If you can't buy the food you starve regardless of whether it exists or not.So now the debate is we have better healthcare but its not affordable? We just keep moving the goalposts don't we?
http://www.guaranteedhealthcare.org/video_story/david-welch_rn_can-039-t-get-insuredCould you show me the people who were denied healthcare here because of lack of insurance or no money?
The hospitals can provide emergency care. Not rehabilitative care or preventative care. People die in the US because by the time they can see a doctor, by the time they go to the emergency room, whatever they have is so far progressed that there's no fix for it. My wife is a nurse at an inner-city hospital and she sees it all the time.No one wants to acknowledge the fact that if you walk in the hospital here they treat you.
In more then a few cases, it's because they have the money and they're in a hurry. If they need it to live, Canada does it and fast. There's private health insurance plans int he US that won't cover many of the same things that Canadian public health care won't cover.As far as Canadians by percentage I don't have that I'll try to find it, but are you claiming it doesn't happen? Does it cost them $? of course..but ask the question, if free healthcare is such a panacea, why are they willing to pay that said $? Perhaps they feel better alive and broke temporarily than free healthcare and dead.
If Capitalism had something better to offer in those days, they weren't offering it. Starving was the Capitalist choice. Free market enlightened self interest and all that. Did one of the few wealthy cats left after 1929 set up their own private version of the CCC? No?If only the war was what disbanded ccc why didn't it swing back into operation after say ..oh ..1946? As far as "exactly" I meant there was no other choice because instead of fixing the problem and encouraging capitalism to succeed FRD rammed CCC though in like the first 40 or 50 days after inauguration....sound familiar? By my saying it was indeed the only choice offered to the unemployed at that time in no way means I endorse it or think it was a wise choice. If you're starving and someone offers you a 3 day old dead rat you'll eat it, but of course if the kitchen was run properly a nice steak is always preferable.
Probably the biggest reason the CCC didn't come back after WW2 was the GI Bill. It's curious how something that was approved of by 82% of the country at the time, the CCC, now has to be demonized by Republicans who can't accept that a Democrat president cleaned up a Republican president's mess. May have been the first time, but it sure wasn't the last. It's really sad that the desperate supporters of one of our worst presidents have to attack one of our best presidents.
