  • Please do updated video on Obamacare! I just got done with school and I have health insurance thru my employer. It’s a High Deductible plan, benefit HSA card, but I still feel like I’m bleeding money for my meds AND my health insurance. Since the open enrollment period is coming up, I would love an updated video:)

  • Why does John Oliver make me so happy watching home…. but makes me so sad with these gd topics that just make me feel like I cannot make a difference…. God. I love John Oliver.

  • I know this sounds completely insane but if you cut back a little on the military and on golf trips for the White House then there would be finances for a healthcare system ��

  • as an Indian citizen I was a little surprised that you put India on the list of countries which provides universal coverage. While this is theoretically true, as we have government funded hospitals and various states have programs covering the costs of poor citizens in private hospitals and clinics, the general quality of the government funded healthcare is poor and our public health policies rarely yield desirable results. Public hospitals are filthy, understaffed and unequipped to provide proper care and most people use private health insurance. This isn’t to say that universal healthcare is bad as i do support universal healthcare programs. But you should definitely not put India on that list as most people given the choice would go to a private insurer…

  • Does anybody even listen to the lies about the numbers. 1/2 million, over 1 million, 300,000 Blah Blah According to the OMB & CBO people have enrolled and that does not equal having insurance coverage. They will figure out a way to avoid the lack of people having coverage. More delays or something as soon as they figure out how to spin it.

  • The countries in all of Europe have government healthcare, bur somehow it hasn’t bankrupted or destroyed democracy in Europe. Apparently the Trump administration is so incompetent that it is unable to supervise something that works in many other countries. Who is gullible enough to actually believe in death panels?

  • LUCKILY YOU VOTED TRUMP AND HE KILLED ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL OF IT!!! goooooooooooooood job……….. you nearly had german standards… you F’ed it you like only AMERICUH could ^^

  • I have not seen anyone as thick as Biden, Obama, Heris, Clinton… or Democratic gangsters. A group of brazen, thick-faced, unscrupulous, immoral people, the most irresponsible and filthiest in human history. I can’t believe how their parents gave birth to such a herd of animals, sadly. If you do evil, you will get the most evil results, the demons in human disguise.

  • Positive selection’ is no ordinary example of academic jargon. The term is frequently used by evolutionary biologists, who tell us it is responsible for the development of ‘traits that define our species—notably the enormous brain, advanced cognitive abilities, complex vocal organs, bipedalism and opposable thumbs.’ And,” continues Catron, “Gruber refers to mass abortions of unborn babies, whom he describes as ‘marginal children,’ as an example of positive selection that includes the added benefit of saving the government money. Should we be worried that an architect of Obamacare seems to be an advocate of what sounds an awful lot like eugenics?
    It is eugenics, through and through. There is no mention of “reproductive freedom”.
    It’s also racist. Somehow, the financial benefits are considerable, as they mostly affect poor “women of color.” On welfare.
    Like I say: funny how it didn’t get much attention.

  • Why be named after…….. A black guy. Why do people still talk about and try to erase Obama? Is it because there are still lots of racists in this country. I’m looking at you square states.

  • Funny how the “Government” keeps moving the deadline after the government knows that if Obama care doesn’t meet its quota (which it was already suppose to be set) it will be shut down this isn’t fare, because in 2015 they may make us all use the chip. I’m not signing up now nor then I’m not going to sign up for anything in a dictated country. As we have been fighting against dictator for years, what will be next?????????

  • The introduction to this video I would agree would catch anyone’s attention. Simply because these are a lot of questions you average American would ask about Obamacare. Thinking the nonsense questions come from people doubting what Obama can do for us as a president. Many not paying attention to the things he has done in the past, but listening to those who know just as much as they do. Stating what Obamacare is exactly helps those who are confused or don’t know what it is or what is has and is doing for us as citizens. Guaranteed Issues and Community Ratings being the two that really stood out. Guaranteed Issues being because it states that NO ONE should be denied insurance if they wanted to purchase it. Just because they are sick does not mean it is necessarily their fault, it could be something that is airborne or even they could have received it unknowingly. And, Community Rating is the fact that everyone should be charged the same no matter whether rich or poor, sick or healthy. Based off the Philosophy courses I have taken, this raises the question of should the rich pay for the healthcare of the poorer families? To me this should be something that should be put on the to do list of the government. Though no one will get denied insurance, how will they pay for it when they don’t have the funds. Knowing that there is a way around the poor having to pay for insurance puts many people at ease, the process called Subsidies of Obamacare. Making it so the government can pitch in and help out as much as possible, showing that Obama really does want everyone to try and have health insurance. To me, it’s good for everyone to have insurance, because growing up and knowing people who didn’t have insurance, were always so afraid to even get sick because they knew they would have to pay an arm and a leg in order to get better. It breaks hearts to know that many go without because they don’t have the funds. Having Obamacare is very much a benefit to this Country.

