Old Hack and Privatized Healthcare .

Old Hack needs a little moral support... Save Old Hack

It's frustrating watching that vid and reading people's comments about what a nightmare Universal Health care WILL Be if implemented. WAKE UP! It's a nightmare NOW. For this guy, and for millions of others like him. You WILL realize this if you find yourself in the unenviable position this man has found himself in.

Some people just prefer to stick their heads in the sand until its happening to them. Americans just couldn't give a shit otherwise. Look at the idiots who still refuse to wake up to Global warming. What is it about the American people that make them so goddamn stupid that they refuse to fix what is OBVIOUSLY broken?

If it's BROKE- FIX IT!

Social Security is keeping YOUR Grandparents and Great grandparents in income as we speak. It may not be much, but as an ex Banker in customer service for Wells Fargo, I have a lot of experience with elderly folks who are ONLY surviving because of those social security checks. It works. Unless you are some asshole neocon that believes that old people that refused to save properly should all just die, like yesterday, so you don't have to pay an extra .01% in taxes. Look at how bad Privatizing America has worked out for reconstruction in New Orleans, the debacle in Iraq, or even stripping away the EPA's powers to regulate safety in this country (mine safety,anyone?)

Sorry, but there is NOTHING worse than doctors telling this man he's got to die because he doesn't have enough money or he didn't pay extra for the extra coverage in clause b, subclause IX, chapter 412, amendment 122 of his insurance policy.

Regulation NOT De-regulation paved the way for success in this country in the early 1900's. It MADE This country prosperous and kept Robber Barons from using the American people as some slave labor force. This man cant get help because Privatization has made him an acceptable loss for their profit margins. Socialized Health care will NOT.

Funny how it's those with money who want to privatize social security. Funny how it's Wall St that wants to manage America's "private" savings accounts.

Ofcourse if you can afford healthcare and retirement, if you're in the top 5% or top 10% of wage earners, then you don't want to pay taxes and if you pay taxes, you certainly don't want your tax dollars going to social services.

The rich in this country have gottne unbelievably greedy and less and less willing to give back, or even acknowledge that is America that makes their wealth possible.

It's the clean air, the safe food, the public roads, the electricity, and public infrastructure that make it possibel for the barons of capitalism to prosper.

With out regulation, Capitalism would not survive. It would burn itself out. It could consume until there was nothing left then die off. It would exploit to unacceptable levels leading to violent revolutions.
