I agree fully. Profit motive should not enter into provision of life necessities, or at the very least it should be tempered with a viable public option.

I would be willing to pay out-of-pocket for both these services.

It appears that the purchase of Hahnemann last year was solely to grab the real estate. They bought it with the intention of shutting the hospital down and filing for bankruptcy, but being able to keep the real estate without including it in the bankruptcy so that they can profit off of it. Essentially, they killed a major hospital to profit off the land and buildings.

Capitalism!

Gross. And gross that that information can do under the radar of the many livelihoods depending on the hospital.

The ER has already closed operations and are not taking trauma patients. I genuinely have no idea where I would have been taken with Hahnemann not being an option.

Capitalism!
Actually, filing bankruptcy is more socialism than capitalism. "I can't pay my bills so let's get rid of them, which of course passes on the costs to others.

Socialism!

I continue to be amused by your militant socialist stance, while you live in the USA and benefit from capitalism every day if your life. You must really be jealous of those who've earned more than you.

How edgy.

imagine being so clueless that you think proclaiming that corporate bankruptcy laws are rank socialism is actually really clever and smart.

Not sure what this is supposed to mean because you really wouldn’t be able to tell the difference between a Canadian and US hospital in terms of how it looks...

I will not engage you. You are a troll who will not argue in good faith, and thus I have no time for you.

Ocasio-Cortez is live tweeting her tour of the concentration camps along the border. She is doing a great job of continuing to shed light on the conditions.

Nancy Pelosi's failure of leadership on this issue should cost her any legitimacy she still has. She is a joke and unfit to lead.

Agree. At this point she’s on the same side as Trump.

She has done nothing but “thoughts and prayers”

And it will cost the Democrats big time in 2020.

I think you'd be hard pressed to see her as anything better than a spineless politician. It's amazing how much some people read into her 'clapping' during Trump's SOTU address.

The Democrats are absolutely shit at a number of important things at which Republicans, for all their reprehensible immorality, excel.

1. Energizing their base.
2. Playing moderrn political warfare (their failure is sort of analogous to medieval warfare where armies lined up politly on the battlefield and proceeded to run at each other).
3. Choosing one or two key messages, simplifying them and then beating that horse until it's emaciated, dead, and 98 feet underground.

There are some in the younger cohort who are getting it (finally). Unfortunately the olds refuse to move on, and everyone suffers for it.