  • Capitalism: giving u the freedom to buy what you want and competitors striving to get better.
    Socialism: forcing you to buy something against your will because it’s the law.

  • I know this is an older post, but I have a friend who claimed that due to Obamacare he is no longer able to get Oxycodone 30mg covered by his insurance. Is there any accuracy to this?

  • Like most with most things, people are uninformed; of course, it seems that being uninformed causes everyone to engage in mass panic and make up stories and facts that get twisted along the grapevine. Make sure you know a source is credited before you believe it! The plan for Obamacare is simply trying to do its best to provide healthcare that is readily available for those who cant afford it, and everything only works if it is balanced so I would suggest that people are educated about it and do their best to go along with the new system.

  • I love how he just casually blames Republicans for the problems with the ACA, when Democrats had a filibuster proof majority for 2 years!

  • Go and watch psyco (documental about universal healt) its awesome to watch and see wtf its happeing in usa… and for those that says i dont want to pay for a service i wont use… trust me nobody its planing to get sick…. its not on their plan get cancer….

  • Can we appreciate for a moment that the one guy said that Adolf Hitler, the biggest opponent of Communism EVER, a guy that started a world war to fight bolchevists, brought communism to Germany? Huuuuh???

  • Finally made it to the end of the playlist! After watching all the episodes I can only think how it might be better if it played from oldest to newest. Or maybe Youtube could work on a way to allow people to watch playlists in reverse order. Also, if anyone running the show comes back to look at old comments, keep up the good work, I love what you all do.

  • uSSa medical is the worst in the world, even cuba has a better care system for its people. Life has a price in the uSSA and the rich enjoy it.

  • LOL @ openly shilling for Obamacare while trying to come off as objective. Must have missed the memo that 30,000,000 will still be left uninsured. Also, it’s a tax, not a fine. Otherwise, the law is unconstitutional. Anyway, I bet they wish they had waited until after October 1st to make this video.

  • Is there a video where Obamacare gets revisited?  I imagine some of the things noted have changed, and there is more detail to go into regarding what has gone on.

  • THIS IS WHAT HEALTH CARE IS. IT’S NOT A PLAN. IT’S NOT AN INSURANCE POLICY. WHEN YOU GET SICK YOU SEE A DOCTOR. IF YOU NEED TO GO INTO HOSPITAL, YOU GO. IF YOU NEED MEDICATION YOU GET IT AN AFFORDABLE COST. THAT’S WHAT HEALTH CARE IS. AND YOU DO NOT GO BANKRUPT DOING SO. Here in Australia we have had had Universal Single Payer health care since 1975. If you get sick, you can see a Doctor, your Doctor, the Doctor you like or have been seeing for 20 years. If you need to go to hospital for an operation or other treatment, you go. If it’s not urgent, you may have to wait a week or a month or a few months. The horror, the horror. Urgent treatment is done that day or the next, no waiting. Necessary medications are subsidized. I pay approx $9.60 a month for $2,000 worth of medications. Is the system perfect? No, it needs work. It always will. Especially when out version of The Republican Party; (called The Liberal Party), does it’s best to wreck it every time they get into power. The cost to an individual? It’s either 1.5% or 2% levy on your income tax. And like I said we’ve had it for 45 years; and no communist takeover has occurred.

  • Thanks a bunch for doing these videos. I’ve been having a difficult time getting a clear explanation on a lot of the things you cover.

  • Just thought I’d peak at that website abetterhealthcareplan.com not much has changed except inexplicable links to baseball betting? wtf.

  • It is not the federal government’s job to solve social problems. It should not in any way be involved with healthcare unless it is for veterans.

  • Obamacare is shit. You can add roses to a pile of shit. Its still shit. A huge boon for insurance companies is not a good thing for the people. Only in america would people think a bill written by insurance companies is good for healthcare.

