Penalize primary care physicians by reducing reimbursements across the board for Medicaid patients, this is the Obamacare solution. Too much expense from diagnostic testing? Slash the availability of diagnostic equipment like Canada does. Oh brave new world where eligibility for care doesn't preclude dying while waiting in line to receive your health care ration.
yes. because those who advocate for such fear inequality so much that they pine for being equally miserable. although, those at the top of the food chain would never submit to such accommodations - but their loyal followers will; and as long as it’s a 50.1% majority they will try to force it on all of us under the guise of democracy.

Don't forget that the bureaucracy rationing healthcare in the public interest of course have superior healthcare for themselves just as Federal employees administering Social Security enjoy a far superior Federal retirement system funded by taxpayers.

Why do you think it's ok that we knew a difficult situation was coming and waited till the last minute is ok?

So you choose to carry the guilt for something that 'could have been', but was not. If that sets you right in the eyes of your mind, then have at it, but don't carry anyone else with you on your guilt trip, 'k?

Because to scurry about to 'address' a situation that was intentionally set up to either try and make the current administration look like a jerk, or a door mat, and they chose the less damaging to this country, and you still have no respect for the fact that non-citizens attempted to push their way into a place they had no right to demand entrance to.

You go and demand entrance to a foreign country after bypassing all proper procedures, and let us know how that goes for you.

Now, back to topic. As to people's access to health care, and I will say this clearly for the comprehension impaired: INSURANCE IS NOT HEALTHCARE. IT IS A PAYMENT METHOD.

Access actually gives the service. Insurance doesn't.

As to pre-existing coverage, I agree that people should have coverage. But they should pay a higher premium for that coverage, otherwise we are rewarding irresponsibility with no penalty. Why should other people have to pay ENTIRELY for someone else's irresponsibility? Yes, there are exceptions, such as low income groups. I've covered that subject a number of times, yet people, you included, have walked away from those suggestions and continue to bang their head on the wall and wail how horrible the US system is without trying to do something real to fix it.
