Sure, but why don't you make an argument for it anyway with your naive 2 years of poli sci education that allows you to be an expert on all the worlds problems.

That's a condescending post from someone who's trying to argue that lack of healthcare doesn't impact our health.

Please quote where I said it doesn't impact our health? Since you can't because I never said it I'll explain again:

That's fine. I agree with you, I hate big pharma as well, but that greed is still not the primary factor in the overall health of the US pop that you are making it out to be (or at least I haven't been shown any convincing evidence of this).

Thank you for thoroughly reading my position before commenting.

You're right it's people choosing to get sick

I already covered this when I explained in areas where healthcare doesn't even exist healthier populations exist, and you argued that they get free healthcare (which wouldn't even qualify as healthcare in any 1st world country btw). I then went on to say:

I also made a point which explained how taking some personal responsibility for your health, ie not smoking, reducing meat consumption, alcohol abuse, etc.. will help reduce all the largest problems we rely on healthcare for (and what it profits from) WHILE ALSO being more financial feasible. So yeah...

The selective reading skills some of you have is really quite impressive.

You know what our ****ty healthcare system should largely be blamed for? Needless deaths, lack of treatment for the poor, overuse of treatments which increase immunity in viruses/bacteria, prescription drug abuse, etc.. NOT the general health of the population.

Read this:

You're grasping at straws trying to argue a bunch of bull****. However you worded it you were saying that healthcare is more or less irrelevant to health. I don't need to see stats on some Amazonian tribe to get it.

Tell me that when you get strep throat and can't afford to go to the clinic.

DwnWthVwls 05-14-2017 10:17 PM

Okay, right after you tell me what strep throat has to do with population health.

US healthcare should NOT be privatized institutions. It should be socialized and controlled to keep prices equal and fair. Should a doctor who specializes in toes and ankles make $250K a year? (I ask because I know a podiatrist from over on The Gear Page who owns a million dollar home in the Washington DC area, and about 30 or so $3,000+ guitars.)

In-****ing-insane in a country where kids go to bed hungry every night.

DwnWthVwls 05-14-2017 10:36 PM

I hate when you make these anecdotal arguments.. Should you live the way you do when children in Africa live the way they do? You should of stopped or added more related to your first 2 sentences.

and tbh, i'm fine with them making that much the real absurdity is the multi-million dollar sports contracts.