  • First point, it saddens me to know that people with pre-existing conditions have had a harder time getting insurance for healthcare and have even been denied in the past. With Obamacare no one can be denied insurance and they are charged the same amount as those that do not have a pre-existing condition. A point was brought up that with this new healthcare system, healthy people would be less likely to buy insurance because they can just wait until they’re sick. With Obamacare those people that do not buy insurance are charged a fee. I think this is a good idea because ultimately it costs more to not have insurance and it costs more to be sick. I would rather buy insurance and be covered than get in some sort of illness and have to pay the fees myself.

  • Okay, to be fair, I am thinking futuristic there, but still, we should try something to drastically lower our healthcare costs, and the initiative shouldn’t solely be concerned with insurance prices.

  • And good as the idea sounds about increasing competition, many companies prefer to have local monopolies because their competitors will do the same and its more profitable.

  • How funny with all of his boasting in about replacing it Trump and the Republicans have done nothing…except make the ACA harder to get. Trump loves to run out the clock. And fitting if healthcare, as things currently stand, as being his albatross.

  • The one thing about Obamacare that you need to know is Obama would never make use of it. It’s just a tax on the poor and a Ponzi scheme so get the lube bend over
    And grit your teeth!

  • 2:56 “You wanna kill my grandparents? You come through me first!” Yowza. From the POV of March 2020 to????, this aged… in a way. Can’t decide if it aged well or like shoe cheese.

  • Dear producers, you demonstrate from video one that you are either funded by deep pockets with agenda or you are simply presenting boiler plate bias. Nothing you can say from here can hold any credibility. From one healthcare exec to another. This was two steps away from propaganda

  • Please think about this, if you elect a person that thinks he has a goat in his house that he is unable to catch…… are you still wondering why the rest of the world laugh at you?

  • Why does the Republican party exist like people are dying and need public healthcare and all they care about is some arbitrary communist takeover like really?? Get a life
    Anyways tax the rich and give us healthcare goddammit ��

  • you know something is fishy when its only painted in positive light. What about the doctors that do not exist? Do you force people to become doctors to handle the extra traffic? I would like to see an objective video rather than leftist propaganda that starts off with, if you differ in opinion you believe obama is hitler and wants to murder your children. I was not even close to convinced and i am open minded, thanks for being a douche bag a bully by painting anyone curious of the down sides as retarded. You know, questioning major issues, thats just stupid after all

  • When I think about who I want to make the decision about whether I get life saving treatment or not, I deifnitely want it to be some suit at an insurance company. As always, good job America!

  • I understand the general concept of Obamacare however, penalizing people who don’t want insurance is wrong. In my mind, insurance is a luxury for people. If they choose not to partake in that luxury than so be it. It is not the place of the government to force someone into buying government insurance. I see it as a person handing someone a ticket for an all inclusive cruise and saying “you need to have this therefore you will buy it whether you get seasick or not”. If someone does not want to be insured through the government then that is their business. Now, if someone wants to be insured but can’t afford it, this is where I see the positive in Obamacare. This really just boils down to which way will get the government the most money and they do not really care about the well being of individuals. Making it difficult on citizens who want to keep their own private insurance by having them pay a penalty which supplies the insurance for others is ridiculous.

  • Hindsight is a bitch. Now we actually have death panels under Trump because of COVID-19. People being prioritized for treatment based on long term survivability.

  • Do you see that nail in the wall neart the upper right corner? It almost gave me a heartattack, I thought my screen was damaged.:D

  • So they want healthy people to buy insurance so they fine the people that pay for stuff and not the people that get it for free. I think that is y people hate it if ur successful ur being punished

  • And here we are in 2020 where this ass of a Paul Ryan plan is again brought forward as a ACA replacement but in a new form, an even worse form, a far, far worse form.

  • Guy who yelled you’d have to go through him to kill his grandma in 2020 is strapping his grandma to an altar to burn in the name of wall Street.

  • Sorry.
    I should have dealt with subjec but, yes.
    Trump and Barr going to Supreme Court to get rid of Pre-existing conditions coverage up until June 2020.
    Meanwhile, HE HAS TH RE DISRESPECT FOR YOU.
    YEAH YOU AND IS FIGHTING FOR TOOTH AND NAIL TO CANCEL I HAVE. I THIS PAST JUNE
    WITH NO REPLACEMENT
    THEY DON’T EVEN HAVE A PLATFORM

  • Aren’t we all glad it worked out perfectly and nothing bad like people loosing coverage and insurance costs tripling for less comprehensive care didn’t happen!

