    My University requires health insurance to be able to attend. Before then, I have never had it before when I got slammed by 8k bills for a hospital visit and I can't even use it now that I have it to repair the further damage done to my body because its a pre-existing condition. There should be absolutely no excuse to give all Americans health care at all times. Yes there will be higher taxes, but if it means I can go to the doctor or hospital with the knowledge that I will be taken care of by my country, then I find no fault. Insurance companies are akin to Satan and have no interest in paying out to people and will fight this all the way. I have never felt so embarrassed to live in this country until I discovered that even simple necessities such as health care are denied to its citizens. To leave the nest of my parents home to be thrown in a world where nothing is safe or secure. After struggling to pay for this years tuition, I look at the money I don't have left and wonder if I will ever be fully healthy.

    USA needs national healthcare! The healthcare people use now is too expensive and impractical. People can't afford thousands of dollars for health care unless they earn $ 10000 a month! It's unbelievable that no healthcare in USA , richest country.. No worth to debAte just do it

    IDesk today reports a whopping $ 285bln. per year for drug prescriptions only in the US of A. If that is correct doesn'nt that mean on average $ 1 mln. per person in the USA?
    How sick is the land of the brave and the free? Not being an American, could you please enlighten me on this issue? I think this is much more important than reporting the shouting of some people in town hall meetings. Give us the facts first please, regards

    Venezuela: After violence and intense discussion, polemics law on education was adopted

    I would like to watch about this in AC360.
    This project is being criticized by several currents in the world and much of the public ecause the objective of the project is increasing the control of the state on schools and universities.

    The educational environment is a place where there is debate, difference of ideas and thoughts. Only then the human minds flourish.
