Because it's a sign of the end of the times and it means that the reds are finally getting their hold on america. Quick, get your guns and stay true to the good ol' american way.
Sad part is, I'm not exaggerating. Even here, in Europe, some people think socialized anything is a sign that the communists are taking over and turning it into a dictatorship. lulz
Everyone having to pay taxes so that society as a whole can live better, by avoiding that an individual has to spend thousands of dollars into healthcare in case of need, seems like a very good investment to me.Someone had to pay for it.. Free stuff is only awesome for the one getting it. Isn't it obvious that those who had to paid for it complain and don't want it..
I would love socialized health care. Love it.
What we are getting crammed down our throats in America is not socialized health care. We are being forced to buy insurance. There is a huge difference.
Our corporate and banking overlords hate socialism because it takes power and money away from them. Plain and simple.
There are potential benefits and detriments to socialized healthcare. If you ignore either then that limits your ability to discuss the issue.
Socialized medicine would make sure everyone would have some quality of healthcare at some point. However if you want a quick surgery by your choice of physician then the best system is non socialized. Our current system costs a lot of money, way too much, but our level of care is fairly good compared to other countries.
Lack of information, I think, is the problem, or that some people aren't willing to accept certain information that goes against what they already believe (See: Belief Bias)
Perfect example of why "community" forums are poisonous to the health of a development team. These developers are wasting hundreds of hours trying to stem the tide of incessant bitchery that would never, ever abate so long as these entitled, unfortunate human beings don't get their way.
