Re: There must be a pony in here somewhere.

Warren - it’s mathematically identical to raise taxes then deduct for everyone except those who don’t purchase insurance. Not similar. Identical. Don’t like ACA that’s fine but that’s not some kind of philosophical point about purchase vs government provision. Bull fucking shit it is. You can raise...

Re: There must be a pony in here somewhere.

The bridge for mandatory insurance was crossed with Medicare. Horseshit. Medicare isn't "purchased". It's paid for by working people and is use primarily by non working people. It's an entitlement. Wealth redistribution. And is absolutely at a fundamental level NOT NOT NOT a mandatory purchase.

Maybe this is a US thing, but the credit card companies are adamant that businesses not charge additional fees or higher prices for using a card.

The checking and savings products are not technically bank accounts. They are separate balances held within a Robinhood brokerage account. Your checking and savings funds are not FDIC-insured.

I thought more than 2/3. You guys don’t have co pays right? No co-pays on basic care. The Fraser Institute (a libertarian-ish econ think-tank) has estimated that even a $5 co-pay would eliminate most of the wait lines in emergency rooms and save billions of dollars, but it's a political non-starter...
