What are you scared of? Getting cancer and then the government denying payment for chemo?
Look around, Jon. That’s just. not. happening. Your argument here, like most I’ve seen, are predicated on fictitious boogey-men that exist nowhere else outside of your mind.
If there’s a problem with the system, it’s that these public insurance programs are generally too quick to authorize care.
Oh, make no mistake Jon; if you want to pursue some unproven, experimental and highly expensive “treatment” option for your condition, the single-payer system won’t stop you! Nossir, not at all.
It’s just not going to PAY for it. Just like virtually every current insurance provider won’t pay for that kind of stuff. But you’re still free to seek that treatment.
Your inability to distinguish between the two here is why your argument doesn’t work.
For the umpteen-millionth time, Jon, your doctor will be telling you what’s best for you. That’s how it works everywhere this system exists.
Sorry Jon. Back then, if you got really fed up with your immediate company, you could pack up and move a little further west. Now that we’ve hit the Pacific, we have to deal with our problems now.
The only “rights” you’re fighting for are the “right to poor-to-no healthcare because you’re broke” and the “right to stay in the cycle of poverty because you can’t afford your medical bills”.
That’s all you’re fighting for here. Stop it. We need to help these people. Some of which may even be your eventual “posterity”.
Stop right there. The intellectual cannot be beholden to the emotional. Not if it’s meant to be used synonymous to “rational”.
You are emotionally attached. Your intellect is employed only insofar as to craft an apologetic for what you’ve already emotionally decided.
