Obama and Hillary - Corporate Candidates Who Do NOT Offer Single-payer Universal Healthcare

The drug lobby and the open borders advocates must LOVE Hillary and Obama, since BOTH candidates support open borders and the drug lobby. But wait a minute: didn't Hillary and Obama say they were for securing our borders and universal healthcare?

Yes, that's what BOTH candidates claim, but do not offer - much less deliver.

The drug lobby is PROUD of Hillary and Obama for conning the American people into believing that "universal healthcare" means continung to make payments to insurance companies, HMOs and the pharms. Hillary acts as if achieving universal healthcare is some Harry Potter type mystery only to be solved by electing Hillary Clinton to the White House. Nothing could be further from the truth. The blueprint for practicing universal healthcare has been in place for decades now - operating in every industrialized nation on the planet, except for the U.S.

The formula is relatively simple; single-payer universal healthcare REQUIRES a "NON-PROFIT" healthcare system where those fat profit margins and greedy "FOR-PROFIT" corporations aren't allowed to feast upon the host budget - there are no fatcat "FOR-PROFIT" insurance and HMO executives sucking down over half the nation's healthcare budget in the 161 nations practicing true universal healthcare. There are no "affordable payments" made by the citizens of these countries practicing universal healthcare. The reason Hillary and Obama are still selling America insurance payments is because to implement true universal healthcare here would require Hillary or Obama TO CONVERT our current "FOR-PROFIT" healthcare system to a "NON-PROFIT" healthcare system.

These two corporate-friendly candidates are NOT going to even recommend such, much less implement such a non-profit system. During last night's debate, Hillary and Obama told it on themselves and their healthcare policies: Hillary correctly pointed out that Obama supports penalizing parents who fail to purchase healthcare insurance, while Obama correctly pointed out that Hillary will garnish any American's wages to the tune of $250.00 for failing to purchase healthcare insurance. Universal healthcare this is NOT! This is corporate welfare at its worst.


Mark my words, in four years, no matter who becomes President, America will STILL HAVE millions of Americans who DO NOT enjoy fully-paid healthcare, DESPITE THE FACT our nation's $2.3 trillion healthcare budget is PLENTY, PLENTY enough money to cove the healthcare costs all American families would ever incur - problem is, the majority of our nation's $2.3 trillion Medicare/Medicaid budget goes directly to the coffers of the "FOR-PROFIT" corporations, their executives, their Board of Directors and their stockholders.

Those Board of Directors will defend their raping and pillaging of our nation's healthcare budget by telling you they have a duty by law to MAXIMIZE their profits for their corporations and their stockholders; and they are correct. Keeping such facts in mind, maybe now you can understand why it is essential America CONVERT its current "FOR-PROFIT" healthcare system to a "NON-PROFIT" healthcare system, in order to provide actual universal healthcare coverage for each and every American - WITHOUT raising taxes or creating a new revenue stream for these "FOR-PROFIT" corporations.

KEEPING SUCH FACTS IN MIND, maybe now you can understand how and why Hillary or Obama will NEVER, EVER implement true single-payer universal healthcare coverage for all Americans. Their allegiance is to the drug lobbyists who write our nation's healthcare bills. Hillary and Obama act and speak as if they are going to outlaw lobbyists and force Congress to start writing their own healthcare bills in the interest of We The People. Nonsense.

Americans are being hoodwinked by Hillary and Obama into believing they offer universal healthcare - they do NOT offer universal healthcare.
