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."

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.

Evidence? Also, healthcare spending was the lowest it ever was in the Obama years. Just saying.

Now now 47Grapes. that is not true, it is the lowest if you do not count the government subsidies being spent.

Also since Obamacare has become law, the life expectancy in the use had declined multiple years in a row for the FIRST TIME on record.

You get what you pay for. You wanted Obamacare.. Obama care says NO HEALTCARE FOR YOU..

working people cannot afford to spend 6500 on healthcare insurance that does not cover their healthcare cost until they spend and ADDITIONAL 7500 DOLLARS.

Your right, That is why 1000s and 1000s OF Canadians have to flee to the US to keep from dying from O'Canada..

What is a Go Fund me.. it is people tht care about other people so much they are willing to take their money and give it FREELY to help their neighbors.

Actually it wasn’t Obamacare that gave us this, it was the GOP dismantling parts of Obamacare that gave us this.

I have found that most people complaining about Obamacare have absolutely no clue how it was supposed to work.

So TN, in a sentence or two, explain how Obamacare was supposed to work.

Actually, the life span has declined for people in America because of the opioid crisis, not obamacare. I do admit that it did not lower healthcare costs but it did give over 20 million people good health insurance in government funded healthcare to the people. That is a good thing.
