Re: "Real Socialism" Has Indeed Been Tried... And It's Been A Disaster

Red State Voters Like Democratic Ideas Much More Than Democratic Candidates From Florida to Missouri to Utah, progressive ballot measures won as their advocates lost. How does the party fix that? Perhaps the most promising development for progressive Democrats in Tuesday’s elections came from ballo...

Re: "Real Socialism" Has Indeed Been Tried... And It's Been A Disaster

No wage increases in 20 yrs. Prices of health care, food and everything else has skyrocketed but millions can't afford them because they don't make a living wage. The crooks on Wall Street sucked people into a scheme that made them rich because capitalism allowed them to. Only one crook went to the ...

Re: Trump inaction

Fire and police are paid for through taxes by the feds or the state. Not sure which down there. Health care can be too. At one time we didn't have greedy corps trying to persuade the Gov to go private because private is oh sooooo much better for all of us. Our system was fabulous until that started ...

Re: Trump inaction

The Fraser Institute from which you quote, is a partisan right wing propaganda organisation that does nothing but lie. I am a senior and currently there is no relief from me having to pay exorbitant prices for my meds. I would rather see the feds handle a program than individual provinces. That way ...

You are such a sad case. You have nothing to be greatfull for I can see. But you do seem to know how to cheat the system, so All is Not lost. :wink: Hardly Doka - just reporting the facts. In order to be eligible for Medicare and Medicaid to pay for long term care, unless you have a trust fund for ...

Re: Nearly half the world lives on less than $5.50 a day: World Bank

Read the article at lunch RA. I know that here, you have to spend yourself into poverty to, say, make yourself eligible for Medicare/ Medicaid and nursing home care - or, sign over your property to your kids way before you get to that point. But, it's far worse RA with hospital closures escalating ...

Re: Nearly half the world lives on less than $5.50 a day: World Bank

We have similar problems with our system but at least we don't go broke when we are sick. Our system switched to computer mainframe about 10 yrs ago. I was horrified and asked my Doc where our info goes and he told me the entire country's health history is stored in Alberta. He sympathised with my c...

Wow Kbot, you are sounding a little weak now about your past hatred of Obama Care. In the past you couldn't say enough bad things about it. Now that it's under the control of the Republicans you've changed you tune a bit. Have you suddenly realised that no health care system is perfect? But the one...

Kbot Quote There is a lot that I like about Obamacare. But, here's the issue - there is still all those middlemen in between that will do their best to make sure that they get their pound of flesh. So, reimbursement's under Obamacare Care go down, and rather than face loss of revenue for supplies, ...
