Do you have a medical diagnosis of any illness or problem? Heart disease? Diabetes?

If Trump is elected say goodbye to your health insurance, when he does away with ACA the first thing that will happen is all people with pre existing conditions will be without health insurance unless they have a real good job where they have insurance, and THEN if you leave that job, well dont, not ever.

Because you will NEVER get it again.

31. Hillary plans to globalize health care which will lead to all the good things in ACA being rolled ba

rolled back? WTF?

Yes, in 1994 we signed on to the WTO GATS which committed our health insurance industry to GATS disciplines. And in 1998 an annex to the GATS that contained a standstill clause was added to it. What that means is that the minute it becomes world trade the WTO has the final say on anything and everything related to anything covered by GATS which is basically everything of economic importance that might effect profitability. The WTO views regulation as bad and pushes for deregulation of everything. Which would mean the rolling back of restrictions on what insurance companies have to do, allowing them to dump sicker people, since they are less profitable. Also, limits on their profitability would likely be rolled back. Also, once it becomes world trade, single payer becomes forever impossible, unless we pay a compensation in free money that would literally be a kings ransom, in lost expected future profits, we become locked in to the private for profit system forever, barring some huge multi trillion dollar bailout for foreign firms effected. (as currently no foreign firms are involved yet we need to withdraw from this deal or insert broad carve outs preventing this now!)

The paper in my .sig explains the rest. Its not a good situation. So we need to vote for Bernie because Hillary is already committed to this globalization agenda because of her husband's signature and US trade policy of pushing it, over the last 20 years of negotiations.Those negotiations are over economic integration, basically allowing developing countries to participate in our service markets as if they were American companies but without the higher costs.

Health insurance and medical care are both services, even if delivered across international borders, insurance is committed unambiguously as a service, so is nursing, medicine, teaching, IT, construction, staffing, etc.

the new TiSA agreement is almost finished in Geneva after 10 years of negotiations.

But things are not at all what they seem on health care. We're being fed a bill of goods to keep us from speaking up on this all important issue which is literally going to make or break American families - to the tune of several hundred thousand dollars a person over our lives. At least $500k- thats probably low. (the total distribution of healthcare cost in today's money (adjusted for inflation) over a single person's entire lifetime)

My medication would cost over $400 a month without the ACA and my doctor's visits would be even more. I was able to be diagnosed because of a four day stay in Cedars-Sinai for monitoring and I would not have been able to afford that without ACA. My medical debt from before I had insurance is over $4000 from general practitioner visits.

As it is too many people still have insufficient coverage at excessively high prices, or fall through the cracks completely because of the loopholes.

32. Some beg to differ

 

http://vetsforbernie.org/honors/

Sen. Bernie Sanders has been honored by some of America’s oldest and largest veterans organizations for his tireless advocacy on behalf of Veterans and military families.

VFW Congressional Award 2015

American Legion Patriot Award 2014

MOAA Col. Arthur T. Marix Congressional Leadership Award 2014

DAV Congressional Leadership Award 2012

VFW Congressional Award

After 8 years on the Senate Veterans Affairs Committee, 2 of them as chairman, it is no understatement to say that Sen. Sanders has truly taken care of wounded, ill and injured veterans and their surviving family members. He has been a commanding voice against changing the COLA calculations for disabled veterans, for the proper care and treatment of women veterans, for homeless veterans, for better employment opportunities and improved access to mental health programs, plus increased Congressional oversight of the VA claims processing transformation. When the VA imploded last year, he was the lead negotiator for the Veterans Access, CHOICE and Accountability Act, which the President signed into law last summer.

The VA still has an uphill climb to fix what’s broken, to hold employees appropriately accountable, and to restore the faith of veterans in their VA. But veterans everywhere should be proud and comforted to know that this member of Congress has their back. The VFW Congressional Award has been presented annually since 1964 to one sitting member of the House or Senate for significant legislative contributions on behalf of those who have worn the uniform. This award is extremely important to us, because it recognizes that our military, our veterans, and our families, past and present, have a champion in our corner on Capitol Hill.

