    Either you guys didn't read the report, or you don't understand what "additional" means.

    P.S.

    Every single state that has thought about “universal healthcare” for its residents has bailed

    Not one has done it. Not even Commiefornia that tries the craziest shit

    Tommy Douglas was gov of Saskatchewan in Canada. He started a universal healthcare system . It was so much better than what they had that the whole country adopted it, He is still the most popular person in Canadian polls. That is why states are dicking with starting it. It can happen if a state creates it. However in America with universal healthcare we can elimimnate the VA, Medicare and Medicaid. That would cut the overall costs a ton. But I doubt states have that option. We also save the ourtrageous costs of healthcare insurance companeies whose function is to deny as much care as they can get away with. More profit. We have an adversarial system with providers. Our system really sucks.

    No, stupid girl. It has to be done on a nationwide basis.

    And the countries who've tried it found that it works.

    Please stop drinking so much.

    Hhmmm your contention is that insurance companies deny care. Does that mean that Medicaid and Medicare will pay for whatever care you want? No limits?

    Private rooms? Specialists? Brand name drugs?

    Why does it have to be done nationwide? Why can’t Commiefornia do it?

    Get back to me about how much you care for others when you can show a receipt having personally paid for their healthcare coverage.

    Are you saying there was no costs at all for the preventative care? Doctors were doing it for free?

    MY insurance has worked perfectly for ME and MY family. I see no need to change the system that was in place in order that I pay more so some freeloader not doing for his family what he should be doing can get something (else) for less.

    Same reason individual states don't have their own armies.

    Please stop drinking so much.
    Name one country with 300+ million people with it.

    Check out the NHS and the patients drinking out of houseplants in order to stay hydrated.

    Dumbass.
