    In a Post-Obamacare World, It's Still Not Enough

    http://www.cnn.com/2012/09/01/health...html?hpt=hp_c1

    A good example of how Obamacare will never be enough, and the quest for Universal, Govt. Controlled, Single-Payor Healthcare will always roll on.

    There is not such thing as comprmise on this issue. The end desire (of many) is, and will always be, State Healthcare/Insurance.

    State Healthcare won't work because there are not enough taxpayers to pay the bill. Obamacare will bankrupct this country in years. Not enough tax payers to many bloodsuckers!

    Bad comparison. The German work ethic is legendary. Unfortunately, the American "work ethic" for 55% is too scam your way into freebies.

    Can you provide us with data to support your claim?

    Work Ethic is a non-quantifyable factor, so obviously he can not beyond polling data.

    What he could provide, if he wanted to do the work, is the Workforce Utilization and/or other figures that detail the % of the able-bodies population who are working. That would, of ocurse, not be 1-to-1 for "worth Ethic" but it does tie into much of the same ideals.

    Conversely, since the issue is a non-material item, can you provide any source that would contradict his claim? Polls, studies, etc, that state Germany does not, in fact, have a high work ethic nationally?

    More like it's basically the same exact system.

    We continue to live under a for-profit, private insurance, employment based model. There were a few mandates added, but none of the fundamentals have changed at all.
