    It is deducted from everyones checks, the problem is too many of us get that money back at tax time. I dont see many using that refund to buy healthcare services, they want both. I mean its really going to be an ideological difference to have or not have these programs, but no one should ride for free

    @PuroChorizo361 Agreed. And the MediCare allotments don't come back to us anyways. I never get that money back, just the stuff the Fed steals from me and wastes on war.

    @PuroChorizo361 guys you are missing the point or not reading what I said. I dint say you personally get it back at tax time. I made the argument that MANY of us get more back at tax time than they paid in total. A few years ago I came out ahead due to tax credits for kids and whatnot. They are not kidding when they say almost 50% of americans do not pay taxes. many of their deductions result in a net gain for the year. but they still feel entitled. Gov provided everything will never work correctly

    Sure. What are they afraid of? Giving The People a choice? They made sure that would never happen again a long time ago...

    Good on the desire for medicare for all. We have the worst and most ineffectual system for health care in the world.

    As for exposure to 3rd party candidates? Absolutely, but its a moot point. What should happen is the system that allows "parties" should be destroyed all together. No one party has exclusive hold on good ideas and we can see that having parties just categorizes political wants/needs/desires, So removing the party affiliation system all together is what we need. Stop letting the government pidgeon hole, and force candidates to be representative to ideas, instead of rhetoric.

    Hooray for seeing some coverage on a third party canidate. See may be uber-left, but I would vote for anyways just to try and send a message to the dems and republicans that we are fed up with their BS. They have a stranglehold on this nation and each year their candidates get weaker and more corrupt than the last. Yet they and the media make sure that when it comes election time, it will always come down to one or the other. It's about time they got a wake up call. Seriously, how much worse a job could she do at this point.

    I can tell you one thing, if it was between her and Obama, I'd even become an Obama sycophant!!! We should, however hear more from all other candidates. If the media was truly unbiased they could all get together and have prime-time space given to them, that all could be heard.

    You are right about that. If it was between those two the republicans would all be rallying around Obama claiming its just a step in the better direction, and "we'll get em next time". kind of like they are with Romney, and bush, etc. but it never turns out like they say

    @JonahGalt. Yes, an incredible Jewish Russian, a brilliant woman. a very impressive person in my life. Well, maybe that's why some of us are getting smarter too; WE'VE LIVED THE PAST FOUR YEARS IN A SOCIALIST REVOLUTION.

    She is wonderful, but will not be at the debates, will not be seen on many ballets, and will not run endless comercials... Gary Johnson and Ron Paul feel her pain.

    Sure, the independent candidates should be able to participate in the debates.
    Those of us on Medicare have to pay for that coverage even after we're retired and in addition we have co-pays that if covered under a supplemental policy can cost $3500 per year per retiree. And drug coverage still has co-pays and the dreaded donut whole. Extending Medicare to those under 65 would still require those covered to pay for the insurance.

    There is no reason why she shouldnt be heard..I actually like some of the points she talks about .. Give America more choices instead of just dumb and dumber..on another note she looks nuttier than crunchy peanut butter..haha

    The insurance you get through work is tax deductible so the government is already paying for your insurance so why not cut out the middle man who many times collects the check and denies service when something major comes along. C'mon America lets join the rest of the developed world and make sure everyone has access to medical care regardless of income.
