Believe it or not there are Tories working with me who have the same view...
 
 
 
Big bug-bear of mine! I'm an asthmatic, not through choice, yet I have to pay for me prescriptions, yet fag ashers that smoke and want to quit smoking get free help!!! Angry


Move back to Wales, mate - prescriptions are free here!Wink

Everyone deserves health care we are supposed to be humane and civilised mun,
In 1972, Roy Bergiers scored that try and said "that was for you lofty"

American road trip - Matt Frei

Watch from 24 minutes to 28 minutes

Uninsured american man has heart attack, is charged $56,000 for his 36 hours in hospital
then told he needs cancer treatment, that will cost him $110,000
Meanwhile his property value has fallen to $130,000 , so even if he sells his home and lives in a box, he still cant afford to get treatment
 
This isnt an anti american thread, its an anti mitt romnesia thread.

Under obamacare he would be covered as would approx 50 million uninsured americans, romnesia wants to abolish all of obamacare.

Thankfully in Wales and Great Britain, this is something the visionary Lloyd george began 100 years ago with contributions, taxation and the welfare state and the great Neu Bevan fully implemented with the NHS 60 odd years ago!

This election is massively important to all americans and will probably have a lot of repercussions for us too!
Don't suppose said individual had insurance cover then Confused Healthcare insurance in the states is more important than your buildings and contents insurance as there is no NHS style cover, yet so many Americans neglect having it, but are the first to complain when they need it (and don't have it).
Aye just like the part-time £6 an hour lot in our country who don't save for their future mun. 
Mrfwon you frighten meShocked
Up the bum no harm done.
