Mark Cuban: Amend U.S. Constitution
to Make Healthcare a Right

PJ Media, by Nicholas Ballasy

Original Article

Posted By:Lalo, 3/19/2017 11:48:48 PM

WASHINGTON – Billionaire entrepreneur and owner of the Dallas Mavericks Mark Cuban criticized the Congressional Budget Office’s use of a 10-year score to determine the effects of the Republican’s American Health Care Act and said the U.S. Constitution should be amended to make healthcare a right. Cuban compared the CBO’s use of a decade timeframe to the ABC television show Shark Tank, where he stars as one of the investors that hears pitches from business owners. He said one- to four-year timeframes are better but “marginally predictable.” “You’re not going to be able to predict anything,” Cuban said during a

Wow. Billions of dollars and a sports team seems to make people think they have a super brain and can solve all these big problems with just one wave of their magic ring. Awesome.

Turn you idiots into geniuses with just a few billion bucks.

Making health care a right turns doctors into slaves.

NO! it is NOT a right - it has NEVER been a right and it will never BE a right.

Maybe he´d start with food as a right first?
How about water?

10 year amortized CBO scorecards are dumb. Cuban´s right about that. But if that´s dumb, then a Constitutional amendment to make healthcare for "chronic illness [and] serious injury" a right is tragically stupid.

#5, beat me to the punch. Making Healthcare a "right" would be the equivalent of enslaving doctors and nurses. Medical care was affordable to the common American citizen before government got involved. People used to be motivated to get out of college and get a job so that they could get a job with good health insurance or be able to pay for their own policy. Now the snowflakes can be lazy and idle while they linger on the parent´s policies, costing co-workers extra money (even if it is a "just" a few dollars more, since they are young and usually do not require medical treatment other than very expensive rehab). Other productive people can make it through college and a four-year tour of duty in the military before others get off their parent´s plan.

If healthcare is a right, then the government telling you what to eat, drink and what seasonings to use will not be far behind. Kind of like Michelle´s school lunch debacle on steroids.

We will also be plagued by doctors from India and the Middle East because no American will want to perform substandard care for slave wages.

Isn´t he on that show, "Shark Tank" where so-called business experts compete with each other to be on the "ground floor" of the best business concept presented in that episode?

what would the other so-called business experts say about the cost to the start-up if they had to automatically provide gold-plated health insurance coverage to everyone connected to the company from day one?

what about the "cost" for all of us if our nation should finally turn one of the best medical/scientific systems for generations into a pile of rubbish?

who stole Mark Cuban´s brain and where did they put it?

Opinions-everybody seems to have one concerning health insurance, especially those that don´t need it or is covered by someone else. It really bothers me that those without any insurance experience are the ones making the laws. The ACA was an Obomination that did nothing for anyone unless they were added to Medicaid. None of the physicians or the lone former insurance commissioner in Congress have any part in forming the new plans. Those in charge seem to forget the so called reason for the ACA-those that had preexisting conditions that prohibited them from buying insurance. Wonder how many of them died in the meantime?
Why does everyone want to reinvent the wheel or take everyone down in the Titanic? Help those that are ill and need insurance first.

I am confident that the Founders did not intend to include "pre-existing" conditions in the Bill of Rights. Mark Cuban knows as much about healthcare rights as he knows about basketball, which is near zero. Buffoon is the proper description as is embarrassment.

Gee Mark,in that case, shouldn´t food and housing be rights too? While we are at it, utilities should be a right, right? And how about transportation? We should have that as a right...oh, of course, clothing should definitely be a right. And why not entertainment? We should all be entitled to free TV, free movies, and best of all...free tickets to sporting events!! Don´t be so greedy, Marky!! I mean our Founders thought we should have the right to pursue happiness, so why not extend that a tiny bit and put not only the pursuit of happiness into the Constitution (since it is only in the Declaration of Indepedence now), but expand it into a right to happiness! Isn´t that better??

I think instead we should amend the constitution to read that healthcare should be a right, and that it should be paid entirely out of the top 400, 500,600, 1000... however many it takes to get down to Cuban.....richest Americans. That´ll also include all of the other richest Americans who keep financing the leftist agenda that everyone below them has to keep paying for.

I´ve got nothing against rich Americans. Hell, I´d love to be one. But I do have a great deal against rich Americans who keep proposing things that I will have to pay for.

So a person with a contagious disease that can cause sterility demands healthcare. A person that can provide it doesn´t want to risk their lives treating the person with the contagious disease cause they have a young family and wants to have more kids. But an amendment means that one person has to give up their dreams and desires to treat someone else. That isn´t a right, that´s forced servitude. Our bodies are our property. We shouldn´t have to ask others to sacrifice their property without reasonable compensation. People can choice to risk their lives to help others. That is what freedom is about. Choices. But forcing people isn´t freedom, its slavery.

We watched Shark Tank until we couldn´t put up with Mark Cuban any more.
Cuban berates and bashes any contestant on the show who manufactures his or her product in the United States. Cuban will not buy into any product that is made here - he says, take it to China.
He also committed a felony to pay for college. He brags that he raised the money by starting a chain letter. That´s a felony.
Therefore, anything Mark Cuban says is without value to me.

To slightly refocus poster #9´s point:

Rights are inherent to each individual, and they cannot require of other individuals any support...not in money, time or opinion. "My" rights do not require anything of "you."

I have a "right" to free speech, "you" are not required to agree with what I say.

Gay people/LGBTQWERTY have equal rights to live their life as they choose, they have the "right" to not face discrimination, this does not include public celebration of their choices.

"You" have the right to pursue happiness any way you choose--as long as you can pay for what you want. When you can´t, or refuse, to work and earn your own money to pay for what you want...you should accept whatever others are willing to give you out of the goodness of their hearts, not expect higher taxes on others to buy what you want.

Protesters pledged to keep demonstrating against the government even after Prime Minister Viktor Orban pushed through legislation that critics fear could shut down a university founded by American-Hungarian investor and Democratic Party power broker George Soros.

The United States is preparing charges against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, CNN reported Thursday. U.S. officials familiar with the matter told CNN that prosecutors have found a way to move forward, after struggling to determine whether the First Amended protected Assange from prosecution. The Justice Department´s investigation of WikiLeaks can be traced back to 2010, after thousands of U.S. government files stolen by former Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning appeared on the website. According to CNN, former President Obama´s Justice Department decided not to pursue charges against Assange because other mainstream publications also decided to publish the documents.

Liberals believe they are smarter than the rest of us. They believe that ordinary people should have little say in politics, because the so-called intellectuals know better. That is the essential appeal of liberalism to most of its followers. It's nice to believe that you are smarter than everyone else. But it's not true. That complex liberal mind, so intent on demonstrating its own superiority, has not governed well. Based on the record of the past century, since the time of Woodrow Wilson in America and Mussolini in Europe, liberal rule has resulted in nothing but war, recession, and social division.world of joy

Saturday marks President Trump’s 100th day in office, and to celebrate the occasion he got a bit too candid in an Oval Office interview with Reuters. Obviously certain elements of being president are pretty fun, but President Trump has discovered that it isn’t all playing with trucks and pressing a button that makes Cokes appear. Sometimes there’s work to be done, and as it turns out being leader of the free world is a lot harder than running a fake university and playing a caricature of a rich person on TV.“I loved my previous life.
