A Slight Majority….

Slight Majority

It is somewhat encouraging to see that a slight majority of the Republicans want to get the government running again and are not obsessed with denying 30 million of our citizens affordable health care.

When are you going to get enough guts to finally take back control from those wing nuts who have kidnapped your party???????   Better sooner than later.  A good first start would be to put a Speaker of the House in their that has an ounce of guts to stand up to those who are destroying the GOP…..

    The Republicans should be very scared of the independents feelings on this matter. I hope we do progress to a single-payer soon.

      It seems the only thing that Mr. Boenher responds to now is the Tea Party. That could certainly drive independents away. Why he can’t see that I don’t know?

    Yes, universal health care. We all pay in, we all
    receive.

      Yep, that should be what it is all about… But why such resistance among the GOP?? That is my seemingly never ending question.

      Hi Mary. Single payer means that there is one organization that negotiates rates and pays the healthcare bills of all of a country’s citizens. Medicare, which I know you are on, is an example. In the private insurance environment each of hundreds of different insurance carriers negotiates it own rates and who they will deny health coverage to. Medicare covers all seniors, except I guess for some who are very very wealthy and have opted out, a government agency does all that.

      Most of the rest of the world has single payer systems. That is how they have managed to keep healthcare cost so manageable whereas ours is totally out of control.
