    I would gladly wait in line if it means people don’t have to ration their medications, go without seeing a doctor, or even DYING!!!

    How is this even a FUCKING DEBATE!!!

    And we are supposed to be the pinnacle of civilization?!?!?

    The NHS in the UK has it’s flaws, but you try taking it off us. Then we’ll see who needs urgent healthcare!

    So I will take this as a Bernie 2020 endorsement since he is the only one running on Medicare for all. Thanks John Oliver 💕💞

    Back in 2012 I went to the ER after experiencing severe back pain and blood in my urine. I arrived at the hospital at 8 pm, waited for 4 and a a half hours in the waiting area, in excruciating pain, until the doctor finally saw me at 12:30 am. It turned out to be 3 kidney stones. Oh yeah, I didn’t have insurance, so for the 1 hour treatment, which included pain medication and an x-ray, my bill was $13700. So yeah, you still have to get in line and wait.

    Thank you for being the only late night/media/any kind of news reporter that isn’t a corporate sleezebag sellout.

    Sanders is the only candidate pursuing M4A from the start. Warren intends to try to pass a “guac on a shit sandwich” public option first, then hoping to pass M4A a few years later.

    Oliver correctly points out Pete’s #ShitSandwichWithGuac / #RatsNest4AllWhoWantIt leaves you with the same choices of how you want to get fucked.

    It is just SO ALIEN seeing this from Spain, where we have pretty high unemployment and poverty levels and tax evasion from the rich yet NO ONE is denied medical care on the basis of money. And we don’t even have the best social safety net in Europe! You fuckers live in a cyberpunk dystopia without the cool fluorescent fashion. Get your shit together, tax the fucking rich and stop spending a third of your federal budget on overpriced defence contracts.

    Stan! Marlin Perkins stayed safely in the Landrover while Stan tackled some animal. The man was a saint with his mobile clinic.