  • I have not seen anyone as thick as Biden, Obama, Heris, Clinton… or Democratic gangsters. A group of brazen, thick-faced, unscrupulous, immoral people, the most irresponsible and filthiest in human history. I can’t believe how their parents gave birth to such a herd of animals, sadly. If you do evil, you will get the most evil results, the demons in human disguise.

  • I disagree that people who get their insurance through their employer won’t see a change. Employers are always looking to lower spending on healthcare for employees. They now have a way to do that significantly by cutting it all together, leaving employees to get insurance on their own. So now you have a large group of individuals looking for plans, instead of one large group. Prices of an individual plan are going to be significantly higher than when they were able to bargain as a group.

    I’m not saying that we don’t need change, but at the same time we shouldn’t rush something through before we worked out the problems. Of course the ultimate test will happen when it’s implemented.

  • I make about 10k a year and when i went to the site i got told i didn’t qualify for a subsidy and the plans weren’t less than 170 amonth.

  • healthcare.gov told me I don’t qualify for subsidies, but am also exempt from paying a penalty for not having insurance. So nothing changed for me as well…still uninsured and not getting penalized for it. 

  • Having India on that list of countries who have universal coverage is just misleading. The coverage is of 400 dollars a year. The vast, vast, vast majority of people have no access to quality care, and in alot cases any kind of modern care at all. The only quality care is extremely expensive private care, which majority of the country can’t afford, even with insurance. I get that the US healthcare system is an abomination, but please don’t cite India as an example of the places where they get it right.

  • Did he just say the average 2 bedroom apartment is $12,500! There’s no way that’s correct! Oh wait, maybe he meant per year.. That’d make more sense

  • You sir, are a shill. You may have a medical degree from some off-shore but you are a political face-man! You may fool the youngsters but not us oldsters! Besides, working for DHS, CIA, or whoever you really work for must beat ordinary pediatrician hours! Thanks!

  • I keep thinking obamacare was invented to target people who don’t file or pay income tax, they seem to be in the same category as the uninsured. and guess what? you have to file and tell them your income for the year before to get qualified. it is my belief that it was bait to catch non filers.

  • I think the over simplification of who will be affected by Obamacare is not productive in the discourse about healthcare in the US. A better way of explaining it would be to talk about the the changes or additions to regulation of the healthcare industry and how they the lawmakers intend for it to work and how analysis forecast its effectiveness.  

  • Propaganda. Social systems are inherently inefficient and detrimental as proved again and again and again yet the lefties continue to harass the free market and cause instability and inefficiency.

  • Heath Insurance does not make sense for me and i’m sure many many other people. I just went to the healthcare.gov after learning I will be penalized on my tax return this year for not paying for Health Insurance.  The “affordable rates” promoted on the website are anything but… For my area the average was 111 dollars a month with either a 5 or 6 THOUSAND dollar deductable.  I make on average 1200/month.  My budget is 550 for rent, 100 for car insurance, 80 for phone, 50 for internet, 80 for gas, 200 for food.  And all of these are low estimates that total to 1060/month.  If I were to get this health insurance that would leave me with 29 dollars a month.  It would take me 207 months to pay off a 6000 dollar deductable.  Is health care reserved for those who make thousands of dollars a month?

    Rant over, can you explain why health care is so expensive?

  • Being a Washingtonian, generally the people who cannot legitimately afford health insurance are seen for free at the big hospitals. Nothing new it’s been going on for years. Yes, Georgetown, Sibley, Childrens will provide healthcare for free to the poor.

  • I love how at 3:08, John makes a joke pointing out that Obama was a war criminal and the very establishment-friendly audience can’t handle this fact.

  • 2020: Now we slip further into full blown fascism while DtrUMP now still tries to destroy ACA…..no replacement, just a desire to take 30 millions health coverage during a pandemic
    ..Cruelty seems to be the goal and his supporters fight to destroy their own families and homes…secret police vanishing people in cities that are not political allies of the orange blob

    …We may not survive this…

  • What people fail to realize is, Obamacare is put in place to help them. Those who aren’t insured or who were denied insurance in the past are finally going to get the insurance that they deserve. Health insurance is a must, rather you are a healthy person or not. It is horrible to think that a person would be denied insurance because of a preexisting disease. The people with these preexisting diseases are the ones who actually need insurance because of all of their medical supplies and doctors’ visits. It is near impossible to afford to live without insurance because of the price of the medical care. With Obamacare these patients are no longer denied coverage, which is wonderful. Although, not everything in the American health insurance world is changing, many things are. Some changes are; with the guaranteed issue patients cannot be denied insurance, with community ratings everyone is charged the same amount and no one is punished for being sick, if an individual chooses not to buy insurance they are charged $95 or 1% of income (individual mandate). But, if the patient is insured under their employer, Medicare, Medicaid, VA, or any government insurances nothing will be changing for them. With Obamacare everyone is treated equally, though many believe they shouldn’t be forced to buy insurance if they wish not to, it is actually beneficial to them because they might not be sick today, but can’t say the same for tomorrow.

