I'd rather have free doctors than free lawyers.

The last time I went to the hospital the bill was over 1,000$

Went in an ambulance and stayed for a few hours. That's it.

American healthcare ranks about the same to other modern countries in quality and is actually superior in efficiency in terms of cost, but it's many times more expensive.

Speaking of which, it can all be paid for if we divert the tax money for it. The government wastes so much ******* money it's sickening. Our debt is spiraling out of control and our paper currency is inflating. My goodness... it feels hopeless sometimes.

tl;dr With an economy like this, just getting a severe fever could cost you hundreds if not thousands. Jobs are nowhere to be found... Ah. The American dream is dead.

The money American hospitals save ******* over ~10 million people usually goes toward research (not solely I'm sure, but a good portion will), and as a result, America has the best medical research in the world. A minority suffers for the greater good of the rest of the world. Medical fascism benefits us all (as the cynic would say).

I am okay with these, to an extent. But people who are capable of working who play the victim card as unemployed I feel should not be taken care of as much.

Most of the people on welfare in the US have jobs, but don't make enough to pay all their expenses. I blame the greedy CEOs, not wanting to pay workers more than they absolutely have to, even if it's much less than they deserve.
One of the major requirements in most states for cash assistance and medicaid is being pregnant or having a child to support in addition to yourself, but not having an adequate job to do so. It's not laziness, it's the fact that the job market is hard.
And about the temporary thing in the comments below, there is a reason that cash assistance and medicaid both fall under TANF, or Temporary Assistance for Needy Families.

I know but you still have bankrupties of companies, especially now with the crisis.
I'll give an example from my country. Ford decided to close their factory in a province in my country, so now 10.000 people are without a job, so in my opinion it's good they have a temporary replacement income. There aren't at one point out of nowhere 10.000 new jobs availeble in one region, especially older people are having difficulties finding other work and some of them were paying of their house. They would be really broke without that replacement income.

You're absolutely right. These companies get ****** often. But a lot of the times, its because of unions. Irelevant to the unemployment point I was making, but the unions led to many, many companies going down.   
Like Hostess. The unions were pressing so hard and being such assholes that it just collapsed.

Oh dear god. Really, blaming the collapse of Hostess on the UNIONS? Holy ****, I just pray you did not hear the full story and really are not that much of an idiot. The Unions had already given in multiple times to try to keep the company afloat, if your looking to play the blame game look at the revolving door of CEO's that kept giving themselves undeserved raises whilst doing a piss poor job. The Unions are the ones who got ****** in that situation, and for you to say otherwise is just plain ignorance.

Actually the unions were demanding raises for the workers and the CEOs couldn't afford that and said so. The unions called ******** (even though it wasn't) and then the Hostess CEO's said **** it and closed down. I guess the CEOs were at fault because they couldn't afford to pay higher rates huh?

do you even know what life was like for middle and lower class people before unions ?
clearly not because if you did you would not be typing such foolish statements .
before unions company's were paying there employees next to nothing and no overtime no sick days for back breaking labor and long hours to maximize their profits. unions were not formed on some whim they were formed out of necessity . maybe you should brush up on your history before spewing nonsense and making yourself look stupid.

You're right. But generalizations are necessary in order to form educated assumptions and conclusions about certain things. The most powerful unions are the most corrupt (i.e the Teacher's union). Although, yes. There are some good unions.
But then again, sometimes people assume things based on pointing fingers at the easiest to blame, which is what I'm trying to avoid doing by using rationality in this case. For example, like when americans blame the wealthy for their problems. If the 1% was removed from America, it would collapse.

Well considering America is slowly collapsing right now due to the greed of the wealthy I not sure it makes much difference either way if they were to go, also sharing some of their Ill gotten gains would help the country since they are squeezing the country dry with their profit mongering also I find the fact that they call themselves "Job creators" and need to be coddled hilarious since while they are creating jobs none of them are in north America . Also the finger of blame is on them but also everyone who spends more then they earn and buy things they don't need . as for the teachers union I agree some of the stuff they demand is stupid. but that doesn't make the whole union bad.

yes the top bracket is supposed to pay 35% but using loop holes and corporate lawyers the actual number is closer to 19 % which is extremely good considering it is less then the average for middle class people but 70 years ago they had to pay 70% and the tax rates have been going down steadily for the top bracket for the last 60 years and hasn't changed at all for the other brackets . Yet now they aren't making enough money and need even less taxes ?

no? the top of the line european doctors are either making private clinics in europe (seeing as almost everyone country in the european union has free healthcare because were not selfish bitches, theres more money in private clinics), or they go to america to work for 100x the pay they got in europe. so yes, might be america has some of the best doctors in the world, though they are rarely american. and you can google that.
