Well the benefits are getting better and better but I suspect my actual care would require me waiting 3 months and driving an hour a 5 minute appointment with a Dr who went to med school in the Caribbean.

There are biased numbers from liberal think-tanks that are laughably low because there is no way they can have a universal health-care program for 330 million plus people in a country that is collectively in extremely poor health where a majority of Americans basically eat a poisonous diet and where able-bodied people walk a fraction of that the average American did generations ago.

I personally am for Medicaid state block grants and keeping Medicare as is and just declining the reimbursement rates and shifting it onto commercial insurance.
just like Obamacare, they will never know or will divulge what their healthcare schemes will cost. I think we've heard enough from Democrats regarding healthcare.

OK, so cars are like bodies; you can't prevent everything.
