  1. As a family member of two who have CF….It's not something that is unlucky or by chance. You carry the gene and so does your partner at which point it's nearly a 50/50 chance you have a child with CF. After the first you know this and the choice to have 4 is completely up to you. I'm someone who believes in single payer healthcare and against the current system of healthcare but to further that message we need to be informed and not spread stories like this that others can prop up against us. We need to be truthful about stories like this and still fight.

  2. TRUST me socialized HC is not what it seems to be.. You want free care – great I agree.. But we are not Sweden with a low population.. We have 330 million people so care has to be diminished to take care of everyone.. In socialized HC cost over patient is key.. In what we have now you still get treated regardless.. Yes you will have to pay but you got your health.. In Socialized you would still be waiting in line and it wont be what you expect.. I say this because we are not the UK/ CANADA or EU nations we are to big for it to work..

  3. Imagine if you were this mother, parent, or even yourself. Do the right thing, Americans! Let's stop these blood sucking insurance companies from having so much power over whether you live or die. Medicare for all! Bernie 2020.

  4. Don't give Trump another term. He will end all hope of healthcare for the πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ at a reasonable rate. No more years !

  5. The major reason I don't return to the psychiatric community the harm and loss they delivered to me is because Jesus would disapprove.

  6. God is giving you a send chance to vote Bernie America. The only honest and consistent politician who can fix this for once and for all. #bernie2020

  7. Stop giving away your tax money to illegal Aliens and use it to pay for a better healthcare system. Illegal aliens don't have to pay the medical bill. No social security number, no credit. I see it all the time. I am a Mexican so don't bother with your humanitarian excuses. My family came here to work and we pay our taxes fare and square even when we did not have documents. We never abused the system like others do. If you keep the none sense this country would be like or worst than those countries we fled from.

  8. the biggest problem with health care today is everyone wants a million dollar house and six 100 thousand dollar vehicles.
    and someone has to pay for this, guess who.
    today health care is all about money. kinda like a drug cartel.
    #1 drugs, illegal or legal, reproductive harm. that's your kids. understand scientist are nothing but government employees.

  9. Im curious about something. So a late friend of mine spent a combined total of 16 months in a hospital between 2015 and 2016. She passed away in 2017 unfortunately. Does anyone know if hospitals have right to sue over debts if the patient is no longer living?

  10. It's an outrage of monumental gravity
    if a nation is judged by its healthcare system
    we get an f-
    making its citizens feel guilty for getting sick
    and then slapping them with a bill that is
    beyond repayable
    unless you are a movie star or sell your body organs
    if they still work

  11. Its no wonder Americans are "SO ANGRY", with the health care situation in this country. Immigrants, cross the border, come to the ER, have their medical problems dealt with, no problem. Who pays for this medical care? Guess Who? Hard working AMERICAN CITIZENS!! People are FED UP!!

  12. While #WonderfullyHungry, I am reminded of the need to #MakeAmericaSuperHealthy (#MASH) in order to end our ongoing and ever-worsening U.S. health care crisis.

  13. I went to the ER for the very first time towards the end of 2019, for two days, a shot to stop my heart for it to reset again due to An aggressive palpitation and dehydration. my bill was close to $3000 out of pocket, my insurance covered $15000, but I did received the cares I needed, and did not walked out with just a medical exam, a bag of ice, and aspirins as has happened to other people, but still having to pay a high co payment.
    It is sick really for people to get pay millions in bonuses and payments, but at the cost of suing the poor, this is just sad.

  14. Here's the book: https://www.amazon.com/Price-We-Pay-American-Care/dp/1635574110/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=the+price+we+pay&qid=1557713767&s=books&sr=1-1

  15. Obamacare made a bad situation worse. They never fixed the problem they just repackaged it. Premiums, copays and deductibles skyrocket while overage and service decline.
