    That's really not a hard question to answer JH.

    Instead of coming up with a truly global solution like figuring out how those 13% can become employed in meaningful full-time jobs which are accompanied by employer-subsidized insurance coverage, these liberals would rather preserve the dependent status of those poor victims, and heap the insurance burden on the rest of us.

    Shame on the conservative that says an individual should have to work for a living . . .

    We did try! If you look at the graph, the ACA took it from 18% and climbing down to between 10% and 11%. But that wasn't enough.

    Also you keep bringing up China, Venezuela, Cuba. I can't defend the situations in China and Venezuela, but I'm gonna go out on a limb for Cuba. They still have world class healthcare.

    They were recently the first country to eliminate mother to child HIV transmission, and they're on their way to eliminating it completely.

    They also have one of the highest levels of participation in doctor's without borders, to the point where they are often thought to be a global superpower by people in developing nations (due to cuban doctor prevalence).

    The U.S. still refuses to pay international court ordered reparations to them for how badly we've damaged their economy and hindered their growth.

    Do you know why we went after Cuba and staged coups throughout South America to destabilize them? 2 reasons, experiments in socialism are dangerous to capitalism, and so we could subjugate them and exploit their resources for pennies on the dollar. We ultimately failed with Cuba because they wouldn't relent, instead opting to be isolationist and do the best they could.

    You and I must have the same right knee. I broke my knee when I was 25 and again about 12 years later. I had 50% scar cartilage until last November when what little I had left after all these years finally became bone-on-bone. My left knee is still perfect and I'd love to have two of those. I get knee injects every six months in my right knee. One injection once a week for three weeks. It's a lubricant called Euflexxa which was derived from rooster combs originally, at least the molecule was, and it cushions the knee the way the cartilage used to. Cortisone doesn't do a damn thing except fool you into thinking that your knee is better by reducing the swelling temporarily. If you want real relief, ask for Euflexxa next time. I swear by it. I'm too young for a knee replacement but I know it is down the road. Good luck.

    Don't forget that many red states rejected the Medicaid expansion which would have covered significantly more people.
