You think... well, you would be wrong about your thoughts. I've certainly have not read all of the platform, only some of it, the parts I was referring to. Whoever wins the election, it won't matter much what they personally think or plan to do, the president does not pass laws. So Trump can shoot off his big fat goofy ass mouth all he likes but he won't be able to do much without the backing of Congress.

You really need to read the platform because you should not be confused & ignorant as to what you are actually voting for. The party, not the person, whether you like it (or believe it) or not.

Maybe you should read the Republican Platform before you claim what's in it. A lot of double speak as in anti-environment talk, anti-EPA put under Environment Protection. & the "Renewing American Values" section... eye opener for sure. I could go on but what's the point? They had a gay person speak! There were some black people there too!

This is where I got the idea you saw that is a "new problem":

Kind of like how Obama care solved the pre-existing issue while creating entire new sets of problem

Personally my coverage has a huge network of providers & I do not need a referral to a specialist. I can go nearly anywhere. But I'll still wait 2-3 months.

IMO single payer is really about getting rid of health insurance companies. Fucking parasites. Everyone needs healthcare, if not you this year, your mom or your child.

Thanks for your suggestions. Yes, now days if I need an appointment fast, NPs and PAs are what I get. However, you still have to have that primary doctor first & that is what I required, a new doctor. Nurse Practitioner, Physician's Assistant... sounds like the same solution from the guy from the UK. Mine just costs more, much more.

Last time I attempted to get a doctor's appointment I was told "we are scheduling two months out..." & my healthcare insurance is "premium". It should be premium for what I pay for it. I had to get a new doctor last year. After navigating the labyrinthine system I was able to find a doctor that was somewhat in my part of town & of course, 6+ weeks for the first appointment.

De-fund the shit out of a program, then point at it & say "look! It doesn't work!"

It's a good thing I don't have Myspace, LinkedIn, and Tumblr accounts. Twitter? I think I got two of them I started a years ago. At the time I'm sure I had a reason. I get messages on two different email accounts from Twitter, so I figure I have the accounts.

Maybe I can go cancel them (if it's possible). I see no need for them whatsoever. Or am I missing something?