  • How Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton Contributed to Libya’s Slavery Crisis

    “The Obama administration bombed Libya into oblivion while using racist and terrorist rebel groups to do their dirty deeds on the ground.”
    Understandably, it is emotionally painful to witness so many African brothers and sisters being brutally beaten and sold into slavery within present-day Libya. This is yet another important moment for solidarity, Pan-Africanism, Internationalism and general Humanitarianism to be invoked to halt this brutality and saving countl lives. It is also important to note that this tragedy could have been avoided

  • As a young 20-year-old college student I have not seen any difference since this Obama care has been put into effect. After watching this video I believe this system is a very well thought out system. All the poor people will be able to afford this care, even if it is from the help of the government. All the sick people will not be screwed out of a deal just because they are sick, like really?? You are going to punish someone because they are sick? Something that they can’t even help? Also for all the “rich” people who are saying, “I don’t want to buy health care if I don’t need it” well there are also options for you. Either pay the fine, which in all honesty is not all that much, or just realize healthcare is a good option and just buy it. Healthcare is beneficial for everyone because say you get in a car accident, you don’t have health care and the payment will be horrible for you. The price of that bill will be way worse then just making payments. So even is you do not want to have health care just get it as a back up plan because you never know what is going to happen to you. That is why I believe this is a good system.

  • I usually like what you have to say on this channel but I’m still trying to figure out how charging “healthy” people a penalty is not extortion. Because it obviously is…

  • So,Im a teen,Im also an idiot,an ignorant one at that,which is why I wanna ask the following,so if you think Im an idiot for asking this,Im not denying that.
    I am a teen,16 years old,but does that info matter when I want to sign up?
    Do I sign up for it regardless?Or do I make my parents aware of this info and they do it?

  • ? what if I live overseas but am an american citizen and get my health insurance here over seas am I being charged a penalty right now?

  • 4:57 5:05

    Actually, something did change for me, the price of my deductible and premiums. The prices went UP, way up! So, fuck you.

  • Not sure how you, in good conscience, can produce something that is so incomplete. I mean, I appreciate what’s here, but to lampoon people who disagree or have concerns by insinuating that they believe that aliens cured lupus is just sad. Far more compelling would be to acknowledge the drawbacks and challenges of universal healthcare being run by the government and then talk about how those challenges could be addressed. Too bad. I’ve been looking for an impartial source of info, and it looks like my search will have to continue elsewhere…

  • This seems like a REALLY complicated way to make healthcare work. I mean, in the UK you’re not penalised for not having healthcare, you just automatically pay for it through taxes if you are over the untaxed income. It’s that simple! And then, if you ever need to see a doctor, you just turn up and make an appointment or go to the A&E (or ER) and you don’t have to worry about having to sell a kidney to save your heart.

  • can you do a show highlighting the great achievements of Republicans? Not that you’re show is leftist, but it does have a trend of painting Republicans as the enemy, when really they all want the U.S. to achieve, but they have different ways to go about it.

  • So the guy concerned about renovating his house, I think he should really be far more concerned with the fact that the goat surviving 6 years without being specifically fed and taken care of means it’s [email protected]$ing immortal. Also he should probably learn how analogies work before trying to use one again.

  • Can’t we just give everyone nanobots and be done with this? Every nook and cranny will be searched for ailments such as blood clots, viruses and tumors, and they will be fixed without the need of going to a hospital or needing medication.

  • The Obummercare was designed to fail to set up the one-payer system. Good-God everyone that thick on this thread??????????????????

  • 1:55 “And all of those countries are democracies; they voted for it…”

    America IS NOT A DEMOCRACY:

    “And to the REPUBLIC, for which it stands…”

  • Excuse me, I liked the video but I got hung up at 4.00: Did you really mean earning 400% LESS than the Federal Poverty Line?  I’m not that good at math but that seems like an EXTREMELY low amount to qualify for the subsidy? 

