Baldwin Might Vote for Socialized Healthcare


EDGERTON — Count Sen. Tammy Baldwin as a “maybe” on supporting a single-payer health insurance proposal.

“Ultimately, I’ll look at the bill when it comes in, but I anticipate I will (support it),” the Wisconsin Democrat told reporters Thursday. “It’s been a long position of mine, and frankly, it’s really time that we address this partisan nonsense that’s been going on.”

…isn’t Senator Baldwin the member of a governmental body in which she can write and submit bills herself? Why does she have to “look at the bill when it comes in”? Can’t she write her own?

    Because Venezuela does such a great job with socialism.

    Also wants to make us like England sentencing that poor boy to certain death.

    Liberals have no compassion in their greed.

  2. Jason

    It’s not that they are greedy, it’s that they only want to do good with other people’s money.

  3. Kevin Scheunemann


    That is covetous greed.

  4. Major Booris

    After reading up a bit on MDDS and baby Charlie’s current condition, I think God in His ineffable wisdom sentenced that poor boy to certain death.

  5. Kevin Scheunemann


    Not your call.   Parents call.

    God gave us health care innovation in this U.S. system that has not been completely destroyed by socialists yet.

    We should use the blessings granted to us.

    We should not be held hostage by uncaring godless liberal socialists sentencing the innocent to death because the PR looks bad for them!

  6. Le Roi du Nord

    “We should not be held hostage by uncaring godless liberal socialists sentencing the innocent to death because the PR looks bad for them!”

    Utter and absolute nonsense. And that is the absolute truth!

  7. Paul

    Kurt Cobain yourself, white nationalist troll.

  8. Kevin Scheunemann


    If it is utter nonsense, why don’t socialists just let them come to USA for potentially life saving treatment?

    Is socialist ego that important to make parents and kid a prisoner in socialist health care concentration camp?

  9. Le Roi du Nord


    If you would use a rational argument rather than all the vitriol and hyperbole maybe others wouldn’t call you on your nonsense.  But you only seem to call names and point fingers, rather than have an intelligent conversation. Less vitriol and more substance might do you well.

  10. Kevin Scheunemann


    Who did I name call?

    Pointing fingers at the evil single payor policy is what politics is all about.

    I guess you have a “nothing to see here” attitude about the socialist health care concentration camps.

  11. Le Roi du Nord

    “socialist health care concentration camps”.

    Thanks for proving my point.

  12. Kevin Scheunemann


    Describing the socialist prison the parents and kids are in is name calling?

    I think you have done far, far worse toward me on name calling front.

    That is your example of me name calling?


    There is no delicate way to describe the evil of socialist policy here….and Baldwin wants to drag us down this path.

  13. Le Roi du Nord

    Well, you are already kicking and screaming so the dragging should come easy.  One would think, at least a rational person, that since the R’s had 7 years to come up with a replacement for the ACA that they could have had something ready to go as soon a trump was elected.  But they didn’t, and don’t.  And you attack Baldwin when you should be after ryan and mc connel.  Your ire is misdirected.

  14. Walt Kowalski

    Nord why don’t you address the fact that this child is not being allowed a chance at better care because of a bureaucratic dictate. Oh wait I know look squirrel lets go get that and deviate from the point Kevin is making.

  15. Kevin Scheunemann


    Walt is right, why don’t these socialized medicine concentration camp guards want to let this boy and his parents come to innovative U.S. system, still propped by some capitalism, for life saving treatment?

    It is no expense to socialized medicine camp guards except their ego and their evil socialist policy exposed.

  16. Pat

    “If it is utter nonsense, why don’t socialists just let them come to USA for potentially life saving treatment?”

    Just wondering exactly who the socialists are that won’t allow the child to come to the US for treatment?

  17. Walt Kowalski

    I think it may be these socialists…..

    But British and European courts have sided with the hospital’s decision that the 11-month-old’s life support should end, saying therapy would not help and would cause more suffering.

  18. Pat

    I don’t believe Britain has a socialistic government.

