Since health care is a for profit racket until they change the system to a not for profit system every one looses. It's hard for me to believe that people here really can't see what the problem is. We burn coal because we feel we have beat the system and the Arabs at taking so much of our money for something so basic as heat. Well how much more basic can it be than health care. Why have they made it so difficult to stay alive. The drugs that they make will sell forever unless they find a new drug or until they find that the drugs don't really work. So when you look at forever to make money on a drug seems like they don't need to make it cost so much. I decided a long time ago I was not going to lengthen my life taking a bunch of pills (thats my decision not your decision and so far it has worked for me) so there not going to be making a whole lot of money from me anyway, well Mr. Bayer will, lol. But when I see all the kids that don't get to make a choice I mean really and we say we are better than monkey's lmao.
People at this stage of society should never be to cold or to hot or hungry in my opinion. The world is going to change and as I see it we will not hear of nationalized banks or other companies being nationalized we will hear that they have been globalized. when we went to the "to big to fail" that was just another step. (My own thought here, If you believe there is a supreme being you might want to start a savings plan soon, just think what the going rate is for getting in there, maybe thats why there are two places to go an expensive high rise and a no rent shanty town)

Not any state that I know of, but maybe. My wife is an RN. Here in Maine you can become an LPN in two years, but an RN is most assuredly a four year program. The two year RN's went out in the 80's.
My wife works part time at a local hospital. Full timers get health insurance, but part timers "get a discount". As of Jan of this year we are paying $10,868 a year for health insurance for the two of us. If not for that one thing, she could retire.
