Default National Debt Problem 'Is Very Simple': 'We Use A Lot of Healthcare'

And the government once again proves, they. just. don't. get. it.

Do we use a lot of healthcare? Yes, American's do. Is that the reason why prices are so high or the US Government is in debt? NO.

Love this comment for the comments to the article...



Americans spend well over $500BILLION a year on illegal immigrants directly and >>>> $500+billion on anchor babies whoa re considered Americans when figures like this are published. So well over $1TRILLION of our annual $3.8trillion budget is usurped by foreign criminals. Over 1/4 of our annual budget taken by foreign invaders.
Healthcare is also a major for profit scam in America. For example some 14 million Americans get screening colonoscopies every year at an average cost of $7,500 EACH or over $1TRILLION a year. In fact every single cancer organization including professional medical groups state there is NO PROVEN BENEFIT in incidence or mortality of colon cancer by doing these expensive invasive tests. ZERO proven benefit over a $1 hemoccult screen that is 100% safe and non-invasive.
Then Obama made the problem 1,000 times worse by selling Americans into generational indentured servitude to for profit insurance corps instead of creating an honest national healthcare system where we spend our money on healthcare that is needed instead of very expensive useless and potentially harmful invasive testing that's a great money maker with zero liability for the healthcare providers.

This is a ploy to say "ObamaCare is great, but because it can't solve everything, we MUST take the next step towards full government control."...

We all (with more than two brain cells) knew this is where this administration wanted to push it.

But seriously, blaming the national debt on healthcare? There isn't a facepalm emoticon that expresses my frustration on this subject.

Those that will believe it? The uneducated masses.....

personal debt is due to mortgages being too high compared to average income and yes health care.
our national debt may have a lot to do with-among other things-- health care if the states are having a hard time funding clinics and emergency rooms. they would want more money from the fed gov. the gov of florida hasnt even expanded medicaid but takes the money anyway from the feds then lies to them again the next year.
but natl debt is way bigger than that. we have cut the deficit, working on debt wud be smart and at the same time bear in mind we must invest (infrastructure, education and at this point jobs, better trade deals) to grow.

I have waited to put in my 2 cents worth. And adding to the already high cost of this new Obama H.C. is that even those whom don't pay any federal taxes have been sent these notes that must be sent back to the IRs and kept track of..

Yet like yours mine is already filled out and they have all the info in correct from. So now they want to start a new files in some non secure database.

By having us go find their stupid tax form and add a stamp (dang it I just found out why they are doing this, more stamps to be sold) and mail it back to them.

Now think about what I have said and not the fact some of us don't pay Federal income taxes.
Add each little cost up just for this and what lies ahead as this new database is Hacked.

And remember this is just on top of all this other costs already mentioned.

1.. Hire some new person whom will get a great benefit package, at great wages and a non beatable Union. To fill out this info onto the being sent form to each of us.

2.. Sh*t I am not going to give this a second thought as this is just out of any Progressive Liberal play book.

Pack the govt., with their voters looking to keep them in their position even if they fail this time around.

You realize now that Trump is just the guy to fire each and every one of these govt workers.... Go Trump......

P.S. 100% P.T.S.D. 1 failed marriage I didn't have time to make the second one fail as she passed on me. @ daughters who are total bums, take what they can and don't bother to say

Yea the cost to get one of these checks is crap on my mnd from way to much of a non needed war, opps what did they call the Nam, I did forget that much.
