Why only greedy bastards, Lunatics & Enemy of the Nation would be against Universal Government run Socialized Health care
as you can see USA has the lowest Life expectancy of developed Nations, Highest Infant Mortality rates and on top of that spends 2 times as much on health care as Nations with Government run Universal Nationalized Health Care (NHS). So from these figures one can instantly see that you really have to be the TRUE ENEMY of the Nation to be against NHS.
2nd, Health Insurance is NOT health care
The reason that health care in USA is a disaster for most American People, before or after ObamaCare, is that even if you have health insurance in USA, it can mean squat. Unless you have health insurance provided by Government, Military, CIA, Google, Apple, GoldManSachs, etc. since typical Health insurance beside carrying excessive Monthly premiums is really a ticket to rip you off when you actually need health care, since:
1- Health insurance comes with exorbitant deductibles of $5000 per Year per Family member and More!
2- Health insurance comes with what is know as a Co-Pay which can easily be 20% of your total Hospital bills.
These 2 facts alone render health care either not feasible for most American People whom are paying Monthly Health Insurance premiums or leading to their financial ruin or bankruptcy if they actually get ill and need Hospitalization!
After all a Hospitalization of 10 days in a US hospital can easily cost an INSANE amount of $250,000 in total bills, this means the Deductible & Co-Pay for the patient would be about $55,000 which for typical American would mean financial ruin or bankruptcy.
Why is European, Canadian, Israeli, etc. NHS far superior to US for profit health care?
1- In countries that have NHS, every citizen gets health care for FREE for the Taxes you pay. This means when you are working you get total health care for FREE for yourself and family due to the Payroll Taxes (Medicare Taxes) that you are pay and when you are Unemployed or Retired then you get health care for FREE for all those years that you worked and paid Payroll Taxes. Contrast this to US where you get ABSOLUTELY NO health care for the Taxes that you Pay, but you have to pay an additional $15,000 per year (family of 4) for health care on top of the Taxes that you pay. And even the free health care that you get after 65, what is called Medicare, does not fully cover all your health care costs, but only about 70% of it, requiring you as a Senior Citizen to pay an additional $250,000 for health care costs, as per a recent study which is in the footnote below. Now contrast this to UK, Canada, Israel, etc. developed Nations with NHS where again you get total health care for FREE for the Government being "entitled" to Tax you all your life, just as the Government in US is "entitled" to Tax US all our lives.
2- In countries that have NHS, you do not loose your health care for yourself or your family when you loose your Job, whereas in US within months of loosing your Job you will loose your health care coverage unless you pay nearly 100% of your unemployment benefits to buy health care through what is called COBRA, and even that runs out in a short time. And lets also state here that you need your health care coverage even more after you loose your Job due to all the stress that loosing a Job can have on a person and family.
3- In countries that have NHS, NO ONE is denied health care because they have a pre-existing condition, which astoundingly is the case in US resulting in at least 50,000 Americans being KILLED each year due to this truly EVIL fact. That means US Government, or the so called health care system that this Government has put in place, KILLS at least TEN Times more Americans each year due to the "pre-existing condition" monstrosity than Osama Bin Laden killed in 9/11. Think about this FACT.
4- In countries that have NHS, NOT ONE person or family is going bankrupt each year due to health care costs whereas in US 2Mill+ people go bankrupt each year due to health care costs.
5- But perhaps the ultimate reason why NHS is vastly superior for the country than the US style health care system is that in the countries that have NHS, health care is taking on average 9% of the GDP whereas in US with for profit Wall Street run health care, health care is taking a DEFICIT BUSTING 18% of the GDP.
NHS gives health care to all while CUT health care spending & Deficits by 50%
Government run Universal Socialized Health Care (NHS), is the only way to operate the health care of a country in today's modern World. That is either totally Government run Single payer as in UK, Israel, etc. or Government regulated private insurance based as in Germany, Canada, etc.
And here is the ABSOLUTE proof WHY: in countries that have NHS, which is all European countries, Canada, Israel, Japan, in fact all developed Nations but USA, it is taking on average 9% of GDP to give health care to ALL the people of the country, while in USA with 50Mill+ without have health care, 2Mill+ going bankrupt each year due to health care costs, at least 50,000+ KILLED each year due to being denied health care due to "pre-existing condition" clause, etc. catastrophe health care is taking a deficit BUSTING 18% of GDP!
And the above FACT are WHY all Conservative parties, repeat for Republican lunatics and right-wing LYING Media in US, ALL Conservative parties, in Europe, Canada, Japan, Israel, etc. are 100% for their NHS.
More on how Government run Socialized health care give health care to all while cut health care spending by 50%:
Lies after Lies after Lies by Republicans and lying Media in US against NHS
Now when you list the above facts as to how vastly better for the Nation (Government & People & Businesses) NHS is compared to US for profit Wall Street run health care system, then Republicans and the right-wing Media/Cabal that controls them, or they control, respond with the most amazing set of LIEs and non-sense, such as:
"Yes, but our health care results are much better than Europeans, Canadian, etc."
