      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

"Ironically, the Administration's own signature healthcare victory poses one of the most immediate challenges to redressing inequality. Yes, the Affordable Care Act will help many more Americans gain some health insurance coverage, a significant step forward for equality. At the same time, without smart fixes, the ACA threatens the middle class with higher premiums, loss of hours, and a shift to part-time work and less comprehensive coverage."

 

Et tu, "Unite here?"

Yes, this is yet one of many excellent arguments for single payer.

 

On the flip side, there really aren't any credible arguments against single payer at this point. Private health insurance companies has proven that the profit motive and providing health care are at odds. They need to go away.

All very convincing and compelling gents, but what to do about the folks at "UNITE HERE [which] represents members across North America who work in the hospitality industry, airports, food service, gaming, laundry, textile, manufacturing, and Transportation" industries.

 

Very puzzling.

Obviously, we either need to implement single payer, or see those industries shut down. Point taken.
