Standing in line at the pharmacy today when the octogenarian ahead of me....
...turned around and started talking about the cost of prescriptions and how they keep going up. I thought, "Okay, this guys wants to complain a little and he has the right, he's been around long enough." The next words out of his mouth I maybe should have expected but I was still amazed to hear them just the same.

He said that that crazy woman in New York was going to promise everything to the young people like free medicine, free schooling, free everything just to get votes. I had to ask, but I think that I already knew, what crazy woman he was talking about. He said, "that Ocasio woman". I told him that those things weren't true but that is how Republicans were trying to characterize her policies. In his best Fox News parroting voice he said, "That it was socialism."

He went back to talking about health care and said that we couldn't afford the 9 million dollars for free health care for everyone. I knew what he meant...kind of. So I said, "How is it that places that aren't nearly as rich as this country like Canada, Germany, Japan, the United Kingdom, Sweden, and pretty much every industrialized country on the planet can afford to provide health care for their citizens and we can't?"

I didn't know an 80 something year old could snap his head back around that fast. I didn't stop. I told him that we could easily provide that same health benefits our European allies provide to their citizens. I told him that the U.S. spends about 34 trillion on health care in 10 years and if we had universal health care, it would actually cost about 2 trillion less over the same period. I just kept whispering facts and statistics over his shoulder as he waited for his turn.

You've never seen a man so grateful to finally reach the head of any line.

And then everyone clapped

Saw that blathering at the DUmp last night.  Thought it was such a pathetic bouncy that I didn't bring it over.  Whatever makes DUmmies feel so smug & superior, I suppose.

how long does it take to get surgery  for a non life threatening condition (for example a knee replacement) in those countries?

...turned around and started talking about the cost of prescriptions and how they keep going up. I thought, "Okay, this guys wants to complain a little and he has the right, he's been around long enough." The next words out of his mouth I maybe should have expected but I was still amazed to hear them just the same. He said that the majic negro promised everything would be cheaper with obama care. But he was lying like all the rest of the democrats do.

Depends if it is serious they make the trip here to the states just like several MP's in Canada did and still do. 

I have a relative in Canada that comes here to get annual mammograms due to increased cancer risk in her family, pays cash and is very grateful to have this option.   

I have been told there are more MRI machines just in N.H. than there are in the entire country of Canada.

These will be the same dummies who, when faced with the increased taxes necessary to give medicare for all, will be on the dump whining about how their welfare checks don't go as far as they used to.   :argh:

Not one dummie understands the real reason medical care costs so much:  Medicare and Medicaid.  These two plans can dictate by force of law what they will pay, as well as dictate by force of law that all hospitals must accept it. 

Well dummies... guess what?  Hospitals have to at least break even or they go under... so what do they do?  They find the money elsewhere... by charging private insurance more. 

I swear if the dummies were to look up "complete dumb****s" in the encyclopedia, they would find their collective pics.    :-)
