I think I've mentioned before on other threads that I don't particularly believe in pregnant birds even though I accept the existence of God. Now, this may not have nothing to see with the topic of health care, but I beg to differ. I may believe in God as a dogma, but that's pretty much where my dogmaticism ends. After that, I put every single statement under the microscope and disect it until it's bare to the bones with whatever science I can put my hands on. I am not particularly interested in what people believe in terms of medicare, but more so on the reasons why behind their opinions. I'd be forward and say that I'm skeptical of anecdotal stories... Those are like biblical parables in my humble opinion, but who am I to tell people what they can say or not.
Anyway, here I've collected a few statements for discussion and hope it can provide some basis for comments.
True or false: The cost of medicare will never go down.
True or false: No government can afford a true universal health care.
True or false: Sooner or later, medicare will require user fees or private clinics.
True or false: The largest expenditure in medicare is doctor fees.
True or false: It's okay to put more money in the system, but only if it's to reform it and make it run better.
True or false: Private health-care insurance is unavoidable.
True or false: Health care access is a human right.
There may be other statements like this, so please feel free to add and discuss at will.