  • My man is a diesel mechanic.. He works on tractor trailers. It is still cheaper for him to buy medication OTC rather than paying for insurance to see a doctor and get proper prescription… We are an engaged couplewith no children. And we cannot afford health insurance… Look. I don’t know the solution… I just know that we are in a position that we deserve to afford healthcare. But still the OTC allergy medication my man needs is still cheaper OTC than a prescription… How does that make sense?

  • I visited that site on July 17, 2020. It’s been updated to indicate “promise made, promise kept,” and that my representative “passed quality, affordable health care.”
    Coming completely out of left field, the bullet points that describe the American Health Care Act contain two different links about online sports betting.

  • Hello, I’m from Spain, adn as you may know we have an universal healthcare system so we get coverage for allmost everything (‘cos dentost and stuff like that dosen’t seem to fit in the public system if you are grown up). Anyway, the system is not perfect, as virtually anythingcan improve (things can allways improve).
    The thing I’ve come to think lately is that our system is compatible with private healthcare insurances, so I wonder why the rest of the world don’t work on having a system like ours. It’s expensive, everybody gets that, but isn’t it worth paying (and I mean taxes paying) to be sure that you can have medical services and it its not going to be an extra strike to your month money? And I think I stop right know, ‘cos it’s allready too long for a youtube comment ^^
    Have a nice day:D

  • Can’t believe that in 2020 that Americans still judging people by their race religion or sex instead of their character that’s y there is a racist nazi president

  • Is Obamacare still at risk of getting repealed or defunded? The reason I ask this is because I have heard that Obamacare keeps getting delayed. If people choose Obamacare what are the benefits of switching and how could this help people?

  • Funny that John says Paul Ryan tips that way bc he came back to my college (he’s an alum) and someone who served him did say he didn’t tip at all hmm interesting

  • What about the VA? I heard the budget cuts were terrible for that. And I believe that veterans should come first. And then the army is about to be cut down to pre ww2 size, but that’s a different story.

  • Healthcare in America does not exist. Only our politicians get best healthcare for themselves and their families why ordinary Americans get shit.We get so called copays which are taking from us much before we open doctors doors.

  • So, @Healthcare Triage, it has been 11 months since this video. Any chance of a revised video with reflections and updates? I’m not trying to be political here, just using (many many examples of) anecdotal (NOT DATA!) evidence of issues with this program that looked great on paper. To quote your antibacterial soap video:…but here in the real world…”

  • Oh my, Obama was able to sign up for insurance he doesn’t have to use but forces those who don;t want it to sign up for higher priced insurance. Who cares if Obama was able to pick a plan. He doesn’t have to use it. Only the rest of Americans are being forced out of the plans they loved, to buy higher priced insurance they don;t need. How many women have to pay for prostrate exams? Answer…ALL OF THEM. Obamacare is a total failure.

  • Reminder: Breonna Taylor, a 26-year-old African-American emergency medical technician, was fatally shot by Louisville Metro Police Department (LMPD) officers Jonathan Mattingly, Brett Hankison, and Myles Cosgrove on March 13, 2020.

  • I’m Canadian and I just explained my american girlfriend why it was important that getting private insurance would be mandatory in the new healthcare system they have. I felt smart. I’m happy that the law is finally comming into action. I would assume insurance corporation would have been jerks about her having had a car accident and hospitalisation last year. I’m glad she can enjoy paying the same as everyone else her age.

  • Most of you on here either work for the Federal gov. or don’t have healthcare. I spend approximately $40K a year on a family of four… just on premiums. Most of you on here don’t even make $40K. I hate listening to all the libs cry about what they’re doing for the country while sitting in their mother’s basement.

  • I live in Canada and we have universal health Care. We pay for it through our taxes. It’s a great plan it is not perfect but everyone is covered. In 2014 I was in hospital for almost 5 months and it cost me zero dollars nothing. I had 4 surgeries tons of antibiotics. Physio therapy. With universal health care it doesn’t matter if you’re rich or poor everyone is covered. I have never had to wait to see a doctor. My family doctor is a different story she is busy lady. But if I need to see a doctor I have never had to wait more than a day. Specialist are a different story. I live in a remote part of Canada. Yellowknife Northwest Territories 1000 miles from the nearest big city of Edmonton. We have some specialist working here and they are busy. I had to wait six weeks to see a specialist. If there is no specialist here for what is needed the government flys you to Edmonton. I have to fly to Edmonton once a month to see a eye specialist. They put me up in a hotel and pay all my expenses. Taxi fares food and lodging. Plus the air fare. On one has to mortgage their home to pay for medical bills. No one becomes homeless because they can’t pay their medical costs. It’s a great system not perfect but it works

