"Dude, Where's My Economy?"
The latest trend in attacking universal healthcare, is to blame Obamacare for the lack of jobs. Because we all know how universal health care has killed the jobs market in other countries which somehow now have lower unemployment than the U.S. And these people attacking Obamacare as the root of all job-loss, couldn't possibly admit that the lack of jobs has anything to do with the shipping of millions of jobs and entire industries to other countries. Because they are the ones who did it. If the sole goal was to collapse U.S. wages down to that of China to amplify profits, which will be the ultimate outcome of this "industrial arbitrage", then it would have been a hell of a lot better to just force everyone to take a massive pay cut up front and still keep their jobs. Because this asinine notion of shipping the economy to another country AND then taking a forced pay cut anyway due to the lack of jobs, is the worst of all possible outcomes. Not only will the wages be collapsed, but there goes the intellectual capital, engineering expertise, management expertise and the entire supply chain. Who is going to be the erstwhile "consumer" on the other side of this fiasco? The U.S. is literally being run by the biggest group of dumbfucks to ever run any country, anywhere, ever. Game show hosts really. They can't keep this economy together, because they didn't build it. They only sold it.
If You Want Healthcare, Go To Prison
Currently a convicted felon doing hard time, is guaranteed healthcare inside the prison. However, as soon as he steps outside and gets his first minimum wage job, he will likely have no healthcare whatsoever. If he has kids, his best option, if they get sick, is to pull up to the hospital and drop them off at the curb and pray the hospital will treat them for free. If he goes inside, he may well end up bankrupt.
Growth of U.S. healthcare costs as % of GDP
It's all just another so-called "system" run by and for morally void man-boys, who will end up bankrupting themselves in the not-too-distant future. If I were them, I would be more concerned over the solvency of their own healthcare plans, which are by no means sustainable - especially Medicare. The current projection is that Medicare will become insolvent by 2026, however, these projections just assume that the U.S. government will have unlimited borrowing power in the interim to sustain the ongoing deficits. When that "assumption" gets tested, then the insolvency projection will move up to that timeframe known as "now".
Soon prisoners will have the best healthcare. As always, you can't make this shit up...