Which statement is totally false, since US health care results rank well below the Europeans, Canadians, etc. developed nation and instead they rank with some of the poorest 3rd World countries, which you can see here:
This of course would be obvious to anyone with half a brain given that 50Mill+ Americans have NO health care, or you loose your health care when you loose your Job, or that even most Americans that do have health insurance do not dare to go for health coverage due to exorbitant deductibles, co-pays, etc. rip offs.
2- Or Republicans and our right-wing Media will state the following total LIE:
"Europeans or Canadians are coming to US for their health care needs"
"Europeans or Canadians are dying waiting in line to get health care due to their Government run Universal Socialized health care"
Now you want to see what utter complete lies such statements that has come out of US Media by the Billions in opposition to NHS are? You can see this by considering these FACT:
A- You will find NOT ONE, not even ONE, Canadian or European party or media organization saying that lets replace our Universal Socialized Health Care with US style for profit health care.
2- You will not see or read ONE US Media outlet say the above LIES in their European or Canadian versions, which is the ultimate irrefutable proof as to the above statements being total lies - more about this here,
Final desperate argument: US has more discoveries in Medicine that countries with Nationalized Health
And the final desperate argument that Republican lunatics and the right-wing Media make against NHS is to say something like:
"What medical advancement your favored Nationalized Health Care Systems have discovered in the last 20 year....?"
Which again shows how devoid of facts these people are since in fact countries with NHS have been behind many more discoveries in Medicine than US has been which you can simply see from countries with NHS having been awarded almost 2 Times as many Nobel prizes in Medicine than US, which you can see detailed here:
And here is the real killer part about this issue: most of the US Noble prize winners in Medicine where from countries that have NHS, whom were offered 10s of Millions of Dollars, by Big Pharma in US, to come to US to finish their work in US, which money they could not be offered under their NHS but could under US for profit health care system. That is these scientists from European countries, China, etc. would have finished their work in their own countries if they were not lured by 10s of Millions of Dollars to US, because of course not every person will reject the allure of being offered 10s of Millions of Dollars for moving from country X to US. But even in this regard more and more Scientist from China, Europe, etc. are not moving to US with even lure of 10s of Millions of Dollars, having realized what a monstrosity US health care system is, and instead staying at their own countries to finish their research even when that means making Millions of Dollars less than if they joined the Big Pharma in US, such as the recent case of a Chinese Scientist from Princeton whom was offered 10s of Millions of Dollars to finish his highly regarded Cancer research in US but he instead choose to return to China for a pay of about $80,000 per Year.
So why does US still doesn't have Universal Nationalized Health Care?
So given how vastly better for the people, for (small) businesses, for the country, and thus the Government, NHS is compared to US style for profit health care, as listed above and as absolutely evident by the FACT that ALL developed nations in the World have one form or another of NHS, then why is it that US still does not have NHS?
How is it that Republicans can be such utter lunatics to call NHS, to be:
And how is that vast parts of US Media, aka right-wing Media, that is Talkradio, Wall Street Journal, Forbes, CNN, etc. etc., repeat the above non-sense along with the Republicans?
And how is it that Obama Admin passed a TOTAL JOKE of a health care reform that is anything but NHS, given the fact it mandates us to buy health care from the same Wall Street backed companies that have brought us the current bankrupting system without our Government tightly regulating what these bastard Insurance companies can charge, resulting in the number of American without health care having gone up by few Million since its passage, rather than going down to ZERO, and resulting in cost of health care going higher than going dramatically lower to ZERO for the Taxes we already pay, which is what NHS would.
Because the Super rich and Big corporations (Big Pharma, Big Insurance) who stand to loose $1-Trillion per year by operating health care on a Government run Universal Socialized basis, are spending 10s of Billions of Dollars per year to directly or indirectly finance such lying slime bags as Limbaugh, Beck, Hannety, Fix news, Wall Street Journal, CNBC, etc., in fact 99% of US Media, to brain wash the (uneducated) American people, to not be aware of how much vastly superior for the People and the Government NHS is.
After all keep in mind, that even if Big Pharma, Big Insurance spends 100 Billion Dollars per year to LIE and LIE about NHS, to brain wash vast segments of American Public to be against NHS by getting them to believe their non-sense and lies, to control the members of Congress, they will still be more than $900 Billion Dollars per year ahead, which is the cost savings that NHS will produce less the $100 Billion they spend to fund their Media lies.
So that is why US is the ONLY country in the so called developed World that does not have NHS.
The TRUTH about the ENEMY within
So you have to face the FACT: that US is truly suffering from an ENEMY within, which ENEMY does not give a SQUAT how many 10s of 1000s of Americans it kills per year due to denying them health care, it does not give a SQUAT how many Millions of Americans it drives into bankruptcy each year due to health care costs but the only thing that it cares about is that they are paid $40 Million per year and fly in their $50 Million Private Jets to their Villas. And they will spend 100s of Billions of Dollars to fund one lying machine after another, from psychos on Talkradio, to Fox news, to Wall Street Journal, to ABC, CNN, etc. to tell any LIES to get away with their Con Job, their War, on American People.
For why else would you not be for Universal Nationalized Healthcare (NHS), set aside oppose it, which would give health care to ALL Americans while cut health care spending by 50%. And that is why all Conservative parties in Europe, Canada, Israel, etc. are 100% for their NHS.
