This health insurance exec's Twitter thread on America's healthcare system, and whether or not it preserves a "choice" is going viral. Healthcare should be a right, and not a privilege indeed!

A health insurance exec's Twitter thread on health insurance reform goes viral | tweet by Wendell Potter O @wendellpotter Lately I've noticed some Democratic politicians defending the current healthcare system by saying it preserves "choice" for Americans.

Woman Has Bafflingly Simple Interaction with Icelandic Healthcare

Depending on what country you live in, "just go to the doctor" is a sentence that's much more complicated and expensive than it sounds. Apparently, for author Mary Robinette Kowal, the experience in Iceland was surprisingly simple. Like, holy crap, same day tests?

Let's put "Don't Get Sick" on the dollar bill because it's about to become the national motto.

Now, no one really thinks Obamacare's perfect, even the people benefitting from it the most. So when Trump and the GOP campaigned on making this thing better, promising better coverage and lower prices, people took them at their word. 

Why? Who knows. Anyone could've predicted what would happen: Higher prices for the sick, elderly, and poor; tax cuts for the rich. So you'll never believe it, but that's exactly what happened. 

Paul Ryan's wet dream is out, and, surprise, it's great for the rich and awful for everyone else. But don't take my word for it. John Oliver tore this thing a new one on Last Week Tonight, breaking down just how bad this will be for just about everyone except a couple millionaires. 

So enjoy a laugh at the health coverage we're all about to lose.
