Topic: State of the Union - healthcare costs
Posted: Wednesday, February 6, 2019 10:58:52 AM
Kirill Vorobyov, capitalism has failed in this area. Our previous administration thought it was a good idea to mandate that all Americans have health insurance. Who benefited? Big insurance companies of course!! The "Affordable Care Act" didn't make care affordable at all. It made health insurance the law, with a big annual penalty for not having it! Not only do I have to pay the penalty for not having insurance, I have to pay out-of-pocket all the outrageous prices the healthcare industry would pass along to my insurance, if I had any. Same with prescription medications. No insurance means I have to pay out-of-pocket. If it weren't for public assistance programs offered by the state where I live, I would already be dead from not being able to afford basic healthcare.

Is there an answer? I don't know. Socialism looks pretty good sometimes.

Perhaps that was once true, but it is only true now for those women who are satisfied with that station in life. I am not. Those who desire to be independent and self-supporting are more than able to do so in our current culture. Still, it was a thought-provoking Quote of the Day!
Topic: Eraser dust?

I agree with Wilmar (USA). In my mind, the term "dust" implies much smaller particles. The term "eraser crumbs" fits better.
