Comment: The lack of debate (Score 1) 7

Was astounding. Especially since I heard at least three better plans- community sponsored healthcare (in which LOCAL taxes fund LOCAL facilities with LOCAL doctors, managed like schools used to be with a local hospital board), subscription based healthcare (in which the rich pay more to fund clinics for the poor, but everybody pays what healthcare really costs, not job based but rather what it costs to have doctors on duty in clinics and hospitals, whether you are sick or not), and finally, free market health care (with no middle man, but again, no assurance of care).

Of course, all three of these cut out the insurance middle man cash cow- who was Obama's cronies as well as the cronies of certain key Republicrats. Can't hurt the cronies, so once again any form of subsidiarity goes on the back burner in favor of federal control.

It's an issue for me only because it is a larger sign of political rot in the Democratic Party. But then again, I'm from Oregon, where it has just been revealed that multi millionaires being investigated for influence peddling have been granted *public defenders*, because apparently, despite over $200,000 in income in 2014 alone that failed to be reported to the IRS, they can't afford lawyers.

The weird thing is, I'm also for small government- governments limited to 100,000 citizens or less, run on an absolute right to life and private property for anything that it takes to maintain life.

The trouble is, that goes against your average libertarian, whose only difference between them and a crony capitalist is enough money to bribe politicians.
