  1. I am 55 and have Tricare at 60 along with a military pension, at 65 they combine Tricare with Medicare. They only charge $12.50 a month for Tricare at 60 add another $12.50 for my wife. Total cost $25.00 dollars. It is part what I earned for 22 years of military service. There are US citizens who be grudge my benefits. I say to them you go serve 22 years during two wars.

  2. This is so disturbing. People can't afford medical care, housing, nor food. The game is clearly rigged. & at this point what is the end game?

  3. I know there’s more important things to focus on but why to they say “social” like that. Seems like they’re trying to take the human element out of it but trying to make it sound like something else

  4. For profit healthcare is anti Christian. For profit healthcare is a system that profits from the misfortune and misery of the sick and injured. Jesus Christ kicked money lenders out of the marketplace for profiting on lending money. For profit healthcare is magnitudes more sinful. How can the USA call itself Christian? This is beyond hypocrisy, it's into blasphemy territory.

  5. Impossible!!!! Obama gave us an affordable health bill. He even had the heads of health insurance companies write it.

  6. There are so many assets against inflation and I believe that the secret to financial stability is having the right investment ideas to enable you earn more money and a little or no loss.

  7. Sounds like russian propaganda and disinformation. Any patriotic american is happy to pay $20 a gallon for gas and work themselves to the grave for war and oil industry profits, and understands their lack of healthcare is because of their own laziness and moral failings.

  8. Investing in crypto now should be in every wise individuals list, in some months time you'll be ecstatic with the decision you made today.

  9. The hard right wing koch's own study showed it was $2T to have Medicare for all than it was to have the current system. Our corrupt system of legalized bribery (i.e. campaign contributions) keeps us from making the necessary moral and financial decisions.

  10. I am pushing 60, and I have really good health insurance, yet the quality of doctors is alarmingly low. I battle nausea almost every day for more than 9 months. I had a 7.5 mm kidney stone, it was missed, and it was found and destroyed. I am still suffering with quisey sick stomach . I have to work as a waitress for 10 more years, I wish I were dead

  11. Iam retiring in the Philippines in July, the American dollar goes a lot further in other countries. I can't afford to live in the USA and enjoy my golden years

  12. The medical care cost in the United States in double compared to other countries. Why? The majority of the cost is from doctor and hospital fees. It's a lot cheaper to travel to Mexico to get medical care.