  19. Walt Kowalski

    Nice try they have socialized medicine did I mention their governmental model. Look squirrel!

  20. Le Roi du Nord


    Right on the money.  Britain has a constitutional monarchy, and the current PM is pretty conservative.

    It is interesting to see all the negativity on this issue, as  the proposed trumpcare would leave folks with preexisting conditions like this little boy out in the cold.

  21. Kevin Scheunemann

    You guys are hilarious…Britian does not have a socialist health care system….talk about denial of plain reality.

    Did you guys stop in Amsterdam and inhale before coming up with that?

  22. Pat

    But the government and judiciary are not socialistic.

  23. Paul

    Charles Rocket yourself, white nationalist troll.

  24. Kevin Scheunemann


    The policy is socialist. That is what matters.

    Individuals are sacrificed for greater good if they are an inconvenience to the thugs in power.

  25. Pat

    Is the doctors that made the decision or the government?

  26. Kevin Scheunemann


    Single payor system dictates what doctors can do….so they are both co-conspirators as camp prison guards ushering the victims to an early death.

  27. Pat

    And in the US the insurance provider dictates what healthcare will be provided by the doctors.

  28. Kevin Scheunemann


    Not really. People can choose to pay for service on their own.

    Go fund me, local health fundraisers, charities like children’s miracle network, st. Jude, etc.

    You don’t see that in Britain because people view it as “the government’s job”.

    Socialism destroys compassion.

    No one is also denied ability to seek healthcare elsewhere when it comes to medical tourism.

    What is being done to these parents and child is pure evil. Murderers have more appeal rights than this innocent child.

    This is one of many things that make socialist policy evil incarnate.

  29. Major Booris

    “Go fund me, local health fundraisers, charities like children’s miracle network, st. Jude, etc.

    You don’t see that in Britain because people view it as “the government’s job”.”

    Literally four seconds on Google, Kevin. Your arguments against socialist healthcare may have merit, but why should anyone listen to you when you present them alongside such easily disproven exaggerations?

  30. Le Roi du Nord


    “Socialism destroys compassion”.    So there are no compassionate Brits?  Proof?  Major proved you wrong.

    And just remember, the big stops for medical tourism may also be in countries with socialized medicine (most developed countries are), and they will be run by foreigners, possibly of the non-christian variety.  So be careful what you wish for….

  31. Pat

    There are a number of go find me pages for Charlie Gard. How much have you donated to them?

  32. Paul

    Go “find” a clue, dumbass.

  33. Kevin Scheunemann

    That’s great! They raised money for him!

    Why don’t the socialist prison guards let him go get treatment in U.S.?????

    That is part I don’t get.

    Why don’t you compassionless liberals denounce this socialist prison death panel???

  34. Le Roi du Nord

    Once again, the great k is proven wrong.  Yet he persists with his baseless attacks on those who disagree with him.  At least he is consistent.

  35. Kevin Scheunemann


    So what are you saying?….the socialist prison guards of the socialist health care system is now letting poor little Charlie coming to U.S?

    Missed that memo.

    Why is American liberal press not putting microphone in Democrats face asking, “this is what you want for U.S. health care?”

  36. Le Roi du Nord

    If you haven’t noticed, the D’s don’t get a say in the healthcare debate.  If you don’t believe me, ask mc connell or ryan.  You really have to pay more attention to current events.

  37. Kevin Scheunemann

    Why don’t you answer the question about this socialist prisoner?

    Why do socialists imprison this sick, innocent boy?

    For what purpose?

  38. Le Roi du Nord

    “Why don’t you answer the question about this socialist prisoner?”

    I don’t know.  Maybe trump put a ban on allowing sick kids into the country.  Maybe you can tell us, but please use facts.

    I find it odd that you would demand that someone answer a question when you refuse to answer anything .

  39. Paul

    [removed] – Paul, stop being a douche.

  40. Kevin Scheunemann


    Trump did not ban him, it is socialists impeding his trip because they want him to die.

    Why do you avoid the krux of the bankrupt liberal morality sentencing this kid to death for no purpose?
