1. The very fact that this is even considered as remotely possible

shows how little we deserve universal health care. "Hey! You know that prohibitively costly set of premiums that NOBODY FUCKING LIKES from their beloved health care provider? Yea. We're going to increase those costs. Make sure to increase your love for your health insurance company accordingly!" We suck.

5. We've needed universal healthcare since Truman. It's no different now.

Disgusting. Healthcare for profit is suffocating us all. Politicians who canít see our nation with care without financial stress are short of vision.

9. Public Assumes The Risk

Insurance companies assume the benefits.
But, they hate socialism.
Another example of non value added layers of profit taking, going sideways.
Their risk models don't include the impact of an epidemic? Fire the execs!

11. Stop paying them.

Get the help, when the bill comes, tell them that you aren't paying them because, well, quite frankly, that they are an unacceptable risk and therefore, you will not authorize them or accept their claims.

Break them, this would be the best time to do so.
