oh yeah, i love the alternative to a system with occasional fuckups. i vaguely recall not being able to afford to give my 40 year-old mother the treatment she needed for her conditions that hung her life by a thread for a whole decade, while overpriced pharmaceuticals bled us dry to where even with her welfare and my full-time working father we had been slowly sinking to the point of ruination.
she died, by the way. it was completely preventable, we just couldn't afford proper treatment without resulting in living on the streets.

And they don't get my sympathy. I have a chronic illness too, and you want to know how much a single dose of the medicine keeping me functional costs? Over 3,000 dollars. Luckily I have good insurance so I only have to pay about 50 dollars for each dose. And before you say that's an example of 'big pharma', realize this medicine is the newest generation of its type, and less than 10% of the people with my condition have the problems I have which force me to have to take this new form rather than any of the previous, cheaper incarnations. Do you really expect me to support a system wherein I have to pay for the medical problems of random people, and would still have to pay extra for my own care? And all because of an anonymous, unverifiable sob story?

"Luckily, I have good insurance"

Well, arent you lucky to have been born with good insurance. Oh wait, you're not born with insurance. Good insurance is expensive, unless you get it from work which NEWSFLASH will be shitty unless you work for a successful corporation. The cheap insurance plans are now often narrow network which means they often wont even pay for your entire medical team. Like they'll pay for the surgeon but not the anesthesiologist that was used cuz he's not in their network again leaving the patient with thousands of dollars to pay when he thought it was going to be covered.

The whole point of socialized medicine is that in developed countries no one should be dying because of lack of money. Healthcare should not be just for the rich, it should be for everyone who contributes (citizens and residents) to the society and needs it.

But I think you knew all of this already and are just a garbage pale of a human being.

Damn, way to attack me, anon! You sure changed my mind with all your reasoned discourse. So what you are saying is we should only provide service to people who contribute? Because I'm all for that, but unfortunately that's not what happens with socialized medicine. It doesn't matter if you are Daddy big dick who pays 30% of his income to taxes or Johnny no shoes who is unemployed, you get the same care, so again, what possible reason beyond "oh it's the right thing to do, don't you care about other people?" do I have for putting randos on my back when I already have my own problems to deal with?

Just because some people dont make enough money to pay taxes doesnt mean they dont contribute to society with their work. As for the unemployed, as long as they are looking for work they still receive gov benefits. Everyone else is not that large of a percentage and if they become a problem you can have legislation passed to exclude them. But denying a whole system based on nothing else but selfish bitterness is just plain greedy. The reason you want this sort of program is because its better for the society you live in. So that if something unfortunate happens to your children or your childrens children they dont get fucked cuz they have no money. There are so many stories of people like you who had enough to live comfortably and didnt really require social programs, then something terrible happens where you need gov assistance or all your shit is lost in a war and all of a sudden you have seen the error of your ways.

Greed isnt good. I've said it before and I'll say it again. We need to be working for the betterment of our society, not just ourselves. Quit being a greedy asshole.

PS. I only attacked you with my last line in my last post because you truly are a garbage pale of a human being, but before that I very reasonable stated a few points contrary to your own. So dont pretend like I only attack you while bringing nothing worth discussing to the table. I left this as my last point since you only seem to read the last one.

You don't have to care about other people's business, but there's no need to berate those who do want to care.
