“The people believe in what im doing they say Mr.Trump keep the shutdown going” What a joke the president is. A real shame that people are suffering

Fake news. She should take out a pay day loan if she cant pay for her insurance. She can pay it back when her job starts again

jr. ~~~no, no, no. Just no. Pay day loans are incredibly destructive; legal loan sharking. People who have their backs against the wall, find themselves unable to repay loans with interest rates jacked up on steroids, succumb to sequentially taking out more loans to make their payments. My experience: a sister was victimized in Texas; my son in CA.

The American medical system and the insurance available is insane. These private insurance companies really do have death panels that decide if they are willing to pay for your treatments or not. I was diagnosed with an aggressive form of lymphoma, in stage four. Not one time did any doctor have to check to see if my insurance was going to pay for chemo or anything else. At the end of all the treatments, I did not have a penny of debt. But, I live in a much more rational saner country. I did not have to deal with a financial disaster that makes recovery that much more difficult. Lucky me, I do not live in America.

I only like to visit my friends in the US once in a while. After following the situation for the last 2 years I wouldn't move to the US even if they would pay me to do so.

This would never happen in Australia. NO matter your income Everyone is protected and fully covered by Medicare. America needs universal healthcare like the rest of the developed world. We live stress free when it comes to being covered. We are taxed one lump sum yrly which covers yourself and family and also those who cannot afford it. (If you were earning $50,000/year, then $1,000 of your taxable income would go towards financing Medicare). That's it! One lump sum. You still have the option for personal health insurance for other medical needs like private hospital care etc. BUT!! How can you watch this and still believe America is the land of the free??....Its a lie. Its the land only for the rich. The fact she was refused Chemo is disgusting and shocking to me. Shameful.

+discorperted Our Medicare (healthcare for all) started in Australia way back in 1975 long before our current immigration policies. The " strict immigration rules " we now have came with the current Government and only 4 years ago. They (liberals) will be pushed out in next years election because of it. Please don't comment on things you have no knowledge of.

I live in still developing country and with our current president, in the last (almost) 5 years we can get free health care. The low incomes no need to pay anything, the rest only pay around USD 5/month for it. My dad is a veteran, he get it automatically and we don’t have to pay for it. If you work, it’s the company’s obligation to pay for it. I work for private company, health insurance is one of the benefits for their employees so i get double protection, the government medicare and private insurance. The medicare system has not perfect yet but already saved lot of people. Remember years a go, my uncle had to sell his house when her daughter spent months in hospital for head injury after she got hit by a car. My other cousin and now my sister diagnosed with cancer and they get free treatment for the sickness. Something that we thought impossible before. We’re not a small country, it’s one of the most populated country in the world. Cost a huge fund for this but the government is there to serve its people.

And Australia has extremely strict rules on immigration...Perhaps thats why your country has the money to pay for such things
Macnutz420 2 oy oldin
Yes, that is how things should be. I live in Canada and we too have universal coverage. Medical bills are the number one cause of personal bankruptcies in the USA. How crazy is that?

there is going to be widespread suffering from this +firespinnr, in the end mcconnel and trump and the republicans who refuse to do their jobs will be to blame deaths will likely occur as a result of this shutdown. But clearly Trump dosent care who he has to hurt to get what he wants.

rom you really should pay more attention. Trump wanted the shut down and he is blocking any possible return unless he gets exactly what he wants. Border security is not his issue. If it were he would recognize what all the experts, both military and engineers are telling him. The wall will not make a difference, there are other things that will work better. They too are expensive but not as pricey as the wall and much more effective. You stupid president wants this shutdown. This is his political game. But you don't pay much attention, just believe what a famously compulsive liar tells you. Trump has repeated that he is proud of his shut down and you are just lying, trying to pretend something else is happening. You are just pissed that the dems are not giving into his bully blackmail tactics. Ha.
