Inspired by some of the responses I got to this journal http://humon.deviantart.com/journal/31040110/#comments

I couldn’t help but smile while reading them. :)

In the news today a hospital is charging a patient $153,000 for treating him for a snakebite.
I guess that's the last time he tries to take a "selfie" with a rattlesnake.

girlfromthebasement, I have wanted to move to Scandinavia for years, especially Norway. I expect it's very likely I someday will. My girlfriend has a disability, too, so I know what you mean. It's tough to move to another country for many reasons, and especially when it's a country with immigration laws as tough as exist in Scandinavia. It helps that I am proficient in Norwegian, both for immigration purposes (it's not a big difference there, but some), and for me adjusting (it's a big difference there). I just haven't done it yet, but I am sure it'll happen someday. I just lost my car, and that's really making me want to move, it's SO much easier to live in Norway without a car than it is in the US.

KRyptic, do you live in Germany? How is it that you can see the details of how our political system so much better than 90% or more of our population? That's a sad commentary on us.

That is exactly it. The same people that tried to limit the system in every way, shape, and form, and tried to hamstring it in every way they could, are blaming the system for failures directly caused by their own action. Many of the examples of how "horrible" the ACA is are ones that would be fixed by making it closer to a single payer system, but they are used as examples of why "socialized medicine" is a bad thing. Those people are trying to have their cake and eat it to, and unfortunately a large percentage of the public is ignorant enough that it is working. But higher level thinking is sacrificed in a sound-bite political reality...

The only good thing about our current healthcare system is the fact that they can't turn you away for pre-existing conditions. Some people are lucky enough to get cheap healthcare rates even though the care is extremely, extremely basic. Others who might make the same wages as those people are denied the cheap healthcare while others get the most ridiculous payment plans imaginable. They wanted me to pay $368 a month just for myself when I was making only $600 at the time. We just need a super upheaval type of reform. Of everything.

I would like to a bunch of comics with just these four. Make them a second group kind of like how Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland, And Iceland are a group. Also i may be saying that as an excuse to see America wear more people as hats. You're next King Europe

Isn't it strange that any reform in the US that even slightly indicates a social reform towards more equality is instantly torpedoed by the republicans right wing.
And these 'extremists' use almost exactly the same words for the last 60 years for that purpose (ie that's communism/socialism, better dead than red, only a dead commie is a good commie, yada-yada-yada...)
And if a US president forces it through somehow the reps try to so thoroughly veto, maul, pulp, and grind it down in Congress that even the best laid plans are turned into an unrecognizable mass of a slushy goo that nothing of its original intentions are left and only the worst parts remain.

And then, only a few months after having torpedoed such a plan these same Reps then go out, single out one or two incidents where something is now a LOT worse than before, and snidely report through their privately owned news networks that 'Obamacare/whatever-other-plan-was-torpedoed made 'EVERYTHING' a lot worse. And then have the audacity to pin the failure of the new system on the originator of the plan.
Nice work. Great system.
How do you ever believe that people will come to trust each other if the head honchos demonstrate the exact opposite of trustworthyness?

BTW: it's not much better in Germany, but at least we got the chance of voting for other parties or even founding our own local parties, AND see them represented at least on a local community level.

Wow, looks like America quoted most of my relatives in this comic. XD I, for one, can finally afford insurance, although my mom is still paying $700 (USD) PER MONTH for hers. We have a long way to go. :/
