That's just one part of it. The problem is, we're not fixing any problems, it's all a big circle jerk and the drug manufacturers and for-profit hospitals are laughing all the way to the bank.

And the patients don’t care because they’re not paying for it...that’s the problem. It’s easy to support Obamacare because it’s somebody else’s money. Somebody who makes all the right life choices and is healthy cannot get medical care because the deductibles are too high. Somebody who makes terrible life choices passes the deductible early and can get any care they want. It’s unfair and there is no incentive for people to be healthy

But like I said, these arguments are pointless. The money will run out and there won’t be any care for people who can’t afford it.

No, it's supposed to be everybody's money. That's the point of any sort of thing approaching "universal" healthcare. The public helps itself through the tax dollars they allow the government to use on their behalf.

Need surgery? Join a 6 month waiting list. And Canada isnít nearly as obese/pill addicted as the USA. Imagine the type of rationing that weíd have here. Thatís the thing, medical resources are scarce. Markets are ALWAYS the most efficient and compassionate at matching scarce resource with consumers.

In case you all haven't noticed, the election results have changed dramatically today.



It appears the senate will remain 51-49 (IN and MO flip to GOP, AZ and NV flip to DNC) , and the dems are going to pick up 35+ house seats.

It really looks like Trump's cult rallies didn't help one bit. He was a drag on the down-ticket races.

Trump + democrats is an awful combination. They’re going to “fall in love” and waste a ton of money, hastening our bankruptcy. Dems will give Trump the wall and tax cuts in the form of middle class tax credits. Democrats will get some form of amnesty for illegals.

The two-party system is failing us. I wish more people realize this as time goes on. I’ve been independent the last two years and I know that they are the minority, but I don’t care. I would rather stay true to my values.

Agreed. I have enjoyed Trump because he drives the liberals crazy, but Iím never voting republican again. I actually didnít want to vote at all in the midterms, but I thought about the work the 3rd party candidates put in knowing theyíd lose and that got me to the polls

Poor Dana. All he did was became a Russian surrogate to undermine his country and his constituents threw him out on his ass..


Dems at +32 in the house now, with still ten races to decide.

And Arizona flipped Jeff Flake's seat to a lesbian Democrat.



So basically everything points to the toxicity of Trump to voters.

In 2016, gop house candidates outperformed Trump. As in, more people voted for a gop congressman than voted for trump.

In 2018, fewer people voted for a gop congressman than voted in 2016 for trump.

Exit polls from 2016 suggest that in the 2016 House vote, Republicans defeated Democrats 54 percent to 44 percent among voters age 50–64, and by 53 percent to 45 percent among voters 65 and older. But this year, older voters were split almost evenly between the parties. Republicans carried voters in the 50–64 bracket by just 1 point, 50 percent to 49 percent—well within the margin of error for the exit poll, which was conducted for the National Election Pool by Edison Research. The results for voters 65 and older was nearly identical: 50 percent for Republicans and 48 percent for Democrats.
