Washington Times should honestly be ashamed to have their name behind something like this.

I just read the article now. I originally thought it was one of those meme explanation pictures you see conspiracy theorist used, but it turns out, it IS the article, from a somewhat respected newspaper called The Washington Times.

I thought it might have been a provocative piece with some value, but it is just a load of trash filled to the brim with vehement hatred. This is far more appropriate as a Twitter post in my opinion, and my conclusion for that is of the coarse language and terms by itself, not to mention the claims he makes are exaggerated and require an audacious flouting of human decency, which makes it both inflammatory in claims and in language.

Jesus, what the fuck? This is not even good enough to be an editorial. This is so much cringe from someone much older than me.

I wish people would drop this illusion of "Free Healthcare."

"The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.”

"Socialized Healthcare" is a more accurate descriptor.


I can't help but take this opportunity to toot the horn for single-payer health care. There, prices on health care drop as a whole due to the ability of the government to use collective bargaining to set prices. It hurts doctors, hospitals, and pharmaceutical companies, but helps patients. There are other perks too, such as lower administrative costs.


Single-payer systems tend to have lower administrative costs than those with many private insurance companies, where doctors and hospitals devote lots of time to figuring out who is supposed to pay them what amount. One 2011 study in the journal Health Affairs estimated that American doctors spend four times as much money interacting with healthcare payers than their Canadian counterparts.

Single-payer systems also have an advantage when it comes to bargaining down prices. Because doctors and pharmaceutical companies basically have no choice but to accept the terms laid out by the government, single-payer systems often feature much, much lower prices [...] The United States, for instance, pays much more for most health-care services than single-payer systems do. It’s worth noting that many multi-payer systems, like Germany, achieve similar savings to single-payer systems by having the government set health care prices.

maybe the guy who wrote the article wants to quit the job due to some internal strife, but not before first making an article that would drag down the reputation of the company he's quitting. he may be the one who wrote it, but it's Washington Times that's really getting the blame.
if that's the case, mission accomplished.

edit: oh goodness. i just saw his page on Washington Times. he pretty much worships Trump, and that's actually putting it lightly.

I was kind of surprised myself till I realized it was the Times not the Post. Their opinion section is a complete dumpster fire of this sort of shit. Also headlining on the site at the moment is Bill Nye is a child molester because he used a cartoon to explain sexuality and only children watch cartoons.

Have a look over the main Opinion section itself. There's not much reputation left for them to lose.