  • I completely agree with the ideas outlined in Obamacare but I can see where some people are upset by the concepts it involves. For example, it is clear to me why many citizens are upset by the fact that they are being forced to buy health insurance even if they don’t want it just because it will help benefit those that do need it. They might say that this infringes on their personal autonomy to make decisions for themselves and instead they are being forced into something they don’t want by our government. But having health insurance isn’t a bad thing and you never really know when you’ll need it. I suppose this is why some say they’ll just purchase it when it becomes necessary but sometimes that is too late. And why should we care about those people that do need it? Why not just have every man for themselves in this dog-eat-dog world? Well, in order to be morally just beings, there are some ethical principles we need to abide by. One of which is benefice. This principle states that we need to take positive steps to help each other, not just refrain from harmful acts. By not purchasing healthcare because it doesn’t benefit our personal lives, we are breaking this rule because it does effect the lives of others negatively. The cost of their health insurance goes up considerable, making more people bail out, and the cost goes up again. The so called “death spiral” for private insurance companies is not a myth and to avoid it, it is crucial that we all purchase health insurance. Furthermore, this principle doesn’t effect us all, like it stated in the video. The only people being effected by this law are those who do not currently have healthcare, which is not the vast majority of us in this country. And there are subsidies available to help those that will be forced to buy it but cannot afford to. Our government isn’t making people pay money that they don’t have. Obamacare is set out to help us, not hurt us.

  • Hi Aaron (and other youtubers),

    It’s doubtful that you or anyone else may see this, but I have a burning question. What happens to the minimally housed in emergency rooms? Are they already under Medicaid, or is there a more complex set of circumstances that governs that area? How are medical expenses solved for them? 

  • Although the Republican’s found it barbaric what’s the problem with extermination of poor worthless trash.
    Positive selection’ is no ordinary example of academic jargon. The term is frequently used by evolutionary biologists, who tell us it is responsible for the development of ‘traits that define our species—notably the enormous brain, advanced cognitive abilities, complex vocal organs, bipedalism and opposable thumbs.’ And,” continues Catron, “Gruber refers to mass abortions of unborn babies, whom he describes as ‘marginal children,’ as an example of positive selection that includes the added benefit of saving the government money. Should we be worried that an architect of Obamacare seems to be an advocate of what sounds an awful lot like eugenics?
    It is eugenics, through and through. There is no mention of “reproductive freedom”.
    It’s also racist. Somehow, the financial benefits are considerable, as they mostly affect poor “women of color.” On welfare.
    Like I say: funny how it didn’t get much attention.

  • Aaron
    Absolutely love your healthcare triage videos. I have been preaching these messages for years but your presentations are terrific. Other topics:
     -Screening test misconceptions
    -Unnecessary tests
    -When meds can be stopped or tapered
    -Hospice myths
    -Misconceptions about bone health, vit D and calcium
     Keep up your good work

  • I love that guy screaming about this bill killing his grandparents and only a few months ago the conservative talking heads were like maybe your grandparents should sacrifice themselves for the rest of us(corporate interests)

  • It’s funny looking at this today how Republicans were so worried about old people death panels and yet as soon as the coronavirus started they were all saying the elderly should be willing to give their lives to save the economy

  • America is such a backwards country in so many things. Look, you pay for insurance, through a private plan, you pay for other people’s healthcare. It’s a pool, thanks to a coupe of Scottish priests, in the 18th century, there became this system, were by you can pay a company monthly payments, they use this money, along with that of thousands of others, as well a from companies, to pay for healthcare of those covered. They negotiate with providers, to reduce their costs, they float the company and generate capital from investment in, and also invest out, diversify, to generate more. This way they make profits. That money you pay in, you don’t get back. It funds other people who’ve been sick that year, and bought in. Thus, you are paying for other peoples care. People who theoretically could afford their own. They also want to, by nature, cover as little as possible, to retain as much as possible in profits.

    They nature of this system, leaves the most needy, most vulnerable. Those who cannot pay in, are not covered. Those who cannot afford excessive payments, wind up under covered.

