Guy Beats BS Healthcare Bureaucracy by Sending 300+ Emails

After being put on a waiting list for way too long and seeing his wife blown off by incompetent healthcare administration, this guy took the matter into his own hands, with some creative emailing and the use of telemarketing software. The world is full of people complying maliciously, like this IT guy who came up with a masterful plan after being told he had to work on vacation.

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.

Yeah, Canada has one of the most comprehensive socialized healthcare policies in the world. Threatening to move to Canada because of Obamacare is like threatening to move to Amsterdam because you hate marijuana users. So good luck with that, ultra super offended Twitter users.
