Anything that is called social, the repubs scream (among others) that  that would turn America socialist, instead of course capitalist. They have fought this for years. They had even attacked Social Security as being socialist way back when. Probably why they keep trying to undermine it or down right destroy it. They're getting there and that includes Medicare.
"Where law ends tyranny begins"  John Locke
Locke defines tyranny as "the exercise of power beyond right." A just leader is bound by the laws of the legislative and works for the people, whereas a tyrant breaks the laws and acts on his own behalf

I'm an Expat in SE Asia (Thailand).  All the countries in this region have Universal Health Care.  
My cost is $1/visit - and our doctor's are excellent.  Unlike American doctors, my doc's actually care.  A few years ago I had a brain seizure that required surgery.  From discovery to discharge I made six visits to the boneyard.  

I asked my doc why his English is so good. He replied, "I grew up in Wisconson, where my father was a Professor of Brain surgery.  When I asked why he practiced in Thailand, he replied "To take care of my people." 
Total cost - $6 for six visits. 
Same for dental care.
Folks, you are getting ripped off.

Hi Ling Yai, Yes I think we all know we are getting ripped off by the American Health Care system as it exists now and has existed. The ACA covered me all the way (let's hope that continues now!) but is and was expensive...like I said, I keep asking my husband to move...to somewhere where there is not a kook in charge...but not so far.  So glad you got the help you needed by a caring reasonable doctor whose cost was cheap. I have multiple  serious chronic health issue and it's taken me most of my life to even find good care and it is beyond not cheap. God Bless You...thank God for yourself you live in SE Asia (Thailand) too...as you can see by this forum our country is now being run by a horrible mean nut case.
