1. That and propaganda that many have swallowed about waiting in lines, etc.

And there will be lines or waits for some stuff we dont usually wait for now, but that is OK, it is almost always that which is not an emergency.

Ultimately it will be better for the majority....

You know why the Koch Bros give so much to medical charity as in hospitals and research and special wings for this or that?

So it will be there for them, their family and their close friends.

NOT for you and me, if we manage to somehow get to take advantage of it, well that is a coincidence.

2. Well, yeah. It's like this new cure for cancer that is effective 93% of the time that is

being touted as a major step forward. Which it totally is. I mean, that's GREAT.

BUT, my wife and I were talking earlier today and I quipped that we probably would not have access through our shitty HMO to such a cure. Because they are about cutting costs and retaining earnings, not about providing the best treatment.
