Land of the brave and home of the uninsured.

I knew a older guy who had more money than God who had medicare help pay for his kidney transplant. Meanwhile, there are uninsured children who can't get a heart transplant or something.

If you act sanctimonious I will just list out your logical fallacies until you get pissed off and spew blasphemous remarks.

Yes our healthcare isn't free, but in Canada and England you may wait 6 months to get a much needed CAT scan or MRI. In the US our technology is constantly being upgraded and us the taxpayers are paying for it.

It's not FREE here either. They take it off of our pay checks. I pay over $100 a month and I never use the shit. Plus we don't have to wait 6 months to get a MRI or CAT. I hate how the media leads everyone to believe things. You want the facts then you have to find out for yourself.

But I'm sure if there was a homless person that needed help ( that dosen't have health care) our hospitals wouldn't turn them down. So I guess it's free for people that don't have jobs ! which is not right either.

^^I agree with TALO. Everyone thinks our healthcare is free. The only truth to that is that there are no fees to pay when you go to the doctor, but you pay every paycheque, sick or not.

Canada isn't a third world country, we've got technology too lol.

TALO, the homeless guy would have to have his healthcard with him or he would be screwed

Hey hey hey... I didn't mean to offend either of you. Basically I am saying that US healthcare costs are so high because this country is constantly upgrading more than any other country. That and baby boomers are sucking up all the medicare, which I am paying and will never see a dime.

I had no idea you had to pay for healthcare. The medications are still free right?

No the medications are not free. Only if you have a good job - and even then you still have to pay for it some way.

I thought the medicare was so high in the US because of all the insurance companies keep ripping people off .

And you haven't offend either of us , were just saying how it is.
