If you want better health care, Don't Vote for Obama

@Jake one of my friends benefited greatly from Obamacare, so who's right and who's wrong?

First and foremost, I'm glad to hear your friend was able to reap the benefits of the ACA. Unfortunately, my sister is one of "those people" you hear about who legitimately could not afford health insurance before the ACA became law, and now still cannot afford health insurance and is being penalized thusly. Sadly, the Marketplace and even the package offered by her union is more than her budget will allow, even while renting a portion of my house for less than any apartment nearby.
I acknowledge there are plenty of people who found benefit in the ACA, but it would be foolish to assume nobody was effected negatively.
One could conclude that nobody is right or wrong, as there is a little bit of truth on both sides of the coin.

That's American healthcare for yah. It's expensive, but one of the best in the world. :)

Expense means quality.

Don't envy Canada. What's covered varies from province to province. For instance, if they moved anywhere in Ontario, they'd still have to pay for dentistry, unless they had coverage from work. (And even then, there'd probably be a budget-busting deductible.) And for some things there are still a long wait times. It's a little better than ACA, (in some provinces), but we're not that great.

As western Canadian even I have to shake my head at that last comment. My doc doesn't think he's French. He's just a bit of a quack

Sorry, I after seeing the comments about Canada I can't resist quoting comedian musicians Bowser & Blue
- "Healthcare in Canada is like a hospital gown... You only think you're covered."
(You can find their songs on YouTube)

Pretending they are French, eh ?

Let a French guy explayn you how it is.

The French government say the University that have the right to propose Medic courses. And how much students they can have.
They don't really put limits on the first year.
Going in second year hit the government limit. The university take the "better" students".
You can imagine the "war" between students ("that is a war of the past, honest, and cetera"), with destroyed works, books, even rich students making their opponents bullied).

You think the second year the "survivors" work ?

Ah ah, nuts : the French government also and the cursus by a special exam, the "épreuves classantes nationales" ("National Classifying Examinations").
What the problem ?

1° The gov. say how much diplomas it will give.
2° There are always diplomas availables than students.
3° There is no minimal rating. You can have zero, you still have your diploma.
4° Students with the better rating choose the diploma they want (for teeths, for old peoples...), then the following choose what is still available, etc.

More and more peoples can't pay for treatments in France ("state care" is more a legend than a real thing, really), and strangely enough feel better since.

@Ddurand Linda wasn't referring to France, she was referring to French Canadians. ^^. Hope that clears things up.

Downsides of American health care, for sure. Would be nice if it were for free like Canada :)
