If you study history, you'll see that when a government tries to help all of its people (like globalized healthcare, social security, welfare and disability), it typically becomes too powerful and controlling, quickly becomes abused, or it fails. Democrats want to help everyone but with a bit of studying you can find that that idea doesn't work out well. These intentions are good but the role of a government is to govern, not to coddle everyone.
People who are poor and poorly educated still want what is promised by the Democrats. They don't see that things could be different and better if the government merely regulated and didn't step into things as much.
Because life is a struggle. People will always be getting sick, unusual circumstances will always be popping up, disasters are always going to be happening. Capitalism is all about survival of the fittest, with everyone fending for themselves. Those that fall, they're left on their own. Socialism is all about team work, and ensuring that if someone falls, they'll be taken care of until they get back on their feet. Of course, lots of people can still abuse it if they're lazy, and it's a very dangerous game getting people to not be completely dependent on the system. But, it's worth it. Societies must rely on educating people to be decent, moral people for it to work.
Sometimes decent moral people are permanently injured or unable to work. Sometimes decent moral people simply can't find jobs because none are available.
Hell,sometimes decent moral people are sick, or their children or sick, and because of America's totally fucked up and ridiculously inhumane medical system by the time they're better, or their children are better, they have medical debts so large they have to declare bankruptcy. More than HALF of all bankruptcies in America are because of medical bills. That is a LOT of people falling through the cracks, and they can be decent, moral, hard working people WITH jobs too.
why do you think healthcare is so expensive....our government spends trillions on it which creates inflation and now it is unaffordable. Same with college tuition, greedy college admins see the government spending more and they say gimme some of that...they hike tuition to obscene levels and get their new football stadium paid for!!!!!!
Healthcare is so expensive because people HAVE to pay for it, and because Government doesn't control it! When people have to PAY to LIVE, the people providing those services can charge as much as they want, especially when it's unregulated, and get away with it. People have to pick the PAY option because there's no other alternative. If they don't, they might die, or their children might die. And because of this, millions of America are slaves to their health, and countless thousands go bankrupt simply because they wanted to live.
That's exactly what we've been seeing all these years, and exactly why universal healthcare is needed. It's to prevent this inhumane abuse by private institutes with too much power, and too much greed, and not enough respect and basic decency for fellow humanity.
Universal healthcare is about making sure that medicine is for helping people get better, and not for making a profit.
The same goes for the other things that you wrote. Greedy Admins hiking tuition simply because they can, because people need to get educated if they want to do well. Through their greedy actions hard working, decent people have to put themselves into absurd amounts of debt just to get the education they need to get a job that pays well. It's predatory greed at its worst.
And again, that's why government needs to be spending more on instituting things at a national social level. Because these things shouldn't be about turning profits and operated on greed. It's why America has fallen as low as it has, because so many things that people DESERVE have instead become things they need to pay ridiculous amounts of money for. This is all because of the extreme end of capitalism, and capitalism at its worst, when Government doesn't have enough power, or regulations in place to keep them in check.
healthcare costs increase because the government pays so much of it and providers know they can milk the government for all its worth and nobody gives a damn cause Obama will only borrow a few trillion more from China. Then the bill comes due and we have massive rioting and 30percent unemployment like Greece, Spain, Portugal, Italy, etc
The government isn't supposed to fix people and their situations but to govern. To: Conduct the policy, actions, and affairs of (a state, organization, or people). Control, influence, or regulate (a person, action, or course of events).
Not fix everything that seems hard or unfortunate.
There's definitely a right way and wrong way to run a welfare state. The Mediterranean way will leave you bust, but the North Sea way will leave you robust. Unfortunately the US seems to favour the Mediterranean model by escalating discretionary spending without finding new sources of revenue rather than the disciplined Nordic-and-neighbours model.
I don't know how you can really say this as fact, seeing as pretty much the entire developed world makes use of social welfare programs run by their government. I mean what non-'coddling' country can you compare us with?
You got your propaganda backwards, m8. The Red States are the biggest welfare leeches and the blue states are the hardest workers. Republican states suckling on the socialist teat? NOW WE KNOW WHY THEY CALL 'EM RED STATES!