    So not only are you paying for other people,. you’re paying for other people who need it less than other’s not being covered. Come on, even the ‘Right’ in the US has to be able to see that unless you feel that only people of means, deserve life, even if to you it doesn’t make sense to pay for other people, it makes even less sense to pay for other people who don’t need it, so third parties can gain wealth, gambling on over all public health, your health.

    It still works.. but it leaves the most needy behind the eight ball. This is the fundamentally flawed assumption of the ‘Right’ in the US. All people who don’t have means, are lazy moochers who don’t want to work or have money, and the security and freedoms it brings, they just want to sit about… doing what? I don’t know… and bludge.. collecting food stamps, welfare cheques, and free healthcare. They have engineered their own “neediness”.

    I cannot even begin to list all the studies both inside the US and without, which show that this section of society is the smallest. The reasons for low income, or unemployment, are diverse.. but conscious choice is one of the smallest sectors. To begin with, America’s ‘Starvation Wage’ minimum wage is huge part, as is outsourcing labour, entrenched poverty, generational poverty, mental and physical health, lack of facilities and opportunities within communities, even poor business choices, or crime (such as people having their wealth wiped out by white collar crime)… are all by far the more prevalent reasons for people to need welfare, including subsidized healthcare.

    How can anyone feel such negativity towards doing something, paying for other’s, they already do, when they should really be feeling revulsion at paying for other’s don’t need them to, and more, those who don’t need it at all…  the high income bracket folks buy the same insurance you do, but through many many means, can in turn negotiate to pay less in, for more out… with you footing the difference.

    People in the Right in the US who oppose socialized medicine, also oppose Abortion, in most case.. they are pro life ( a compromised position the moment you form a mob and do violence at abortion clinics, I would argue)… but then when the teenage girl from a broken home, a third generational poverty home, who’s family failed her, who’s community is underserviced, and where opportunities are lacking, falls pregnant… and keeps the child… is cited a s burden on society. Hang on a minute, you won your argument, no one is born with morality.. it’s conditioned… your arguments of right to life, worked… but no…    she’s a burden… she’s not.. not working because she is a single woman who lacked opportunities, had a broken childhood, and lives in a place which is underserviced and has no money to get out, and now has chosen to keep and raise her baby as a single mother… she’s a ;leech who had a baby for bucks.

    I could go on and on about examples. I wont.

    I will say that a single user pays State system, with a private option for anyone who wished, funded through a set levy, which can be discounted for those on low income, and voided for those who cannot afford it, would be less than many of you are paying now for healthcare, and would effectively eliminate the thirty million American’s not covered, and the, by some reports, forty million under covered.

    What would it cost your hip kick? Nothing.. in Australia.. 500 bucks a year… lets say it cost American’s a thousand flat, still less than what it costs your per capita now. As stated in another video about outcome, Survival Rates V Mortality Rates, by Dr Caroll, it wouldn’t effect outcomes all that much either. In fact, in some areas.. the statistics are clear. Dr Caroll used Cancer for his explanation, but look at life expectancy, and infant mortality rates…almost ALL the countries on this videos list, have HIGHER L.E. and LOWER infant mortality, and achieve it for HALF or closer even to a THIRD of the costs of the US.

    “But America has 300 million people”… the last argument. Japan has 130,000,000 million… they spend less than any Western nation, according to a 2008 WHO study, and achieve the highest outcomes. The difference between Denmark’s 5 million, and the US pop. of 300,000,000 is significant, but the difference between 360,000,000 and 120,000,000 isn’t any where near as much.

    No matter how you look at it, there’s NO real excuse, except ‘I pay my way, you pay yours’.. but in that case.. withdraw from Society. Please. Because like or not, Society is a collective (evil commy word isn’t it….  predating the word Communism as political word and ideology by centuries, but meh)… you drive on state funded roads, you are defended by local, state and federal police, you are protected by the Military of the State, you have education, and healthcare, and even interest rates on loans… indirectly supported by the State. EVERY SINGLE Conservative/Libiterian/Capitalist right, you people cite as Negative Right, inviolate, which is the only kind there is, is in fact a positive right, because you remove yourselves from this ‘Collective’ called “Society” then you remove yourself FROM all aspects of it… including having ANYONE in a uniform of with a gavel from having TO ACT to enforce your ‘Negative Rights’

    Greed and selfishness, mixed with fear, and brainwashing, is a horrible thing America. Consider things like Obamacare, a mild trial course of part of  a cure. You already had them water down your medicine enough it might not work.. but I hope for the sake for millions of your fellow Americans, it does, if just a little.
