    PPACA will destroy the health care system in America, which it is actually covertly designed to. Hence the thousand's of pages, the constant changes- to keep everyone guessing. The real intent of PPACA is to then establish, once and for all, a single payer system for everyone, after it has decimated the health insurance industry and eliminated the fee for service model, and the population then rises up like nothing we've seen since 1968. We're already very close to that anyway, since over half the country HAS a single payer- the feds. We have Medicare, Medicaid, Tricare, Champus, VA, federal employees, and of course Congress- who passed, but don't want to have to buy into PPACA. It'll be taken care of fully within 5 years, then all these people complaining of 'other people's right to health care', will say? Wow. How civilized, and effective, and great this Medicare For All system is. WHY didn't someone think of this earlier? Then maybe we can close a few thousand military bases, to pay for it, so we'll have FREE as well as single payer health care? Like the civilized world?Tewdles for Prime Minister of Medicare For All!

    I hope this is sarcasm. Otherwise it's pretty scary.

    I get the impression many Americans want the US to become like Europe, take a look at their economy and how well that's all working out.

    It's a fact. And WOW- how is THIS economy here working for you? You can't be one of the 1000's in AN looking for ways to find a job, eh?

    Not only 'out for myself', but are we actually hearing nurses in this forum advocate that not everyone is entitled to health care, which provides our very occupations? Like tewdles said in another post: Wow.BTW tewdles- you remind me of Elizabeth Warren, Rock Star A#1. Super smart, unflinching and unyielding, and beautifully spoken.
    Twedles apparently no longer posts here on AN...

    We don't want to be like anybody but Americans.
    We just want better access to our health care, at reasonable cost, and with better outcomes.
