To everyone out there who is afraid that social medicine is a step closer to comunism, think about this.
it is very hard to get insurance if you are considered high risk or have pre existing conditions. well....what the hell do you think we're trying to get insurance for?!
For most people, the easiest way to get health insurance is if you have a job were you are working full time and have these kinds of benefits. but..in today's economy, this is a very rare thing to attain.
This means that the people without health insurance also dont have very good jobs and sources of income.
When these people need medical help, they cannot afford it and are only going deeper into debt.
I know this because I am one of these people.
Fear is no reason to deprive people of the help they need. We need government for a reason, wither we like the direction it's heading in or not.