77. It annoys me

 

that you are so arrogant that you can pass judgment on the whole message board you haven't even been a member of for a month yet.

So yeah, I'm sure you got a shitload of indignant people asking who exactly you thought you are. Count me as another one.

Had you been here longer than a couple of weeks, you wouldn't even have to ask, that's the rub. Most of us have already stated such information, but you seem to think it's a hip and trendy question around here.

It's like strolling onto an environmental forum and demanding to know who recycles their glass products while firmly asserting that anyone who won't answer you must not live green enough. It's a pretty good guess that they aren't recreationally clubbing seals regardless of how arrogantly and self-importantly you imply it, being as they are there in the first place, most many more years than your couple of days self has been.

So, yeah. Don't you have some other place in which to lord your self-righteousness? We're pretty laid back here at DU.

87. Dozens or hundreds here do nothing but attack Hillary and say they wont vote for her.

And for every poster here who admits they wont vote for her in Nov, ten defend them.

The rub is I only want to talk to liberals.

99. Maybe if you learn to actually talk

 

*to* people instead of *at* them, you might just have a decent conversation with the multitude of liberals on this board.

Like I said, strutting into a message board and casting aspersions at people who have been members and have solid friendships here is NOT the path to productive, meaningful conversation.

If you have that many problems with that many people on DU, maybe the problem isn't the people on DU - maybe the problem lies with you.

Settle the fuck down. DU hasn't ever needed this brand of hyperbole, and I'm sorry that you got the impression that we did.

Damn.

So there is a bed you made. Or you are realizing you do need the pesky voters you keep insulting and now you are employing FEAR. Give people are reason to vote FOR, not against, it is more effective.

59. Insults are even better

 



So it is not in the bag and you have no idea how to get people to vote for a candidate.

All you got is this

fear
ˈfir/
noun
1.
an unpleasant emotion caused by the belief that someone or something is dangerous, likely to cause pain, or a threat.
"drivers are threatening to quit their jobs in fear after a cabby's murder"
synonyms: terror, fright, fearfulness, horror, alarm, panic, agitation, trepidation, dread, consternation, dismay, distress; More
verb
1.
be afraid of (someone or something) as likely to be dangerous, painful, or threatening.
"he said he didn't care about life so why should he fear death?"


Pro tip, that depresses the vote

Are you going to be here all week? This is really good comedy on your part.

<------Immigrant, woman, Latina, Jewish, Oh and kid I cover city hall regularly.

You really are doing some great comedy here, I also cover social justice and poverty issues, and speak wth all those groups regularly.

Mom can I keep it? really... And now I need to probably finish that candidate questionnaire instead of having a good laugh at YOUR EXPENSE. We actually have a race for city attorney this year.

In fact, just about to write yet another story on TRUMP. You hit zero nerves, but if Trump is elected I will blame YOUR PARTY and partisans like YOU, for selecting the weakest candidate in decades to run against this clown.

You sir are hysterically funny,. Please keep the comedy going. You assumed all those things and then got some egg on your face. You SIR are a keyboard commando, So what is the going rate from David Brock and Correct the Record?

You are attempting a guilt trip, the kind of guilt trip that ACTUALLY FUCKING TURNS PEOPLE OFF AND DEPRESSES THE FUCKING VOTE YOU NEED with the weakest candidate since at least Mondale. You are using fear not positive messaging.

So keep it up. You will do well in depressing the vote. And yes I will continue to laugh AT YOU.

And you are still telling to vote against, not for. That is a classic low turnout messaging. Look it up. This is very basic, like first semester political science.

Pity the snotty one, he does not know better. I guess they are starting to realize this, ooopsie, we might need those votes after all.

I hate to say it but I actually am worse off now because before I used to get my medicine for free from the pharmaceutical company that makes it and now I dont get that anymore because I have insurance. And the premiums are too expensive for me. I have a very low income but not low enough to qualify for medicare in my state so I often lapse on insurance payments and then have no insurance till I pay again. Its the worst of both worlds.
