Romney loves Israeli socialized medicine

I guess there are some political alliances more important than opposition to government-run health care:

Conservatives have spent a lot of time accusing President Obama of trying to bring socialized medicine to America. It’s a grossly misleading charge: For better or for worse, the Affordable Care Act relies heavily on private insurance and involves far laxer regulation than most universal coverage schemes.

No, if you want to see a system with truly socialistic characteristics, you have to look elsewhere. Israel, for example. And guess who just praised that system? Mitt Romney, while addressing a fundraiser in Jerusalem.

I'm pretty sure 90% of those that appose Obama care, would rather a pure socialized medicine. Even if it meant paying more in taxes than OC premiums. The difference would be, people could be held accountable, if not by legal actions, then replaced by a vote.

I think 90% of those who SUPPORT Obamacare would rather a single payer system (I think that's what you mean by "pure socialized medicine"). 90% of those who oppose axiomatically assume anything a Democrat did must be bad, so the actual content of Obamacare is beside the point.

You don't even know what a "Single Payer" insurance system is, do you?
I bet you think it's some "Save the Humanity" Kumbiya moment don't you?
Let's all stand in the streets and hold the Monopoly Insurance providers hand and sing "Helping hands across the Nation" While they eat you alive with Premiums, Deductibles, Out of pocket expenses, surprise inspection to raise your rates, in tandem with executives lobbying law makers to get the go ahead to raise rates, on top of and after the sanctioned surprise inspections, that yielded rate increases for 95% of the homes inspected.

Oh my bad I just described Florida's home insurance "Single Provider"

So to answer you question, my "inject revisions in other people's mouth" Friend.

FUCK NO!!! I did not mean a fucking Single Payer.

I mean "Socialized Medicine"

"Single Payer" is something Republican have been running around this country, in Liberal skins keep touting.

Where in the hell did all of the Liberals go?

If you guys would just go to the mirror and take off your Bill Clinton masks, you'll find GW. Bush.

Wikipedia, quoting The American Heritage Medical Dictionary, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Publishing Company:

"Socialized medicine is a term used to describe a system for providing medical and hospital care for all at a nominal cost by means of government regulation of health services and subsidies derived from taxation."

and then:

If the system of care is publicly financed and privately delivered, it is called a single-payer system. This is what Canada has.

The rest of your reply is schizophrenic word salad. Welcome to my ignore list.

You wanna talk about word salad Son?

Wikipedia, quoting The American Heritage Medical Dictionary, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Publishing Company:

Because I want to talk about RICH! It's really rich you would let the American Heritage Medical dictionary and publishing companies define Health Care. What is America's Medical heritage? That's right Son, "For Profit" healthcare. Now you're going to let that buzz word fancy cock dance define healthcare?

Socialized medicine = A service that is provided by the Government, as part of the taxes you pay. Much like public schools, law enforcement, and Postal Service.

(Now this next one is really important Son, so pay attention, lest you be bamboozled by the Biggest money racquet in the history of bamboozlement that is our insurance companies/hospitals/ higher medical education axis of Evil)

Single Payer = One Insurance company monopoly that is publicly traded and shorted via America's 401K retirement system, which will dictate quarterly raises in Premium payments, to off set the quarterly earnings beatings. Said recipients can't go else were because they are monopoly remember. Other insurance companies are illegal operations. All they can do is stand there and take it, much like the Obama care mandate. Except "0" choice and no chance of there ever being one.

Where as with socialized medicine you can always supplement your care with what every insurance policy you want.

I'm so glad I could help you, I know you want to be smart.
