE with insurance. That is beyond stupid to me. Why would you buy "insurance" and use it like a pre-paid medical program? Hey! Let's look into why that is, mmmmkay?
TEDDY DRUNKARD-MURDERING KENNEDY and his stupid HMO ridiculousness back in the 1970s.
You see, it is just like every little thing that is wrong with "Progressive" ideology has been exacerbated and amplified to ELEVEN since my birth. There is not a single topic that our federal government is dealing with today that has not been CAUSED by "Progressive" ideology and worsened exponentially by that same ideology.
Here's the last comment from this imbecile that I could stand:
@architect39042 the point is the 45,000 wouldn't have died if the care was "free" (they would have gone for check-ups if they were covered). I propose to lower medical costs, every other nation pays 2/3 what each American pays for care.
"yet you think that other countries can actually do that?" every other nation IS doing that! The US is the only nation with private care. If America did the same as nations like Germany, Sweden, Canada etc..it would cost every American 33% less.Google the stats.
Notice, their argument is that all of those "Progressive" countries are giving those services away, they are FREE! Yet, doing the very same thing in our country would reduce costs by thirty-three percent (33%).
They have no clue that their entire argument is contradictory in the basic premise. Yet, they also do not realize that RICH PEOPLE in those countries come here to get the very same services that our POOREST people get.
Folks, it is our Constitutional duty to round these idiots up, and put them back into the insane asylums that the "Progressives" closed back in the late 1960s. Which by the way, CAUSED the explosion of homeless people.
Please take the time to comment.
