Don't need no stinkin' single payer or ACA type of program. We got free enterprise.

Oh ...




Wait ...


Roughly a third of the $5 billion in cash GoFundMe has helped people raise since it started in 2010 has gone toward medical bills and expenses — the most of any category on the crowdfunding site.

What they're saying: "The [health care] system is terrible," GoFundMe CEO Rob Solomon told Kaiser Health News. "We shouldn't be the solution to a complex set of systemic problems."
A third of GoFundMe donations are for health care

Did you hear about the woman who murdered her soldier husband then started a gofundme w/ a $100k goal to help her and her kid thru the tragedy?


Probably not as it was black on black crime. Well, if you are interested

Wow how horrible for it is for people to give up their hard earned over taxed dollars to help others.

Why, Because Obamacare has driven us to this... Guy making 30,000/year has to pay 6500 for a healthcare plan that does not pay a penny toward their healthcare until the 7500 dollar deductible is met.

This is the WONDERFUL plan Nancy gave you, and EXEMPTED herself from.
