My Thoughts on Healthcare in USA
I just won the Healthcare lottery, the USA just passed a HealthCare bill. I have not had Health Insurance from about age 25 until age 54. I could have afforded it; I just did not feel it worth the money. Effectively, I was saying to myself,
"I would rather die than pay 250-350 U.S. Dollars per month."
For 30 years, I have won the Health Care Lottery, I get to keep the 90,000 Dollars I saved and you paid. I can now get the rich to pay my health bills, whoopee.
President Obama tells me, this is now paid for, because I am lucky sperm from the USA.
Thank you President Obama.
Warning, read on at the risk of boring yourself to death.

Do I have universal healthcare now because of the vote yesterday in the USA?
Has President Obama pushed through HealthCare?
Yes, because President Obama told me so.
Yes, with a lot of small print, exceptions and good intentions, and zero clarity.
What can I effectively do now?
I can demand the Doctors take care of me. I now have the moral high ground, I will be able to walk into a Doctors office, a Hospital and demand they take care of me, and this is valuable.
What is the value of the USA government to me?
In my opinion, the value of being a USA citizen is that my government protects me. If I do something incredibly stupid like walk across the border into North Korea, I can get President Clinton to come to North Korea and say,
"Andy was confused; he did not know he crossed the border."
"The USA will lie on my behalf."
For some unknown reason to me, about 20 percent of the planets, normally called the developed nations earn huge amounts of money. The people of the USA, Europe, Japan, Australia and New Zealand make normally about 8-100 times more money than the rest of the planet.
Cost of Health Care outside USA
The cost of HealthCare in the underdeveloped or normal world is priced correctly. Therefore for about 99 percent of my medical problems, and because I am earn about 20 times more than any of the locals in poorer countries, I can afford to pay Doctors and Hospitals outside the USA with cash out of my pocket.
What I do need?
1. Cancer Treatment
2. Organ Transplants
I suppose I could get in a car accident, and have incredibly bad injuries, that would require years of bone repair work.
I need the USA Healthcare system to pay for anything over 10,000 Dollars per year, this is what I need, but I want them to pay all of the expenses, because I am a USA citizen --- I can jump on a plane here in Guatemala, knowing they will die, while I would live of the same major medical problems.
I earn USA dollars and spend them in cheap countries; I have the buying power of a USA citizen who earns about 150-200,000 dollars. I can afford many health problems because I live outside the USA and earn money from the USA. Now, if I had a big medical problem, because President Obama promised me I have Health Insurance, I would board a plane, fly home, and demand the Doctors and Hospitals take care of me.
I know it not that simple, but that is what he is telling me, providing I pretend I am stupid, therefore, because I am now stupid, I will demand it, and get it. I love the USA!
This is a good use of socialism, and the USA and the world is slowly become 50 percent socialistic and 50 percent free market, this I will be the best of both Democracy and Socialisms combined.
I heard, 65 percent of bankruptcy filing are because of health bills in the USA, I am hoping there is a 65 percent reduction in bankruptcies.
Note: I heard words coming out of Politicians, calling people ignorant, disloyal, non-American and communist. It is beyond my comprehension that an elected politician would be so low to stand at a podium and behave so low classed in front of his or her constituents. I think this stuff is for Twitter and Facebook where soap opera mentality thrives.
I believe it is my responsibility as a smarter, richer person, to take care of people. I feel it my personal responsibility to pay for workers health problem, and then force them to work to pay whereby they take the paycheck I give them and pay taxes.
I am the King, therefore I must take care of the people below me, this is my responsibility I have accepted as King.
