Shut down the government…..
Just shut it down. Absolutely, entirely, and completely, shut it down. For all the people who waited til the last minute to get your passports, too bad. Suffer. This is more important.
We simply can not afford to fund the Affordable Care Act. The Affordable Care Act is unaffordable. We already have massive wealth transfer from young to old in the form of social security and medicare. We don’t need another wealth transfer from young, single men (forcing them to buy something that they don’t need just to get them into the risk pool to make things cheaper for old people.) This is ridiculous.
Everyone screams about climate change and hurting the environment really hurts our children. I don’t know about that. But these government programs are nothing but generational theft. We are stealing from our children. Stealing from them. That is all this is, simply because ordinary people are not responsible enough to save enough of their own hard earned wealth for their future healthcare needs. That is all this AFA is all about….
We can’t have single payer in the United States because all research and development at big pharma would instantly END. The US “for profit” health care system drives healthcare research and development for the entire world.
THE ENTIRE WORLD.
If the US got on board with the inane British and the Canadians with their single payer systems (where the government could set the price for pills they way they do in the Commonwealth nations), there would be no way Pharmacutical companies could ever recoop their $100,000,000 investments in R&D for new lifesaving drugs. So the rest of the world “sucks off” the United States willingness to have a for profit system. (We discover it here so they socialists can have it THERE.) If we did what THEY ALL DID then there would be none for anyone. So we have to keep it for profit.
I want them to shut the government down. Republican Congressmen and women? Don’t worry about your jobs. Your constituents will LOVE YOU for doing this, they will. Hold firm. Give the Presidents and your fellow Congressmen nothing, nothing. They get zero. Do not fund the government, let it shut down, your children will love you for it, believe me.
