You are in one of the 4 categories I posted on page one. That’s why you don’t want change and I get it I’d be the same if I were you. But you should post your specific solutions instead of doing the whole “I pulled myself up through hard work“ line just because you have “great benefits“. Like anyone who wants change doesn’t work hard. Some would say you’ve chosen to suck off the corporate tit instead of being the patriotic rugged individual you should be. I would not say that but some would.
I’m not sure how anyone would consider working for someone and adding a lot of value sucking on a tit. I guess that’s someone’s mentality and perspective . I guess that same person would say you are sucking on the Public’s tit If you own your own company, or you are sucking on the taxpayer’s tit if you are in the military. All of that is BS.
My solution was for you to find a job that pays you the benefits that you want if working for yourself doesn’t provide the compensation needed to support your family. That is a choice. Things are just going to get worse over the next three years, not better. Don’t wait for someone else to hand you a better rate on health insurance, that will never happen.
Or work a couple jobs like I do with having my own business as well as a corporate gig. The second job is just for fun now, but it helped support my stay at home wife to raise our kids.
That’s fine. You are whining on the internet about not being able to support your family, I am not. If you cannot afford something there are 2 options. Don’t buy it or increase your income. Pretty simple. Asking someone to charge less for the service is an option, but just because they don’t want to cut their fee is no reason to get upset.your “muh benefits” are subsidized by tax breaks to your employer.
I’ll not engage with you any longer since you are getting more and more insulting with your passive agressive nonsense.
Implying I don’t support my family. What an ass you are being.
Name one single government agency that is run well. Literally every agency is a cornucopia of waste, fraud, abuse and inefficiency. I just can't take anyone serious that thinks handing over ANYTHING to the government is a good idea. I used to think NASA and FAA were probably better there, but I've, uhm lets see what's the word? "Evolved" on that, that's the one.I’ve been looking at some numbers.
Australia spends 1/2 the cost of the US per capita and provides universal coverage.
England’s NHS costs 1/3 per capita of the US for universal coverage.
Canada spends 1/3 per capita of the US for universal coverage.
Currently US citizens spend 4.1 Trillion per year on healthcare premiums, copays and coinsurance. Amongst the highest per capital country in the world. The US pays the highest drug prices in the world.
CBO estimates it would cost the US 2.8-3.2 trillion yearly for universal single payer. A savings to Americans of 900 billion to 1.3 trillion per year. Wowzers!
Cost savings would come from advertising elimination, private health insurance disappearing and procedure/drug cost controls. There is a lot of speculation that health care workers pay would decrease as well.
I believe the USA could do this better than anyone, like we do almost everything better. I’m not sure why we can’t.
I believe that Sweden also has super low corporate taxes.

There isn't a single thing that .gov does that couldn't be done better in the private sector, but some things are constitutionally mandated to be the domain of .gov. I'll never support handing over anything that wasn't in the founding. Be it education, healthcare or whatever. None of those things are what we have a government for, it's just morphed into an abomination over time and It needs to be paired back in a big way.
