HUH? Now you have lost me.
Here let me child proof it for you.
In this thread you have posted twice .... out of the dozens of threads on this very topic, not once has anybody mentioned that Obama care is in fact a government policy regardless of who is in the Presidency.
You all keep calling it Obama care & Blaiming Obama for its exsistance.
& several people have posted how Obamacare is socalist tripe & how it will cost Obama the Election.
Again Obama, Obama, Obama.
Not once have i seen any member yourself included ( SmockinJoe ) point out that Obama is not the architect of Obama-care. He is just the messenger.
As for your post.
SmokinJoe wrote:It's called Obama care because his administration worked on it, amended it, and got it passed. Yes, the concept was nurtured and pursued during the Clinton admin, but the idea has been around even longer than that.
Prior admin's like the Clinton's have reviewed a few countries who have universal healthcare, not just Australia. Germany has the oldest national healthcare. And during Clinton's admin, they looked at Canada's national healthcare system as well.
Switzerland has heavily regulated private insurance in which the regulations keep the private companies from making profits off of the insurance. However, they are allowed to offer supplemental insurance, which they can and do make a profit from.
Australia is simply one of about 31 or 32 developed countries with national healthcare.
Where did you say any of that ???
Allow me to childproof it for you:
I made more than one post on this.
You missed (or conveniently left out) where I posted "I DO NOT BLAME OBAMA." Please re-read my post where I clearly said "I do not blame Obama." Because, those very words are in my previous post. What's hilarious is that, in your post quoting me when I said "huh......" my second paragraph CLEARLY shows where I said "I DON'T BLAME OBAMA."
Now, onto the other statement about me that you misrepresented:
I clearly showed where this national healthcare reform has been sought after long before Obama was a President. I even posted that during the Clinton Admin, they were trying to get this passed by looking at how other countries were doing it.
Hopefully, if you choose to re-read my post, you will understand that I do not blame Obama and that I know that our country has sought out national healthcare through a few administrations.
I'll lay it out below so that there is no misunderstanding:
1) I do not blame Obama (as I've already said in a previous post)
2) This reform has been sought after by previous adminstrations (as I have already stated in a previous post)
3) The ONLY reason it is called "OBAMA Care" is he just happened to be the sitting president when the reform was passed. Like I previously said, he's just one card in the deck.
This reform would've been called "Clinton Care" had it passed when Ole William was sitting in the oval office.
You don't seem to understand that just because I refer to it as ObamaCare, that I recognize this reform has been sought after for quite some time now.
It's funny, but the things you said I haven't said are exactly the things I was saying.
